what is the motivation behind this book burning?
clearly people are not going to be compelled to convert from islam to jesusdom because of it.
perhaps the reputation of the US military / government to act immediately and violently in response to any violence towards her or her forces, has inspired this action?
burn a book = retaliation from stoopid extremists = retaliation from the far stronger US fighting forces = the war is perpetuated.
at the very least, this twat in FLA is getting a shed load of publicity.
or perhaps the hope is that any negative response from middle east whack-jobs would not be responded to?
a book burning is a trifling matter (as offensive as some might find it, we can simply dismiss them with "grow a helmet!"); but any retaliation due to it might also be dismissed as non-consequential;
i doubt obama would wish to resume a firing war, that was initiated due to a book burning in florida!! i think this is the true motivator; obama's non-action would be seen as a rally call from the right wing nutters, who will claim that any tit for tat was far too inadequate no matter what was done.
Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!
