Subcontracts are not off limits to the Coaliton of the Un-Willing. AP has an article Germany's Siemens Awarded Iraq Contract.
Siemens AG said Thursday it will develop a cellular phone network in Iraq - the first reconstruction contract publicly announced by a firm in Germany, which vehemently opposed the U.S.-led war.

Siemens also is in talks to supply parts for two power stations in Iraq, company spokesman Peter Gottal said.


Siemens signed a contract before Christmas to set up the cell phone network in northern Iraq for Kuwait's Wataniya Telecom, Gottal said. The Kuwaiti company is the local partner of AsiaCell, which operated cell networks in Kurdish areas of northern Iraq during Saddam Hussein's rule.
No numbers.
