I didn't think we were at war with Muslims. Why is Petraeus so upset?

Apparently burning the quran can create so many murderous terrorists that it becomes a grave concern to national security, so it sure sounds like the Islamists are at war with us, or at the least, will go to war with us over almost anything.

Islam, the religion of peace.

I have stopped counting the many ways that we infidels can enrage average Muslims followers and religious leaders into calling for our heads, or the deaths of our children.

I wonder if maybe we ought to redefine our objective. If we're so concerned about what muslims would think...

Because he is a fine commander and concerned for the well being of his troops and the accomplishment of the mission.

He is also not an idiot.

So he suspects that non-terrorist Muslims will get violent with Americans over there ? We supposedly "freed" them and here he is worried that they'll turn on us on a dime.

Yup..glad we spend years, lives and money freeing those peaceful people that would stab us in the back in a heartbeat.

Of course he is. He's fighting an insurgency. Or did you not notice?

Not in a heartbeat. But after a deliberate provocation? Sure.
