It'll be interesting to see whether the sprinklers work.

Oh, Subby. You are mistaken once again. It's not a terrorist target. It's the U.S. Embassy. Silly, Subby.

I'm far from a grammar nazi, but capitalizing 'terrorist' really made my head hurt when I read that line.

I hope they didn't include a drive-thru. That's just asking for trouble.

It's the size of an entire NY city block:

It even has guard towers around the perimeter:

The United States opened its new embassy building in Baghdad on Monday, a step meant to symbolize its transition from occupying power sto an ally of a sovereign Iraqi government.

Ahh, another $700,000,000,000.00 pissed away among the ashes of our fellow humans so some other humans can get fat and greasy ordering other humans to kill more humans so we can do it again. Oh, the circle of life...

I don't care who you are, that's farking funny. Actually, I think that immediately after the inauguration Obama will be headed to his lair in Mecca where he will conduct all further business.
 
2009-01-05 01:10:16 PM  
I certainly hope the US taxpayers are getting their $700m worth out of it.

That is really funny. In in another 4 years you will think so too.
 
2009-01-05 01:37:13 PM  
So, for the folks that think the idea of Obama being a muslim is funny....why? What makes that so hilarious? What if he was? Would it matter? Should it? He got elected in the United States, what does his faith have to do with it? Discuss.

I think the sad thing about it being a joke, is that at one time it was touted as utter fact by so many news outlets. I remember when my brother-in-law came to me straight-faced and told me all about Obama and the madrassas he attended. Right.

God I loved that movie. It's a shame it wasn't more mainstream.

Good to see they have another target. All the suicide bombings of makets and each other's mosques was getting so boring.

I usually go for an office with a window whenever I relocate. Baghdad...um...sumn near a fire exit on the 1st floor please.

When I looked at the picture in TFA, the first thought that came to mind was that the flag is already at half-staff (yes, I know they were raising it, but still...).

Does anyone know how well Phalanx work against mortar and RPG fire?

Also, hopefully the Beirut bombing has taught us how to keep unwanted vehicles away from our structures.

Also, I'd say the H.R. folks better be very carefull when contracting with locals.

Assuming there are measures preventing tunneling below the structure....

Who am I kidding it's a death trap. However having marines on guard duty would provide a good sense of...um...safety.

/safety, not quite the word I was looking for.

$700 million for what will no doubt be only the "first draft." A trailer on some cinder blocks would be a far better choice for the first 9 or so, *then* go all out on the 10th.

Watched 20 minutes of it last nite.

I started to doze off when Cusack entered the fast food restaurant, tactically rushed the freezer door access to the secret military bunker, and danced lock step with the mercs to the secret com room. Did the movie get any better after that because it was really stupid up to that point.

Burn After reading; saw that last nite too...I lold.
