On a Tuesday Pottery Barn quickie

Okay, so William E. Odom examines (and Amanda Marcotte examines his examination of) a question I've been wondering about myself for quite some time. Current justifications for continued US activities in Iraq tend to follow what's coming to be known as the "Pottery Barn" rule, the classic "you break it, you bought it."

Odom asks, "What if you go in, break the shit out of something totally expensive, and then can't afford to pay for it?"

What would you do?
