And now, according to Think Progress, another “evangelical minister” in Tennessee also plans to burn a copy of the Koran on Saturday, videotape it, and put it on the web. These people don’t care anything about placing our troops lives in greater danger. Their main goal is to attract attention to themselves, make money, and make political gains.
It’s funny how Americans were subjected 24/7/365 to hearing “support the troops” during the years 2001-2009, but now, “support the troops” has become passe. This has led me to conclude that the phrase was used as a propaganda tool during these years, and that those who were pushing it didn’t really support our troops as much as they said they did. One doesn’t stop supporting our troops just because the party in control of Congress and the WH changes. I supported our troops then, and I support them now. Every one of them represents something precious to me, and I would do nothing that endangered their lives in any way.

Kind of like how we heard dissent was patriotism up until 1-20-2009. Now it is called racism simply because the dissent is directed at a criminally incompetent individual who happens to not be white. None of the people who were exhorting others to support the troops our burning the Koran, so that entire paragraph of your post is totally pointless.
It is time that we stop altering our foreign policy and walking on eggshells simply because adherents of an intolerant ideology that is stuck in the Dark Ages threaten murderous violence over every perceived slight, no matter how minor.
Rupert – What? We heard “dissent was patriotism” during the Bush-era? Were you living in some kind of alternate universe, or are you making up history? If you didn’t walk the line and agree that what we were doing was correct, we were accused of being anti-American. Now, Liberals are constantly called Communists or Nazis (of which I can’t wrap my head around the discrepancy), and we get people like you who are convinced the country is being ruined when it was the policies of the last eight years prior to Obama that got us into this mess.
Two wars, from a record surplus to a deficit, damaged foreign relations, a major banking crisis, corruption in federal agencies, and a surge in recruitment in extremist organizations: this happened under Bush, on his watch. So why don’t you take your ‘concerned citizen’ act and put it to better use finding the real criminals. Because they are located in the past, not the present.
