Will Obama hand over Koran-burning soldiers to Islamic court?
The US Report ^ | Feb. 29, 2012 | Chris Carter

Posted on 02/29/2012 8:44:11 PM PST by FatMax

An Afghan government website has reported that NATO officials have promised to bring the American soldiers responsible for burning the Koran to justice in an open trial.

The website of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan Government Media and Information Center (an official government site) states: "NATO officials promised to meet Afghan nation’s [sic] demand of bringing to justice, through an open trial, those responsible for the incident and it was agreed that the perpetrators of the crime be brought to justice as soon as possible."

If this is true, and we do not know yet if it is, handing over US servicemembers to a sharia court in Afghanistan could be one of the most unconscionable acts ever conducted by our government.

Obama reportedly sent a three-page letter to Afghan president Hamid Karzai, but the White House won't fully disclose the letter. A small portion of Obama's letter - suspiciously (and perhaps deliberately) ambiguous - is floating around stating "We will take the appropriate steps to avoid any recurrence, to include holding accountable those responsible."

What does the president mean, holding the soldiers accountable to military law? They didn't do anything wrong. If they did, show us what code they violated. Or does he mean sharia law? Desecrating the Koran, especially by non-Muslims could result in the death penalty. But American soldiers are held only to US law, not Islamic law. Besides, depending on what jurist you talk to, burning of Korans is entirely permissible if the books are damaged - which the Korans in question were, at the hands of Muslims.

Of course, the White House and Pentagon are not answering questions. But this is nothing new for the president who proclaims...

So much for upholding our nation’s separation of church and state. Islamic theocracy does not mean s*** to this nation.

Barack never complains when the Saudi government burns Bibles.

It sounds to me like the result is going to please absolutely nobody. NATO will carry on the trial, which no matter what happens the howling Islamists will denounce as bogus, while at the same time causing great grief to those who are being put on trial even if it ends up letting them walk.

All in the name of something that sounds like a snafu, not a planned or purposed confrontation to Islam.

If they don’t turn them over now, expect berserk rioting in Afghanistan. If they do turn them over, expect berserk rioting here (oh, also in Afghanistan where they do such rioting on a moments notice for any conceivable reason).

The U.S. government does that for them. Didn't General McChrystal order a huge number of Bibles a while back?

He wants the equivalent to the “Volkswagen (The Peoples’ Car), i.e the f*ckin’ VOLT and believes that babies are a “punishment” to girls who want to spread their legs wide open just for their own pleasure.....then have their babies born with their heads crowned and have their brains sucked out. But, hey! As long as the mother “feels good”, eh, Barack? And that their “tissue” doesn’t cost the STATE any money.

I don’t really expect them to hand anyone over. Likely try them in a military court there but beyond an article 15, I can’t see anything reasonable. Obama and his cronies aren’t reasonable in their hatred of the military so I don’t know. If they do anything like the article indicates, I will protest in the streets.

I would hope they aren’t stupid enough to hand our soldiers over to anybody.

Personally, I don’t think there should even be any kind of military court, either.

There have been at least 4 of our people murdered over this. That is 4 too many.

(I think I could protest a lot easier than I could riot :))

The US Gov’t is the most sharia-compliant organization in the world. It does more to promote deference to Islam and compliance with Muslim sensibilities than Osama Bin Laden ever hoped to achieve.

I predict that the Communist-In-Chief WILL state that he will turn over our military members for Afghan prosecution, to cause chaos, as he’s done so many times in the past. “Never let a crisis go to waste.” Will he go thru with it? I think that it’s doubtful, but it’s very possible.

Can someone please tell me the circumstance of how the Korans were burned. I have not seen any article that explains it. Did someone do it in protest, did they use them for firewood because they were cold? What the heck happened to cause all this?

Thanks.

"Can someone please tell me the circumstance of how the Korans were burned."

Why? Motive has nothing to do with it.

The American Flag and the Judeo-Christian Bible can be burned and trashed everywhere in the world, including the streets of our own cities.

If and when (HA!) the Mohammedans decide to accord US respect and tolerance them ~maybe~ we can show some modicum of restraint and not destroy their demonically inspired rag of a pseudo-religious text.

But frankly, even then I'd be inclined to preserve the psychotic ramblings of their prophet from hell only as a reference work under "Bad Examples."

Were I the CIC, I'd give these guys ARCOMs (or their service equivalent) along with a big "Attaboy!" Even more if they did it with extreme prejudice - which in this case would just be extreme good judgement.

General Sir Charles James Napier, GCB (10 August 1782 – 29 August 1853), was a general of the British Empire and the British Army's Commander-in-Chief in India, notable for conquering the Sindh Province in what is now Pakistan.

General Charles Napier when dealing with sutte, the Indian custom of burning a widow on her husband’s funeral pyre: “You say that it is your custom to burn widows. Very well. We also have a custom: when men burn a woman alive, we tie a rope around their necks and we hang them. Build your funeral pyre; beside it, my carpenters will build a gallows. You may follow your custom. And then we will follow ours.”

"the human mind is never better disposed to gratitude and attachment than when softened by fear." - General Charles Napier

Perhaps we need some new customs of our own when dealing with a few hundred troublemakers who incite others into a murderous frenzy.

So very happy I did NOT serve under this pagan and anti-American President. Just considering turning these soldiers over suggests we ought NOT have a single Military man -woman -or ? serving in Trashcanistan.The 0— are you listening congressman Jim Moron? can go to He__ . The Democrat in the White House claims his apologies have saved lives— I prefer what Congressman Allen West has said as much more reasoned and TRUE.

I don’t see the Islamo-Fascists apologizing for murdering thousands of Americans on 9/11. I don’t see the Islamo-Fascists apologizing for their collaboration with Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. I don’t see the Islamo-Fascists apologizing for the way they’ve slaughtered Jews, Coptic Christians, and Iraqi Catholics.

Puh-leeze.
