You want how much?

George Bush seems intent on warring this nation into bankruptcy with a with requests for a further $80 billion for Iraq that includes $1.5 billion for a new Iraqi embassy. As Atrios noted, it's the same amount that the US is spending on a the Freedom Tower, the building that will replace the World Trade Center, which will be the tallest building in the world.

What's this embassy supposed to be, some monument to rapacious greed?
