It is possible that American troops could be put on trial for burning the Koran in Afghanistan? The whole notion simply boggles the mind. Let’s not even get into any issues of Islam and terrorism for a moment.
What we know of the case is that the soldiers who burned the Korans and other Muslim religious materials did not know what they were burning because the matierals were written in languages they did not speak.
This was not a deliberate act so you would think the matter would be quickly closed. Not so.
From CNS News:
The U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan has not ruled out military proceedings against U.S. troops involved in the disposal of Qurans by burning them.
"If there are to be proceedings, they are going to be U.S. proceedings under the UCMJ (Uniform Code of Military Justice) -- and I don't think there is any question or doubt on the part of the Afghan government that that is exactly how it's going to go," Ryan Crocker told Fox News Wednesday night.
Fox anchor Bret Baier had asked Crocker if Afghan President Hamid Karzai's call for a public trial had raised some eyebrows at the U.S. Embassy.
It may not have raised eyebrows at the Embassy but every American soldier in Afghanistan and in other places is thinking about it.
This is such a monumental breach of faith with the members of the American military, it simply staggers the mind.
Six American service members have now been killed since this wave of violence began. Afghanistan is not worth it.
The only purpose our troops serve in Afghanistan is to protect America from terrorist attacks. Their job is not to build a nation or as Obama seems to think, be a target for the terrorists.
We have a problem with liberals control American policy. We lose wars and Americans die needlessly. In the case of Afghanistan, Obama will not let our troops win. He cannot figure out how to lose without getting blamed so Americans continue to die in that worthless hellhole for no good reason.
This will come as a shock to the Party of Treason, but the purpose of our military is to go in harm’s way and come back victorious.
The deaths of American soldiers are on Obama’s head. It is his fault.
The lesson from Afghanistan should be that we never ever have an un-American liberal as commander in chief again.
Paul, I totally agree and also thank you for your service to our country.
Paul, you mention the "New World Order." Google Agenda 21. This will scare you.
Thanks Joel, I've been reading on Agenda 21. The leaders of the NWO may be well-dressed and sweet smelling on the outside but they are vile snakes on the inside. There is no end to what the NWO folks will do to America as long as the bulk of American people remain sleepy eyed and indifferent. If the American people do not rise up en masse and absolutely enforce our Constitutional rights then eventually the America we once knew will be carved up and given away and the dream of our founders for a free and self-governing people will be tossed into the dust bin of history as a failed experiment.
too bad general patton was not in afghanistan he would know how to stop all the protests and most likely bring in truck loads of korans and have a huge barbecue. i guarantee that the taliban would fear patton.
soldiers should rebel, and leave afganistan. the govt. could not incarcerate the military if it stages a coup. to put soldiers in prison for this nonsense is beyond the pale.
Does Karzai intend to hold public trials for those who murdured our troops? Of course not. This ten horn dictator is only interested in getting money from us while still looking out for his own interest. He should remember he is in power because of the U.S.. We should do one of two things; fight a real war or get the hell out. These political wars are useless, cost American lives and money, and achieve nothing. Leave the region now, and if there is a future threat from that region then defend our soil. Let Afghanistan revert to the tribal war lords they were and still continue to want. We will never win this conflict playing political correctness.
Obama should be put on trial for high treason against our country, not our troops!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
May we with God's help keep our military out of needless harms way.
This is no different than some of the incidents that took place in Viet Nam when some troops came under fire at a small village in the area know as the DMZ. Fighting ensued and soldiers were killed and civilians were kind, even some women and children. It was called the Me Li massacre. To make a long story short. The soldiers were on patrol and attacked near the village as they approached the village young children were approaching the forces and had hidden hand grenades on their person. The women and elderly were hiding captured Clamor mines waiting to set them off as the solid figures passed.
Well if you are old enough you know the story. Persecution began and some convictions were handed down, soldiers went to jail trying to save their lives and their buddies. (Johnson was the President at the time).
Know we have a situation of a simple book being defaced by captured Al Qaeda and Taliban. Captured on the field of battle and incarcerated. Being released due to the prison being shut down there was clean up to be done and this is where the problem starts. What to do with the Quran that have been written in. The inmates were exchanging messages with each other and out side sources(defacing the holy book by their out omission).The soldiers delegated to clean up were directed to destroy these books by their superiors and are know being left out their to dry. Facing prosecution and possible prison sentences.(Obama is the President today.) Soldiers have been murdered and the President is apologizing. What the hell have we become?
We have become "Liberal".
America by way of the Republitard Party and the G.O.P. has been catering to the Looney Left since at least the time of The "Me Li" Incident.
The Liberal, Looney Left has had Their way basically for the last fifty years and that is part and parcel to the "Mess" America finds Itself in This very Day, as We speak.
And the so called Republican Party, i.e. Our "Conservative" (joke) G.O.P. is the catalyst to many of the achievements of the Looney Left to include These horrendously sad last three years.
Welcome to AmeriKa.
