    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    The point is that they are not dumb, but that they have a culture that does not permit trust. The issue isn't a lack of competence at individual skills, but the inability to cooperate with anyone outside of the clan, tribe or unit. The individual Arab is not a bad fighter. In fact, they do very well in small group actions, especially in unconventional operations, but they cannot make the leap to conventional warfare. This is why they are easy to conquer but difficult to govern.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
