Golly gee, 'ya think maybe we're planning to be there awhile? I'll bet it puts the price tag on Saddam's palaces to shame. Rolling Eyes

It's such a comfort knowing my hard-earned tax dollars are going for such a good cause. Mad

If we are going to have permanent military installations, why not have an embassy?

Just a couple of many, though it doesn't seem to get much press anymore. All you Bush haters can point to how this behavior failed in Iran, with the fall of the Shaw turning the country into a theology based state that as of yet, has failed to put us on their Christmas mailing list. You can point to Saudi Arabia and how our presence has helped foster such benevolent groups a Al Qedia. But trust me, Bush is right! This time it WILL work!

I don't believe the concern was the embassy, I believe the concern was that some genius put the plans on the internet for anyone in the world to look at...... Rolling Eyes

What? You expect common sense? Having high expectations is a recipe for a let down.

Well, there you have it.
Proof, that having a degree, doesn't make you're smart.

And 592 Million? 104 acres?!
The friggin Lousiana Pruchase didn't cost that much.

Plus the Indians, French and Mexicans were easier to deal with. We're getting hosed.

Damn straight, dougp! We've just begun, and, so far, Iraq has been a cakewalk. Hell, 58,226 American soldiers and 1.5 million Vietnamese were killed in the Vietnam war, and look at how well that turned out.
