Had a Turkish officer try to buy a barmaid for the night, and the owner objected, vigorously. The Turk pulled a knife, and we pulled him off. He took the knife and cut himself, seriously, saying once drawn, it had to draw blood. Seems insulting a Turk insults all, including his ancestors. A Turk officer in Korea hung some thieves from the compound front gate. A UN officer ordered him to cut the bodies down. He did, but left the heads hanging up on the gate. It is an interesting culture.
