And what is democracy, Marine?

Un-friggin'-believable! From WIIIAI:
The Sunday Times (London) has an article on the know-your-enemy training given to some US Marines etc. They get to be pretend Muslims for a week, wearing Arab garb, praying to Mecca, eating with their hands, play-acting kidnapping and executing westerners, planting car bombs, etc. One student said, Its helped me to know how the enemy thinks and appreciate how sophisticated they are. And the lesson he draws from this? Id kill them all. They dont know what democracy is.
Oh well. A lot of insurgents would probably feel the same way about us if they went through the Marines' boot camp.
