Festung Baghdad now open for business
Shoddy construction, cost overruns and all, the new US Embassy built almost like a fortress and covering an area the size of Dien Bien Phu, is now open for business. The embassy staff are happy because, even poorly built, the living quarters offer more protection than a trailer. Our Dear Embattled Leader is happy because his Kuwaiti buddies were able to pocket enough to satisfy them. The State Dept vendors are happy because it will cost $1 Billion a year to operate. And the Iraqis are so happy about it they organized a flyover of flying pigs to celebrate. That just leaves you and me who have to pay for it.
