    The area of operations is located in the new forward operations base which is near this logistics support area. Baghdad International Airport is not the place to be with a Logistics Package. The Sergeant Major performed an after-action review with the non-commissioned officer on SEATA and operations security. Too many lieutenants are giving away the global positioning system over unsecured communications security.

    Whew, stupid acronyms.

    Otherwise I speak English, German, Spanish, and a few words of Russian.

    English, most widely used language i think and albanian, the second most widely used language... in albania. haha. albanian is good because absolutely nobody knows what youre saying (only like 5 million people, tops, speak it in the world.) Just in case anybody is wondering, it is a romance language, without the romance, or at least not as much as italian, french, spanish and portugese. speaking of those languages, i took all 4 in school. started with spanish (2 years)moved to french (4 years) then italian (1 year) and finally portuguese (1 year). yep i know how to say almost nothing in 4 diffrent languages.

    i took a trip to japan to visit a friend, and honestly i picked up a few words and a few characters, it didnt seem that hard at all, then again i only learned what i wanted to so maybe that makes it easier. damn shibuya is awesome and so is roppongi. miss both places.

    The most widely spoken language in the world is Chinese, Mandarin. The English language comes in 2nd place.

    See HERE for a list of languages and usage.

    Hmmm, it seems like they calculated just the amount of "speakers". I was referring to the amount of native speakers (I saw a list comparing that). Whoops :eek: !
