News Clippings

It's interesting to note the existence of the military's Center for Advanced Cultural Learning, which serves as a distance learning portal for the U.S. Marines with language instruction and cultural awareness modules.

The site also offers a news service with a "Hot Pick of the Week" for which the topic is almost always the kindler, gentler armed forces. These stories often come from reputedly more learned (and more liberal) news sources, such as the New York Times. It also publishes a more dystopic Global Threat Assessment, also composed of selections from online news from the "Public Internet."

Those who prefer virtual combat, can consider these top videogame weapons. Too bad "cultural learning" isn't among them.
