"The division also intends to display a rudimentary knowledge of Arabic language and customs, Formica said. Officers and sergeants are undergoing "cultural sensitivity training" in Jordan and at Fort Hood before arriving in Baghdad, Formica said. "

i'm not sure about the rest of it, but that part in itself must be a good thing. Think about it - how many times do you get pissed off when someone you are dealing with can't speak your own language in your own country? I know form personal experience people are a lot more helpful if you "try" to speak to them in their own language, and have a little respect for their culture.

Really, whatever it is that brings less deaths on both sides must be step int he right direction.

I don't know....I once asked a clerk in a Canadian store if the price of my purchase was 3 water buffalo, 2 sparrows, and a beaver or if it was 4 sparrows, 2 water buffalo, and a duck. She didn't seem too impressed :idunno: :poke:

Do you REALLY want the answer to that question? :rant:


I agree that it is a good thing that we are sending troops that will be better able to communicate in their country's language.

Now, can we get those that come here to do the same?
