    There is no link since this is only a spoof that I made up to make a point.

    If you don't get what that point is you're not very bright.

    Umm, the point is that you replaced Koran burning with gay marriage?

    The implication of all of this is that we can't go about worrying about what some sand bathers think of us as a society under the duress that they might attack our troops.:eusa_whistle:

    I get it, but it's not at all clever or called for.:doubt:

    Thanks, but I disagree.

    I think it's at least a little bit clever and definitely called for, in light of all the dumbassery that's been on display in the other Patraeus thread.

    Yeah... I know this is a spoof, but I always thought Petraeus seemed a bit light in the loafers. "Not that there's anything wrong with that" as Seinfeld would say...

    Perhaps he's participating in "Don't Ask, don't tell". Just saying...

    Not quite "on point" since Koran-burning would be a direct affront, while gay marriage is just another of those Western ideas they don't like.

    Personally, I cherish the right to free speech no matter how offensive it may be or what it may be an "affront to."

    And the mere fact that this particular "affront" may indeed be met with a violent response is PRECISELY what MUST be addressed if Islam is to ever peacefully co-exist with Western culture.

    Fine, then the response should be dialog, not book burning. How does that improve anything, except to show that some here are as Nazi-like as Hamas?
