According to my friends in Iraq, this is much more common than anyone would want us to know- and infuriating. These IDIOTS are putting every American soldier in Fallujah and Iraq at large in even more danger.

This is more likely true. Yet there could be many who want it just afraid.. I would say don't do it.

This is twice I have seen the press link the Iraq to a religious war. I think if the report is true we need to end it today and take legal action on the people passing out the coins. It is bad enough to fight over terrorism, chemical warfare, and a world of other supposed issues, but never religion!
In today's world with nuclear weapons, dirty bombs, biological warfare, and terrorism in general, nobody but a fool or someone wanting to end humanity would allow something spiral into a war on religion.

Tricky, I think that is related to another issue not religion. It might help to have it added on to their code of Justice for religion. I am frustrated to see religion being used as a tool of war. In my time in the service I can not remember one case of religion being pushed on me. My tags and records listed me as NONE under the religion section. It might be good to go back to that period where freedom of religion included having a religion or not having a religion.

After rereading the post again, I have to wonder who is making the coins to be passed out in Iraq. I hate to sound like a conspiracy nut, but the production of coins is something which will cost enough to be traced. I would love to know what group is pushing this. I can see how religions on both sides could use this as a “circle the wagons” call to arms issue. In the Muslim sector it would surely cause a stir, while in the Christian sector with world wide dropping membership it might pull what believers they have back into the flock, and appeal to new extreme converts looking for a mark to make in their lives.
I think if it is true a concerted effort needs to be made to find the base and cut it off at the roots, as well as expose those involved.
