Maybe muslims will be so afraid of this they stop committing acts of terrorism.

Well, they are selling a product that makes fraudulent claims, presumably at a premium over the regular product. (Of course it's okay since they are selling it to the gullible. Let the buyer beware!)

They are intentionally inciting those who do believe in magic... which has worked out so well for us over the last many years. But hey... Bring, It, On!

Breathing incites militant Muslims.

And militant Christians, and militant Jews, and militant Buddhists, and militant NE Patriot fans, and militant Republicans, and militant vegans, and...   The common denominator is militancy. What people get militant about is irrelevant.

These bullets have one purpose - to anger people who would otherwise not be angry.  This company is a bunch of trolls and their customers are morons and assholes.  Getting shot with one of these bullets would not keep a Muslim out of heaven (even if it existed), so the bullets won't even do what the manufacturers claim.  These things are being produced specifically and explicitly to insult and threaten people who have never done anything to deserve it, for no other reason than to add a little bit more anger and hatred to the world.

That definitely follows.

Imagine the smell when those are fired?
Scorched pork and gunpowder...
It'd be like Fourth of July anywhere south of Lexington.

No, she'll deep-fry them in butter, with extra butter.
Possibly skipping the ammo and just using the butter.

If you are stupid and ignorant enough, nothing matters.

Let's follow the logic here: if you believe that these bullets will send them to Hell, that means you believe that their religion is real. Which means you'd best start bowing to Mecca.

If you can estimate the populations of dinosaurs over time, you can estimate the amount of your body that is composed of atoms that were once part of a dinosaur.

Similarly, if you can estimate the populations of pigs over time, you can estimate the amount of the prophet Mohammed that was composed of atoms that were once part of a pig.

Why not just pour bacon grease over regular ammo? Same thing, right?

Don't forget cow-coated bullets for the Hindus.

"smuggling bullets into us military troops."  That's called shooting the troops.
 
2013-06-22 01:54:45 PM
I am immediately reminded of the last Tom Clancy book I read. Teeth of the Tiger. In which one of the main characters (I want to say it was Jack Ryan Jr) presses a football into the hands of a Muslim terrorist he just shot or poisoned or whatever. Says something pithy about how Allah won't talk to him now or something.

I'm willing to bet the people who developed this bullet masturbated to that scene.

Kind of like Fark Liberals in a religion thread.

2013-06-22 01:57:55 PM
I think we need an enemy to rally against.  I don't mean your run of the mill bigotry but a group that we can claim is trying to change us.  We hated Germans even before the first world war and then we had communist to hate for a real long time.  Well your average commie is a free market entrepreneur so  Muslims became the next target.  They have attacked us a few times in the last 35 years so the fit the bill.

That word: "fraudulent" .  I don't think it means what you think it means.

Inconceivable.
 
2013-06-22 02:01:46 PM
There have already been rumors among the jihadis for years that we dip our bullets in pork blood.  The mullahs have already told them that Allah will forgive them and let them have their 72 virgins in paradise even if they are killed with a pork defiled bullet.

Proof positive that this religion stuff is pretty stupid.  It's the same as most Christians acting like assholes but still thinking they are going to heaven because they said the Magic Mickey Mouse Club words concerning Jesus.
 
2013-06-22 02:03:10 PM
Pork, OK that's why she wouldn't touch the ribs when I was checking out at the market.....
 
2013-06-22 02:03:57 PM
They didn't even bother researching the muslim stance on haram food... If you are being force fed it does not affect your standing with your god. If it is the only foodstuff available and it is pork or death, it does not affect your standing with your god. If eating pork doesn't always count, why would being shot with a bit of pork count?

The people who are buying them don't believe Muslims are going to heaven anyway.  The people would be shot by them don't know (or care).  These are novelty items.  Nothing more.  Same as Zombie killer bullets and any other marketing device.  Turning them into something "scarier" than they are plays into the manufacturers hands.  Thanks to Fark, many will now become novelty item purchasers.
 
2013-06-22 02:08:51 PM
Oh, they want to anger Muslims.

I thought they were just trying to make suicide tasty.

iheartscotch: Meh, they already hate us and as long as the rounds aren't used on innocent bystanders; they can make bacon infused hellfire missiles.



The thing is, if you mean Muslims in general, "They" don't already hate us.  The extremists who hate us would hate us no matter what.  The moderates who don't hate us might start hating us if we continue to insult them for no reason.  These bullets do nothing to intimidate the extremists; all they do is make the moderates angry.  This risks turning moderates into extremists, which is strategically unwise, to put it mildly.  Why start a fight that we don't need?

Then is it the facial hair that scares these people? Are they going to develop high-tech bullets to use against the Amish next?

As I recall, the British, in 19th century India, were issued ammunition that was lubed with lard, (muzzleloaders).  The objections by Hindu soldiers, as having to consume beef, was one of the causes of the Sepoy Rebellion.  Other than that, yeah, these guys are asshats.

I noticed this in the early 90s and it seemed like drug dealers were the New Hotness for bad guys, but they didn't have the same zing as the good ole Rooskies. Fortunately for frothing-at-the-mouth nativists some Moose Limbs came along and solved that problem.

"We" are not starting a fight. A bunch of 'necks are trolling and you are allowing them to troll you. You give them what they want by taking it seriously and getting upset about it.

Read my comment from earlier in the thread.
