    I guess I'm missing the humor of this. Service Members fearful for their lives driving like maniacs in a city. How would you feel if this was a foriegn army in your town and they were bumping your family members off the road?

    You just answered your own question. They are fearful of their lives. So, what do you think could happen to them if they were trapped in traffic? Use your imagination.

    I agree with RBA. This isn't funny, it's sad.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    I know all too well what would happen. I don't need to use my imagination. I said I don't see the humor in it.

    That is a great point. There's no humor intended. It's just reality. I've been over there. The driving is crazy. Stuff like that is not uncommon. Believe, middle-eastern drivers have a whole different mentality than we do. Did you hear the Humvee beeping the whole time? He's giving fair warning...when the folks don't yield, well...what are you gonna do? I don't even think it ticking anybody off over there...they just understand that that's the way it is.
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.
