Can someone please help me with this question?:

What is the United States doing to improve Iraq's infrastructure?

Trying to pay citizens there to rebuild it as fast as some of the other citizens destroy it.

Guess who is paying?

So, the US is paying citizens of Iraq to build their infrastructure while other citizens destroy it? Where are we getting this money from?

The money comes from taxes paid by U.S. citizens and corporations.


What exactly are we doing to improve their infrastructure/what part of their infrastructure are we improving? What exactly does the phrase improving infrastructure mean?

Thank you!

Infrastructure means roads, bridges, water supply, sewage treatment, electricity, public buildings -- the things we need to live in the modern world.

These sites go into more detail about how the U.S., with some help from the international community, is repairing Iraq's infrastructure.

So we're helping them with their electric power systems, municipal water and sanitation services, road networks and rail systems, selected public buildings, ports and waterways, and airports?
