Jew Bullets


Israeli-made bullets bought by the U.S. Army to plug a shortfall should be used for training only, not to fight Muslim guerrillas in Iraq and Afghanistan, U.S. lawmakers told Army generals on Thursday.

Since the Army has other stockpiled ammunition, "by no means, under any circumstances should a round (from Israel) be utilized," said Rep. Neil Abercrombie of Hawaii, the top Democrat on a House of Representatives Armed Services subcommittee with jurisdiction over land forces.

Maybe they can paint a little yellow Star of David on the casings to avoid confusion.

The Army contracted with Israel Military Industries Ltd. in December for $70 million in small-caliber ammunition.

The Israeli firm was one of only two worldwide that could meet U.S. technical specifications and delivery needs, said Brig. Gen. Paul Izzo, the Army's program executive officer for ammunition. The other was East Alton, Illinois-based Winchester Ammunition, which also received a $70 million contract.

What if Winchester Ammunition employs Jews in its manufacturing, or what if Jews were involved in transporting the bullets to theater? Of course, I can only assume that Rep. Abercrombie would also demand that no American Jews be stationed in Iraq or Afghanistan, since any bullet would by definition become a Jew Bullet if fired by a Jew. But it isn't just a Democrat prejudice in play here:

Although the Army should not have to worry about "political correctness," Abercrombie was making a valid point about the propaganda pitfalls of using Israeli rounds in the U.S.-declared war on terror, said Rep. Curt Weldon, the Pennsylvania Republican who chairs the subcommittee on tactical air and land forces.

You gotta love the "Army should not have to worry about "political correctness, [but]" phrasing; almost as much as the "U.S.-declared war on terror". Thank you al-Reuters.

How long are we going to jeopardize the safety of our citizens and soldiers by continuing to cater to pre-medieval mindsets? Gosh, it's a good thing we weren't quite so sensitive when we were fighting Germany while they were on their genocidal kick.

That is unbelievable.

You kill me sometimes, Charles.
