US Commander Uses Ramadan As Excuse For Afghan Murders Of Our Troops
I can still barely believe this one, even after hearing it with my own ears.
The U.S. commander in Afghanistan, General John Allen was queried about the huge increase in U.S. troops being murdered by their supposed Afghan 'allies.'
He actually blamed the spike in the murders of U.S. troops on the stress of fasting and in his words, sacrifice associated with Ramadan!
It's not the stress of fasting, which normally promotes inactivity. For many jihadis, Ramadan is the prime time for holy war against the infidels and the enemies of Allah.General Allen surely knows that, but instead makes up this...this nonsense. And I'm being polite.
And it's not the first time General Allen has spouted this kind of dhimmified, cringing attempt to cover for what we're really facing in AfPak and elsewhere.
General Allen is far from a stupid man. So he's obviously decided to follow orders from above and kow tow to jihad in an effort to pretend Islam's inherent violence is not a factor in what we're fighting.
This is an absolute disgrace.
