(sorry it's not a clicky, don't know how to do it)

Do you think it will cause us to lose? Will Obama really pull all troops completely out of Afghanistan, as he has said already? Or will he up the numbers deployed now? Honestly, this scares the hell out of me, hubby deploys back to Afghanistan again later this year.

  • I agree time will tell. He should not be doing that but I really don't understand rioting, looting, dressing as women and blowing up a bunch of other people because someone burned a book, even a holy book. Unbeliveable.

  • In the Army here. IMO not much will be done in Iraq about that idiot. But we may need to use our guard to break up any fighting that happens in Gainsville.

  • mom.

    That crazy Terry Jones in Gainesville supposedly did It is amazing to me that anyone gives him any press space or attention. If we all just ignored him, he'd go away

  • Think about this...one guy in Florida burns a Koran and people riot in Afghanistan. I see the connection when you want to use obscure US actions to foment the radical element in a country that liberals want to exploit to cause chaos. What benefits from chaos anywhere in a country?...anarchists...so my next thought is who, what and where is spreading this information...and why.

  • In my community someone burned a Bible the Christians didn't riot and freak out.  The 9 dead are only dead because of the violent actions of others.  The guy burning a holy book didn't make anyone do anything.  They made a choice to behave like animals.
