If you were in WWII, Korea, or Vietnam, you would have looked just as srcead.Have you ever been in combat? Do you know what it is like to realize that people are shooting at you and trying to kill you? The battlefield in Afghanistan is no less deadly, maybe more deadly, than the battlefield in WWII.
The Troops responsible should be facing a Court Martial, as those in the Military have no business acting this way. As someone who is a Vet I find this sort of thing inexcusable.
Holy book they need to respect that.
But for that to kill??
They burn the American flag - Is that OK?
They kill and burn women and children -– Is that OK??
What other people do things like that??
Bush decided to attack and destroy Afganistan even though the people of Afganistan did nothing to us. binladin was not even from Afganistan and bush had no idea (and said later he didn't care) where he was. It is beyond reprehensible to destroy another's religious books. How would WE feel if they burned our Bible?–different when the shoe is on the other foot. We are occupying afganistan and have no right to inflict our beliefs on them. Time for our troops to return to the USA. No one wins a war–there are only losers!
Why do we want to stick around, after the burning of the Qumran at Bagram Airfield. It was a mistake but the Afghanistan the people will protest and in danger more Americans there. This people do not want us there, this one more reason they want us out, what ever gains the US made are gone for good, bring are troops back before it gets uncontrollable. I am a Viet Nam I first hand when the US government want to stick out no matter what, enough is enough!
yet I know when you work comes to no good lets leave with pride now!
Why don't we just get out of Afghanistan?
Who cares.Did they care when they attack us?No,what goes around comes around.Jim Thomas Phx.Az.
