No way should these soldiers be found guilty of anything. How about some command responsibility? Our great leaders can apologize their asses off and kowtow, now how about some general, or maybe even Panetta, saying "They're my troopers, so I'm responsible."

Agreed! Anyhow, did these korans not have terrorist messages included in the margins (in addition to the ones already present;)? Isn’t it considered blasphemy to add anything to a koran???

These soldiers report to a Commander-in-Chief; try him.

It can’t be “hate” if the perp is a Muslim, can it?

Promote them to officer status, give them the keys to a new Ford of their choice and two years of free gas.

5 American heroes. Promote them, honor them, give them medals.

Thanks God in heaven for men such as those, and to Hell with their detractors.

The general who ordered the Bibles burned a couple of years ago should also be punished then...

The officials said that the soldiers had misunderstood orders when they placed Qurans in the fire pit to be destroyed. They had just been ordered to remove them from the library, not burn them, they said.

Pretty unlikely. Or there would be some indication of what they were told to do with them or told to put them. If a superior did not provide such direction, he would be responsible for not providing it, not the soldiers simply implementing his unclear orders.

Would not be surprised if these soldiers were unaware these were Korans. I certainly wouldn't be able to tell a Koran from any other book written in this foreign script. In all likelihood these guys were just taking out the trash as instructed and all of a sudden are accused of being responsible for an American foreign policy disaster.

When we find out who they are I would like to spearhead a support group. I've never done anything like that, but I'm so enraged by this that I'm going to do some research into it. These soldiers need our support since they will probably get none from obama.

Unfortunately there’s been a continued effort to socialize the military over the years since tailhook. The latest BS is the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell repeal and the constant PC push and sensitivity training. We’re losing leaders and they are being replaced with program managers and I see it on a daily basis.

A leader would stand up for these soldiers, tell the Afghans to go to hell and rain hell on any crowd attempting to get to close in protest.

Program managers apologize, find a scapegoat and punish them to cover their own ass to make them look good.

How many Afghans were responsible for the murder of NATO /and or American troops? When the Afghans responsible for these deaths are held accountable for their bloody actions then —and not until then can I agree to any punishment of those responsible for the burning of the bloody Koran. When our Govt. ceases to save the freaking wild men from their own bloody system of Shariah Law — Of Islam then we will find peace.But this Administration celebrates the death of America and Americans.

If these five worked for me, I would not be able to give them medals for it, but I would do everything possible in terms of their evaluations and their assignments and free time to make their lives and their official records as nice as possible. It might not be enough to balance the political actions that will be taken against them, but it’s the least I could do.
