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.
Our troops in Afganastan are dieing for nothing and it is directly the fault of Obama.
This should surprise no one. This is the most divisive, unconstitutional, America hating administration in the world. As Commander in Chief it is Obama's responsibility to protect and defend our Constitution. To defend our military men and women. To maintain our place as exceptional in this s***-hole region of the world. These godless barbarians have no right to demand anyhting from us after all we've tried to do for them.
Barrack Hussein is showing his true colors and his true religious belief. No Christian in the world would apologize let alone condone putting these men on trial. Time to get out of this primitive waste-land. Let them rot in their own stench.
As far as Karzai is concerned,,,F**K YOU!
Afghanistan: The graveyard of empires.
This Is Treason!
Please please please! Let's start taking to the streets to demand we treat our soldiers with the respect and honor they deserve. And while we are at it let's demand that our Traitor in Chief be arrested and tried for HIGH TREASON!
"Probable cause" to believe that BHO's birth certificate and social security card are forgeries! If we can determine the truth, BHO won't have to resign!!! His fraudulent claim to US citizenship will negate his election and subsequent actions to reduce our nation to bankruptcy and Third World status.....
This came out today.
I BELONG TO ALIPAC AND I GOT WIND OF THIS TODAY, BUT ITS BEEN MENTIONED BEFORE AND I HAVE OTHER NEWS REGARDING THIS --- ITS TIME TO TAKE TO THE STREETS AND MARCH ON WASH.AND DEMAND THAT THIS DICTATOR BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE!
Treason. Impeach now.
I have never heard that word used by anyone who has the ability to start the proceedings!
I HAVE A SOLUTION TO THIS----SEND obama TO THE EXACT LOCATION WHERE ALL THE RIOTING AND PROTESTS ARE OCCURING AND LETS SEE HOW OUR DESPISED LEADER HANDLES THIS AND IF HARM SHOULD COME TO obama---SO BE IT.
IF AN APOLOGY FROM ME WILL HELP EASY THE TENSION FROM SENDING obama OVER THERE, THEN I WILL GLADLY APOLOGIZE FOR HAVING SENT THAT IDIOT TO TRY TO BEG FORGIVENESS FROM THOSE INFIDELS IN AFGHANISTAN.
Time to bring the troops home. Senseless to put our troops in harm's way, not to mention the money given to this country annually. It's time for new leadership; someone who cares for Americans and our values.
this is what someone said to me about this: "the US- Afghani exchange of notes (pseudo-SOFA) and even the ISAF SOFA do not allow any US soldiers to be subject to Afghani law. Even if someone at NATO said they were going to turn US soldiers over to the Afghans, their own ISAF mandate wouldn't allow it." Can anyone confirm whether this true or not true?
