Posted on 03/02/2012 2:51:33 PM PST by Nachum
Kabul, Afghanistan Five American service members and an Afghan-American linguist were directly involved in the burning of Korans at a NATO base, an event a week ago that plunged Afghanistan into days of violent protests, according to the preliminary conclusions of a joint military investigation. All six will be referred to the proper U.S. authorities for further action, said an official familiar with the joint Afghan-American investigation into the Koran burnings, who was not authorized to speak about it publicly. Significantly, the five service members found responsible so far include military

why the shortened post?
WTF is the matter with the morons who made this America-hating scumbag Commander in Chief?!
Promotions, I hope!
I’d be banned for everything I want to say.
Were done here. Time to pack up...What a waste
They now read:
Soldiers Are Said to Face Punishment in Koran Burnings
Five American service members and an Afghan-American linguist may face disciplinary action in the burning of Korans at a NATO base, an event a week ago that plunged Afghanistan into days of violent protests, according to the preliminary conclusions of a joint military investigation...
This is a line in the sand
As per usual, the Times is front-running for the White Hut. Makes me physically ill. If our soldiers weren’t such fine human beings doing their duty, I would encourage a massive walk out on even the THOUGHT of any disciplinary action. I’m ready to raise HELL if tptb even think about charging them. Korans will burn nationwide in protest, for starters.
Punishment as defined by what provision of the UCMJ? Or has that been supplanted by sharia law?
“Id be banned for everything I want to say.”
So would I...
We should get out of Afghanistan, taking with us all of our troops and resources. We should also terminate all military and other assistance to that country.
Afghanistan will fall to the Taliban as soon as we leave and anyone with an ounce of intelligence knows it. We supported a corrupt government in ‘Nam, who couldn’t defeat the communists.
And we’re supporting a corrupt government now, in Afghanistan. The results will be the same. It’s time to leave.
Could we PLEASE stop acting like this was a CRIME. We are not under SHARIA LAW!!! They burned books, probably on orders.
Say “Don’t do that anymore” and get over with it. They killed our troops. Where is our government’s outrage over that!!!!
Just bomb the whole dam country and leave them to sweep up their rubble. Then tell them we will re-arrange the rubble if we ever have a problem with them again.
A little Islamic incrementalism, no more nighttime raids or following insurgents into private housing have been added to the long time turnover of all prisons demand. Notice there is no indication we won’t had over the servicemen identified. Like I said, time to remove this administration. Now.
I shorten my posts to get them up faster.
With more violence fostered by the Mohammedan Mullahs because a death sentience wasn’t immediately cared out against all six.
Note the language: Those responsible “should be put on trial and punished.” That’s from the Afghans. No presumption of innocence. Just a show trial and punishment.
I suspect. That’s exactly. What will happen.
Urged by the Puppeteer in Chief.
So, we're supposed to stone our own soldiers and release all the Muslim terrorists, according to this Ulema Council.
Does Barack Hussein Obama, PBUH, plan to throw the first stone?
But, then, in my world, we don't elect Presidents whose allegiance to his country is in question.
“WTF is the matter with the morons who made this America-hating scumbag Commander in Chief?!”
It’s probably the same morons who won’t vote for whomever is nominated at the coming Repub. Convention - seriously mentally deficient morons who are willing to see the country destroyed if the nominee doesn’t support their personal ideology.
I’ll bet there is a good chance this administration will turn these poor souls over to the Afghans for trial.
I’m sure the Times’ people are enjoying their cocktails over there on 8th Avenue tonight, celebrating the news. After all, they loathe the military.
At least they get a fair trial before being beheaded. Who says Alla isnt merciful?
By the weekend the NY Times will probably publish their names, their wives and children’s names, their home addresses and the children’s schools.
And speaking of leadership - Hell-O
the buck stops at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
“an event a week ago that plunged Afghanistan into days of violent protests,”
What doesn’t plunge the @sshats into violent protest? We need to turn this hellhole into a parking lot.
The Muslim prisoners are the ones who “desecrated” the da*& books and when the US Military attempted to dispose of them AFTER they had been desecrated, all the Muslims decide to get their hijabs in a knot and start rioting! Now, Karzai says that the Afghan government is demanding all prisoners be turned over to them? Hmmm - if I were a conspiracy type of person, I'd think that Bambi and Hamid cooked this whole idea up between the two of them so as release all the Taliban that we have captured!
Please tell me that this crap ISN’T REALLY HAPPENING!
The useless lawn lumps should really do some investigative reporting .... by starting with answering the question where would America be without its military/ where would the world be without that same military with a emphasis on global peace, stability and progress.
Better yet, let them pretend for a moment that Iran or surrogate supersedes.
Right down to the jakashes in the Vite Hause.
You're probably referring to the rank and file conservative who's increasingly unwilling to hold their nose and vote RINO. However, your disdain is misplaced. Look first to the party bosses when pulling out the knives. Top of that list is the GOPe.
But I bet you already know that.
Frankly, I think he already has.

NATO’s rules of engagement for Afghanistan state that soldiers are operating under the laws of the nations where they are ‘guests’.
You can find the ROE handbook for NATO online.
Everything, according to the ROE has to be OK’d by lawyers first.
Apparently the lawyers didn’t get their fees, and this act wasn’t approved by them.
There is absolutely NO reason we should have troops in Afghanistan, NATO is commanding them (unconstitutionally) and they won’t let us win under any circumstances.
“But, then, in my world, we don’t elect Presidents whose allegiance to his country is in question.”
His allegiance is not in question. It is pledged to the pedophile, frickin cult of islam.
“Ill bet there is a good chance this administration will turn these poor souls over to the Afghans for trial.”
The punishment in the US is nothing. In Iran, death.
If they try and have an appeasement trial— I think it is time for us to get our rear-ends to DC. This is unacceptable.
Most of the world is behaving foolishly. The whole world is practically promoting Islam. Nobody in the world wants to offend the barbaric, phoney outraged Muslims.
Cafe owner ordered to remove extractor fan because neighbor claimed ‘smell of frying bacon offends Muslims’. Police told the owner of a Christian café in England, that he is not allowed to display Bible verses because they breach public order laws.
Newsweek’s false report that a Quran had been desecrated at Guantánamo prison led to riots throughout the Muslim world. Mobs killed fifteen people, burned government buildings, and ransacked relief organizations.
A church in the U.S. saved and held fundraisers to afford the cost of buying and shipping Bibles in the Pashto and Dari language to an American sergeant in Afghanistan.
The Bibles were confiscated by military personnel, thrown away, and burned. Troops in war zones are required to “burn their trash,” reported a Defense Department spokesman in 2009 about the event that occurred a year before.
Central Command General Order No. 1 forbids “proselytizing of any faith, religion, or practice.” It is strongly enforced in predominantly Muslim areas out of fear that distributing religious material will be seen as an attempt by the U.S. to proselytize local people.
Military officials chose to burn the Bibles rather than send them back to the church, fearing the church would send them to another organization in Afghanistan.
Yet rather than express their concern and allow the church to find other uses for the Bibles, such as sending them to people outside of Afghanistan, officials destroyed the Bibles.
Here’s a burning question with an obvious answer: Would they have done that to Qurans?
It really is a shame all of those Korans were incinerated.
They make excellent toilet paper for the latrines.
This is outrageous!!
It’ll happen. And we’ll let it happen.
If the generals and admirals who “run things” were true warriors, they would all show support for these men. In fact, they should stand in the breech. But then, they would never get that appointment they covet so badly.
I ‘so’ totally agree with your remarks. I am ‘done’ hearing about and from all these sex addicts and their latest demands, ‘birth control’.
Rotten rules of engagement and now agreeing to put our beloved troops under sharia law during deployment is the height of irresponsibility. If Obama were in power when my father liberated Dachau he would have been turned over to the Germans by our own leadership to be charged with trespassing! Enough is enough.
If ANYTHING is done to the soldiers there will be blowback.
Why are Pakistanis throwing away 100s of Korans into sewage filled canal?
Anyone know of a cheap source for copies of this evil book,
the queeran? I’ve got a feeling I’m going to need to burn a bunch pretty soon.
(they burn better after being soaked in bacon grease)
They better f'ing not.
