"If religious instruction were not allowed until the child had attained the age of reason, we would be living in quite a different world" - Christopher Hitchens

If you think your message is so great and will be well received, send missionaries. Let's see what happens to your crusade once it's not backed by the guns and might of the US Army. Though it's still probably illegal by Afghanistan law.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

The then discussion boils down to the definition of "many".
If 5% of the Mislum population are extrmists, that's 50 million people.

Muslims can grow up and just say no.
As far as having bibles, even in the local language, and being willing to share em, that is the Christian's right, and we should RUB IT IN THEIR MUSLIM FACES. Muslims can learn to tolerate other religions very fast, if it is in their face and on pain of death. Muslims can learn that they can just say no thanks to a bible, and move on. Any violence against Americans, for acting like Christians if they are, or acting like an Atheist or Jew or what the hell ever, should be met with the thunder of American guns. Why pussyfoot around with Muslims on the religious issue ? Why not tell them American Soldiers are going to act upon their religious freedom , any old time they want, and if Muslims can't live and let live, then they can die in the struggle about it. America does think religious freedom is worth fighting for, killing for, so why not be blunt to the Muslims and explain to them, that they can learn some tolerance, or be killed for acting out over religious choices of others. No More Accomodation. Demand indifference to the religion of our soldiers, and punish anything else.
