KABUL, Afghanistan – The top U.S. and NATO commander in Afghanistan warned Tuesday an American church's threat to burn copies of the Muslim holy book could endanger U.S. troops in the country and Americans worldwide.


Meanwhile, NATO reported the death of an American service member in an insurgent attack in southern Afghanistan on Tuesday.


The comments from Gen. David Petraeus followed a protest Monday by hundreds of Afghans over the plans by Gainesville, Florida-based Dove World Outreach Center — a small, evangelical Christian church that espouses anti-Islam philosophy — to burn copies of the Quran on church grounds to mark the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States that provoked the Afghan war.

"My concern is how this will be used as propoganda to recruit future terrorists for years to come."


I addressed that. If they are that close to the edge then they are not worth saving.

"Do they do that anymore?"


I wouldn't know, but dynamite does put out the fire.

The difference is that Bibles are burned quite frequently and you don't hear of that as a threat to our troops or our fellow Americans.

How does burning Bibles further endanger our troops?
