    It's a messy situation. He's siayng Muslims are violent. He's burning a book. Then they react with violence. They are proving him right. I can't condone burning anyone's holy book, and I can't condone how this man is making his point. That's a disrespectful act that promotes nothing positive at all. But then, when a group reacts with violence to something as simple as drawing a cartoon, I have to wonder about them too. All Christians don't burn books, and all Muslims don't react violently to insults. It's those who to, that are causing all the problems. Christians need to condemn book burnings. Followers of Islam need to speak out against violence. Antagonizing and provoking back and forth is not going to produce any positive effect.

      Gee whiz mike, are you trying to be funny? Yes Obama does need to be replaced but not by Hilary Clinton, but by Rep. Ron Paul of Texas! These war pigs who run Washington are bankrupting this country. Never mind, they already did that long ago!!!!!!

        Ron Paul is not Presidential Material. Study your History. This is all very complex. Not Ron Paul, what a mistake

    SOF doesn't take over countries; you need infantry, shock-troops, etc... Just keep sitting on the couch and eating Doritos, they'll get the job done.

    Which country are these bozoes planning to conquer next, I wonder? If we would only spend one tenth of the same money on medical research, we might even conquer some horrific disease like cancer, ALS, MS, macular distrophy, Alzheimer's, etc. Such idiocy just goes on and on!
