    I wonder if our government has a brain. It's under some sort of illusion that it can win hearts in minds in Afghanistan when there are more than 150,000 foreign troops in the country and we hit Pashtun tribesmen almost weekly through drone attacks and special operations raids. These people don't need any more excuses to kill foreigners.

    Obama put them at risk by upping the ante and more than doubling the number of American soldiers in the country. This is Obama's Vietnam.

    The good reverend performed a public service by drawing attention to the fact that fundamentalist Muslims don't respect Western customs and political institutions. As we've seen in Europe, as soon as they get the numbers they push for Sharia. It's created considerable unnecessary tension in Europe, and I don't want to see the same sort of discussions going on there here in America. If Muslims want to worship and build mosques here, they can knock themselves out. Just don't try to tell me how to live my life. If I want to burn your book, I reserve the right to do it.

    Re: Pastor who burned Koran demands retribution

    Many are confused about, the Taliban

    The one thing that is very clear you cannot "talk" to the most radical of your enemies!

    By the nature of the beast the Taliban cannot be reasoned with, they don't want our kind of peace, they are not for womens rights, education, a free market and overall equal rights, to them Islam is the only way and all of us that follow another path are wrong and must be destroyed.

    How can you sit down and work up any kind of workable peace with folks like that let alone a viable government?

    Lets step a little further...and back to my original premise regarding nation building (A-stan) We don't. We go in, kill those we want to kill and tell whatever leadership that survives or arises that the rules are simple... Play nice, don't **** with us and we'll leave you alone.

    Totally against putting a government in power and then propping it up.

    No, he just doesn't like anyone who is different from him in any way, whether it be religion, culture, sexual orientation, or whatever. Of course, there aren't very many people in the world who aren't different from this nutjob in one way or another.

A car, not caring about the right of way, comes speeding your way. Do you keep walking, because you have the right of way... getting hit in the process?

    Sometimes exercising your rights solely because you can is pretty stupid. Words and actions have consequences, even if the are a right or are legal.
    PeteEU, Sazerac, and Danahrea would want to charge the pedestrian with assult with a deadly weapon since he obviously took actions that were legal that resulted in the unfortunante consequences.

Technically, the Mafia Don is just as innocent as this hate mongering pastor.
    Oh you're ****ing kidding me.

    So we just need someone to state "You know, if someone is burning a flag it may just make me or someone else want to murder them" and then you know what, if someone burns a flag and someone kills someone due to it we can just arrest the guy that burned the flag for murder!

    I love your assbackwards way of making flag burning unconstitutional Dana. Breathtakingly deft.

    The pastor's actions and reasons for it were dumb and bigoted. That doesn't excuse grown men making their own decisions deciding that some guy half the world away burning some paper was worthy of KILLING twelve people. That is on those men and no one else.

    Yes, and we all know islamic radicals, who murder random people, are so inclusive

    Again, the fact that you have so much rage against a guy exercising his rights, as opposed to the people murdering random strangers, perplexes me

    Perhaps because you don't understand that I'm saying that Reverend Nutter isn't all that different from the Muslim radicals. Both are religious nutters.

    Perhaps, but one is well more extreme than the other. There's a large difference in burning a book and killing a bunch of people because someone burned a book.

    Not so large when you know that burning the book will result in murders.

    I'm sure Reverend Nutter thinks he is on the side of all that is right and holy, and the Muslim extremists are on the side of the devil, but there really is little difference between them.
