Build a school,a hospital or a road. Dispose of tyrants,allow movies and soccer.Bleed and die for the stranger.
All of this is for naught when our alleged friends get in a tizzy about some morons desire to burn copies of the Quran.
My breaking point on this whole mess is the news of Gen. Petraeus speaking the truth that the planned Bar-B-Quran-acue on 11 September via the Florida based Dove World Outreach Center will provide images and sound bites for extremist consumption. Sadly the general misses the mark when he excludes the sad fact that everyday folks in Afghanistan and Iraq (and elsewhere) will be going fucking berserk.
There is any number of things that make this whole story a real pisser.
1. The ultra-devout Muslims and among this one has to count the extremist nutters there is a clear perception that a Quran in anything other than Arabic is crap.This is important since I doubt the Florida pastor is springing for non-translated Qurans.
2.Like it or not the USA still has free speech.There seems to be a lot of confusion regards the Bill of Rights lately.Be it building something or burning something or being of religion A,B,C, or Z meaning anything.
3. That daily good works can be so easily countered by an isolated act indicates that our good works have no real value.If this is so true,why the fuck are we bothering?
4.Islamic idiocy is bad ! Christian and Jewish idiocy isn’t ??? I don’t know but for me it’s like Forrest says. “Stupid is as stupid does.”
Some stuff from DoD to wrap your head around :
As of 9/3/2010 the official stats are as follows.
4,421 deaths. 31,929 wounded
1,161 dead and 7,819 wounded
My position as of 9/7/2010?
Burn the Qurans…fuck everyone.
Let’s get out of Iraq and Afghanistan,they don’t deserve another ounce of our service members blood,sweat and tears.
