No this type of holier than thou, messiah complex buffoonery is this type of American.

Which is a shame because I love Americans in general.


I got an idea...
You have your opinion, I'll stick with mine.


I have.



Most



You've talked to most the people in Afghanistan?


Somehow I doubt that.

Is this video (and the alleged context) even real? Just asking.

If it is... then this is the most idiotic behaviour I've seen in a loooong time.

Do this as a German soldier and you're out. Guaranteed.


it's from 2012 during a flag raising

heaven helps us

this is old news, you guys, need a reason to be offended or something?


It is old news indeed. And what I said remains valid, even for two years ago. To my knowledge the prayer times don't vary that wildly. And I would be surprised if the local commander agreed to blasting this music during a known prayer time.

I think your question hits the nail on the head though


I wonder if it was posted on the forum two years ago?

Where were the "Native People" you refer to in the OP's video?

All I see is a dude with a guitar in a desert scenario playing the national anthem. But it's cool! Emotional correctness is a trendy?


There isnt, I am going on what the OP stated, yes stupid of me.

Its not about emotional correctness, its about people in a country caught between to armys with guns and then being subjected to propaganda from both sides.

Preachy yanks in a war zone.
Emotional correctness as opposed to emotional arrogance.

That's the conundrum though! It is the Taliban that is burning down the poppy fields! It is the US troops that our protecting them!


That hasn't been the case for a couple of years now. The Tali's are actively selling Opium to finance their operations now.

Then why does the article make it such a point of emphasis that it was during the prayer time?

Again it is not written as a hit piece on the solider, it is the exact opposite.

I never once had a Muslim tell me to convert or die, in fact I bought a cigarillo from one earlier today, we BSed about the weather and the rocket launch, I told him "see ya later Haj." and he said "take it easy."



Sounds like a racist remark to me. Do you know that he actually went to Hajj, or maybe he was even practicing Taqqiya on you? In English though, it's called lying.

So gullible.

Your the one asking why this was drug up, I am just telling you it was to try and give cheers to this guy doing this.
It was not drug up to be offended by or to be a hit piece, it was drug up for the exact opposite.
If you have an issue of why it was brought up, ask the OP.

To make it more sensational maybe? I mean I know the media would never do anything like that, especially a "journalist" fresh out of college. And God knows you can trust YouTube to be 100% factual right?

Probably only the taliban types were offended. Do you know that radio's and televisions are against the law there in the hardest hit taliban controlled areas? People would have a radio and hide it well, and listen to it quietly at night when they think no one will hear.

And even with that there was such fear, because you never know who might turn you in for having a radio. Many died or were beaten and/or their homes destroyed just for that one simple crime, that of having a radio.

So no.. probably a shock, but no offense. I am sure it made some smile.

I've seen your apologist drivel. Nowhere did I say that I have talked to MOST Afhgans or Iraqis or Sauds or Kuwaitis, etc, etc, etc.

I know that most are people just like everyone else. But they live in fear at all times from the religious police, their mullahs and imams, etc, etc.

I don't think you know what you are talking about, unless you are one of those who keep instilling fear into normal good-natured muslims who just want to left alone to live life and not further some cults agenda.

Fine have the opinion, but don't act like this is what this thread is, when you can clearly read that it isn't.

Maybe he was lying but he is very old and claims to have done it. He just says to call him Haj so I do. I didn't realize it was racist though. I thought it was a religious thing.

Don't blame the soldier. Blame the government that put him there.

I'll agree with you on the sensationalism part.

They just really go out of their way to make a point about it.

Lol I'm not an apologist for nothing especially the Taliban...
I'm a just a sometimes humble and all faithful Muslim...


I have however seen you're idiocy in confusing the name Haj with the Hajj pilgrimage...

Or your less than stellar efforts to explain the true meaning of Taqiya...


You stick with ReligionOfPeace.com...

I'll continue to smile at your efforts to sow discord.

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.



Oh it never ends does it. The madness I mean. Maybe you would prefer he open up with auto fire?
