The Brits and Us in Iraq

Here is something amusing and light hearted about some cultural differences between the Brits and us. Read the whole story (it’s not long), but here are a couple of paragraphs to give you the flavor of the thing:

US Corporal Mike Kennard said: "I really like how people always seem to find time to make a brew, whether it is half an hour before we take out artillery positions or half an hour after we take in incoming artillery. Everyone sits around and has a brew and it takes some of the stress away."

His boss, Captain Rick Mattoso, said: "When we called in a fire mission to blow something up, one of the guys in a Scimitar said ’let’s sit down and have a brew’ in the middle of incoming artillery."
