US soldiers in Afghan. taunt Taliban. Aren't they angry enough?
So, US soldiers who were in a gunfight with some Taliban soldiers burned two dead Taliban (they deem cremation to be sacreligious to the dead) and played over a loudspeaker "Now we know what kind of ladies you really are. . . " etc.
Also, there's a videotape of US soldies flushing a Qurun (Islamic holy book) down a toilet which again caused a riot in Afghanistan.
Can't we just kill the bad ones we find and move on to find more? What's with the trash talk and desecration? Why kill all the diplomatic efforts that we just did with the earthquake in Pakistan?

my first comment was going to be 'good - let them desecrate everything' but after putting a few secs of thought into it I understand your point. the thing i can think of is that we arent over there - they are seeing a lot horrible things going on that these people do and they have had to deal so many people who hate americans and hate them being there. plus they have had their fellow servicemen/americans killed by them so im sure its hard for them to not do some of this stuff.
jmo of course

Seems like Islamic believers just look for reasons to gat all worked up and bomb someone.......they need to quit believing that they have to do God's work for him and convert the world........likewise with the religious right.......it's obvious that war brings out the worst in people.......it has been proven time after time........so how about the believers of Islam, Christendom, et al show some tolerance and diplomacy.......let God sort it out in heaven........and quit listening to loud mouthed preachers.......
heck I could have any of you guys as neighbors and get along just fine........we just need to overlook each others faults.......
Sounds like our military is doing a poor job of training and/or screening if this is the kind of behaviour reflective of our forces........BUT........here is a chance for Islamic countries to show restraint and not go into a tirade of idiocy.......
Restraint by all of US can go a LONG way.........

Exactly. The US forces are doing dishonorable things, but it seems that our antagonists go beyond dishonor to ultimate malice. There's no right and wrong here, but why send our guys over there just to fight. War is supposed to have a purpose, be a means to an end, not simply a big fight.

ive been to afgan, and till u have spent the time there, dont judge them, you get to make your calls here, safe, not worrying about your next step, or going to sleep.. tension builds, ppl act out.. i dont think it is very good they did this, but ive done similar things when i was there.
