"NEW" threat levels raised for troops?

Reader comment on item: Should We Blame a Florida Pastor for Deaths in Afghanistan?

It goes without saying that everbody has an opinion over the burning, but the question is; for what reason? Are they consistent? We live in a world filled with liars and hypocrites Are they consistently upset about ALL religious books burnt? Yes/NO? Of course, the chief liars and hypocrites would be the politicians who will raise their voices simply because they are politicians. (IMHO there is only one party and I have named it the "PP" The Pinnochio Party.)

Hypocrisy shows its colors when you say "we have freedom of religion... BUT" The 6 stooges from the Obama admin have gone on record shouting "you have freedom of/from religion, BUT, you have put troops in harms way". The proof of their hypocrisy is visible when a Bible is burned and you can hear crickets. Thus, this is not a religion issue at all.

As Pipes has written on, they use our Scriptures to wipe their tuchas, but where is the anger from politicians in that case? Do they say Muslims have a right to religion, but it could be inflammatory? I contend that would be far more inflammatory when a stain remains on a book we call holy then to see it become ash. So, to be politically correct the politicians must attack this issue from a different angle and say "our troops will be put in harms way". Do I understand this right? What are they over in the Middle East for? A picnic or a rock concert? Are their lives not already in "danger" or do we need a soldier threat level system?

We can call it "STL" and make quran burnings a level 1 while just being in a land where we are targets, a threat level 4. "Hey private-STL moved from 'they are trying to kill us' to 'they are REALLY trying to kill us'. Keep your eyes open because a dude burned a Quran in the USA". My question is, did we put the troops over there simply for show? Are they being restricted from killing these animals because there was no "real" threat until the Quran was burned? I propose the so-called "pastor" who likes to play with matches may have done Law Enforcement and the Military a great favor that they can use to their advantage. Cells will now rear their ugly heads.

The predators will react emotionally because of this burning and come out of their hiding places. To die for their god is not something they are considering on a day by day basis. For a politician to care less about a Bible burned, but grow a pair when a Quran is burned is hypocrisy. More and more it appears to me we have freedom as long as it complies with Sharia freedom.
