Mountains out of molehills: Mecca wear for the troops

Conservatives consistently deride liberals for being offended over the most "innocent" things and demanding political correctness. Yet, they have no problem making a mountain out of a molehill when they find something offensive. Malice in Malkinland is hoping to stir up the outrage amongst her fellow wingnuts with a story about "Mecca" merchandise being sold in military base stores. Marc Moran of reports:
Some U.S. military veterans are upset that bases across the country are selling a clothing line called "Mecca: Since Day One," which is made in Pakistan. Many veterans and active military interviewed by Cybercast News Service view the name and slogan on the civilian hip-hop clothing line as a direct reference to the Islamic holy city in Saudi Arabia, and they do not think it is appropriate for such items to be sold at the military's Post Exchange (PX) System on U.S. military bases. "What in the hell is going on here?" asked one active duty soldier about to be deployed to Iraq, after seeing the name of Mecca and the slogan "Since Day One" on numerous pants and shirts at a U.S. Army base inside the U.S.
Just one quesiton: Isn't Mecca in a country that is supposed to be our ally?
