Romanian and Assyrian Aramaic similarity
Something rather interesting about Romanian, my native language, in relation to Assyrian Aramaic. Quote from this link: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m -->.

"As far as is known, there are only a very few languages that take their
definite article at the termination of the noun they modify. In the Semitic
languages, it is the Old Aramaic language that has this peculiarity. Among the
Indo-European languages, it is the Romanian language that takes its definite
article at the very end of the word it qualifies."

All the guy says is true, we use definite article at the end and it changes form with gender, number and case. Maybe those deployed solders spoke Aramaic :-)
...and Bulgarian, Macedonian, Albanian, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Icelandic, and Basque. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->
