Hey guys as most of you know I work on MacDill AFB, I was working at CENTCOM, until a new directive came out from the Pentagon that pretty much anything I.T. related fall underneath one umbrella, so now I work for DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) ANYWAY.. long story short, I am deployed in the middle east (Qatar to be exact) The Amir here is very westernized, and allows importation of pork for westerners although they are limited. The U.S. government wants to make sure we do not offend anyone of muslim faith, and because we have many people her who are muslim I wanted your take on this: I goto our PX, and we have NO pork meats, and have been told we won't have anything with pork in it. THen last week, I discover one of my favorite bad to eat but great tasting snacks of ALL TIME... Hot N Spicy Fried pork skins... from baken-etz YUUUUUUMMMMMY... Now I feel guilty (only slightly) because we do not have a rations card for the pork, but I dont think they realize this is actually made from pork skin... the muslims that is... We have many people who are muslim or grew up in and around the muslim faith... whats your view?
