With tensions at an all time high in Afghanistan following the Koran burnings, the urination video, and the killing of 16 civilians, attention is now falling on a long line of "Infidel" apparel and gear. Exhausted from how they feel they're being perceived, troops have taken to wearing patches and carrying items that label themselves infidels, and offer translation in local dialect. In the Muslim world an infidel means literally "one without faith" who rejects the central teachings of Islam. Military.com tracked down Clayton Montgomery at Mil-Spec Monkey, a large online seller of infidel gear, who says his most popular item by far is the "Pork Eating Crusader Patch." The patch includes an image of a knight in a Crusade's tunic, eating what appears to be a large ham hock, and lest there be any confusion a translation in Arabic. They haven't gone unnoticed. The website Muslim Awakening, posts a picture of what appears to be a German soldier with the patch adhered to his combat uniform. Other items are more subtle. There is the Infidel Zippo advertised as: "This one is small enough to hold some personal meaning and not be in-your-face to everyone you meet.

Nice of them to make sure its written in muzzy so everyone can read what it says. LOL
It’s just a matter of time before the Tolerance crowd riots over this and demands that it not be tolerated.
lol, yes!...Kick ass and chew bubble-gum.
And, the Cross of St. George, less we forget.
...anything other than brutal and total war on an enemy is wasted lives and money.
If the Americans are not allowed to wage war, then get them the hell out...
...and especially Afghanistan...it is clear to the "most casual observer" by now that there is no way to "win the hearts and minds" of the Afghanistan people...they hate us (except for a few of the women who see their lives going down the drain with the taliban in charge)....
I love it!!!
I like it.
It’s not just for breakfast anymore.
Is it kosher to piss on a burning koran to save the Earth by reducing CO2 emissions?
If the goal/strategy isn’t to kill islamists in Afghanistan, what is it?
Oh, I have GOT to get me one of these.
Sew it on my shooting range bags.
I want one too.
Strategy? In A-stan? Are you serious?
There is no strategy in A-stan. The only “strategy” is to close the last base queitly, and avoid the alarming replay of “sack the embassy” with choppers landing on the roof, taking off the last soldiers and spooks.
Gotta see this...
(( ping ))
Our combat boys won't be allowed to offend the sensibilities of any Muslim enemy even minutes before he's riddled with bullet holes and bites the sand.
