Iraq cries out for help from donors
Iraqi interim leaders issued a cry for urgent help from donor countries on Tuesday as aid only trickles through and violence rages ahead of the United States-led coalition's June 30 deadline for the handover of power.

"Iraq needs your help now," interim Planning Minister Mahdi al-Hafidh told a meeting of the International Reconstruction Fund Facility for Iraq and the Donors Committee.

He called on donors to "activate financial promises".

All can clearly see the good working/coordination relationship between Bush and his Iraqi Government. Really, I think this is exactly what I would want to hear hours after I had addressed the United States of America to show the situation in Iraq was well in my hands.

2. Let's take all that money we are giving Sharon and send it to Iraq
I would sooner see the Iraqi people get that aid
(the EXACT same aid in the EXACT same form).
