Thanks, But No Tanks

Despite being asked nicely, Russia has declined to send any peacekeeping forces into Iraq.

Somebody remind me again--which country benefited the most from the Oil-For-Food scam? I won't name names, but somebody's got to step up to the plate-ski and take one for the comrades. You helped sustain the dictatorship, you help clean up after it.

To be fair, though, Russia has offered some economic aid, including the possibility of forgiving half of Iraq's debt.
