Not after crippling it afer 10 yares of sanctions, desroying infustructure and all the main institutions and not least robbing all the oil. But even then ur probably right. Leaving them to their own devices will be better because the only people to benefit from reconstruction will almost certainly be perpertrators of the illeagal war.
