Largest Embassy on Earth

Largest Embassy on Earth updated


If you ever doubted U.S. intentions in Iraq under George W. Bush and the Republicans,
don't doubt it anymore.


A portion of the new U.S. embassy under construction is seen from across
the Tigris river in Baghdad, Saturday, May 19, 2007. The new $592 million
embassy occupies a chunk of prime Baghdad real estate two-thirds the size
of Washington's National Mall, with desk space for about 1,000 people behind
high, blast-resistant walls. The compound is a symbol both of how much the
United States has invested in Iraq and how the circumstances of U.S. involvement
are changing.

U.S.
Embassy in Iraq to be biggest ever

Leahy's
got it right: “They want hundreds of additional embassy staff who they
cannot safely house within the new embassy compound. It's time for a reality
check.”

Ya think?

The Republican's foreign policy plan can be summed up in three words: Targets 'R Us.

UPDATE: What does the largest base on earth have to do with a castle? Cujo359 explains. Scary.
