Angry Afghans

So if you're a soldier, fighting a battle against the 2nd tier perpetrators of 9/11, and you've got a couple of dead Taliban on your hands, what do you do? Spend hours digging 6-foot deep graves with your E-tool? I don't think so.

They burned the bodies. And the headline?

Stench Prompted U.S. Troops to Burn Corpses
The desecration of Taliban dead prompts outrage in Afghanistan

Yes, those Afghans are angry, because bodies are only to be burned in hell, they say. Yes, those Afghans are angry, because the evil Americans have desecrated the dead. They're angry, and you know what? Maybe, if we step outside of our world and culture, we can understand why they're angry. What I can't understand is why I haven't seen these headlines:

Iraqi Insurgents Burn Corpses of American Contractors
The desecration of American dead prompts outrage in Afghanistan

Nearly 3000 Killed in 9/11 Attacks
Deaths of innocents prompt outrage in Afghanistan

19 Dead in Bombing of USS Cole
Cowardly attack prompts outrage in Afghanistan

241 Dead in Bombing of Marine Barracks
Unprovoked murder of Americans prompts outrage in Afghanistan

Daily Suicide Bombs in Jerusalem
Intentional self-burning of Muslims prompt outrage in Afghanistan

20 Dead in Bombing of Saudi's Khobar Towers
Bombing in Muslim-led nation prompts outrage in Afghanistan

258 Dead in Tanzania, Kenya Embassy Strikes
Outrage in Afghanistan as locals say the peaceful religion of Islam is being misrepresented

No, you'll never see those headlines, or any like them, and do you know why? Because Afghans aren't outraged at bodies being burned. They're outraged at Muslim bodies being burned.

I am so sick of these "outraged" Muslims. We're effing outraged, too! Who cares if they're outraged?

You must remember that under Islam the death of an infidel is the death of "nothing."

You must remember that under Islam the death of an apostate Muslim is the death of "nothing".

It is only the true believer in good standing who counts.
