As I’ve always said, it’s totally inaccurate to describe Islam’s war against the West as a “clash of civilizations.” That would assume that the Islamic world is actually a civilization. And here’s yet another piece of evidence that it most certainly is not. A loyal reader who is a proud U.S. soldier currently serving in Iraq sent this memo he received from authorities, on Friday, warning American soldiers of an impending, um, “celebration” at Joint Base Balad (JBB):
Hey, Everyone Knows Civilized People Celebrate w/ Gunfire Aimed @ US Soldiers
I believe you mentioned something similar around new years in Detroit. Apparently, it doesn’t have to be a special holiday. The following is from a military email.
WHO: JBB ALL
WHAT: Possibility that errant small-arms rounds [DS: To our friends in Dearbornistan, that means "stray bullets"] may impact JBB this evening as a result of celebratory fire from outside the base. Result of Iraq playing Australia in the Asian Cup.
WHEN: Today, 22 Jan anytime after 16:25L. If Iraq wins, fire most likely to occur between 1730L and 1900L.
WHERE: Joint Base Balad
WHY: Awareness of possible errant small-arms rounds
Religion of peace…..
Yup, “Religion of Peace” . . . and pieces.
Sooo glad we sacrificed American boys’ lives to take Iraq from despot Saddam Hussein to give it to these equally classy acts. Mission accomplished, indeed. These people don’t need American-style democracy. They need an authoritarian dictator to keep the peace.
In case you were wondering, Iraq lost to Australia in overtime, so some American soldiers in Iraq, thankfully, didn’t have to die because these barbarians won a soccer match.
Hey, don’t say I didn’t warn you about soccer. And Islam.
