Yeah, but our foreign born, devout muslim, Impostor in Chief will undoubtedly stop this harassment of these poor souls. And then pigs will fly out of my a$$.

It’s time to publicly identify certain JAG prosecutors and COs as traitors and enemies. And let them know that they have been identified.

We not only need to take back our schools, government and states from the traitorous fascists; we also need to take back our military.

The Founders called them Tories, traitors to the cause of freedom.

"U.S. officials have said that the service members did not know what they were throwing into the burn pit and that the books were pulled out by Afghan workers before they were destroyed. President Barack Obama apologized to Afghan President Hamid Karzai for the incident.

Afghan officials, however, have claimed the burning was intentional, and it reinforced perceptions in the country that Americans are insensitive to the Afghans' religion and culture."

Glad to see Obozo has the Troop's 6.

Barry kills Osama, then show cases it, beats his chest and nothing. Don’t get me wrong I’m in love with that, but to spend any money going after some korans getting burned, bullship.

How about the young singer that just got gunned down with her father? What do ya bet nothing will happen there. Hey, at least we have our Vagina Monologues! crap...

Just destroying the military one step at a time.... the democrat-quisling party.

rules of engagement that encourage our troops to fight at a disadvantage.

criminal charges against troops engaged in urban warfare with same BS ROE.

fagafacation and homosexualization of the troops

multiple deployments in to combat zones

infiltration by muzzie traitors and PC flag officers overlooking and allowing this treason.

removal of any Christian affirmation by way of placing atheist, wiccans and muzzies on the same level as the Judeo-Christian chaplains.

what’s not to love about our military?

Don’t even bother trying to flame me either, MOS 0321. I’ve got the bad knees to prove it..hahahahaha

In a sane world they would be giving medals to those who did the best job of insulting that insane book. Are we ever going to get a leader who is willing to call Islam itself the enemy?

Can they? Do you know that? The flag? I have no idea. This said no criminal charges, admistrative punishment. I am thinking who I can call who will know. I know some soldiers but whether they would know I do not know. I also know a naval commander. I can ask him. You probably do know and I could wait for your reply. I am wondering.

For the record, this American is insensitive to their satanic religion and medieval culture.

I served proudly. But I will NEVER allow a child of mine to join our armed forces: to serve under the likes of General Casey who, having lost 13 soldiers to Political Correctness in the person of Major Hassan, lamented only that the mass murder at Ft Hood would hurt “diversity”; to serve, live, eat and bathe with overt sexual deviants; to be forced to listen to Orwellian lectures about homosexual “pride” month;to perhaps be persecuted for killing our enemies. No,the Democratic Party and the careerist officer class that bends its knee to them have destroyed the military. God help us.

We need to find out more about this and make sure it doesn’t happen.

This is out and out horse poop.

The bozos in the Pentagon have become a bunch of snot-nosed, politically correct children. America is lost. It’s over.

That’s a good idea. Gonna hunt down a copy of the evil book and burn on the 4th of July fire, video it and put on youtube. With fireworks

They might as well drop charges. The inept MFer’s can’t get a conviction against anyone these days

I served under Gen Casey. He is extremely intelligent and very hard working, but at his core, he is a political animal.
