George Bush’s America Creates A New City In Iraq
AMERICA will leave Iraq when the Iraqis are able to stand on their own feet. But what does George Bush mean by leave?
The new U.S. Embassy in Baghdad will be the world’s largest and most expensive foreign mission. It’s vast. As reported:
The $592 million embassy occupies a chunk of prime 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 its involvement are changing.
The 21-building, 104-acre complex is something special. Most invading/conquering/liberating Armies leave behind smiling faces, a swollen prison population, deserters, pregnant women and stallholders selling Army surplus.
Not Bush’s America.
Leaving a 104 acre city in Iraq does not exactly meet the description of “leaving!”
Hang a city – it’s country! It’s bigger than the Vatican…
