    I am sorry if you felt offended in some way by my comment, and I sincerely regret it.

    It intended to be a critic, as you rightly assumed; but on the form, not the content which I do not question...

    Communication and image.

    This Colonel seems to be a prepossessing person.

    By the way, is there any department within the DoD which would be in charge of selecting and training officers publicly expressing themselves about...

    In my own opinion, this one added to the list of the funniest threads of the day; just before "Jobs in Virginia" was posted.

    At this point, may I suggest an annual prize?

    Since I found your question as original as amusing I tried myself on it in introducing a bit of humor in my reflection.

    Marc,
    it’s all right. I didn’t enquire on the way he professes anthropology; I do not have the required academic background for, so far.

    Instead, and when I said patterns, I was looking at the...

    Nice shot!

    Isn't this idea what some would call suicide attack?

    A "cultural suicide attack" in that case.
