Skip to comments.Ask Me if I Care About ‘Mishandling’ of Koran

First, Newsweek pulled a Dan Rather on us, running a fabricated story just because they wanted it to be true. They told the world that an American guard at the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, detention center had ripped pages from a prisoners Koran and flushed it down a toilet. As a result, innocent people died when practitioners of Islam rioted in protest in Afghanistan.
Oops, said Newsweek , it seems we cant back up our story. Oh well, its probably true; we just cant prove it. (Isnt it convenient for Newsweek that the media now have Deep Throat to talk about so they can revel in their glory days and divert our attention from their criminal negligence.)
The lie heard round the world about the flushed Koran has caused convulsions in the Bush Administration and forced the Pentagon to launch an investigation of unfounded allegations contained in an unsubstantiated story. The results of said investigation are now in, and it seems there are at least five incidents of mishandling of the Koran at Gitmo.
Well, guess what? I DONT CARE!
Are we fighting a war on terror or arent we? Was it or was it not started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores on September 11, 2001? Were people from all over the world, mostly Americans, not brutally murdered that day, in downtown Manhattan, across the Potomac from our nations capitol and in a field in Pennsylvania? Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning death that day, or didnt they?
And Im supposed to care that a copy of the Koran was desecrated when an overworked American soldier kicked it or got it wet? Well, I dont. I dont care at all.
Ill start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and repents for incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11.
Ill care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere possession of which is a crime in Saudi Arabia.
Ill care when Abu Musab al-Zarqawi tells the world he is sorry for hacking off Nick Bergs head while Berg screamed through his gurgling, slashed throat.
Ill care when the cowardly so-called insurgents in Iraq come out and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion by hiding in mosques.
Ill care when the mindless zealots who blow themselves up in search of nirvana care about the innocent children within range of their suicide bombs.
Ill care when the American media stops pretending that their First Amendment liberties are somehow derived from international law instead of the United States Constitutions Bill of Rights.
Ill care when Clinton-appointed judges stop ordering my government to release photos of the abuses at Abu Ghraib, which are sure to set off the Islamic extremists just as Newsweeks lies did a few weeks ago.
In the meantime, when I hear a story about a brave marine roughing up an Iraqi terrorist to obtain information, know this: I dont care.
When I see a fuzzy photo of a pile of naked Iraqi prisoners who have been humiliated in what amounts to a college hazing incident, rest assured that I dont care.
When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not to move because he might be booby-trapped, you can take it to the bank that I dont care.
When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran paid for by my tax dollars, is complaining that his holy book is being mishandled, you can absolutely believe in your heart of hearts that I dont care.
And oh, by the way, Ive noticed that sometimes its spelled Koran and other times Quran. Well, Jimmy Crack Corn and you guessed it I dont care!
Racist!!!!!!!!!! :) HA! Just kidding!
When they can put the head back on one innocent they decapitated, I might start caring about the book of rants authored by a murdering pedophile.
Thanks for saying what we all want to say!
Fine article, thanks for posting it.
SEMPER FI AND GODSPEED!
Sounds like your give a damn's busted!
I know mine is.
seriously...does anyone of the dirtbags in the lib MSM get this upset when the scuzlims burn American flags???
oh, that's right- they fight for the right to burn our flag....silly me!
Maybe Senator Specter needs to read this--they just said on Fox that he is calling for hearings by the Judiciary Committee into the torture and mistreatment claims...
They said next week, and you KNOW who is on that committee, Kennedy and Levin, two of the biggest anti-american war screamers in the senate...seems like Spector must be paying back a "debt", huh?
If the Koran (Qaran, etc.) is motivating the 'slams to do the items listed above, it SHOULD BE DESTROYED!
Amen and BUMP!
Americans, by and large, couldn't care less about a freaking Koran --a book that represents a religion that most in this country finds abhorrent in the first place.
This whole thing is ridiculous.
Someone finally said it!
Actually, I do care -- I want the prisoner shot and the book flushed.
OH NO!!!! Their precious holie book is getting all torn and stuff.......:( Guess what? I don't care either.............
...and a hearty Oooh-Rah! to boot!
my sentiments exactly.
UH..RAH .... LOVE YA DUDE ... BEAT THEM UP AND TAKE NO PRISONERS.
Pinging! (Thought you all would like to see this.)
When they can put the head back on one innocent they decapitated, I might start caring about the book of rants
authored dictated by a murdering, illiterate pedophile to his brainwashed minions.
I don't care about the handling of the Koran either. But I do care about the liberal media making a big deal about it.
I think this pretty much sums up my attitude as well.
I haven't, and I don't know anybody who has, either.
Maybe I should get out more?
I think that's a keeper.
I'll drink to that.
Great post &10000 agree with you..Who gives 2 flying craps ..The same people who are upset by mishandling the Koran ane the same crowd who thinks people who follow religion are retarded.Well, can't have both sides of it >
I care when pulp fiction like the Koran can't be converted, at the last possible moment of its usefulness, into Charmin.
Thanks. Appreciate the editing.
Here's my 2 cents
If anyone purposefully "desecrated" a Koran to humiliate the thugs in Gitmo. I'm mildly irritated because it becomes fodder of the loony left.
If someone tore out a page rolled a stogie with pig dung and made them smoke it in order to save an American life, then I'm perfectly OK with it.
The loony left is going to be irritated no matter what, so let make it worthwhile.
Come to nY City , all the jerk offs here are ALL UPSET about the Koran and our troops "tourture" of prisoners at gitmo. Boy have my neighbors forgotten 9/11 FAST. I watched it live and smelled the bodies for days afterwards..Guess they forgot..I WONT >EVER I know who did it too ..I WONT forget that either..
My sentiments precisely.
An "I don't care" ping.:)
These Hindus don't seem to mind.
So the New Yorkers forgot already, huh? Pathetic.
