Qur'an burning in Afghanistan nets 5 military personnel disciplinary action

Even though it is agreed by both sides, American and Afghan, that the burning was inadvertent, sharia will be the order of the day, administered by our own American military command.  By punishing these 5 men for something that clearly was an accident, the precedent is set for more sharia-compliance by our leaders in the Pentagon.  This decision will not stop the violence and protests.  Weakness by the enemy of Islam is always seen as a victory, and validates the actions of Muslims to where more aggression is exhibited.

There will be more deaths and mayhem, all courtesy the religion of the perpetually insulted.

Official: Mistakes led to Afghan Quran burnings

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — At least five American military personnel could face a disciplinary review over the burning of Qurans at a U.S. base in Afghanistan as conflicting accounts of what happened emerged Saturday, fueling more confusion over the incident that sparked six days of deadly riots across the nation.
A Western official told The Associated Press that a joint investigation by senior Afghan and U.S. military officials has convinced them that although mistakes were made, there was no intent to desecrate the Qurans and other Islamic religious texts.
The official, who has knowledge of the investigation, said it could lead to a disciplinary review of at least five U.S. military personnel involved. The official did not elaborate and spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the case. It is unclear what such a review could recommend.
President Barack Obama and other U.S. officials have apologized and said the Feb. 20 burning at a burn pit at Bagram Air Field outside Kabul was an accident. But the apologies failed to quell the anger, although protests over the burnings have now ebbed.
The outward anger may have lessened a bit, but the fire of hatred inside for anything non-Muslim rages on.
