This article reflects my feelings on the book-burning story pretty well.
The whole incident began when the prisoners started “defiling” the Korans. Are any of the screaming lunatics in that country marching and shouting and burning things to have them punished for it?
Of course not.
I’m sick of kottowing to these nuts, and I stick by my previous assessment — that we should have spent no more than six months reducing the place to a smoldering ruin, then we should have taken what we needed to pay for our troubles and left.
“Winning hearts and minds” is nonsense.
