Bible Burnings Could Provoke Reprisals

The U.S. commander in Afghanistan on Monday criticized a Florida church's plan to burn copies of the Bible on September 11, warning the demonstration "could cause significant problems" for American troops overseas.

"It could endanger troops and it could endanger the overall effort in Afghanistan," Gen. David Petraeus said in a statement issued Monday.


OK, some of the details are wrong, but Bible *is* Latin for "book", and last time I looked, the Quran was a book.

Seriously -- you can immerse a crucifix in urine, and no one worries about "significant problems" from much of anyone.  You say you're going to burn a Quran, and members of the "Religion Of Peace" will kill our soldiers.

Give me a break.
