Why was this not on every front page today?!

Yesterday, Japan committed to $1.5 billion in Iraq aid. Didn’t the media tell us no other country was going to offer any “real money” for rebuilding Iraq? And Japan’s generosity came before the U.N. Security Council resolution passed.

Japan’s economy has been sluggish for 10 years. I doubt the government would be writing a billion-and-a-half dollar check if they thought they were just peeing down a rat-hole.
