    would the US like it if the innocents that died in the Iraq invasion had killed by American terrorists on the headstones? just asking

    There is a difference between being controversial and being divisive.

    And how is it inflammatory?

    I wouldn't give 2 cents about it.

    You don't think any Muslims will be offended?

    Since it says "muslim terrorists" they shouldn't be. Unless of course they think of themselves as terrorists? In which case I could care less. Now if it had said "killed by Muslims" then I could see it as not being right. Fact is the boy was killed by muslim terrorists.

    Personally I think that it is sad when facts and truth are hidden, denied, and obscured just for the sake of not trying to offend a particular group.

    What if someone had an inscription that said "Murdered by a black drug-dealer"? You don't think that would offend black people who WEREN'T drug-dealers?

    I can't. This is important.

    If the black people are not drug-dealers then they shouldn't be offended. If they were drug-dealers then I don't care if they're offended or not.

    Fact is fact. Truth is truth. If you don't like it oh well. People need to grow thicker skins if they are offended by the truth.

    So the truth is to be considered gratuitous and inflammatory now?

    I empathize with the father, but that doesn't mean the city should put something so obnoxious on a memorial plaque.
    You mean the truth?
