Well, maybe we should just send the military home because if we actually need them, somebody might get hurt.

Ok, I have to call bullsh*t on this. Trijicon or no trijicon, the muzzies will still take your head.

They will be superseded by a new model, the F-U-ALL. This new model will have interchangeable reticles, including cross hairs, a 6-pointed star and a crescent.

Trijicon probably was also threatened by Obama and Emmanual.

I note that Trijicon makes references to removing these references only on products made for the military. That would include the TA31 and a few others; I'm hoping that the rest of the line will remain unaltered, if for no other reason simply to piss off the left.

Should the Biblical reference prohibit the enemy from taking the weapon and sight according to Muslim doctrine?

And what if there were little engravings of pigs on the sight?, or even the letters “P”, “I”, “G”, scattered around (i.e., ‘encoded’) in the various text on the labels on all government equipment?

Or be safe and shorten the alphabet down to 23 by banning those letters.

Let’s get correct, people!!

I wonder how long it will be before Muzzies complain about Tim Tebow wearing Bible verses under his eyes? I doubt Muzzies go to football games, but all it will take is some Leftist traitor tipping them off about Tebow’s “atrocity” before they get “disturbed” and go into one of their rages, burning cars, sawing of heads with dull knives, burning Christian churches, etc.

General Petraeus is slowly morphing into General Casey.

Not good at all for those who serve with common sense in today's Army.

Agreed.

These democrats and other idiots forget that the muzz are going to try to murder Americans no matter what simply because we aren't muslims.

The koran commands them to do this.

"Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them" is the first of many references from the Koran that instantly comes to mind.

Well, without admitting any connection to the Bible, who is to say Tricon couldn’t come out with a new model, the Tricon JN8:12?
Just a coincidence...officially.

I want Weinstein to next start up a campaign on Israel bout their Biblical named weapons systems.

The enemy already feels this is a holy war.

Doesn’t the US military have Biblical named weapons systems.

Nothing personal against my Federals bethren here but I have always been highly offended by the notion of Sherman tanks.

and while we are at it.....Harpoon missles are offensive to whale lovers

Get serious, General. There are more important things to be concerned about. Political Correctness is disturbing.

Cowboy up, General.

Meaning no disrespect, but if this war has proven anything it's that any U.S. soldier taken by Taliban or al Qaida has more important things to worry about then some Bible verse on his sight.

I’m hoping Trijicon is sitting on a warehouse full of verse marked scopes and will flood the civvie market with them. I’ve wanted a trijicon for years, but they’re a little pricey.

It wasn’t some idiot muzzie who kicked up this fuss, it was MICHAEL WEINSTEIN, from the very dishonestly named, “Military Religious Freedom Foundation”. http://wwww.mrff.org

Many parts of his dihonest page feature aged Constitution scrolls, or make you half imagine that Ben Franklin will stroll out with buckle shoes, powdered wig, and half-moon glasses, but I asssssuuuure you he is all about stamping on the bibles of US military people:

He was a USAF J.A.G. puke who worked —of all people— for Ronald Reagan, then made some bucks in the private sector suing folks for Ross Perot. Then he retired at from 2006 and has for the past 4 years been waging Secular Jihad against men who treacherously fight muslim folks who throw acid on girls and say Jews are monkeys (don’t ask me).

Sounds crazy huh? He’s overweight, ugly, angry, and other bad stuff —things you can see from the news broadcast clips he has at his website:

http://www.militaryreligiousfreedom.org/weinstein2.html

Yes, while we are out trying to head off Armageddon or widespread terror, this guy chooses to focus on stuff that’s written on rifles —amazing, isn’t it?

I do not understand what drives this incredibly deluded, zeppelin-like REMF’ing insect.

They are but well worth it if you can afford one. I'm saving up for one. I hope they stand up to this Bulls#it at some point.

Too bad that General Petraeus backed down.
Sterile gunsights won't help U.S. servicemen & servicewomen in the event of capture.
