    Seems we only need our Flag to fight a war. Was it made in China? I wonder:D

    Burning an American flag proved fatal for a Pakistani protester, who reportedly died from inhaling fumes from the ignited icon of independence.

    It's B.S. It's impossible to be overcome, not to mention die, outdoors from fumes generated by something as benign as a fabric made from a petro-chemical. If it was true there would be radical SDS scum littering the streets during the 60's and 70's. Too bad.

    Who's to say what this particular "flag" was made from is the thing. These guys don't have the real deal and make their own US flags from whatever materials at hand. What do they use to color the flags for instance.

    Have you ever heard of dry drowning? I don't know if the claim is true or not. But he could have had an asthma attack or he could have inhaled flame which would have caused his esophagus to swell, cutting off his airway or even damage his lungs.

    Maybe if we make american flags out of hemp the only thing that will be in danger after a flag burning are the twinkies and oreos at the quick-e-mart.
