Burning Books

Americans are up in arms because an idiot in Florida wants to burn the Quran.  The media of course, turn this into a bigger deal than it deserves to be.  As far as I am concerned, if the media did not make a deal of this, nobody would know nor care. 

But in an amazing Orwellian moment, we are told that burning the Quran will put our soldiers in harms way and serve as a recruitment tool for Al Qaeda.  As if invading Afghanistan and Iraq is not the main reason our soldiers are in harms way.  And going to the middle east and shooting and bombing people does not serve as the ultimate recruitment tool for Al Qaeda.
