    If the commanders on the ground over there are following the same protocol that got the Fort Hood soldiers killed by Major Hasan, they don't know much.

    The Muslim "Culture" is not he ONLY Culture....they'll have to deal with it.
    I bet you're one of the first to talk about how hated Americans are throughout the world.

    You know why that is? It's because were known for expecting everyone to act like Americans.

I think you're reading into this to much. It's just a piece of cloth.



    Because genocide will solve all our problems... Are we going back to the manifest destiny days?
    Are you suggesting that all Muslims are assholes?

    Actually, I think we're hated so much, because there are so many intolerant dickheads in the world.

    No I'm not kidding. It's reasonable to respect people when you are on their territory - morally and practically.

    What do you think got those soldiers killed at Ft. Hood? They weren't sufficiently respectful to Major Hasan?
    We're trying to create a pro-western democracy in a stone-age part of the world. You don't do that by pissin on their cultural norms.
