The glory of war is often hungered and sought-after. But peace offers better trade. It's a matter of the times.

I mean does it even work there? I recall torture scenes in Harrenhal where people just say whatever they think the Lannister soldiers want to hear. It seems like a good example for why torture doesn't work in general.

If people don't want to be taken for Nazis then they shouldn't get Nazi looking tattoos.

In all seriousness, this is just a coincidence. Stop looking for Nazis at every turn and maybe you'll stop finding them where they obviously aren't.

But if we stop looking for Nazis then how will we find any Nazis?

I suspect mayhaps the Saudi leadership heard too many comedy bits about women being poor drivers and took said bits seriously due to a mistranslation.

Except for the inconvenient fact that the focus of the mission is combat, not civilian liaison; women make for terrible combat grunts. Now that's just not true.

Traditionally women hold no formal power in the Republic's government.
