Iraq - the language battle - Lost in translation in Baghdad: five years of conflict seen as a language conflict, or a missed encounter. A poor grasp of Arabic - often an inability or refusal to utter the even the simplest greeting - and the scarcity of decent interpreters in the American forces have proved to be a significant and long-neglected factor in the widening divide between the invader-liberators and the local population. And consequently in the difficulty in winning over hearts and minds at the expense of the insurgents. This is a study of the language factor in the resolution, or the festering, of asymmetrical wars past and present.
