  1. How can one (notably a Lt. General in the Iraqi Army) address an audience wearing sunglasses ? In general it is considered somewhat impolite to hide your eyes while communicating with others but here there is more at stake.

    Why ? (Unless he has an eye affliction) he gives the impression that the struggle with Daesh is played on the beach. But obviously it is not and he, in his quite senior position, should be aware of the wrong image he portrays, certainly at international level

    The issue with Daesh has to do a lot with perceptions and expectations.The image portrayed by said Lt General will in my view not inspire people to choose properly.
