Iraqi Army Training

The “good news”, as they say, from Iraq is that that:

In the last six months, the Iraqi Army and Iraqi Police have made great improvements under the guidance of 1st Battalion The Irish Guards.

Extensive footage of the crack Iraqi army training under the guidance of the Western armed forces over the fold.

This is incredibly racist. Star jumps are not part of Iraqi or Arab culture and so obviously they can’t do it. If I told your average Aussie in the street to assemble an arghilah, I doubt very much if they could do it.

Riiiight, so then ‘insider’, do you think their inability to do starjumps is in their DNA? Or is it possible that if a clip was made of some Aussies from the street fumbling together a water pipe that people might just be able to have a chuckle over it without being labelled “racist”?

LoL, now that is hilarious, I doubt there is a star jumping gene, it is not very hard, though some of them were just jumping and clapping. The Irish dude is showing them how its done, how hard can it be to follow?
