I don't think thats the right approach to it. These mosques probably get funding from rich investors from other countries. It's not as simple as: "Hmmm we have 1 million dollar, should we spend it on a mosque or on a hospital." Hospitals are getting build too but those aren't updated all the time. The mosques are very big and just get a lot of attention.

because, those mosques are not under construction, and the mosques were planned by saddam, so when the war started, the constructrion of mosques was cancelled, or it seems by the pictures

Big waste of money, time, materials, effort. Huge useless project, they can use the money in upgrading the crumbled infrastructure or building new housing projects.

Looks like something out of Naboo...

Oh and with this whole "mosques are a waste of money", imagine if they never built St. Patrick's cathedral in Manhattan, or St. Peter's basilica in Rome.

Or if Frank Lloyd Wright never built the Unity Temple in Oak Park. Or Gaudi never designed the Sagarada Familia in Barcelona.

I'm an atheist but it is astonishing to me how many people on these boards think that zero arcitectural wonder or good use can come out of religious buildings.
