FAO Quotables

"But being right, even morally right, isn't everything. It is also important to be competent, to be consistent, and to be knowledgeable. It's important for your soldiers and diplomats to speak the language of the people you want to influence. It's important to understand the ethnic and tribal divisions of the place you hope to assist."

Iran's "America Can't Do a Damn Thing" Billboard

We are studying Iran's 1979 Revolution this week in my Islamic Fundamentalism class.  It reminded me of a picture a friend took back in 2005.  This billboard sits along the Iran/Iraq border, close to the mouth of the river (Khor Abdullah).

We always got a kick out of Khomeini's giant middle finger to the United States!
