The other day on the phone, my husband told me about the many young Iraqi boys who have learned English over the past year by hanging around Soldier checkpoints. He said they're there every day and that their English is really quite good, despite never having had formal instruction. However, they're also picking up the foul language that comes with soldiering, so it's not uncommon to hear a string of swear words or a horrifying insult come out of these teens. "Now there's your cultural cross-pollination," my husband quipped.

I wonder how well the soldiers have learned to cuss in Arabic as a result of this cultural exchange.

GI's have been giving (and taking) language lessons from LNs since before the Romans.

Remember Hawkeye teaching the Koreans "Frank Burns eats worms" and "You said it ferret face"?

Yes, thanks to the American occupation of Iraq, young Iraqi boys can proudly proclaim:

"Get out of the fucking car you towel headed bastard!"
