The U.S. invaded two muslim countries and occupied their land for 10 years. U.S. might have valid reasons to invade but there is no reason to remain on their land for 10 years. Face the consequences now.
Here's the facts of the matter. Regardless of how you feel over burning a Koran, in the US or Afghanistan, the Afghanis are going to get pretty damn upset about it and it, as seen, will result in American Soldiers being killed. Therefore you're opinion on Koran burning is entirely irrelevant to the situation, you can be entirely against it, or entirely for it, to the Afghanis the ones who potentially will kill US Soldiers your opinion does not matter. So lets stop pretending that anyone's opinion on Koran burning does matter, what matters if the Afghan's opinions on it and what they will do if it occurs.
Put your pride aside, its irrelevant, unnecessary, and frankly if decisions were made off what would and wouldn't defend your pride it would get people killed. Is your pride so valuable?
Oh for goodness sake. For a poster with a screen name such as yours, you sure are not displaying much with this entry my friend.
You don't think that discussing the events, or offering our opinion matters, and to that you are right, our little space here in the vastness of the internet is but a spec in the overall vastness of the net. But, we are in here, on an opinion site mind you, offering our opinions and discussing the situation.
You however, wasted alot of space here to basically post on an opinion site, about how others opinions are useless and irrelevant, yet you offer your opinion of them being justified in killing Americans over the inadvertent burning of a book as if IT IS relevant.
Good job, at showing everyone how inflated your own ego is.
What has brought about this change in national character that Americans will allow themselves to be killed and then blame the killings on themselves? That has been going on at since 9/11 at least, despite the current President making apology tours and blaming America for the world's problems, past and the present.
All the modern weaponry in the world is meaningless without courage, without standing up to those who would do you harm, and doing it to them first. Americans are assisting in deposing leaders who have managed to keep a lid on much of the ignorance-fueled hatreds built up over centuries and are now allowing it, and even encouraging it, to be released.
This current President, still being supported by a generation made ignorant by an American educational system run amuck, is making the world a far more dangerous place, and many more people will die as a consequence. The United States should just pull out of everywhere and let each country fend for itself. The Americans have become unreliable and thus more dangerous than they would be just sitting on their hands at home.
They'll grope each other at airports but believe Muslims with guns are no security risk at all. It doesn't get much dumber than this.
Continue this program until there is a strong change in attitude concerning any American and Anti Western sentiments. That will win their hearts and minds much more quickly than BHO's apology tours.
