A US Soldier was found responsible for an insane act of… Americanism?

A video has emerged (we’ve included it below) of an American military member in Afghanistan. The still screen of the video shows a man, dressed in a tee shirt, shorts, and a red, white and blue head scarf, holding a red electric guitar.

Quite a different scene than the traditional image of a soldier dressed in his military clothing and holding his weapon of choice!

The video reveals that the man is standing on a rooftop in an unnamed location in Afghanistan. His guitar is buzzing loudly — people all around the rooftop would be able to hear the song that is being strummed on the instrument.

To everyone’s surprise, the soldier is playing the United States National Anthem!

To make the video even more patriotic, the camera eventually pans to an American flag being flown proudly in the background.

The person who posted the video stated that, “In a truly exceptional show of American patriotism, the soldier, decided to act out against the religion that has disrespected that world so much during the recent days [sic].”

And, what is more, the soldier played the anthem during a Muslim prayer time.

That's how I feel about it right now.

And Americans wonder why people belonging to other cultures and nationalities have a somewhat generalised and negative perception of them being arrogant and obnoxious...

This was an immature thing to do, in my opinion.

That's tacky and disrespectful imo. I'm sure the majority who adhere to those daily prayer times aren't crazed fundamentalists.

If you'll notice, not a Single Muslim was beheaded in that video.

I loved it!

Thanks for posting.

Only thing I think might have been better is if he would have played the French anthem, or maybe both.

Meh, who gives a # what it's supposed to be.

Blasting any national anthem at any given time while over there is immature in my opinion. I don't care if the details are satirical, it's just an immature thing to do in general.

What about all the Muslims indiscriminately killed in our decade of long range drone attacks? Or do all those dead women and children not matter because you never had to look at their dead white eyes?

This is called a double standard. The killing needs to stop, on ALL sides.

There are two evils in Afghanistan
The fundamental evil of Islam and then there is the fundamental attitude that the US is right and the rest of the world is wrong
Those sorts of acts cause retribution

Patriotic? he is in an invading force in another peoples country, its not patriotic, its arrogance.
