    Fairer question:
    Is there a chance in hell these overpopulated, misapportioned, dictator lead, lands would be better off from 2000 to 2015 with or without anyone else's involvement?

    There's babies galore, and No food or Jobs, just bigger tribes in fake borders.

    No, and we sure could have used that 3 trillion dollars. Hell, for that much money we could have 1000 people living on the moon.

    What it shows, is that it exploded after the invasion, leveled out while continuing, then exploded again. Which brings me back to the conclusion, no its not better.
