Their reality has lapped our satire, again

The Pentagon wants to spend $5 billion dollars to turn the Green Zone in Baghdad into a swank tourist destination. Tip to the Pentagon: Maybe you should spend your money providing things like electricity first. If this thing does get built, won't it be target practice for every insurgent rocket and mortar team within range? The Green Zone already gets attacked fairly regularly.

This whole occupation is just sickening. And it's sickening that our politics is so dysfunctional that we aren't leaving, despite the fact that there's considerable public support for doing so. We don't even have a plan to leave. Why are we making Iraq's civil war our problem? Who in their right mind would want to stick their military into the middle of that? Sigh.
