    And we wonder why people hate us? What right exactly did we have to spend that much money on that big of a project?

    This article has been mentioned before in the forums, and I am sure the supporters of this place will come piping in any minute now...

    If it were not being built with maximum security in mind then someone would find fault with that as well.

    I just thought of something! There's still three trillion dollars "missing" from the Pentagon. And billions more has "gone missing" in Iraq since Donald Rumsfeld first noticed (before 911) the "missing" Pentagon trillions. Ooopsie.

    Let's see...0.02% of 3 trillion dollars would make it so I never had to pay the fed another "income tax" "dollar" for the rest of my life...I hope they find it.:praying:

    It's probably laying right beside all Hussein's wmd's in those aluminum tubes next to the forged "yellowcake" document and the Downing Street memos.

    I posted this several times in these forums before, but no one seemed to think it was a big deal, IOW, anything Bush et al decides to do is a-ok. This administration has wasted more money and "lost" more money that is unaccounted for probably than any administration in US history. But as long as it's Bush et al, it seems a-ok to the Bushites. Sad.

    Hey, we might as well take our tax checks made out to Internal Revenue and light a match to them. That's what this is - do we really think after spending all those billions on this palace the monsters over there won't blow it up?

    Why don't the big news organizations report on this over and over and over? I keep hearing how liberal the press is, so how come it isn't major headlines everywhere so the American people would know how their money is being squandered again?


    --------------------------

    It will be a nice state of the art structure (Babylon) that the Anti-Christ can use to attack Israel one day. Kinda makes me sad knowing our country set it all up. Oh, well. I'm glad America isn't my final home.

    Sorry I missed those threads LE as I certainly would've supported ya, for this building makes me nauseous. It is such a preposterously absurd edifice to be nearly beyond belief. Even beyond the 1/2 billion+ it will cost to complete, the estimates for the annual cost of running this facility are around $1.2 billion annually. The largest of its kind and rivals the space of the Vatican. I'm starting to wonder who the actual intended occupant(s) is to be. I wonder too how much they'd save if they cut out the swimming pools, tennis courts, cinemas, retail stores and restaurants and maybe even allowed the local fire department of this re-built nation to provide fire fighting responsibilities. Unless, they don't think the nation will ever be rebuilt to where they can do that?

    I mentioned this compound in a sermon I preached on Revelation 17 a while back. The woman is Babylon. We're just making her strong. (As for the rest, it has long been my opinion that the beast is the RCC, with the backing of the European governments, and if you look at the new EU flag, parliament building, symbols, etc. and tie this in with the "peace treaty" agreed to by the RCC and Islam... But, it's all simply my opinion. Except that the woman that's riding the beast is Babylon is not opinion; it's Scripture.)

    Doesn't our 51st, the Great State of Iraq, deserve a nice state capitol building?

    Actually, I believe Iraq is 52, we apparently picked up an extra State in 1948 and no one has figured out how to fit that extra star onto the flag. ;)

    Baghdad Embassy Plans Turn Up Online

    Ummm...it would appear BergerDivineYeager.com is now experiencing technical difficulties. It would appear that the State Dept. is not pleased that information on the new shopping mall was disclosed to the public...
