    Mike - Capitulation/subjigation caused by fear is precisely what these murderous scoundrels are after.

    Maybe if we'd offed a few people when our flag was burned things would be different. Or if Christians suddenly become like rabies-stricken, blood seeking animals when the Bible was desecrated or any other numerous insults were leveled at Christianity.

    Because he is the spark. He was asked not to by many people he should have had respect for. But he was so set on sticking it to someone that he couldn't help it. He has disrespected fellow Americans and he hides behind the protection of those he condemns. He should have had the balls to pull his stunt over there and taken the heat there. He is a coward and a fool. How's that for a reason?

    It only tends to give those cowardly murderous bastards justification for their despicable acts.

    Re: Pastor who burned Koran demands retribution

    I am sure the families of those whpo are dead would rather have their family member back. Nobody was asking anyone to stop doing their normal routine. He was asked specifically to stand down because the situation was dangerous and we had people in harms way. That isn't capitulation. That is common sense. What drove him so much he couldn't avoid this? Hate my friend Pure hate.

    Re: Pastor who burned Koran demands retribution

    What's the point of arguing that this guy is stupid, intolerant, and insensitive? the only people who are going to disagree with you are super extremist Christians and KKK... and i don't think we have much of those on this website.
    His actions are only a big deal because the Islams of the country decided to kill 12 innocent people because of it.
    It's not universally immoral to burn a Quran or a bible, while it is to kill innocent people and to try and silence free speech.

    they need to be taught about human rights, because now tolerating their immoral beliefs are clearly affecting us.

    The tactic of using crowds/protests by the enemy to mask (and or assist) in carrying out their political/military objectives would still be occurring with or without, the Pastor's recent legal activities.

    Are you forgetful about, the dozens of recent events that could be used as a "a chemical reaction" for kicking off these bat **** crazy protests??? Had the timing of, the Pastor event been different, we'd be hearing a different excuse in regards to their justification/reasoning for these events

    Get used to it...."Kill Team" story didn't seem to do jack**** to the Afghans much but torch a Koran copy and "Whoa, hold the Blackberry, somebody call Mustafa and grab the AK it's time to RAPE, PILLAGE and RIOT!".

    If he, or anyone else, knew that Muslims would react the way they did then we know he would not have done it. Would you agree? He simply underestimated Islamic hatreds, despite all the previous evidence that it was out there. You'll tun on this guy now and another when the next terror attack occurs. 9/11 was the result of American imperialism, Danny Pearl was a result of Israels policy towards the Palestinians, and so on. The democracies, out of the new fear, will always blame the democracies.

    He has disrespected fellow Americans and he hides behind the protection of those he condemns. He should have had the balls to pull his stunt over there and taken the heat there. He is a coward and a fool. How's that for a reason?
    No, my friend, you're describing yourself here. You should be defending this fellow's right to free speech in a free country no matter how foolish a person he might be. That is what the American people have inherited, and at a great cost to many who have fought for that right.

    Now that same free speech must be defended against murderous terrorists and tyrants, but the fools and cowards among us would turn him over to the terrorists the first chance they got. That is why they will win and you will lose.

    I am not arguing that ANY of them are rational. However, being irrational is not a crime in the United States. If it were, a lot of DP posters would be in a lot of trouble...

    I still disagree because the decision is being forced through with coercion (so it isn't really a choice). It's like if Qaddafi passed a law guaranteeing free speech but sent a death squad to kill anyone that said something he didn't approve of. Under such a system your right would be nothing more than an academic exercise

    people are allowed to hate, and free to express that hate publicly, either through speech or a symbolic act. In fact, I rather hate Nazis and the Klan, and see no reason I should feel ashamed for such, or owe anyone an apology.
