Having solved all the financial problems facing the US right now, Chairman Zero has decided that $1Billion dollars is not too much to spend on our new embassy in London. In order to thwart terrorists of which there are relatively few in London, the Obama administration engineers have spared no expense to install a state-of-the-art, defensive mechanism......a MOAT! I guess since most terrorists are from the middle east which is desert, they never learned to swim.
This is what the new American embassy in London will look like when completed.
There's no word yet on how the stagnant, fetid water in the moat will be kept mosquito free but, since we stupidly banned DDT, the only chemical that kills mosquitoes effectively, all our diplomats and residents in the area of the ridiculous castle....um er...embassy, will likely die a lingering, tortured death from dengue fever, malaria, or yellow fever.
The marines who maintain security at our embassies will abandon the traditional uniforms in favor of this....
The marines will be equipped with maces, lances, and broad swords while the embassy itself will be defended by trebuchets on the turrets.
Just for comparison purposes, our embassy in the green zone in Iraq cost half this much.
