Constructive Criticism

According to the BBC Brigadier Nigel Aylwin-Foster wrote an article in Military Review about the US military in Iraq saying: “Officers displayed cultural ignorance, self-righteousness, over-optimism and unproductive management…”

American officers are a bit upset with the Brigadier, but that is essentially what happened when the 82nd Airborne went into the city of Fallujah in the Spring of 2003. Without a translator, they didn’t understand what the local people were protesting when the military took over a local school. The protest turned violent; local people died; and the sad history of the destruction of Fallujah had begun.
