Ghost Prime,

Not at all! I was deployed numerous times to Iraq and various parts of the Middle East (I was never deployed to Afghanistan). My MOS required me to be very involved with the people of an occupied area. It was during my first tour in 2003-2004 that I often heard the Iraqis use the word “Insh’Allah” over and over and over again. The ‘terps explained that it means “God Willing”, but after hearing it used in context I learned that it pretty much meant “whatever”, “whenever”, or “when I get around to it”. We started using it as a joke around inner circles and now I use it to see who might recognize it. BTW, I like your avatar!
