I’m seriously enjoying this. But then again I’m just a common sense kind of guy. I see this entire thing as a REASON we should be fighting and killing these bastards with extreme prejudice.
Quran-Burning Protests Rage In Afghanistan (From NPR, No Link EVER)
Afghan protests against the burning of a Quran in Florida entered a third day with a demonstrations in the south and east Sunday, while the Taliban called on people to rise up, blaming government forces for any violence.
The desecration at a small U.S. church has outraged Muslims worldwide, and in Afghanistan many of the demonstrations have turned into deadly riots. Protests in the north and south in recent days have killed 20 people.
JALALABAD, Afghanistan — Demonstrators battled police in southern Afghanistan’s main city on Sunday and took to the streets in the turbulent east for the first time as Western pleas failed to halt the third day of rage over a Florida pastor’s burning of the Koran.
Take a good look at these pictures:
The bottom picture was a fire started with the American flag and an Obama effigy. Can you see the “peaceful” in these guys? I’m looking real hard and I just don’t see it. I also know that the only way I’d have that kind of rage in me is if someone hurt my family. A book burning? hell even a flag burning wouldn’t produce that kind of rage..Well unless I was on scene when some asshole did it.
To my progressive friends..Like Leslie of Oklahoma Is it okay that the Muslims lump ALL of US in as guilty for the actions of One pastor? Is it okay that they blame the entire nation for the actions of a few? I really want your opinion on it, really I do..
Remember “All Muslims are not bad” maybe they should understand “All Americans are not burning Korans”… Just a thought.
The other thing that truly bugs me is: The knee jerk reaction that this caused. Our progressive idiots like Leslie seem to think if NOBODY burns a Koran, it makes things safer for our troops IN WAR. This thinking is so ridiculous that I have a tough time even grasping the argument.
Let me try though: Because a man burned a Koran in FLORIDA, the enemy will be MORE inclined to try and kill our troops than they were BEFORE the Koran was burned. Yeah, That’s it right?
Then this makes sense too:
If the pastor in Florida decided to CONVERT to Islam then the enemy would lay down their weapons and quit fighting too right?
Leslie, and any other Progressive that would like to try and convince me that the Pastor is responsible for the deaths or the “threat to our troops” is more than welcome to try. But I warn you I have many friends and family in the Afghan theater. And they say without exception this isn’t a problem one way or the other. It is another recruitment tool for the already to far gone. That’s it. Most of them say all it does is make easier targets because the enemy’s emotions are so high they don’t think, they offer great sight patterns.
And just for the record, I’m never a fan of burning books. I subscribe to the common sense version of censorship. I just don’t read books I don’t like, I don’t read Mein Kampf. I don’t read the turner Diaries, I don’t read the Koran…However the Koran is responsible for more death and destruction than Hitler, and Stalin combined so if a book has to be burned that’s a good one.
