Burning books.

I've always found burning books to be stupid and annoying. 

That said, it is a form of free speech and just as valid a protest as burning a flag.  Do I like it?  No. 

And you know what?  If it puts US troops in danger, tough.  They're fighting for our freedom, remember?  If we have to curtail our freedoms, even if those freedoms are repugnant to some of us, to protect them then we might as well give it all up.

Bear in mind, I doubt anyone is telling local Afghan leaders if people keep burning US flags and citizens in effigy that some soldier is going to bust a couple of caps in their ass so they better cool it.
