U.S. Embassy in Baghdad - "Fortress America"
The main costs for building this "fortress" ( it's basic use is simply for governmental officals to meet and talk, etc. nothing that really benifits anyone especially, in my opinion ) were 700 million dollars of the tax-payer's money. Then, every year that it will be in use will cost approximately 2 billion dollars.
With this investment, it wouldn't surprise me if the U.S. was in Baghdad forever. ( or at least a very, very, v e r y, long time. )
Idiotic enough considering the U.S. is now very in debt, and how about 50% of Americans don't even want us to be over there anymore.
