    LOL, ok. The response to burning a few papers has sure been measured and reasonable.

    Do you think the response would have been more measured if we hadn't apologized?

    I don't think it's made anything better. In fact, it might have made things worse by emboldening those who want to **** with us. Do you really think people who think this level of violence is ok are going to be swayed by an apology? It sure doesn't appear so.

    Where did we even come near to acting like them? Seriously, you think burning quran used as a terrorists' terror manual as trash together with other disposal trash constitutes acting like these savages? Or do you think we should just return the terror manual to them so they could carry-out the violent instructions written on the sidebar?

    Now in Libya Islamists are desecrating headstones commemorating British and Allied servicemen, killed during World War II, over Koran burning.

    Who's going to apologize for this, I wonder.
