"Nation Building" Idiocies

This sorta captures the Rumsfeld/Bush Wilson-ite problem, doesn't it?

The American Embassy in Baghdad ...was designed when we were on the way to being the dominant power in Iraq. It covers too much space, has too much staff, and requires 3,650 people to defend it on a billion dollar contract (while thousands more work inside).

A full brigade is 5,000 soldiers.

The term is "hubris."
