Ofcourse desicrating a Qu'ran won't infuriate all the Muslims in Britain and the rest of the world, let alone the fundamentalists and make them hate us even more...
The moment those guys had the utter impundence to yell "I have rights" the snipers should have let loose.
Why should we lock these four (or more) guys away at a cost of 6 figures a year to the state when they were all too happy to maim and kill innocent civilians? I don't even think these guys are entitled to justice; and it wouldn't be the biggest injustice the world has ever scene if they were to be given a good kicking in Paddington Green.
On a thread discussing how we would punish the bombers, discussing how we would punish the bombers is not off topic.
You think we should commit acts of desecration as punishment. I disagree. How is that off topic?
