TextIn the military's quest to win hearts and minds in Afghanistan, marines are now to refrain from audibly breaking wind, lest they offend the Afghans they are seeking to win over.


a new order??

when I was in,, we didn't fart because it would give away our position.. (Who wants to die?)
(also i was so scared, at times, MY backside was sucked-up so far,, i had to wipe my belly-button,,after,,youknow..)


next we need Gaseous emission-proof Boxers!!

so we don't offend our attackers as well..

man... THIS world IS changing..

Here's another link to go with your storyreply to post by darrman
 



U.S. Marines in Afghanistan have faced difficulties from harsh climate to the threat of al-Qaida attacks. Now Military Times reports that another provision has been added to their duty sheet. Audible farting by U.S. Marines has been banned because it offends some members of the Afghan National Army and Afghan civilians.


See I told you not to eat all those MRE's

Use of chemical weapons has been outlawed by Geneva for a while, hasn't it?

In all seriousness? Really? Can't let our industrial killing machine be impolite.

No farting?

This is outrageous.

I will never, ever join the military - knowing that after all my sacrifices I am still not even allowed the pleasure of a good old American fart.

Hell...just another reason I am glad I'm out. Sometimes you have to relieve the pressure...it's only natural. Otherwise you'll be crapping your pants later.

Political correctness running amok!

I give it twenty years...tops. And we will once again have a hollow military, unless they enact the new retirement. Then I give it five.
