We're in Afghanistan, lost, so I think we should do a 200-yard walk thru this dangerous area instead of driving the distance in our armored convoy. What's the worse that could happen?

I knew it!  Reading is NOT fundamental, it's dangerous.

I think we're going to need a bigger boat.

Or don't believe your own propaganda about how the locals love you, we're winning, etc.?

Go to some 3rd world shiat-hole for any reason what so ever and die.... no sympathy.

(military sent there excluded, but barely)

Been there, done that.
Well, not there, was another chithole.
Well, not giving books, was giving immunizations, antibiotics and stuff.

Hard to describe why this sort of thing seems like a good idea at the time, but it did.
Admire this diplomat!
Unless it was a CIA spookathon.

Oh yea, and Never get out of the Boat!

Got to be a mango tree around here somewhere.....

Ha! Awesome.

I really hope that the security detail put up a fight over opting to go for a walk instead of driving vehicles.
