  •  I for one appreciate your efforts to let (0+ / 0-)

    the rest of us know what goes on.

    I do know that in the seventies and eighties the diplomatic staff was expected to know the language where they served. This all fell away during the reign of Bush the Elder, and was even much worse under Bush the Younger. But of course, even way way back when, the situation sometimes was so dire, that you see novels like "The Ugly American' getting written to expose what goes on.

    It seems a lot of the thinking inside the Washington beltway these days comes down to "Who has the military right, needs nothing else."

    Offer your heart some Joy every day of your life, and spread it along to others.
