10 billion pounds of British Investment! Wow! That's most likely initial investment. Yeah, I'd have to agree, the HCL might very well be complete for the British moving forward in Iraq and including infrastructure rebuilding.

Thanks Wiljor...It's reassuring to read that Iraq's future is the main concern at this level...The people mentioned here wouldn't be focusing their attension toward Iraq unless there is a positive outlook for Iraq's future...
