Good! Everybody else opposing seems to have been contemptuously ignored.....his actions are affecting high level responses in the White House and from NYC where the community centre is being built.
Force the buggers to face up to the groundswell, that's what I say. The medium by which this happens doesn't really matter now.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
Troops are not going to be in anymore danger then they already are because of some bull**** book burning from some civs
Remember, the 10 members of a medical team (unarmed) that were shot and killed by militants as they were returning from providing eye treatment and other health care in remote villages in northern A-stan? The Taliban are butchers with no honor and kill without remorse to further their extremist goals.
A simple cartoon ignited a storm across the world in protest and murder. We can blame the idiots within Islam for over reacting all we want, but in the end it was stupid civilians who provided the ammunition for others to die And for what? In the name of exercising a stupid "right" to aggravate our (my) enemy? My kind are targetted. Not the cartoonists. None of these cowardly book burners will have to face the enemy they enrage.
And make no mistake. It is as paganistic as any ancient ritual designed to display just how far the faithful will go to defend God or to condemn an enemy of God. These American ****s are no different from the 9/11 terrorists. They just haven't been pushed as far. You want a war with all of Islam? Start burning the Qur'an as a stupid excuse to celebrate pathetic unearned rights. Of course, my kind will do the dying for such trifle and unnecessary activities so what do the righteous safe at home in front of their religious camp fires care.
"**** the Troop."

The Islamonuts need no excuse to attack the soldiers. They would have done it whether a book was burned or not.
I do support the troops, though I believe they would be better off deployed back home to deal with the gang shoot-outs and Islamic rioting here.
They could do with being paid well and given proper equipment which actually works too.
American! And proud of it! You?
So all Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, and Air Force think exactly the same as you? No said they had more knowledge than General Petreaus, that is a strawman argument.Somebody who holds more weight on opinions than General Patreaus or plenty of military members across the branches?
More than I would like due to them starting this war.Somebody who has a clue about the culture of our enemy?
Such as whom? Or is this like an Obama argument, just throw out a high percentage without naming any?Somebody who trumps the cultural experts who study this enemy almost daily?
And mine around the cowardice of appeasement.Our (my) enemy designs their behaviors around excuses.
And they force compliance through threat.They recruit on excuses.
Those 'backwoods ignorant Christian hicks' as you so kindly put it, are the Mom's, Dad's, brothers, sisters, friends, Husband's and Wives of those serving with you, and their right to burn the book should be what you are defending just as much as you are defending the Islamic world here. Your disdain for your fellow countrymen speaks volumes Sarge.Burning a bunch of Qur'ans on international television may bring joy to a bunch of backwood ignorant Christian hicks, but it will be yet another excuse for plenty to take up arms and join the fight against our troops who are seen as representing these book burners.
And what will be the silly excuse they use next week?It is not only unproffessional and disrespectful to the wider core of our Muslim support, but it inflames an already pissed off enemy who seeks the next excuse to legitmize his "defense."
Yes.Death in war happens.
That is a disgusting statement about people over there trying to do no more than help.They got caught by the enemy in a combat zone and paid the price.
Maybe you are in the wrong business if you are that scared.Paganistic Qur'an burning on U.S. soil is feul and will see great recruitment throughout the region just on that unnecessary fact.
The Pastor is not a military chaplain as far as I know, so your observation means little.Such activity is forbidden inside the military, especially in these foreign lands, for a very specific reason.
And when is it that you see disrespect to the wider core of our relations? Hmmmm? Building a Mosque of Conquest, then issuing a threat when confronted in an interview? Does that get your Marine hackles up?It is not only unproffessional and disrespectful to the wider core of our Muslim support, but it inflames an already pissed off enemy who seeks the next excuse to legitmize his "defense."
Do you believe in God?And make no mistake. It is as paganistic as any ancient ritual designed to display just how far the faithful will go to defend God or to condemn an enemy of God.
Really? You're offensive, and I would ask you to state why you would say such an untrue, inflammatory thing?These American ****s are no different from the 9/11 terrorists.
So your sympathy's lay with Islam do they?They just haven't been pushed as far.
it is Muslims that waged war with the US in the name of Islam.You want a war with all of Islam?
pathetic, and unearned rights? You are a poser. NOT ONE MARINE I KNOW would EVER show such disdain for the constitution as you do. So you have outed yourself, and just another internet wannabe.Start burning the Qur'an as a stupid excuse to celebrate pathetic unearned rights.
Nonsense, "Your kind" will pop open another bag of popcorn, and flip in a good war movie, and fantasize about being that which you can never be. A Marine.Of course, my kind will do the dying for such trifle and unnecessary activities so what do the righteous safe at home in front of their religious camp fires care.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
Alexis de Tocqueville
Why don't we have a book burning contest. Koran vs Bible. Winner gets a pizza party. That way if asked, they weren't burning the book out of hate, they just wanted some pizza.
A great way to relieve some religious frustration.
A one hour ESPN Special?
I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
ESPN Specials have to deal with either The King or Farve. No one else is allowed a special.
