In these dark days of Hope & Change, it’s not easy to find cheerful stories like this one:
Burning an American flag proved fatal for a Pakistani protester, who reportedly died from inhaling fumes from the ignited icon of independence.
Some 10,000 people rallied this week in Lahore, the capital of the Punjab province, to protest the movie trailer that Muslims say insults Islam, according to the International Herald-Tribune. One participant, identified as Abdullah Ismail, died after being taken to an area hospital. Witnesses said he had complained of feeling sick from the smoke from American flags burnt at the rally. …
“The U.S. must make a law against blasphemy — or we will not let the US consulates in Pakistan function,” a rally organizer told the paper.
That’s how backwards Pakistanis are; they think America under Mullah Obama is still a nation of laws.
