US 'to Build 14 Permanent Bases in Iraq'

A Finnish lawmaker has revealed that the US is planning to stay in Iraq by building as many as fourteen permanent bases in the country.

That's a lot of bases.

It is not new news either (see here)- it does, however, sound like confirmation of the plans we knew about back in 2004. Take note of the work being undertaken on the $593 million dollar American Embassy in Baghdad. The biggest, most fortified Embassy in the world. The US has no plans for leaving Iraq anytime soon despite all the talk we are hearing from the politicians (with the notable exceptions of Ron Paul & Denis Kucinich !).
