    @Shining:

    I had no idea the US army let it soldiers read the Quran.

    Why wouldn’t they?  Freedom of religion and religious expression is one of the fundamental freedoms granted to us in the Constitution.  Is the Quran not a religious book, of a major religion?

    In many respects, the United States military is much freer then our civilian lives.  They honestly and truthfully grant freedom of religion and religious expression.  Too bad the rest of the nation cannot seem to even grant us those piddly little freedoms anymore.


  • Multiple Reasons:

    1.  Freedom of Religion (which is why, for example, Ft. hood has a HUGE Neo-Pagan group)
    2.  Education (for folks going into Psy Ops, Intelligence, etc.
    3.  “Know they Enemy”


  • “Know your enemy”….I can think of no better reason.
