Warning: political satire to follow…

For the record, I like Muslims as a whole.  I think that they have been misrepresented and misunderstood in many ways.  When I was deployed to Iraq I trained and fought with Muslim soldiers, many of whom would have laid down their life for me if it came to that.  However, every religion has a certain group of crazy people…these were the people we were fighting in Iraq.  Sadly, they don’t have much of a sense of humor.


Here is a long article I wrote about Islam for a freind’s blog a while back, take a look:

I am against book burning in whatever form it may take, be it goose stepping, jack booted thugs or a Florida Pastor looking to create a controversy. However, the recent Koran burning by Pastor Terry Jones and the reaction of protesters and militants in Afghanistan begs the question, did Muslims just prove Jones’ point? Are Muslims nothing but a bunch of savages?

Let me clear the air up front: Pastor Jones is an idiot. You remember him from when he announced International Burn a Koran Day back on the 9th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. It was only after President Obama and US Defense Secretary Gates interceded that he backed down. Now he’s back at it again, finally following through on his book burning promises. Personally, I think anyone who burns a book is a moron, and those who allow this distraction to consume their lives are even bigger dupes.

Documents were just released showing that billions of dollars of US bail-out money went to foreign banks, including Libya and we choose a Koran burning to get upset about?
