And the planned destruction of the greatest fighting force ever known to man continues by this America-hating lawless regime...

Yup, You got it. The dumbass with the fuzzy face is the first one done for when the mask is needed. And he’ll have fun in the gas tent. For my own part if the gas don’t get fuzz-boy I probly will because you have to know you can’t count on a person who is wrapped up in his own personal style/fad/ habit / etc. instead of the mission at hand. Clean it up. Button it down. Get your head on a swivel. And don’t stink with your own personal brand of fleur-de-stinkum so’s the neighbors don’t smell us coming. I hope there’s still a couple people left in the Pentagon who understand the reasons for sanitation, etc.

My guess is the blow back from queering up the services and little Barry Soetoro’s wrecking of the current troops morale, not to mention the fact that the nation’s morale in the tank, which has the Recruiting Command up against the wall. They aren’t making their quotas. Plus, the enemies that are behind the Pentagon’s gate; muslims, pc police, fags, demonrats, femi-nazis. etc., are steering the military straight into the ground.

Good question, but do I care if those self-centered egocentric dolts die because they insist upon their muslime beard. . .naw. . .don’t care.

Ferocious fighters for sure, and an exception for them as they fight hard for us. . .muslimes? Not so much. For them it is all about changing us to accommodate them. Supposedly in the koran there is no requirement to wear a beard so any muslime doing so is only doing it to “prove” his pious nature and force us to accommodate him.

Yup. . let him go out at night, alone, and when he comes back in the morning, “don’t ask don’t tell” takes on a whole new meaning.

Actually, it probably doesn’t: gas masks are now part of full-body CBW suits, since a gas mask alone is useless against most modern chemical agents.

Actually, Sikh men are not to cut their beards, nor are Orthodox Christian priests or deacons (which covers some folks in the Chaplains Corps) if they follow the tradition strictly.

So if guys can wear beards, turbans and yamulkas, are we going to have troops wearing big crosses dangling from their necks as well?

If not, why not?

The whole idea of such displays is ridiculous. But if it’s going to be allowed for one group, it’s obviously got to be allowed for all groups.

It’s very difficult to properly seal a gas mask while adorned with a bushy beard.

That’s the reason given as to why we had to shave when I was in the Army (43 years ago).

I am unaware of any advances in mask technology that eliminates this problem.
