US Army needs wartime fact-checking, tightening

Is it possible that we don’t understand the Middle East because we can’t get the simplest details of their languages correct? Take the US Army Linguist Recruitment site for example. Did you know that Pashto, Kurdish, AND Persian are in the ‘Arabic Language Family?’ Wait a minute Orville, no they’re not. Those are clearly Indo-European languages, with syntax and vocabulary which parallels many western European and northern European languages. Clearly.

Uncle Sam, Tighten UP
