From The First Post (thanks to Twostellas):

Why? Would U.S. soldiers be put to work delivering wine for Holy Communion? Would U.S. soldiers be put to work delivering matzos for the Passover seder?

Obviously not.

So why are U.S. soldiers being put to work delivering sheep for slaughter during Ramadan?

Obviously to win Muslim hearts and minds. But will it work? Is there any evidence of any kind that any of these gestures of good will have ever been reciprocated, or ever mitigated the ferocity of the jihad against us?
