Iraqis See Red as US Opens World's Biggest Embassy


www.commondreams.org

BAGHDAD - For the average American who will never see it, the new US Embassy in Baghdad may be little more than the Big Dig of the Tigris.

“It is a symbol of occupation for the Iraqi people, that is all,” says Anouar, a Baghdad graduate student who thought it was risk enough to give her first name. “We see the size of this embassy and we think we will be part of the American plan for our country and our region for many, many years.”

$1 billion a year to operate

The $740 million compound - expected to cost more than $1 billion a year to operate - was originally expected to cost $600 million to build and was to open in September 2007. Design changes and faulty construction caused repeated delays.

A new command and control center like Pentagon in Middle East? Till today they have spend around 3 Trillion Dollars in the name of invasion and occupation. This building clearly shows that this has no end and they don't care about what anyone else think about what they do.

Raise your hand if you care more for the Iraqis then you do for the troops fighting to protect them.

ANYONE?

I forgot. Everyone believes that the US is the root of all evil and the Iraqis are being occupied by Stormtrooper armies.
