A Clash of Cultures?...

U.S. Probing Report of 40 Iraqis Killed at Wedding, per FoxNews.
Iraqis interviewed on the videotape said partygoers were firing in the air in a traditional wedding celebration. American troops have sometimes mistaken celebratory gunfire for hostile fire. Such a case occurred in 2002, when Afghan officials said 48 civilians at a wedding party were killed by a U-S airstrike.
When does tradition cross over the line between common sense and stupidity?
