Iraqs debt at around $120 billion looks now by the effort of the US to be eased a bit at least. I do not question that; a debt built up by a dictator should the free Iraq not have to stand up too. However why don't we also forgive the debts of say Argentina and Brazil also hovering around $100 billion and also built up under a dictatorship? These debts are heavy on the countries and have several times forced them into restructuring according to the word of the IMF and World Bank so they can get new loans only to push forward the burden. Any thoughts?
