    But seriously, I suppose there is a difference between being in a host country or even an occupied country, and having this invasive species worming its way into our culture and demanding accommodation.

    Are our leaders blind and without access to the internet? Do they not know or simply not care what harm the muzzie presence in Europe and Great Britain is doing or pursuing?
    Wow, Nova ...

    Must be the spirit of the season! :D I find myself in complete agreement with you.

    The difference you referred to above, must be because we as Americans do comply with host country rules ... and THEY on the other hand ... are determined to "transform" (sound familiar?) our country to fit their way of life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    No matter how long it takes. And yes, I am indeed an acolyte of Robert Spencer. :)

    No, our current leadership believes fully in the multi-culti bullshit, despite the fact that even the slow-witted, leftward-slanting Euros have figured out it is incredibly poisonous.

    I have a feeling Nova knows about all the PCMC BS "his" prez. believes in ... but is not 100% OK within himself to accept thinking about it ... being the lib that he is.

    Who knows? Perhaps there is just the tiniest bit of hope for him yet, on this subject at least. :p

    I believe the same applies in Kuwait.

    And in Afghanistan the female engagement teams are wearing headscarves when they interact with the local women.

    So we've already been having to require women serving to do it in host nations...there just hasn't been that big a fuss made except in some rare occasions.
    That's because our military cannot break the laws of other countries. It's not done as a courtesy, or make the host nation feel like we want to be included. It is the law and a death penalty offense.

    Indeed, by golly ... we must not offend their beloved prophet (PBUH) and the "P" in my words does not quite stand for "Peace" can you believe?

    They don't care. Political correctness and the fear of drawing the ire of Ibrahim Hooper and the rest of the C.A.I.R. mafia trumps all.

    Of course the old Emir passed away in late 05 or early 06, and the relative who replaced him was on his last legs, so it's possible they've changed the laws since then.

    As I said the JROTC ruling is the camels nose under the tent flap...regular army is next with this case being cited as precedent.

    And from there it's not much of a step to force the military to accept full face coverings for Muslim women.
    Agreed. Ironically, there are a number of Muslim women serving in the US military, and they are extremely western in their outlook and conduct (one of the ones that I knew even dated Jewish guys). They'd be the first ones to oppose wearing a headscarf. They oppose the imposition of Sharia and want nothing to do with the kind of Muslims that we're at war with.

    Unless, of course, we've conquered that country, in which case the law is what we say it is until their civil authorities have been restored. And, if we're there to protect them, then they really shouldn't be too critical of how we do it. The Saudis were perfectly happen to let us protect them from Saddam in 1992, as long as we didn't confront them with our culture. Americans were barred from bringing bibles, crosses and other religious objects into the country because the Saudis would be offended by the the worship of anything but Allah, as defined by the Wahhabi cleric, but I suspect that they'd have been more offended by being rolled over by Saddam Hussein's army. I'd say that the standard should be that any country that wants us to assist them in their defense should be willing to deal with the culture that we bring with us. If they don't want the culture that makes us effective, then they don't want the effects of it.

    The PM recently stepped down under pressure from the Islamist opposition. I have a bad feeling about that.
