I have been programming on computers since the ZX81.
I am an apprentice trained Electronics Engineer with qualifications to back it up.
I have been repairing computers since 1996.
Yet to some people I still know nothing...

The British Army had that incident with the 'police officer' in Afghanistan, now an interpreter..... I know its 'hearts and minds' which wins conflicts, not carpet bombing and agression... but.. now you are going to have these people up front with one of your guys always watching/ stood behind them...

Shoulda learned from previous wars. Do your history on Vietnam and Korea, for starters, then wonder why Afghanistan isn't any different.

Or, you could just study history, a bit farther back, and try to wipe the whole race off of planet Earth like the invaders of North America did to the Native Americans.

Or Somalia, or the civil wars in various Middle East countries, or.......yeah, you get the point. Been this way since one tribe of cavemen wanted the caves another tribe were living in. Always a bad idea to use one of the enemy to translate for you.
