It's weird how journalists keep writing things like "the roof of the US embassy in Iraq". Aside from the fact that "embassy" means the people there, and they probably mean the embassy building, hardly anyone seems to know just how large that compound is. It's essentially a giant occupation command center, the size of Vatican city, complete with American supermarkets, restaurants, etc., staffed with 16K people.

So no, there's no "roof of the embassy" or "the entrance gate" or anything like that.

If someone who invaded your country operates an entire walled-off city within the center of your capital city, how long after the war would you find that acceptable?
