US military guide to Iraq goes online: “A VALUABLE guide to Iraq published by the US military has gone online.
It points out that the country has its own monarchy with an elected legislature.
The country is now guarded by British troops to prevent the Germans from gaining control.
While most Americans and Europeans who have gone to Iraq didn’t like it at first, nearly all of these same peoplechanged their minds.
‘That tall man in the flowing robe you are going to see soon, with the whiskers and the long hair, is a first-class fighting man, highly skilled in guerilla warfare. Few fighters, in any country, in fact excel him in that kind of situation. If he is your friend, he can be a staunch and valuable ally. If he should happen to be your enemy – look out!’
More fascinating advice [from the 1940s], here.”
