6. Same difference.
That oil revenue money could have been used on infrastructure projects in Iraq. But since it is being squandered, those projects will be instead funded with US dollars. It's like the enabler scenario with drug addicts:

You give money to your daughter for food and utilities. Since she didn't have to spend her own money to pay for these things, she has some extra. She uses this extra money to buy drugs. You tell yourself you made sure she didn't spend the money you gave her on drugs. But it's really the same thing.
