This is the result of hate

Out of respect for the millions of soldiers who fought in two World Wars for our freedom, I waited until I posted this.

The War Against Terror has produced many many extreme idiots as well as those who want to profit from hate.

The snapping of Major Nidal Hasan was shocking enough. An Army Major who went off the rails, having spent years listening to the traumas of those forced to deploy in the questionable war of Afghanistan and the illegal war of Iraq.

This of course comes on the back of an Afghan trainee betraying UK soldiers. Little reported in the US because it really does call in to question the whole mission.

The President delivered an excellent response to the tragedy at Fort Hood. His comments were very much those of a statesman.

This story however shows why we may not be winning the battle of hearts and minds in Afghanistan.

TAMPA — Marine reservist Jasen Bruce was getting clothes out of the trunk of his car Monday evening when a bearded man in a robe approached him.

That man, a Greek Orthodox priest named Father Alexios Marakis, speaks little English and was lost, police said. He wanted directions.

What the priest got instead, police say, was a tire iron to the head. Then he was chased for three blocks and pinned to the ground — as the Marine kept a 911 operator on the phone, saying he had captured a terrorist.

Hate is the ultimate form of stupidity.

    There are two sides to every story. The young man indicated that the monk grabbed his crotch and made advances. Monks and priests have been known to sexually molest young men and children. This story is not so far fetched. Yes, he made a mistake in calling him a terrorist because the guy had on his monk robes and a beard. What if someone came up to you and grabbed your crotch in an underground parking ramp? No witnessess. Don’t be so quick to say it is a hate crime. Priests and monks have been known to lie and cover up their abuses.
