LOL, get serious. We invaded their country, overthrew it's government. ANYTHING our soldiers do will look like American policy to them and it's just the kind of thing that sets radicals off calling for Jihad.Also give the Afghans some credit they are not lunatic extremists for the most part they are simply people going about their lives. Their leaders will make noises about this but unless it becomes US policy to overtly convert the nation they are not going to go ape crap over it.
Ahh, are you sure it wasn't because the USSR was trying to take the country and make it part of the Soviet Union?The reason they called Jihad(thus the Mujahideen) against the USSR was because the USSR had an overt program of destroying religion.
WTF are you talking about?Its been 8 years as well..and more then enough Afghans have died fighting sideby side with US forces to almost make this an insult.
Duh... contradict yourself much?The enemy though loves this stuff. Helped them alot in Iraq. The source is al Jazeera which is pretty much undeniably now the propaganda arm of the enemy.
The book that is being handed to these people is a constant reminder of that belief and will be viewed as an insult.
You might as well walk right up to them and flat out say "You're wrong!"
I could understand if the troops were given legal orders to go out and convert people by what ever you consider "force" insulting, but this is not the case.
As far as handing out Satanic bibles, so what? You say not interested and move on. No insult, no foul.
