INSTAPUNDIT’S IRAQ CORRESPONDENT, Major John Tammes, emails:
Things have been really busy lately – as you know, events rush onward here. However, I did want to pass along to you what I have learned from the best ambassadors Australia has ever sent abroad. I don’t mean her Foreign Service, but her Army.
What I have learned so far about Australians, from her Army: they are an awful friendly bunch and always seem to be helping someone; they make friends with Americans quite easily; and they are very professional, yet not uptight about things (“no worries” is a favorite expression of theirs, and it seems to be catching on with some of the American contingent).
Oh, and one more thing – they have really cool vehicles, I attached a picture of one of their Bushmasters. For those of us old enough to remember cramming into M-113s, the Bushmaster is a dream ride.
Who wouldn’t want one?
