[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

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."

They could have made him look a bit less like George Michael, though.

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

Bravo, well said! Restraint costs lives, finish it!

Thank you for the ping , Lancey.

I just got back from a small event (I think they named it after me) and can only offer a nonsensical barbaric politically incorrect statement that is NOT sanctioned or approved of by your government.

“”. (Loose lips ...)

Don’t count ONE vote in the upcoming election until the troop vote is in.

You KNOW the rats will continue their practice of doing whatever they have to do to stop the military vote from being counted.

And in the meantime I condone the slaughter of everything that stands in the way of my grandchildren having at least the chance to try.

Count me among the proud infidels!

I eat pork, I disdain anything Islamic!

I am among the majority!

I love life, and hate the darkness that is Islam!.

The strategy is to get out without it being an obvious Taliban victory for at least a few months.

The strategy is to avoid it being a PR disaster like Saigon, 1975.

I’ve got to admit, seeing Karzi get the Najibula treatment would be tremendously satisfying at this point ....

Once again, we’ll have betrayed millions (especially their women) by building up a false hope, and then abandoning them, “traitors to the infidels,” to the head choppers.

Call me what you will, but I just can’t force myself to share responsibility for this travesty with its active OR passive architects.

It’s a travesty for us all, but a tragedy for those who believed in us, who will now be abandoned to the head choppers.

It is not my intent to diminish our national disgrace in any way.

Rather, I can’t help but identify with Cassandra as I see the great experiment reduced to an in-home pregnancy test....

The goals and strategies seem lame to me.

We (esp our military) deserve better.
