Military Times reports that Marines have been told “audible farting has been banned downrange because it offends the Afghans.” (Note: Downrange is military-speak for battle zone.)

Apparently, while Americans must be sensitive to Afghanis’ treating women like cattle as a cultural prerogative, natural bodily functions are not to be tolerated.

On the other hand, it looks like a capitalist opportunity for the defense vendor who develops technology that ensures SBDs.

The comments themselves are worth a read.

Update (Bryan): The Marine Corps should re-think this. Unilateral disarmament is no way to win a war.

He appears frequently on NRA News as their “unofficial” analyst and was published in the Texas Review of Law and Politics with David Kopel and Carlisle Moody.
