No fair play saneone that would show us who the psychopaths and sociopaths are...


But I do like to be kept ahead of the times when it comes to seeing who are the troglodytes just as much.


For different reasons of course.


Edit: You get a star anyways because you were honest and forthright & I sense it comes from a good place.

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.


Did mummy and daddy not pay him enough attention or something ?

Oh and wtf did afghan ever do to us?
What is he defending us from by fighting a war in place that has nothing to do with what happened on 911?


Ask the government that he depends on for a paycheck to support him and his family! Or would you rather treat the symptom?

I don't care what he wears...he's in a foreign country and still has the right to be Free, while he protects your %$#. He wouldn't be there in the first place if we didn't need a military to defend us. Who knows he might have killed a terrorist who would have killed your family. It's time to wake up,people.

Who is he defending in the desert?
Who is he protecting?
Man, Americans and their attitude that they are protecting everybody and everything brought us all the terrorists we have now.
Thousands of children born into hatred against the people that occupy their country.

seeing that before the U.S. and the coalition forces went into afghanistan and removed the taliban from power and made them just another terrorist group, and stopped the war on women that they were waging. you know, the beating them with sticks or killing them for leaving the house without a male escort from their family, or cutting of their fingers for wearing nail polish, or killing little girls that wanted to go to school, beating men for letting their female family do these things, or not wearing a bread, no tv, radio, internet, and a whole host of other things that they said violated sharia law. while they profited from the sale of opium poppy sales being the big hypocrites that they are.
just check out the talibans human violations that were filed before the U.S. and the coalition forces went into Afghanistan.

knowing all that, i think that they could bear just a couple minutes to honor one of the countries that help put a stop to all that, without being offend. it they can't pull all the troops that are going to be left as support for the Afghan government, military and police force and watch how fast the taliban or isis come back or move in and take over. just like Iraq

If the troops want respect than they need to give it, this is not giving respect.
This is being an asshat to be an asshat.

How long ago did we do all those things but yet we just ended this war?
Pretty sure when you spend years killing the people you liberated, you wear out your welcome.

I love freedom of expression though...

It shows us who the true cretins & reprobates are on Earth!


That would be the fundamentalist Muslims...right? He was just entertaining the locals who are sick of hearing crap and being forced to pray to some dumb $#@^&%#G Moon god over the fear of death.

Go there...talk to them...I have. Most could give a rats ass about Allah. They are just stuck between a rock and a hard place.

well, that was pointless.

It doesn`t matter why he is in THEIR country but while he is there he is a "guest" and he should show some respect.Just because you can be disrespectful doesn`t mean you should.There`s nothing admirable or honorable about being disrespectful.
I wouldn`t want him as a guest in my house.

Im all about patriotism, im all about freedom of expression, im all about our military and men and women in arms....

Im all about this great country and the great things we can do when we choose to do so......

But im also about respect, kindness, and integrity....

I wasnt impressed by this display

Ive been over there, and there are horrible things that happen and you get angry....but its more important to maintain WHO you are, and keep your sense of morality, humanity , and whats right and wrong alive.....

This wasnt patriotic, this was obnoxious and disrespectful, and if I was his CO I would have his ass

Just curious...how do we know it was during prayer time? You can see the flag being raised in the background, which means it's morning colors, which is usually at 8 a.m. In the naval services, and usually around 630 in the army, but can vary a bit depending on the base commander.

Quick search of current prayer times across Afghanistan puts the first prayer around 5:45 and the second prayer anywhere from 7:00 to 7:30.

Colors is nearly always accompanied by the star spangled banner. The base commander would've been aware of local prayer times, which don't really match up with colors times.

Sounds to me like somebody embellished the story to give it some extra oomph or something.

Then again the beard means he's likely special operations so who knows


Still an awesome video

Don't you people know that it's bad taste to be a proud American anywhere these days hell you can't even show your pride in schools in America without some group saying its racist or wrong.






Its very poor taste when a soldier from an invading force is in a foreign country playing his own national anthem during the native peoples prayer time.

Why cant you see that, what makes it difficult to understand respect rather than antagonising others.

Please be proud of your country (though I dont know why you would be if all I read on ats is true)
You know its not unpatriotic to say we have lost our direction, we need to find our way again?
Be proud of your service men, just dont go upsetting people because you have more guns and want to be arrogant.

Its very bad taste to force your beliefs on others, that is what he is over there trying to stop.

The West dragged China kicking and screaming into the 20th Century. They evolved and survived. I think it's time to do the same to Islam...or....give them a ultimatum like they do us non-believers.

Pay Jizya and submit. Or convert to anything else but Islam (Hey! They at least have a choice there don't they) ot just plain flat out die. That's the choices they give us. Turnabout is fair play after all.
