Pentagon starving combat troops out of respect for Ramadan



The Pentagon issued orders for troops in the field not to eat food during the day during Ramadan.

U.S. military members serving in countries that observe Ramadan are required to adhere to certain practices while outside U.S. installations. One part of Ramadan is that those observing the holiday fast from dawn until sunset.

When outside U.S. controlled areas, eating and drinking in public during daylight hours is against the law.

As far as I know, we left our bases in Iraq. We are sharing some facilities now that we have returned, but it is not clear that there are any "US controlled areas". Furthermore this seems to be saying that soldiers in the field, soldiers in firefights, risking their lives, cannot eat food!

Failure to obey could result in fines up to $685 or a sentence of up to two months in jail. “The commander’s policy dictates that airmen will adhere to local law, which prohibits eating, drinking or tobacco use off base in public,” said Sickles.

The only personnel exempt from this requirement are those performing strenuous labor outside U.S. controlled areas. They are authorized to drink and consume as much food as they need to maintain proper hydration and energy.

How wonderful. In addition to worry about IED's, and snipers, and suicide bombers, soldiers have to wonder if they are exerting themselves enough to justify eating.

As airmen and other personnel here adjust to this, Brig. Gen. John Quintas, 380th Air Expeditionary Wing commander, outlined the type of conduct he expects throughout the holy month.

“As ‘Airmen-Ambassadors’ representing American and U.S. military values around the world, we are committed to the concepts of tolerance, freedom and diversity,” said Quintas. “I hope that during your service in the 380th AEW you become more informed and appreciative of the traditions and history of the people in this region of the world. Please remember we are guests here and that the host nation is our shoulder-to-shoulder, brothers and sisters in arms, risking their lives for our common cause to defeat terrorism.”

What a confused fool. Quintas, whose name like the cheap hotel chain "La Quinta Inns", has it all wrong. The Iraqi army, what is left of it, isn't risking their lives for anything. Most have fled. The ones doing the fighting are the vicious mass murdering Shi'ite militias and the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, and they are fighting to maintain a theocratic Shi'ite state allied with Iran. It is American who is honoring them, risking our lives for their country. They should be thanking us. They should be respecting our customs, because we have come to their country to defend them. Not the other way around.

Like the movement to integrate gays and "transgenders" into the military, General Quintas has this ass-backwards. Obama has turned our military into a freakish politically correct laughingstock.

Politico wasted no time in running an article explaining why gay marriage is better than straight marriage.

July is Straight Pride Month!


June is Gay Pride month, where gay people celebrate the ways they have sex and who they have sex with, lubricating the public discourse with the very squishy details of their favorite methods of having sex. It makes sense to me that people feel the need to expound on how oral and anal sex has made them proud. But what doesn't make sense to me is that there doesn't seem to be an equivalent month for Straight Pride. Don't heterosexuals need a dedicated time to talk about their private sexual practices in a very public way as well?
