Farting is un-Islamic: Marines ban farting to avoid offending Muslims

 The Fart of War

Marines ban farting to avoid offending Muslims

This comes right after homo- sensitivity indoctrination, forcing hijabs on American females in the field, cooking halal-goats for tribal elders and not eating in front of the Taliban during Ramadan.

It would be better to gas the idiots who force this idiocy on  the Marines.

There are so many weird aspects of this story. Don’t these Marines have mothers, or someone in their lives who told them as children that audible passing of gas was offensive? And the high command has to tell them to cut it out because it offends Afghans, as if such a reaction were different from that of any normal person? And unfortunately, the friendly-fire jihad attacks by Afghans that regularly punctuate the working relationship between U.S. and Afghan troops are not going to be ended by this small gesture in “trust building.” “For Marines in Afghanistan: be careful where you fart,” by Gina Cavallaro in Military Times, August 23 (thanks to JW):

Marine Corps Times is a family newspaper and we only rarely have offensive language in our stories.But this week the word “fart” appears in a story I wrote about the importance of trust between Marines and the Afghan national army soldiers they work with.

I didn’t want to write this little blog entry about farts. It’s not even on my beat. But my colleague Dan Lamothe, whose byline you have seen here quite often, shamed me into it.

“You owe it to all Marines,” he told me.

So here’s the news: audible farting has been banned for some Marines downrange because it offends the Afghans.

I know there are many things in the Afghan culture that don’t seem normal to Americans and it’s hard to spend seven months working in someone else’s back yard. Still, the Marines I saw downrange are doing a pretty good job at trying to do the right thing around the Afghans.

They’re not supposed to cuss because it could be misunderstood (that one goes out the window a lot). And they stay away from talking about politics, religion or girls because those topics could escalate into major disagreements (they can’t communicate anyway because of the language barrier).

But farting? That’s practically a sport. Ok, it’s not soccer, but a good contest could open the door for cross-cultural exchanges, jokes and other gallows humor….

Bukhari Vol 1 Bk 11 Nbr 582

Mohammed said, “When the Adhan is pronounced Satan takes to his heels and passes wind with noise during his flight in order not to hear the Adhan.


77% of Democrats (and Ron Paul) Voted Against Rules Of Engagement That Protect Our Troops

This is a hard one to stomach:  (American Thinker/Andrew Bostom)

Florida Republican Congressman John Mica offered the following morally clear Amendment (5/25/2011-H.AMDT.318 (A018) Amends H.R.1540):

Amendment requires that the rules of engagement [ROE] allow any military service personnel assigned to duty in a designated hostile fire area to have rules of engagement that fully protect their right to proactively defend themselves from hostile actions.

The results? (tallied here):

143 out of 185 Democrats present — 77% — voted against this amendment; 217 out of 235 Republicans present — 92% — voted for it.

As for the two Republicans in Congress running who are Presidential candidates, Michele Bachmann voted for the amendment; Ron Paul against it.

  1. I was hoping the fart mandate was a joke-
    Afghans are offensive to US- they throw acid in little girl’s faces and fuck dancing boys, they have the nerve to ask no farting zones??

    but the vote on Mica’s bill ? that is DEADLY serious and truly offensive that our reps would deny our soldiers the right to defend themsleves under hostile conditions.

    in fact in most armed forces this would be grounds for mass mutiny- maybe our reps would be happy to see our guys just stand up and volunteer to get shot!! Their goal seems to be make the enemy happy.

  2. stop being so damn anal about these things. if you are in their country, you follow their rules. it’s really quite simple. if you don’t like it, then get the fuck out. and yes, you MUST respect the athan (adhan) when it is pronounced and remain in silence while it is going on. Show some respect. in america no one shows respect. i’m happy to hear that afghans make sure rules are respected! woohoo! i love my Afghans <3

    1. You are in America, you follow American rules.

      If you don’t like it, then get the fuck out. follow your own rules and show some respect!

      Nobody in America needs to respect your cult, your behavior or put up with the noise from your mosque.

  3. farting is an important bodily function which relieves tension in the stomach– in this day and age we are suffering tremendously from tensions in the stomach… interesting is your comment about gassing the idiots…which brings me to anders behring brevik… it seems he understood that it is our own people who are handing us over to islamic power… without the support of pro islamic westerners they would not be able to do anything; it is our own people betraying us; we need to turn full attention on them. when muslims commit terror for their cause they get huge support and encouragement from their own, when one of our own commits terror in the name of our cause all of us are horrified and denounce him…

  4. And when in our country Janan you follow OUR rules. Got it!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Agree with you Whatdemocrary!!

  7. jahan, jihad, johan or whatever it is , i guess while your in “OUR” country you love the fact that liberals expect you to “NOT” obey anything…must be a drag after holding in that “stomach bubble” all these years ..if you love your afgans so much , join em and quickly …if i had it my way …a wall would go up immediately following your departure, to insure you “OBEY” my rules posted …….”KEEP OUT ” !!!!!!!

  8. Of all the insane things I’ve yet to hear – this one takes the cake. UNBELIEVABLE. What have we become that we would bend over backwards to oblige such a request as this. We are to make all the changes while they come to our country, spit in our faces, and don’t honor any of our rules. They will have their day for now, but that day will soon be up and they may even recognize the folly of their ways. Again, they may not. They don’t seem to see with inter vision, any too clearly. Go Marines. You rock and I applaud you. Thanks for fighting for my freedom. God be with you.
