But this is too much.

If you don’t want to be shot in the back by your Afghan training partners, the Pentagon advises, don’t offend their religious sensibilities. Don’t kick your feet up on a table, for instance, and never ask to see a picture of their wives and kids. “There’s a percentage [of attacks] which are cultural affronts,” Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey said in a recent interview.
Dempsey echoes the concerns of Gen. Sher Mohammad Karimi, the Afghan National Army’s chief of staff, who earlier this month argued both sides need to do more to “teach” foreign troops Islamic traditions and values to reduce the chance of violent reactions to cultural slights.

“It is our duty to teach this to them. Our indifference about these issues causes the incident,” he said.
In the past three years, uniformed Afghans have murdered at least 97 US and NATO troops.
I get it, we don’t want to be the Ugly American. Believe me I’ve seen more than a few examples of that over my lifetime. I took “Arab sensitivity training” in the 90′s before I went to Kuwait…so trying to be sensitive of different cultures practices and habits is nothing new. But to tell Soldiers you could get shot in the back for showing the sole of your boot to the wrong person?
Kiss my ass, Marty, you f-n toad. Your weakness offends me. It’s a good thing I’m not POTUS because that MFer would be looking for a job right now. Of course if I were POTUS he would sing a different tune because that’s just the kind of tool that he is. Just another politician, and a perfect example of why ALL Soldiers aren’t heroes.
