2. It is not an "Iraq aid' bill. The money is to further the Crusade

The purpose of the Crusade is to kill Muslims and seize oil for US companies, not provide aid.

As a matter of fact, the regime has decreed that the UN Food Program, the only source of food for an untold percentage of the Iraqi people, will be ended.
