The answer to your first question lies in the front page of this website.

"10th mountain division isn't any where near farking mountains."

What does that tell you about the site?

The Duffel Blog is great, like a precision guided onion.

I like the author bio. Prince Harry's expedition to Vegas was hard duty.

Anyone who can't figure out this is obviously a joke shouldn't be on the internet anymore.

You might say it's Literally Unbelievable.

Every day I am utterly disappointed in the sheer number of people who have no ability to judge what is satire. When you tell them you always get the same response "Well, Obama is so evil it COULD be real" or "Well, Bush is so dumb it COULD be real."

Mmmmm. Boar's Head has a pesto parmesan ham that is REALLY good.

It's satire in the way that removing a leg with a grenade is surgical precision.

"Don't these assholes have any idea we're trying to partake in sacred Afghan rituals here," said village elder Mohammed Omri Gul, while caressing and ogling at a seven-year-old boy pouring his tea.

That's for sure the most true thing in the article.

The consumption of pork violates halal, a Muslim regulation that also forbids the imbibing of alcohol, personal grooming, societal advancement, and treating women like people.

No, this is the most true thing from the article :)

When your actual religion is almost a parody of brain-damaged medieval ignorance, satire is difficult.

Not knowing that website, it honestly took me until that point to realize it was satire.  I even had doubts that that point but with the next sentence mentioning boys I was able to confirm.

Sad that I'm either that gullible or that it's fathomable that we could do something that ham-handed (oh yeah pun intended!).

\gullible really does sound like orange if you say it slow!

Having known more than a few military folks, they're mostly not as racist as that website portrays them to be.

Just shower the terrorist bases with pig's blood, body parts, and whatever. Problem solved! It's like making an extremist christian watch gay porn where the characters are wearing priest and nun costumes and none of them are women lol!

FYFA: One married man even asked Cardinalli's team "how his wife could become pregnant," her report said. When that was explained, he "reacted with disgust" and asked, "How could one feel desire to be with a woman, who God has made unclean?"

It's like the goddamn Screwfly Solution over here.

For the record, I don't know of any race that has a halal requirement.

Why don't you name a few groups you consider "races" so that we have a basis for common understanding?

 "Its not racist because XXX isn't a race!" is usually the first red herring bigots throw out to defend their bigotry.

Not entirely respectful,  maybe.  It isn't like any remark was factually incorrect.

/wiping your butt with your bare hand is normal, but dogs and ham are unclean?  Keeping little boys around to rape as a status symbol?   And don't start me on how women are treated.
