#1 Good luck with that multiculti equivalency thing you've got going there. It will gain you nothing, but please, do proceed. It seems one can learn except by doing.

#4 These simple minded fools. The minute these asswipes turned their backs, the order to fire at will should have been given. The entire lot should have been eliminated post haste.

#7 Lined up against the wall and shot, I believe that would have set an appropriate example.

#8 However, trainers at Vienna Maria Theresia Barracks complained that Muslim soldiers were often absent from duty, and could only be used for simple tasks in basic training.

OK, just HTF is someone allowed to stay in the military if they're "often absent from duty", particularly during basic training?

#9 They're conscripts, not volunteers. They don't want to be there, aren't motivated, and don't see it as a longterm path.

It would drive me up a wall to be their NCO, but on the other hand it would be a really bad precedent to allow them to opt out of service, given that service is otherwise mandatory for Austrians.

#10 Agree W/ #: 'Get', as in 'hit', 'kill', wetwork; in short, an action verb. too bad its not to be.
