    Some religious material including Korans were taken from prisoners because they were suspected of using them to pass messages. They were thrown into the trash, trucked out to the fire pit and burned. Way to F it up fellas.

    BBC News - Nato apologises for Afghan Koran 'burning'

    This is Obamas Abu Ghraib moment. Lets see how the media covers it. :bluelaugh: Think the NY Times will give it 32 front pages?

    Please don't turn this into Koran bashing. You don't burn Bibles or anyone's religious books. Especially during a war and in country.

    Just bring the troops home, then they can burn/piss on/make paper-mache with korans all they want.

    Would there be an uproar if these were Bible's? I think not. I dare say the media would praise such an action.

    Because they were suspected of being used to pass messages I would have them boxed and remanded to .mil intelligence...where they could then be burned in secret. The big issue is that the situation was dealt with poorly, not the actions.

    Remember that no matter what the religion the book represents the value is in the faith, not the printed word. Unless it was a cleansing of ALL copies in that country then who bloody cares? Muslims get too damned uppity when it comes to burning the books. Yeesh.

    Well they get selectively uppity. It's a show of strength, kinda Al Sharpton style. Google "mosque attacked" and see how often they attack each others mosques or pilgrimages, never hear much about those.

    3. No religious discussion and/or material.

    Everyone has their own beliefs, whether they be extremely devout or belive in nothing at all. This community welcomes everyone, no matter their religion, race, sex, age, creed, marital status, or disability. Since this topic has very little to do with firearms and a great potential to offend others, it's best that we leave it alone.
