    The three women are in Hijab's while the male soldier in the background is wearing his Kevlar helmet. So it is safe to assume that the situation they were in called for a helmet for the men at least those women have no protection.

    If we were fighting in a war where the majority of people were Catholic, would we force Muslim, Atheist and Jewish soldiers to wear a cross?

    no, this does not bother me. I had a pretty varied service career and spent some time in several disparate countries, we always did what the natives considered customary or freindly, the closer to them you had to be, the more so we adjusted. When in Rome.

    It's customary for them to blow themselves up and chop heads off too. Screw that.

    I meant for the fact that the women are obviously unprotected too. As I asked above the male is wearing kevlar while the women are in Hijab's. It seems to me that if he is wearing his kevlar it was warrented.

    Thats bullshit.. whats the point? wearing military uniforms, and carrying M16s it seems pretty stupid to cover their heads with that crap.. anyway their heads are covered with the helmet...They do look kind of sexy though

    I find it disturbing that the women are so a) stupid b) brainwashed c) accept themselves as non equals, almost dogs that they accept this kind of treatment.

    But it is their choice. What do they do when their comrade gets shot in the head? Just walk away? Don't they think to get angry at the fact that there are helmets available to prevent that comrades death?

    I have no sympathy for a woman who cannot/will not think.
