Something Wondrous Strange

"God is my co-sniper." -- Velociman


"God is my co-sniper." -- Velociman

U.S. Army Sgt. Daniel Alonzo, of the 177th Field Artillery Regiment, 172nd Brigade, allows an Iraqi police officer to look at his M-4 carbine assault rifle at a post in Hayy, Iraq. Light-enhancing combat rifle sights made by Trijicon for U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan carry an ID number on them like the one pictured above (top center): "ACOG4X32JN8:12" - which reads as "Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight, 4x32, John 8:12", referring to a Bible verse with the last six characters. That verse is "Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, 'I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life'". After concerns were raised about about whether the inscriptions break a government rule that bars proselytizing by American troops, Trijicon has now announced that it will no longer imprint the verses on the sides of scopes intended for the U.S. military. -- The Big Picture
It will come to a Crusade. Depend upon it.

The lower receiver for the AR-15 (or M4, if you will) I am going to build was shipped today. I'm building a military specification weapon on the cheap (without full-auto capabilities, of course). The fancy God-scribed Trijicon optics will cost more than the rifle itself. But I WILL eventually outfit that beast with the Trijicon. Just because. God is my co-sniper.

Which ones? The ones in Iraq or the ones in the White House?

Kim, Gerard,

"God is my Co-Sniper", needs to be trademarked, ASAP. I'll buy the mug, I'll put the bumper sticker on my car, and I'll wear the tee-shirt.

I propose a collaboration on the graphics, and I'll be in touch over the weekend on some basic ideas. It'll be clean, simple, and highly offensive.

That's the best catch-phrase I've read in years, and it needs to be built upon.

Jim, I didn't know your species still existed in Galveston? Glad there are still some left who think like you. Most of the species left after the hurricane, are still politically correct liberals. The Galveston Daily Rag is indicative of the mind mode on the island. Am with you on the catch-phrase. Simple, classy, catchy.

So help me God, "God is my co-sniper", is my new mantra.

"Muslims have waged jihad against the West since their insane, pedophiliac founder started their cult; they have waged jihad against the U.S. since our inception. But what is worse about our policy of establishing officially Islamic nations and pouring money, technology, weapons, and training into them is that we have been labeled as “occupiers” being on a “Christian crusade to wipe out Islam.” Think about that. We have been demonized as “occupying Christian crusaders” (if only!) even as we have waged jihad in the service of Islam, helped Muslims spread Islam and wipe out Christians, and died for ungrateful Iraqis even as terrorists from all over the war invaded and occupied Iraq, and slaughtered and oppressed Iraqis. (And don’t even get me started on the fact that we—the United States of America—are truly being invaded and occupied by illegal aliens warring on us!)"

Eventually, many years from now, "Eurabia and the entire neosocialist project will crash and decompose under reality’s gravity even if no one does anything to precipitate it. It will crash for it must -- like a bridge designed by junkyard architects, built with imagined struts, recycled Third World cables bought on ruptured credit, incompatible materials and exploding bolts hailed as the last word in social engineering.

The task is to be ready for the aftermath."

Mizz E:
If Europe collapses into third-world squalor, islam will have accomplished its aims. I fear a moslem UC (united caliphate) with nukes. And fuck spell-check for chiding me to capitalize 'islam', and 'moslem'.
Make war on the beast.

Unfortunately, all the tribute we've paid the Pudwhacking Pakleds hasn't provided them with enough education or ingenuity to help them keep their stuff 'going', and we've bankrupted ourselves to the point of having to fight them off with sticks and rocks....weapons they are more proficient in wielding against us than we are against them. Ask the Israelis just how well their modern weapons work against the Philistine hordes.

The islamists already believe that they are fighting the crusades. Did anyone ever make the Templars take the crosses off their shields? I only wish that whoever in the media brought this to the publics attention would have just kept their mouth shut. Obviously a product manufactured by a company with values.
I will be putting one on my A3 Colt as soon as I can scrape the pennies together. I am feeling conflicted inside over whether I should hope to be able to locate one, or whether I should hope that there is a HUGE run on all products by this company thereby balancing out all the bullshit that they are undoubtedly going through for being true to themselves.
If the time ever comes when I must use a weapon in a violent situation, I'll take God as my co-sniper, too. And may He continue to bless America.

The S will HT enemy F when the preponderance of the beneficiaries of Christendom realize that [our] Civilization is not a suicide pact, and more pointedly, that 'Thou shall not kill' is actually "Thou shalt not murder".

Subtle, but the wide revelation of the difference could well be decisive to the survival of a civilization of people that has been slowly boiled in the stew-pot of their enemies and indoctrinated into believing that they do not deserve to enjoy the fruits of their labors.

Praise Jesus and pass the ammunition.
