    only those who did the killings are the direct cause of the deaths. just horrible.

    as for Rev Jones, well, what a wonderfully sweet example of christian tolerance and understanding. he must be very proud of himself.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    No, those twisted cocksuckers in that crowd are directly responsible for these deaths. Terry Jones was simply excercising his 1st Amendment rights. It's just like burning the American Flag. I am offended as hell by that, but it's perfectly legal to do so. It would be illegal for me to kill someone over it, not to mention stupid as all get out.

    If morons in this country didn't walk around burning Korans and proving Islamic extremists right (who claim that the U.S. hates Muslims), some of this stuff could be avoided. Some people will always hate us, but when we prove their accusations right, their cause becomes more legitimate and violence like this becomes more likely.

    I feel that people on all sides of the issue need to ****in chill out.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    No, if their weren't so many dumbasses within Islam, none of this would take place. You got it backwards.

    Exit question: How often did this sort of thing happen before 9/11?

    Seems to me that there is only one side that is actually killing people. That would be the, "Religion of Peace", BTW.

    Actually he is quite correct. Though, at the same, those people do need to calm down.

    Good thing all the dumbasses are Muslim and not Christian Americans running around the U.S. acting like ignorant fools burning books.

    Exit question: Why did al-Qaeda intensify its attacks on the U.S. after the U.S. wouldn't leave the Persian Gulf?

    and what about the morons who legitimize their actions and are quick to hold anybody but the actual perps responsible for them?
