In it for the long haul....Baghdad embassy almost done.

Link to article.

You may think this is a good idea, but it aint. No good can come from an attempt at a permanent operation there. Sure the embassy needs to be secure, but this is a freakin base. An island in the sun. History repeats itself again. No invading and occupying force has ever had the might to stick it out in Baghdad, not the Brits, the Perisans, or the Romans. It is a pipe dream. So look at what a half a billion will buy you. And if you thinking about joining the Army or Marines, look where you are going to be touring at! Hey we know it's all about the oil, and with good reason, but there are better ways to accomplish that. You catch more flys with honey than vinegar. Lets try some diplomacy. Lets dangle some incentive and get everyone on the same page. But alas that will never happen when you have a bully in the Oval Office. Cockstrong? Sure, but God only gave man enough blood to run one head at a time....
