[From 2010 Blogosphere] The Pork Eating Crusader Patch Is A Huge Hit With Troops In Afghanistan
Bloggers via Business Insider ^ | Since 2010 re-posted 3/16/2012

Posted on 03/17/2012 7:36:31 PM PDT by U-238

With tensions at an all time high in Afghanistan following the Koran burnings, the urination video, and the killing of 16 civilians, attention is now falling on a long line of "Infidel" apparel and gear. Exhausted from how they feel they're being perceived, troops have taken to wearing patches and carrying items that label themselves infidels, and offer translation in local dialect. In the Muslim world an infidel means literally "one without faith" who rejects the central teachings of Islam. Military.com tracked down Clayton Montgomery at Mil-Spec Monkey, a large online seller of infidel gear, who says his most popular item by far is the "Pork Eating Crusader Patch." The patch includes an image of a knight in a Crusade's tunic, eating what appears to be a large ham hock, and lest there be any confusion — a translation in Arabic. They haven't gone unnoticed. The website Muslim Awakening, posts a picture of what appears to be a German soldier with the patch adhered to his combat uniform. Other items are more subtle. There is the Infidel Zippo advertised as: "This one is small enough to hold some personal meaning and not be in-your-face to everyone you meet. It’s perfect for pulling out at just the right moment to get the full effect."

It’s just a matter of time before the Tolerance crowd riots over this and demands that it not be tolerated.

Maybe these patches will cause a situation whereby the American Military will be turned loose to wage a proper war.

...anything other than brutal and total war on an enemy is wasted lives and money.

If the Americans are not allowed to wage war, then get them the hell out...

...and especially Afghanistan...it is clear to the "most casual observer" by now that there is no way to "win the hearts and minds" of the Afghanistan people...they hate us (except for a few of the women who see their lives going down the drain with the taliban in charge)....

Strategy? In A-stan? Are you serious?

There is no strategy in A-stan. The only “strategy” is to close the last base queitly, and avoid the alarming replay of “sack the embassy” with choppers landing on the roof, taking off the last soldiers and spooks.

Ooooo, just wait. These patches and crusader stuff will be banned by the Bin Barack administration before sunset. No more wearing them on uniforms.

Our combat boys won't be allowed to offend the sensibilities of any Muslim enemy even minutes before he's riddled with bullet holes and bites the sand.

Re “Is it kosher to piss on a burning koran to save the Earth by reducing CO2 emissions”? Yes, because you are using “holy water” to put it out, while saying the universal greeting ‘Peese on you’.

“....troops have taken to wearing patches and carrying items that label themselves infidels....”

.
At least our heroic troops don’t fall for that BS that islam is a ROP as our congresscritters do.

Let’s see how long it will take before they are told to remove those patches so as not to offeeeeeeeend the locals.

I’m afraid you’re right. There will be a Panettagram banning the Pork eating Crusader patch within 24 hours.

D@mmit, I’m retired but I still want one of those!

Website?

My nephew got a nice infidel tattoo on his shoulder while stationed in Afghanistan, he is an officer. It was very much an in your face response to dealing with the Afghans. He had converted to Judaism when he married a Jewish woman and figured they would kill him if he was ever captured. By an odd twist of fate his bit of American Indian heritage made him not only look ethnically rather Jewish anyway but might of given him that inherent taunt your enemy attitude.

In WW 2 and Vietnam, we flew over populated areas and dropped leaflets. Some were telling people to surrender...some saying they would be paid for each enemy weapon they turned in, etc, etc.

I think we should restart the program, only this time, instead of leaflets, drop pork. Grind up a few thousand adult pigs into one inch pieces, built some kind of dispersing bomb bays for C-130's, load them all up and fly continuous sortie's over EVERY village and drop 3 or 4 hundred pounds of raw pork on each one for 7 days straight. Saving a few plane loads for the grand finale.... a flyover of the Presidential Palace. That ought to eff all their minds up !!
