If I Was Still In? They Could Kiss My Lily White

Don’t forget your hijab, soldier! American servicewomen encouraged to wear headscarves in Afghanistan

In an effort to get closer to the local population, American female soldiers stationed in Afghanistan are being encouraged to wear a Muslim headscarf when interacting with civilians. But some question whether the practice constitutes cultural sensitivity or a form of appeasement that is degrading to U.S. soldiers.

Major Kyndra Rotunda, executive director of the Military Law and Policy Institute and AMVETS Legal Clinic, told The Daily Caller that while the women are not being ordered to wear the head scarf, encouragement is tantamount to a demand.

“They say they are encouraging women to wear the headscarf when they are out and about and on patrol. But the problem is — and I think anyone who has been in the military understands that being encouraged to do something is about the same thing as being ordered — it really puts them in an uncomfortable position when their commander says, ‘We really want you to do this, technically you don’t have to, but we really want you to do this,’” she said.

Oh, hajib’s are much preferred to helmets in any warzone.

File THAT one under “Up Yours”.

Where’s Skyler? I want to hear what he thinks, since he’s there. It may be that it’s more of an effort trying to get information out of the local women rather than kissing the goatfuckherders’ misogynist asses.

But that’s the ONLY reason I would debase myself with the vile symbol of everything that’s wrong with Islam ~ if I could save ONE American life. Otherwise, I’d be happy to dance like Beyonce in the streets of Kabul just to watch their greasy bearded brains explode.

    That has to be the Army, sorry Jeff. These people are nuts, there we go kowtowing to these goons again. When’s burn a Koran Day again?

    I’m in Camp Leatherneck, just a little north of Lashka Gar, or however it’s spelled today.

    I’ve not heard such an encouragement, but it’s not really new. They were telling women that back in the Gulf War.

    There are a lot of FET’s around here. I think they’re chosen to be photogenic or something, they tend to be good smilers and attractive. Or maybe I’ve been isolated from women since October.

    Anyway, I was distracted for a moment there. There are many female engagement teams on the base here and none that I’ve seen wear hijabs or have them handy. I suspect they would tell anyone “encouraging them” to wear one to fly a kite, but I don’t know that.

    Forget burn a Koran Day. I think we need a Big Megaton Day.

    If THS is going to dance around like Beyonce, we want pictures.

    Skyler is right, this not new but I think it has become a focal point in this administration. I could be wrong(I hope y’all were sitting down when you read that) but I’m pretty sure I’ve seen Hillary with her hair covered in some of her forays into Muslim countries.
    Remember during the ewul Bu$hitler Administration Kerry and Durbin were calling American forces “terrorists” for the way they were conducting late night raids into the homes and showing a lack of cultural sensitivity.
    The military isn’t viewed as a fighting force under these people as much as a meals on wheels encounter group. Skyler is only there because Obama can’t find a way to retreat out of that sewer without hurting his 2012 election prospects.

    Yeah, I’d stick to kevlar, myself.

  5. JeffS says:

    No need to apologize, Major Dad. This is the same Army that kept that psychotic terrorist (but I repeat myself) Nidal Hasan in uniform in spite of the obvious indicators.

    I’ve seen this sort ass kising trend in other elements of the Army, in Afghanistan, as well as other places. It’s quite disheartening.

    Frankly, if I were in command, I’d refuse to pass the request along to my female troops.

    Yanno, I think I’d encourage something more like in kevlar or something else more modern.

    hmmm the ‘this’ in like this disappeared. But.

    Headcovering isn’t ALWAYS a bad idea.
