    I wonder how many held that same view when the media showed that Abu-grab-an-Arab(Abu Ghurayb/Abu Ghurayb) prison scandal photos. I did, however I have not seen any evidence that those photos really made a difference in troop deaths.

    Personally I do not think there is any reason for you all to care if he burns a koran. Do you care if in the middle east if they burn bibles,American flags and other things American find offensive? Probably not. heck if someone here in the US wanted to burn bibles and christian groups were pissed you and others might make a thread how they are a bunch of crybabies who need to shut the **** up.

    I agree. The muslims who are mad about this can **** off. They burn the American flag and find no issue with it ... so they have ZERO room to talk.

    What if they burned a stack of Korans, but there were no news cameras or reporters present?

    And how did 'Vincent" vote 57 times?

    if this were the state proposing to burn the koran, then i might find your comment valid

    but since this is the action of a private person who seeks to vent his misplaced anger in a misplaced manner, there is no rational fear of a fall

    It isn't them talking that is the problem. How very brave of these jerkwads to show how "tough" they are from halfway around the world. And then, to top it off, not even being willing to take responsibility for the American lives their stupidity is bound to cost.

    They do not care if they inflame us and I am pretty sure many Americans who are bitching about the pastor's plan of burning korans do not care if they inflame us. And I am pretty sure that a lot of those people bitching about the koran burnings supported the media when they decided to show the Abu Ghurayb prison abuse photos.
