KABUL—The top U.S. commander in Afghanistan said the planned burning of Qurans on Sept. 11 by a small Florida church could put the lives of American troops in danger and damage the war effort.
Put our troops in danger? what the hell does this spit-and polish chair polisher think the troops are in now? I would love to hear him explain how burning a book that foments violence will "damage" the war effort. What will it do, make the war more warlike?
We watch almost daily as spittle-dribbling ragheads burn American flags everywhere in the Muslim world. OK, for every flag they burn, we burn a Quran. Insult for insult. Senseless, but something they may understand.
Gen. David Petraeus also said:
The Taliban would exploit the demonstration for propaganda purposes, drumming up anger toward the U.S. and making it harder for allied troops to carry out their mission of protecting Afghan civilians.
Protecting Afghan civilians is their mission?
What a crock of mealy-mouthed BS. Their mission was to get Osama. If that is no longer their mission in Afghanistan, then get them the hell out, and then we won't have to worry about a bunch of 12th century throwbacks foaming at the mouth.
The Arabs, the Muslims, the Semites... they don't want us on their "sacred" soil. OK, let's get off it. Leave them to their own devices. Leave them alone to go their merry goat-humping ways. But let them know that if they keep messing with us, we will blow them back to the stone age.
