Clearly, we are reading different sources. Try Google and “US military burning bibles in Afghanistan.”
My point was you claiming that they were of no use to any American citizen.
“...It was entirely a wrong act for our government to push for the destruction of these bibles...”
The “proper” thing would have been to send them back to where they came from and leave it at that.
Generals follow orders, if they want to stay generals (ask MacArthur - arguably one of the most popular military figures of his day - relieved of command by Democrat president Harry Truman). That’s a reality of life, unfortunately. To my mind, the burnings were intentional, to send a message - or multiple messages - to the moslem world, and to OUR people as well.
Just my thought on it.
The celebrate diversity crowd repeatedly say things like “Christian missionaries are ‘asking for it’ when they go over there and push their religion...”
Those lands were not always “muslim nations”. Why so “xenophobic”? Why so “nationalist”?
“...Those lands were not always muslim nations. ...”
Absolutely right. They were overrun by the muz, and the Chrisitian and Jewish populations put to the sword or forcibly converted.
I’m just pointing out that Petreus is/was simply following orders. And worried for his troops.
Any message that was being sent was coming from above him.
