U.S. Troops Face Eating, Drinking Restrictions During Ramadan

WeeklyStandard: A top commander in southwest Asia reminded U.S military personnel stationed in Muslim countries in the Middle East of the restrictions placed on them during Ramadan. According to a report by the U.S. Air Forces Central Command Public Affairs, Brig. Gen. John Quintas, 380th Air Expeditionary Wing commander in Southwest Asia, said that the U.S. is “committed to the concepts of tolerance, freedom and diversity.” But he added that soldiers should “become more informed and appreciative of the traditions and history of the people in this region of the world… [R]emember we are guests here and that the host nation is our shoulder-to-shoulder, brothers and sisters in arms, risking their lives for our common cause to defeat terrorism.”

During the 30-day religious celebration of Ramadan, even non-Muslims are expected to obey local laws regarding eating, drinking, and using tobacco in public. Violators can be fined up to $685 or receive two months in jail. A spokesperson for United States Central Command [CENTCOM] said that “we are not aware of any specific instances of anyone being arrested” for such violations.  MORE

  1. As usual… White first worlders must constantly conform to the backwards traditions of every turd world shithole on the planet. Just like when any turd world shitbag immigrates to the US, we’re supposed to assimilate to their stupid ass ways rather than them assimilating to us. Fuck this shit.

  2. But sex with sheep and goats and camels is OK, as well as with little boys. To Hell with this, we need to get the Hell out of their now and let the barbarians fight it out amongst themselves. Either that or carpet bomb the whole damned place and start over after we’ve killed them all, wishful thinking.

  3. HORSEPISS!!

    The PC’ers do not seem to understand that there is a powerful and rising negative sentiment among the citizens who built this country.

    Might anyone be able imagine reading this crap in the 40’s and 50’s?

  4. AYFKM??
    Fire the person(s) who came up with this shit!

    And while you’re at it, discharge any US soldier who complies with muzzie dietary restrictions.

    Trust me on this.

  5. I was in Bahrain during Ramadan in 1998. The localKFC had mid-day lunch specials specifically for non-Muslims. What changed?

  6. This is why we need to bomb and get the fuck out. Obviously, the muslims there are incapable of learning. Why bother with them?

  7. Fer cryin’ out loud Betsy. This is where it really gets weird and the ground swallows up the debil in disguise.

  8. I’ll comply as soon as they (the followers of the religion of peace) are forced to have a meal of Easter ham to celebrate my religious traditions.

  9. They’re trying to say, “When in Rome”. Really?
    “When in Dearbornistan” isn’t much different, is it.

  10. “Brothers in Arms”? Is that why ISIS has 2800 Humvees? Thousands of U.S. Weapons tanks MRAPs shoulder fired MANPADs? Yea right . NOT!!!!!!!!
