    An Iraqi General leads the Pass and Review during an Iraqi Police graduation ceremony following one month long training at Camp India, Nasir Wasalam, Iraq on September 25, 2007.
    That "general" is wearing captain's rank. Iraq follows the British rank pattern, with a few variations. They use stars instead of British "pips" and an eagle on field officer's rank instead of a crown. Three stars= three pips, which is for a captain.



    A file picture dated 25 August 2007 shows renegade Congolese general Laurent Nkunda in Goma, Congo. Nkunda has asked the United Nations to broker a new ceasefire for eastern Congo, where clashes between his troops and the national army have raged since 06 October 2007, the BBC reported on 11 October 2007. Nkunda said he wanted the fighting to end and would start integrating his militia into the national army, as part of a peace deal to pacify the massive country, which he has until now refused to do
    And according to my sources, that's a major's rank. This one may have an explanation: not knowing this guy's biography, he may have been promoted since the picture was taken (although going from major to general in two months is quite a feat). With all the strife in the region, it may be possible.

    African rebels are known for self-promotion. RUF rebels were seldom below the rank of captain, and 5 year olds were known to be Sergeant Majors, according to a book I've been reading on Sierra Leone.

    lol, ya I'd say the integrity of the ranking system of Genocide inducing rebel Armies in Africa isn't that great.

    I just noticed that it says right there in the quote "renegade Congolese general..." This guy probably was a major, then tried to stage a coup and renamed himself "ultimate uber-general of the Congolese People's Army" or whatever.
