Burn Baby, Burn
Been thinking about this Koran-burning story. I understand the fear expressed by Military leaders of violence turned toward our troops, and the potential that such an event in podunk USA could have on millions of Muslims around the world. Just the possibility of a Koran-burning party seems to have incited Muslims in many nations to hit the streets, burn American flags and threaten to kill us all.
Seems to me that this event has exposed the myth of the peace-loving Muslim that has been fed to us by Obama and the news media. From where I sit, the massive reaction of Muslims to an event that has not even happened, proves to me that the only way to placate members of this religion is to submit to their way.
Would the publisher of the Log Cabin print a front-page photo of me, with a headline that says "The smartest man in the world!" above my photo.... if I threatened to burn down their building with everyone inside if they didn't give in to my demand? Somehow, I don't think so. What if I burned down a different building ahead of time, just to prove I was a credible threat? Still... I doubt they would give-in to my demand. How is the reaction of our government and news media, who are demanding cancellation of the Koran-burning event any different?
I truly don't know the right answer, but somehow giving-in to these horrible people seems wrong.
