‘Bible codes’ on Afghan army guns + US burns Bibles in Afghanistan row (US white christian imperialist war demystified)

Revelations that US troops have been using guns with a Biblical reference inscribed on part of the weapon throws the claim that their military is a secular force into question. The Pentagon has been buying scopes from a company called Trijicon for at least five years. It is South African founder started the practice three decades ago. The company has continued to insrcribe the parts ever since. Al Jazeera’s David Chater has more on the gun sights which are being used in Afghanistan. (Jan 21, 09).

US burns Bibles in Afghanistan row

The video, shot about a year ago, appeared to show military chaplains stationed in the US air base at Bagram discussing how to distribute copies of the Bible printed in the country’s main Pashto and Dari languages.

In one recorded sermon, Lieutenant-Colonel Gary Hensley, the chief of the US military chaplains in Afghanistan, tells soldiers that, as followers of Jesus Christ, they all have a responsibility “to be witnesses for him”.

“The special forces guys – they hunt men basically. We do the same things as Christians, we hunt people for Jesus … we hunt them down,” he said.

“Get the hound of heaven after them, so we get them into the kingdom. That’s what we do, that’s our business.”
