    Re: Gingrich Slams Obama for Koran Apology

    I just think, as an atheist, while the world would be a better place without religion, not arguing that here, burning someone's holy book is not the way to convert someone to your religious dogma or lack there of in my case, and no one can honestly blame someone for being religious because that is the way they are born. My $.02.
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    Regardless of the posit that this was an attempt to destroy communications between prisoners, the reaction is important. Seemingly, the Muslim faith has a few that effect the whole when they react. I am hesitant to state (because I feel I am tolerant), but when people try to kill a cartoonist for drawing what he thinks....and kill others because they burned a damn bible (Qu'ran)...they are not worth my compassion.

    I see this as tantamount to crazy Christians killing a Doctor because he is affiliated with abortion...they all suck swollen donkey D!ck.

    an apology is tantamount to an admission of guilt.. and i'm sorry, but burning those korans was not wrong...
    the prisoners had already defiled those holy books ..this is something the president should have stated clearly and unequivocally.... he instead took the road of apologizing for our boys actions that were not wrong.
    The apology was warrented no matter how you look at it. The buring of the Quarn was simply retarded and most people in the military agree with me on that.

    Yup, if you don't agree with someone and want to change their beliefs, join DP , don't burn a Qu'ran.

    I think this should be our new site slogan

    you have no way of knowing how many people agree with you...and no, I don't believe it was warranted.
    DOD policy ( SOP) is to burn items .. especially paper.. that gets thrown out... and the President just apologized for his troops following SOP.

    if we don't want certain items to get burned, then there needs to be SOP that reflects as much... until that happens, then soldiers, by regulation, are going to burn stuff that gets tossed out...even consecrated Korans.

    it would be nice to see the Commander in Chief actually stand up for his troops .. other than paying lip service on memorial holidays.

    Out of curiousity...if Islamic Soldiers burned a Bible, would you feel better when they apologized?

    Do you really have any Idea, what this President has accomplished in this clusterf@ck we call a war? Obama did not start this mess, but has had to deal with it, after some silly Chimp in a suit decided it was a good idea. After many years of going between public enemy #1....and he really does not matter, Bush gave up. then our President Killed the bastard, and changed the Game by doing so. We don't need to invade you anymore, we'll just shoot you in the head...Republicans should appreciate this tactic, I know I do.

    Let's see, 5000 dead Americans Vs. 14 Dead Crazy F@cks......I think I know my choice

    wouldn't care if they did burn a bible... and if it's their SOP to burn stuff when they throw it away, i'd fully and completely understand.

    Obama hasn't killed anyone... ever.

    I'm not in the habit of taking credit away from the people who deal in death and heaping it on a temp worker sitting in a comfy office 10,000 miles away from the battlefield.
