HairBolus: It must be a serious news site. This is the patriotic image (in full) that they use to get people to sign up.

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 :)

Not even close to Onion-level satire.

Hamhanded, if you will

It's by military folks, for military folks.  If you don't get it, don't read it.

/I don't expect to laugh at accountant jokes, but I don't make snide remarks about their humor, either.

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

What race is the article racist against?

What race would you describe Afghanis as?

I don't know how I'd describe this guy.

Apparently the application of critical thinking caused a cognitive dissonance moment in Wolf_Blitzer as he's utterly vanished now.

Eh, this part made me chuckle.

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.
