The Quran in Afghanistan is burned – so what! This is the bible of jihadist who want to wipe everyone off the face of the earth who won’t become believers of their Muslim religion. We spend billions rebuilding their roads, schools and protecting their people – and what thanks do we get for it? They continue to hate us.

I say, burn their poppy fields, get out of there pronto and never go back. And no more apologies! Let them solve their own problems – and that goes for the rest of all those Mideast counties that despise us, despite the billions of taxpayer dollars we have so graciously given them.

Enough is enough! If the factions in their countries want to riot and kill each other off, so be it. They are not our problem anymore. Let’s just defend our own shores and keep our capabilities strong to protect ourselves.
