The Times invites the world to believe the burning was a sole and spontaneous act of Americans.

"Muslim holy books that were burned in a pile of garbage at a U.S. military base in Afghanistan had been removed from a library at a nearby detention center because they contained extremist messages or inscriptions, a western military official said Tuesday.
The military official with knowledge of the incident said it appeared that the Korans and other Islamic readings were being used to fuel extremism, and that detainees at Parwan Detention Facility were writing on the documents to exchange extremist messages."...
$6 billion+ US taxpayer dollars a month are what we pay to have our soldiers murdered. The only war going on is by the US government against the American people.
