Skip to comments.Marines ban farting to avoid offending Muslims

There are so many weird aspects of this story. Don't these Marines have mothers, or someone in their lives who told them as children that audible passing of gas was offensive? And the high command has to tell them to cut it out because it offends Afghans, as if such a reaction were different from that of any normal person? And unfortunately, the friendly-fire jihad attacks by Afghans that regularly punctuate the working relationship between U.S. and Afghan troops are not going to be ended by this small gesture in "trust building." "For Marines in Afghanistan: be careful where you fart," by Gina Cavallaro in Military Times, August 23 (thanks to David):
F@rt proudly, Lads!
F@rt proudly, Lads!
Get our people the hell out of there.
They must have declared a Fatwa on me by now. (or is that Fartwa?)
This from people who hose their a$$ off in the bathroom...
You ever tried NOT to fart after an MRE?
Just heard this on the radio referring to it as the “Don’t ask, don’t smell” policy.
Get our people the hell out of there.
Or at least get them better quality food
Gentlemen, it’s not our Marines’ fault that you guys can’t make those sounds anymore because of all the sodomy.
These are the people who think it is ok to screw a goat but not to eat it immediately afterward. But it is ok for them to sell that goat to a neighbor to eat.
Ode Tae a Fart...
Lets hope when their lopping off heads, the victim don’t offend them by farting.
They've already declared a Jihad on this guy.
All right, FR comedians, let her rrripp!!
My favorite beans in a can except with Jalapenos!!!
Rule #1, our men put their rears on the line for your sorry country, they can pass gas anyway they like. Don’t like it? Tough.
Somebody, somewhere in the deepest reaches of the Pentagon, strained mightily at the multitude of challenges facing a military in the field and came up with THIS?
I don’t know if I should laugh or try manfully not to weep bitter tears.
Normal, healthy, active Marines now have to refrain from farting. No doubt we’ll next get orders to cease cursing, or maybe even flap our arms and try to flutter around the damn room on signal.
(Spit on the ground and walk away)
You mean "Tough sh@tski!"
How about “Silent but Deadly”?
That’s not the Marines I know. They should tell the Afghans that they are risking their live, so cut them some slack on cuttin’ some wind. Whomever thought this up should be demoted.
Beano to the troops.
Isn't that what the peanut butter is for? Kinda like "butt putty", but works from the inside out...
I’d say that this calls for some 5-alarm, radioactive chili for a response.
Again, it’s an insult to me to have to breathe the same air as Mozlems, when are they going to make them stop breathing?
Didn’t the Surgeon General say that trying to hold a MRE fart was dangerous to your health?
I guess this rules out lighting them on fire....
We are offending a group of “people” who wipe their asses with their hands and are said to have “carnal knowledge” of farm animals? The alternate universe is already here!
It would make the front page and so would the indoctrination and conditioning of our troops which is going on right now—that conditioning into ignoring the sodomy and pederasty and homosexuality in Afghanistan and look the other way. But since we are trying to teach “homosexuality” is “good”, it doesn’t fit the MSM’s allowed “group think” of Marx where we no longer have ‘right and wrong” based on God’s laws (in Founding Documents even) and ‘switching” to the standards of pagans/and occultists and atheists.
Don’t rock the boat—I guess it is part of the indoctrination into the homosexualization of our military into the pagan, occultist worldview—to destroy George Washington’s military—the Christian paradigm and morality that he shaped our military with, as he kicked out and severely punished all people who practiced homosexuality in the military.
Oh, yes....we are adopting the morality of the homosexual Brownshirts (Pink Swastika—free online) and the pagan Russians so that OUR military will be able to be used to destroy and kill their own citizens—which a Christian military and men (like Patton) would never do-—men who had a Christian value system, where homosexual acts would literally make them puke and did—which it should—it demeans the human body in such a filthy, nihilistic way.
I hear they’re also banning it in elevators.
Sorry, Leathernecks, go easy on the beans and onions.
If, however, you wish to bugger a pre-teen Afghan boy, then please feel free.
After all, we can’t offend the Afghans.
I would proudly fart in their general direction.
What is offensive to the Afghanis is that this is the traditional Mohammedan man/boy love call, and they don’t want infidels doing it.
Plus the reason is not to offend the muslims.
We as a country have bent over backward and forward for the benefit of muslims even prior to 9/11. Then we get hit and still the US leadership is trying to appease these feral humans.
When our country is back in American hands, I hope that the leadership tells the muslim world to go pound sand.
BLOODY BRILLIANT!!! APPLAUSE!!! You did Burns proud!
We could learn from the Romans—the USMC motto on passing gas over there should be,”smell it and like it you heathen savage.”
Never fart in the presence of a muslim, especially while he’s making love to his goat.
That is beyond hilarious.
Then the Marines should also ban showers and deodorant so they can blend in with the muzzies.
Our troops will just have to resort to the “silent but violent” approach to flatulence, and impose the “whoever smelt it dealt it” blame game to their Afghan co-horts.
I would really hate to offend such fine decent folk. /s
What would the charge be for violating this horsesh*t directive?
Inappropriate expulsion of noxious gases in the presence of Muslims?
Disrespectful farting in a host country?
That’s damn un-American!
I’d make up for it by peeing in the hummus.
