This may not be politically correct, but if THEY can express themselves, so can I...


THEY burn our flag,

THEY burn Christian papers,

THEY burn puppets in effigy,

THEY call us ugly Americans,

THEY chant “death to America,

On them I think I’d like to pee…

 

Some young soldiers burn a Koran,

Now I understand it is not a good thing,

No religious book should be burned,

By someone because of what it says,

But no apologies should be put forth,

In my opinion with regards that country,

The jury has adjourned…

 

Bring our troops home,

Let them run their own country,

The Middle East has nuclear capability,

Let them wipe themselves out,

But don’t come crying to the US for help,

After they end with their neighbors the hostility…

to be open to the possibility this never happened. how do we know? were we there to witness? the media is owned by the political system which supports the military industrial complex and will use all and any means to instill fear and reaction to keep it alive, there is no profit in peace...think I'll turn the other cheek...and yes, we should leave their country

I agree. It's time to get out and let them self-destruct. Religious fervor never got anyone anywhere. When people start acting totally irrationally there's no negotiating that will work. We just need to leave them alone in their own suffering.

The problem is they won't stop with their neighbours.....they will then want the rest of the world. We need them to understand us as much as we need to understand them. It took centuries for this to take place, it will take time to find the balance.

try reading the koran and seeing its directives...we under obama creep closer and closer to the choice of embracing islam and the koran or death. its burnig justified absolutely nothing... much less an apology...a slap in the face for the grieving families of those us soldiers slaughtered

Bring our troops home,
Let them run their own country

We should have never even gone there. Ten years later, thousands of soldiers dead, billions of dollars spent, and for what?

Bring our troops home, indeed.
