A question!

What makes you love women wearing this:

And attack them for wearing this:
And force them to unwear this:

If the lady wearing bikini is free to wear what she likes, then the women wearing the hijab (veil) or niqab are free to choose what to wear. And it is none of anyone's fuckin' business to tell them what to wear.

My point of view is not based on religion here, because I do believe I have no right to question everyone's religion. It is based on the very simple sense of freedom the west that is implemented in the west. I do believe anyone is free to wear what they like, specially when what they wear is part of what they believe. Be what they believe right or wrong, no one should tell them to do what to do. And logically, if those who are against hijab or niqab because they are religious symbols, why don't you people go ask Christians to unwear their crosses, and the Jews to unwear their hats, and the seikhs unwear their turbans.

If the argument is about the fact that wearing a cross or a hat or a turban is not an obligation in those religions. I say this does not still give you any reason or justification to force some kind of dress on people.

And I wonder, if Muslims in the 52 Muslim country around the world forced the Christians living in their countries to unwear their crosses. In Islam, Jesus Christ was not crucified, and so to a Muslim a cross should be a religious symbol of something they believe to be untrue. Will anyone defend those who force Christians to unwear their crosses??

I am not putting any professional argument here, this is how the common Muslim thinks nowadays after France prohibited hijab in schools, Tunisia following the same steps, England's attack on niqab and finally Egypt's University of Helwan controversy over niqab.

If there are people who are free to walk almost naked, there are people who are absolutely free to wear what they believe to be modest. Be they Muslims, Christians, Jews or even aliens.

Fire in the hole: 12 months are enough

"Petty Officer Bacos said he was on patrol with the marine squad who were looking for an insurgent - Saleh Gowad - who had been captured three times but released.

Petty Officer Bacos said the marines were angry the insurgent had been freed and, frustrated at not finding him, instead seized civilian Hashim Awad from his home.

The medic said Mr Awad, 52, was put in a hole.

He testified: "I knew that we were doing something wrong. I tried saying something, sir."

But he said a marine told him to "quit being a pussy".

Petty Officer Bacos said squad leader Sgt Lawrence Hutchins III then fired three shots into Mr Awad's head followed by at least seven more rounds to the head from Cpl Trent Thomas.

Petty Officer Bacos said Sgt Hutchins called command for permission to fire on a man he had seen digging a hole.

Prosecutors say an AK-47 assault rifle, bullets and a shovel were placed next to Mr Awad's body to make it appear as if he were trying to plant a roadside bomb.

Seven marines are at various stages of the militaryjustice process over the kidnap and murder.

The US military has said the death penalty will not be sought against any of the marines.

Presiding judge Col Steve Folsom said Petty Officer Bacos could face a life sentence if found guilty but media reports have said it could be as little as 12 months." BBC News

Well... I really have nothing much to say more than what the story tells... Just do what you like, get tried, and get tickeled in your ass for punishment... That's fun...

I don't know why I remembered the following verses while reading the piece of news:
This time the bullet cold rocked ya
A yellow ribbon instead of a swastika
Nothin' proper about ya propaganda
Fools follow rules when the set commands ya
Said it was blue
When ya blood was read
That's how ya got a bullet blasted through ya head

Blasted through ya head
