    Female U.S. Soldiers in Afghanistan ‘Encouraged’ to Wear Hijab

    Female U.S. soldiers are being “encouraged” to wear headscarves in Afghanistan in an effort to get closer to the locals, according to The Daily Caller.

    Major Kyndra Rotunda, the executive director of the Military Law and Policy Institute, says that being “encouraged” to do something in the military is tantamount to being “ordered” to do it, putting the servicewomen in a touchy situation.

    You can also just fail at whatever you're trying to build over there.

    Muslims are not asking the female soldiers to wear Hijab.


    Lt. Col. Michael Lawhorn, a U.S. Central Command spokesman, stressed to TheDC that while commanders are encouraging American women to wear headscarves while engaging with civilians, they are not having them wear the headscarf in lieu of their kevlar helmets.

    local commanders are encouraging them — not demanding, but encouraging — if they feel more comfortable — ‘Feel free to wear a headscarf.’”

    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    Nope, sorry.

    IF a US Commander "feels" the need to even address this crap it's an issue.

    The Muslim "Culture" is not he ONLY Culture....they'll have to deal with it.

    You realize that we are on THEIR territory...When people come here, we expect them to respect our culture. When we go there, it's reasonable that others expect us to respect their culture...This isn't even that serious of an issue.

    the US commander is the one with the problem because the fact is Muslims are not asking the female soldiers to wear Hijab.

    if the soldiers were being ordered to wear the Hijab and they do not wish to then that is a different matter. fact is they are not.

    Of course that dose of humility would only be for the women to take. I take it you're not a feminist.
