Moreover, as there is ABSOLUTELY nothing in the UCMJ or US Statutes which in any way, prohibit the burning of a "Qur'an" (intentional or otherwise)--or make it a "crime" or "offense--there is but one conclusion for this travesty of "justice:" Islam/Sharia (whereby to defame, insult, denigrate the "holy" psyhotic, murdering, pedarast "prophet," the ROP, or its objects is to practice) is being considered as trumping our Constitution...all in the name of placating, being "subservient to," and ameliorating the Islamists in Afghanistan as well as around the world.
As a Nam Vet I am beyond INCENSED over this recommendation and if even ONE of these individuals are "punished" there should be such a backlash by all Vets, their family and friends, as to make our reaction, exposing and oppostion to John Kerry in 04, pale by comparison.
Sad how PC our military has become.
I agree with giving them supplemental courses....on 1) how to completely burn that trash so that no proof exists, and 2) how to shut up about it.
For our leaders, I suggest a course consisting of teaching them to say, “I don’t give a smelly septic Obama about whether or not your offended. Shove it up your Mohammed.”
Well. I think it is scandalous to burn a Koran. I think feeding them to pigs is much better!!
Oh come on.
Why would YOU be surprised that our FIRST MUSLIM PRESIDENT protects his HOLY QUARAN?
You do know he is the equivalent of a Muslim Terrorist, don’t you?
Could Americans be such fools that they don’t think anymore and let the PRESS do ALL of their thinking for them? What do you think Libya, Egypt and Israel is all about?
Those Men are welcome at my house for a nice cold one anytime
The rush to "justice" is disturbing, given the fact that Nadal Hasan's case has yet to go to trial.
That is an indictment of the current chain of command.
Sounds like another minor incident of WORKPLACE VIOLENCE!
Military instructor suspended over Islam course
(Reuters) - The instructor of a college course that taught top military officers the United States was at war with Islam has been relieved of teaching duties and the course ordered redesigned to reflect U.S. policy, a military spokesman said on Wednesday.
The elective course at the National Defense University's Joint Forces Staff College included a slide that asserted "the United States is at war with Islam and we ought to just recognize that we are war with Islam," Pentagon officials said in April as they launched a review of the course.
Colonel David Lapan, a spokesman for the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said on Wednesday a review of the course found that "institutional failures and in oversight and judgment" led to the course being modified over time in a way "that portrayed Islam almost entirely in a negative way."
READ IT ALL!
This Administration (and sadly, the previous on under the "Compassionate Conservative") have/had NO (serious) intentions of combating that which is responsible for 99.99% of all the Terrorist activities throughout the World; they (both Dear Leader and Boosh) flatly refused to identify who and what it is (Islam and it's "true believers") which has been at war against us since the founding of our Republic.
Seeing as the koran is such a filthy dirty hate filled book, it is unusable for even toilet paper. Burning is the only viable solution to ridding this planet of this devil worshiping hate cult.
Those who burned the koran, should be given Green awards for assisting in cleaning up the planet.
Remember this is simply the recommendation by the investigating officer. The commander of these Soldiers is the one who will make the final call. I imagine it won’t be much more than a slap on the wrist. Something like 24 hours confined to post, suspended for 48 hours.
I could not recommend anyone to serve in the military now. Ridiculous ROE’s that can get you killed, an overbearing PC culture, gay pride rubbish, and an overbearing bureaucracy.
The same punishment metted out for those that burned the thousands of Bibles, sent to our troops.
Clearly the same “laws” apply to both books,....right?
Discipline? WTF?? These heroes should be awarded medals and commendations.
If I were one of these troops, I would refuse the administrative punishment. That forces the command to either charge me under UCMJ or drop the action. When I was in the service in the ‘80s I did exactly that and the action was dropped.
Meanwhile the Pentagon is planning Gay Pride events.....
Consider how difficult it is now to be a service chief. On the one hand, your service has been your life. On the other hand, you have a POS, communist CinC who hates the military.
Freedom of speech!!!
Seems to me that this Administration is treating the different groups of those who serve differently. The military is treated differently than other branches.
When individuals in the Justice Department get caught in anything that can embarrass the leadership, they get rewarded by promotion or pension (to shut them up?). But those in the military, who also serve under this President, get punished.
