Honestly, if you were a deployed troop right now, how would you take this?
I'd take it as a sign not to take my boots off.
The girl's name Sheherezade \shehe-reza-de, sheher(e)-zade\ is of Arabic, Farsi and Persian origin, and its meaning is "city dweller". In "A Thousand and One Arabian Nights", Sheherazade tells one tale to her royal husband each night. Having been betrayed by his first wife, the husband had resolved to marry a different virgin each day, and kill at dawn. So fascinating were Sheherazade's stories, however, that the king let her live so that he could keep hearing them. He eventually fell in love with her.
Don't know. I don't know what we said to the Iranians.
I would hope we would say something like, "quit killing our troops. You will pay for what you've done".
Honestly, would you prefer that we ignore the Iranians when our paths cross at a meeting or would perfer that we tell them what I said above?
