In writing that last post, I realized that there's a really fucked up undercurrent to this whole reconstruction contracts debate.

One thing people keep saying is that countries like Germany and France aren't sacrificing lives for the war, so they shouldn't be allowed to make money off of the war. Let me repeat that: you have to give lives to get money.

That's the price of admission here. If you're willing to give up HUMAN BEINGS, you can get some cash. Look, I know where our priorities are, and how important money is, but still. It's just fucked up to see that equality so blatantly laid out.
