(Reuters) - Twelve people were killed on Friday in the bloodiest day yet in protests that have raged across Afghanistan over the desecration of copies of the Muslim holy book at a NATO military base with riot police and soldiers on high alert braced for more violence.
The burning of the Korans at the Bagram compound earlier this week has deepened public mistrust of NATO forces struggling to stabilize Afghanistan before foreign combat troops withdraw in 2014.
Hundreds of Afghans marched toward the palace of Afghan President Hamid Karzai in Kabul, while on the other side of the capital protesters hoisted the white flag of the Taliban.
Chanting "Death to America!" and "Long live Islam!," protesters also threw rocks at police in Kabul, while Afghan army helicopters circled above.

Obama’s black swan?
And to think we lost and still lose our American treasures for these animals.
Religion of peace bump.
May the heavens rain pork rinds upon these satanic sons of camels.
you know, I bet someone could make a killing selling “Burn your own Koran” kits, that would come with that book and a set of matches. Then again, you’d have to hide for the rest of your life too.
Afghan fanatics avenged the killing of two American soldiers by killing each other?
As usual, much muslim ado about absolutely nothing!!!
.50 cal has a distinct way of breaking up a riot....It should be used...
They don’t call ‘em Koranimals for nothing. They must really be riled up...they’re racking up a body count that makes a weekend in Chicago look good.
TMB - Typical Muslim Behavior. This continuous neocon nation building crap has been going on way too long and in my humble opinion, the entire population of the middle east save Israel is not worth one drop of American blood, never has been.
Trying to bring 7th century orcs into the modern civilized world does not work, and never will.
My heart breaks when I think of all the fine young people who have been killed or maimed in these conflicts.
Agree. This is conducted exactly like "Arab Spring".
> desecration of copies of the Muslim holy book at a NATO military base
It was not Americans who desecrated the Quran; it was Muslim prisoners who were using the margins of the Quran to send messages back and forth.
Writing in the Quran is the desecration.
A desecrated Quran is supposed to be destroyed by burning.
All the Americans did was to identify the desecrated holy books and process them in accordance with the Muslim rules for disposing of desecrated Qurans, i.e., burning.
Nuke that sh*thole to glass and be done with it. They`re animals.. rabid and implacable, and no longer deserving of our help.
Good, let them kill one another by the tens of hundreds of thousands.
bring the troops home, but before they leave, wipe out every damn raghead in sight, leave them something to really remember the US by.
12 killed is nothing to every big city in our country. We need a body count from every city in our country. Our military can at least carry a gun for self defense. Every liberal city should arm its citizens. Its a war of criminals against non violent truly peaceful citizens..
The answer is just a short flight from Pensacola away...
