I know it's your country

But you have to move so our embassy can be even bigger... like covering all of your oil fields...
The massive embassy rising in Baghdad's fortified green zone may not be big enough to house all the planned employees, the LA Times reports. "Despite its brash scale and nearly $600-million cost, the compound designed to accommodate more than 1,000 people is not big enough, and may not be safe enough if a major military pullout leaves the country engulfed in a heightened civil war, U.S. planners now say," the paper writes.

They had best make sure there are plenty of helipads on the roofs. Methinks those folks may be requested to beat a hasty retreat at some point in the future....

Can we please stop calling it a Green Zone now? It's pure propaganda. That zone is flaming Orange.

I thought black would be more appropriate... Blackwater and oil...
