Most of the troops are just looking at their watches, waiting for him to shut up, so they can go back to doing whatever it was they were doing before this jerk interrupted their free time. Honestly, this is nothing to be worried about. Troops don't care about converting anyone. They care about the following things:

    1. Avoiding death.
    2. Avoiding injury.
    3. Sleeping and eating.
    4. The occasional port-a-potty fantasy.

    That's it, nothing more to it. Perhaps there are a few morons who think it's alright to go around trying to convert people but they'd never actually be allowed to do it. Their squad-leader, or team-leader, or platoon commander would just tell them to stfu and watch their sector. Seriously, Iím laughing right now just thinking about someone in my team trying to convert an Iraqi during a combat patrol. I would have punched the **** out of them.
    A port-a-potty fantasy???

    Hey kid. Look at post #51 the first time you addressed me. Then practice what you preach.

    I don't care if they listen or don't. It's illegal to do, both through the State they are in and through the rules of the military. It's not the military's place to spread a particular religion, they are forbidden to do so. Handing out bibles is in violation of this. End of story.

    If you think your message is so great and will be well received, send missionaries. Let's see what happens to your crusade once it's not backed by the guns and might of the US Army. Though it's still probably illegal by Afghanistan law.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Ah come on Goobieman, you can do better than that. I dont think its fair to say that. Statistically, when compared to the entire muslim population on this planet, only a fraction are extremists.
    But, you DO agree that the extremists are likely to seek the conversion of other to Islam, yes?
    The then discussion boils down to the definition of "many".
    If 5% of the Mislum population are extrmists, that's 50 million people.

    Muslims can grow up and just say no.

    As far as having bibles, even in the local language, and being willing to share em, that is the Christian's right, and we should RUB IT IN THEIR MUSLIM FACES. Muslims can learn to tolerate other religions very fast, if it is in their face and on pain of death. Muslims can learn that they can just say no thanks to a bible, and move on. Any violence against Americans, for acting like Christians if they are, or acting like an Atheist or Jew or what the hell ever, should be met with the thunder of American guns. Why pussyfoot around with Muslims on the religious issue ? Why not tell them American Soldiers are going to act upon their religious freedom , any old time they want, and if Muslims can't live and let live, then they can die in the struggle about it. America does think religious freedom is worth fighting for, killing for, so why not be blunt to the Muslims and explain to them, that they can learn some tolerance, or be killed for acting out over religious choices of others. No More Accomodation. Demand indifference to the religion of our soldiers, and punish anything else.

    That's really gross. Maybe you need a chaplain for your deviant ways.

    Mind if i join?
    Please do, i have a pack or two to finish.
    It does wonders to calm you down =D

    No problemo Kaya.
    I look on Turkey as a model for Somaliland.
    Right now the consitution needs a little changing, i'd rather secularism was written in to prevent any Islamists getting control
