    I'm thinking those soldiers did as they were told. Maybe their orders were vague or misguided, but somebody higher up made the call to dispose of the Koransand didn't think it through. JMO, I hope those guys are not going to be the scapegoats for poor leadership or management on the part of their superiors.

    There has to be some sort of standing order to not desecrate religious items, if there isn't there should be. This whole thing was an exercise in stupidity, everyone involved is just stupid.

    So how do we stop these protests? A little show of force such as a bomb dropped right in middle of the crowd would defiantly discourage future violence and protests….. Just saying

    What's really stupid is the fact that the U.S. government has spent more time talking about how terrible it was to accidentally burn some freaking books than they have talking about how terrible it is to not be able to trust our Afghan "partners", not to kill our soldiers.
