    America basher’s backfire: Killed by flag smoke

    "Old Glory strikes back.

    In an apparent case of red, white and blue revenge, a Pakistani protester died yesterday after inhaling smoke from a burning American flag during an anti-US rally. Abdullah Ismail succumbed at Mayo Hospital in Lahore a day after attending the fierce protest at the city’s Mall Road, where an estimated 10,000 people rallied. Witnesses said Ismail had complained of feeling ill after breathing fumes from burning flags."

    I have searched for any source to confirm your position and I found nothing. When posting in threads that I start where you wish to make claims that run counter my OP kindly provide the basis for your statements, in other words "get real" and stop with the unsubstantiated nonsense....

    This was first reported as follows: "One of the participants of the rally, Abdullah Ismail, passed away after he was taken to Mayo Hospital. Witnesses said he had complained of feeling unwell from the smoke from US flags burnt at the rally", as reported in The Express Tribune, a Pakistani newspaper affiliated with The International Herald Tribune (“The Global Edition of The New York Times”).

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    most of the flags you see in the news are hand drawn and kind of crappy! Bet you could make a killing by opening up a chain of stores in the middleeast called "Flags of the West". All the Flags made in the US which helps with the unemployment and people in the middle east can burn the real thing while actually helping western economies. Win win
