How fitting.

We're building the new, improved Hanging Gardens of Babylon as our embassy in Baghdad.

That's to compensate, I guess, for desecrating the goddamned archaeological site of the ORIGINAL! Motherfuckers. It was only one of the Seven Wonders of the World, you ignorant fucks.

A senior US marine officer says he is willing to apologise for the damage caused by his troops to the ancient Iraqi site of Babylon.

US forces built a helicopter pad on the ancient ruins and filled their sandbags with archaeological material in the months following the 2003 invasion.

Does this LOOK like a place to put a fucking helicopter pad to you?!

Sorry, I was an anthropology major (with an abiding interest in archaeology), so this pisses me off no end.
