A thinking friend of the family who is career military is never going to be made to respect Islam, let alone the Koran, no matter how many classes are involved.
Bush really did us a huge disservice with his “peaceful, friendly Islam” nonsense in the wake of 9/11.
We are a proud military family, but I absolutely discourage all of our younger members now from joining the military. I wonder what the recruiting numbers are these days. I’m thinking it’s time to start having to weigh the consequences of disobeying illegal orders. I think we are at that point. The military takes an oath to uphold the constitution, not the president, not Eric Holder, not orders to kill and detain American citizens without due process. And this Bullsh!t about having to treat any scrap of Arabic writing with reverence just in case it is a Koranic verse is suicidal. It’s time for our cowardly senior military leadership to start standing up for what is right and stop just thinking of their careers. Yes-I called them cowards.
