The cultural gap between locals and US soldiers runs deep. "We have heard that the Americans' sunglasses allow them to see through our women's clothes," said a man standing across the road from the contested US headquarters. "We are very angry to think that they can see our women naked."
Ahem. Note to Sydney Morning Herald staff and particularly Ed O'Loughlin. It is not the culture of Iraqis to believe in x-ray-specs.
It is stupidity, imbecility, ignorance, with some stupidity spinkles added, okay?
The efforts some skippy writers will go to to be culturally sensitive to a bunch of insane wogs who have just threatened bombings. Bombings against better armed troops.
They are violent imbeciles and they are making a very hard situation worse, not better. Worse. Not Better, right?
It would be great to read, somewhere in a regular paper the following:
The lack of knowledge about even the most simple ideas demonstrated by the violent imbeciles in Falluja is startling. The men actually believe "Americans' sunglasses allow them to see through our women's clothes," and this makes them angry. This is patently untrue but any excuse to get angry is taken. Anger is a happy place for these imbeciles. The men here are pigs. Pigs in the head. Any excuse to keep women inside doing nothing except painting their hands and preparing food and carrying out the nightly blowjob will be taken.
Instead, I have to go to the blogs, eh?
