This Weird War

I knew this was going to happen sooner or later: The US forms its own UN, reports the Onion.
In real news: The Fox News network poked fun at anti-war protesters, running taunting headlines instead of the usual news tickers while covering last Thursday’s rally in New York.
Lastly, American troops think that the ‘thumbs-up’ shown to them by Iraqi civilians is a show of support. To the Iraqis however, it may actually be interpreted as a foul insult meaning ‘up yours!’. Slate analyses the issue.
Which goes to show, really, that cultural differences shouldn’t be taken for granted.
