Dissed, Iraqi Style

 

Some time back I wrote this about Mike Francis and his adventures with the Oregon National Guard in Iraq.

Well, Cpt. Kotz and his band of brothers made it back to Al Sus. And guess what? There was no one there. I leave it to the reader and anyone willing to do some indepedent research to determine if this was a perceived or real slight. Could have been "lost in translation," Cpt. Kotz. You never know.

Anyone know anything about Iraqi tribal customs? Seems there might be something about inviting someone to a meal, and then leaving town. And somehow, I don't think it means you want them to come back for cheesecake later.
