The pub we visited (The Alpine) was a frequent watering hole for Iraqi students (this is 1979). After we left, the master stayed on as he was quite an ace at pool.

  2. Whats wrong with a commander having a positive attitude towards conducting offensive operations against our current enemy??? Pushing them "back" to Pakistan is a good idea. Part 2 is keeping them there or chasing them in Pakistan aswell!
