    You didn't give us much to work with; English breaks all of its own rules, uses foreign words hand in hand with English equivalents and is based on a redundant alphabet.

    Frankly it's amazing we were able to base any form of government on English at all, yet we created not only the longest surviving democracy in human history but the strongest nation on earth.

    Nah. We were offering nothing. A stupid Chaplain, who in all likelihood nobody cares about, told some apathetic troops to hand out Bibles. The troops probably took the Bibles and threw them in the bottom of their sea bags.

    Non-issue folks.

    I am not in favor of it as a military goal, as it is a waste of resources, but the personal time of a soldier is their own. If a guy gives another guy a book, and a third guy has the notion that he has the right to physically attack either of the first two over the exchange, I want that third man physically attacked in response, to as lethal a degree as he requires, until he recants his previously held notion. Anyone who thinks they can attack another over a voluntary gift of a book needs to have the notion beaten out of them.

    Thats not what the bolded portion says though. Leaving other people alone, or live and let live, is certainly a behavior we are willing to beat into anyone. Lets be frank about it.

    The US soldiers were holding service in an afghan school?

    What did I miss?

    What crusade?

    You have American military people talking about Christianity. Suddenly it is now a crusade.
