Thread Name: BS: Burning Korans
Subject: RE: BS: Burning Korans
From a purely pragmatic point of view, the only things that Koran burning can accomplish are a)instill a smug "we showed 'em" attitude within the bosoms of the bookburners and b) provide an unbelievable PR boost to Quaeda, Taliban and all other Muslim America-haters, with a predictable response of increased violence against Americans abroad.
    Petraus, Clinton and many others have spoken out strongly against this proposed asct...to date, McCain, Palin, Boehner, McConnell, Bush, Cheney et al have not said a word.
