Afghanistan Demands NATO Put Qur'an-Burners on Trial

And according to Karzai, NATO has agreed.

KABUL (Reuters) - Afghanistan wants NATO to put on public trial those who burned copies of the Koran at a NATO base, President Hamid Karzai's office said on Thursday, after a third day of bloody protests over the incident.

It said NATO had agreed to a trial, but that could not be immediately confirmed.

Karzai had earlier accused a U.S. officer of "ignorantly" burning copies of the Koran, in an incident that has deepened anti-Western sentiment in a country NATO is trying to stabilize before foreign combat troops leave by the end of 2014.

Demonstrations have drawn thousands of angry Afghans to the streets, chanting "Death to America!" amid violence that has killed 11 people including two U.S. service personnel.

"NATO officials, in response to a request for the trial and punishment of the perpetrators ... promised this crime will brought to court as soon as possible," Karzai's office said in a statement. (Read more.)

Burn your very own "virtual" copy of the Qur'an right here. You will feel better after the "BooK of Hate" goes up in flames.

Shakes head lets bring our soldeirs back home.

This could be and more then likely is a case of one person boxes the quran puts them away in a closet. He gets transfered wounded or killed. Then another soldier is ordered to clean out the closet and burn any papers.

However if that is not the case and
I'm sure most will disagree with me. But to be honest, if someone gave a order to knowingly burn those Qurans or someone knowingly burned them under their own initiative then the person or persons responsible should be disciplined. At the very least reduction in rank and forfit pay. At worse early discharge.

I mean thats just stupid that is beyond stupid it really is neglagence and derliction of duty.
Extreame incompetance

But either way as the case in PN proved they should not be tried under a Muslim judge.

I DEMAND, we put Islam on trial for crimes against humanity for the last 14 centuries and the over 270 million dead and still counting, as the victims of Islamic jihad, continue to pile up!

I'd LOVE to burn a stack of the jihadi training manuals, TWICE as high, as the World Trade Center!

Let's write to Congress (www.congress.org):

Dear Representative:

Qur'ans were used in Afghanistan as a means of communications by the enemy combatants. Those ciphers/communiques were intercepted, confiscated, and destroyed so the enemy combatants could never have access to them. But, because Sharia law forbids the burning of Qur'ans, our President is apologizing and promising to follow Sharia law instead of U.S. law. The same tactic is used when enemy combatants hold up in mosques, and are assured of a safe place from which to shoot at U.S. troops. The same tactic is used when human shields are used and killed, and the responsibility is placed on U.S. troops instead of those who use human shields and the U.S. pays blood money (prescribed by Sharia law) to the families of human shields, accomplices, and jihadists themselves. Our troops were used like this for ten years with their hands tied and the enemy combatants protected by Sharia law. This weakening and killing off of our troops was only used to procure Islamic democracies with Islamic Constitutions enforced by Sharia law. Now, President Obama has sent our troops to Africa to fight against the only opposition force to the genocidal jihad conquering the oil-rich countries of Africa. This outrageous and seditious waste of the lives and health of U.S. troops must stop.

As a member of the United States Congress, I am asking and expecting you to put an end to enforcement of Sharia law by U.S. troops, to redefine the parameters when fighting against Islamic enemy combatants, to place the responsibility for using human shields, mosques, and Qur'ans squarely on the shoulders of those who use them, and to prohibit and forbid U.S. troops from being subjected to Sharia law, officially or unofficially. Let U.S. troops only be used to support the U.S. Constitution, let them only answerable to U.S. law, and only deployed when the safety of U.S. citizens is in eminent jeopardy. Station U.S. troops at U.S. borders and stop them from being used as pawns in the Muslim Brotherhood's global jihad.

Simply ridiculous! What in the world is going on? Eleven irreplaceable lives lost as a result of a pack of lies? There is no single condemnation of the killings in the name of this religion. All the so called free world leaders are quick to apologize for this atrocities committed by freedom hating cultists called muslims. Islam is a religion of hatred,violence,deception and oppression, this is what is prescribed by its prophet and the koran. Any Muslim that says otherwise is simply following in his/her master's footsteps-and the name of the game is deception.

Let us leave Afghanistan and let them seld distruct> Let us return the country to the Taliban and get out. And then just maybe after the people of Afghanistan sink into the abys of Islamic Sharia the people will rise up and throw off the shackles of Islam forever. Untill then this stupid was is a lost cause.

We haved wasted enoght lices for these ungrateful people

Since Obama is the head of the Military, and since the buck stops at HIS desk for all things Military, perhaps it is HE who should turn himself over to Afghanistan to stand trial. It would, certainly, be no great loss for the United States.

We're turning soldiers over? This is ridiculous. We should tell them that they've already killed enough of our people over this and that if they don't stop we're packing up and leaving. Wait we should just get the hell out. Enough is enough already you lame spineless duck president Obama. Stand up for America or step down and take Billary with you at the same time..... screw the middle east as we can take care of ourselves and need to take care of our own back yard with all the social issues we have going on now. Wake up America....
