The presence of Islamic fighters from outside countries go by many names. Al Quaeda is just a generic term that I use for Islamic terrorists. With the use of oil vouchers, anyone with a willingness to kill Westerners can get all the financial aid they want from Bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, or whatever Saudi backed charity they apply to. They are all part of the same evil network of killers.

I am sure the newly elected government in Iraq will ask for financial aid. Since the US has been isolted by it's Allies, there is little chance that the financial support offered by the US will be open to bids from allies that did not support the coalition forces in Iraq. I think that Germany's interests in Iraq are basically moot at this time. The US and Britain have more than enough economic and military power to capitalize the entire reconstruction effort on their own.
