You remember the massive US embassy in Iraq? The one that’s like two acres smaller than the entire Vatican City State? It’s getting bigger.
With the State Department now looking to house a whole army of contractors in the embassy, some 16,000 personnel above and beyond whatever military the administration decides to leave, they are finding this city-sized embassy annoyingly small.

Uh-oh, now you've done it Mr. Ditz. The Rach Madcow is gonna go ape-s*#t all over you. You know, cause the GreenZoneBaghdadHilton is not no it's not bigger than the Vatican. It's "smaller" and the Madcow has the 'metrics' to prove it. You see, the Madcow and BigHead Ed actually were allowed to measure the entire US/Iraq Embassy courtesy of USSecState. Yeah and, USSecState actually paid for them to get there and done that. The "program" is called 'inbed metrics for propagandistic ancillary benefit'. The Madcow is all about ancillary benefits. You know, as long as she gets the "benefits." Yup.
Boy, talk about putting all your eggs in one basket…to put all the embassy (except those rogues running around the countryside causing mischief) and another 16,000 bad-assed contractors who shoot at anything that looks cross-wise at the US, what a target – all nice and cozy and surrounded by a friggin' wall. Whose idea was this, anyway?
Just thinking out loud here, but is there any indication that the embassy is being expanded precisely for the purpose of housing more troops — who in that case would be considered part of the diplomatic contingent and therefore not subject to the Status of Forces agreement?
"Contractors"? More like the "contractors" who work for drug cartels and warlords.
The US shouldn't be playing games; an agreement to leave is just that. This embassy should be owned by Iraqi people and should house a limited number of multinational people. Iraq is owned, run and protected by Iraqis against foreign countries as any sovereign country would be.
