I believe the underlying reason we rebuild countries is, to promote our system of government, democracy. It worked on the Japs and Germany. Prolly aint gonna work with the muzzies.
I don't know if you can keep it unpolitical in a situation like this; since the govt. and human factor always comes into play. The county road nearest to me had fallen into disrepair, really bad potholes. They came in last year, efficiently ground off the surface. Then I noticed a street sweeper with water, go up and down the road all day long, way after the road was prepared for pavement. That's the kind of waste I notice; you know, like the old cliche of six guys standing around watching one guy lean on a shovel
Similar story, a town came in to clear a sewer main, by blasting high pressure water through the system. The main got cleared, but the pressure blasted black water up through all the residential toilets and drains, causing massive damage to the homes!
I heard the Romans kept the roman public baths going for 400 years. They took wood for the fires from forests all over europe. 50,000 citizens could bathe in hot water in one of their complexes. Of course, that was all maintained by slave labor. I was under the impression that the roman empire fell when they let in way too many foreigners....
