The Largest US Embassy In The World Is In Iraq
American combat troops in Iraq may be heading to the exits -- or not -- but the U.S. government's enormously expensive intervention there is hardly coming to an end.

In a telling sign of how dangerous and chaotic Iraq remains more than eight years after President George W. Bush launched the war against Saddam Hussein, U.S. diplomats, military advisers and other officials are planning to fall back to the gargantuan embassy in Baghdad -- a heavily fortified, self-contained compound the size of Vatican City

“This is a direct result of the U.S. intervention, and I don’t want to say I told you so, but this was foreseen. So, right now, Al Qaeda is fighting Iran. That’s what’s going on. I’m not so sure that’s a bad thing in the general sense of things. We should not get involved in this. If Al Qaeda wants to fight Iran, let them do it.” – Richard Clarke

Rock The Voter News

“If we bombed Iraq, we would be working with the Shiites, which means we’d be allies with Iran. We would be part of the Axis of Evil!” – Bill Maher
