    Muslims need to grow up and get a grip. We need to stop giving into them everytime they get their fur rubbed the wrong way.

    "Emboldening"

    Now there's a blast from the (neocon/Bush/nightmare) past.

    The troops were killed because of the book burning -- not because we apologized for the mistake.

    We could probably do that a lot better if we weren't fighting wars on their soil.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    But, you still blame our troops for the problem.

    Nice!!

    If psycho Muslims hadn't murdered 3,000 of our countrymen, we wouldn't be fighting on their soil.

    That's an unfeeling remark, in my opinion.

    The age of those WWII graves is unimportant, what is important is what they represent.

    The desecration of these graves is worse, as it was deliberate, while the burning of the Koran was accidental.
