I just ran across a photo on Facebook posted by several of my friends:
I’m sort of a cynical person, so I needed to research this a bit (and see a bigger picture) before I jumped to a conclusion. I Googled “pepsi can muslims” (yeah, I know, real detailed search, there), and found a few instances of the picture. Most everyone who has commented on these images seems to be SURE this is a Muslim conspiracy with Pepsico, and the image is meant to inflame Americans and bolster Muslims, etc., etc.
Upon close inspection, I can see why people are upset. There are parts of that image that do invoke aspects of 9/11. HOWEVER, they are so vague and disconnected as to seem little more than coincidental.
I am loath to jump to the conclusion that Pepsico is catering to Islam insurgents, but maybe they could have been a leeetle more careful with their clip art. That said, does the fact that they weren’t more careful make them guilty of slightly-less-than-patriotic intentions?
