It is irresponsible for Mike Luckovich to portray our men and women in uniform to Al-Qaeda. Underwear on the head cannot be compared to losing ones head. I am sure someone in your town would pay good money to have underwear put onto their heads willingly. I doubt that you will find anyone to be decapitated. NO COMPARISON!!!!

Free Speech? Free speech like yelling fire in a crowded theatre. Should you put fuel onto the fire?, like yelling jihad in a world crowded with radical Muslims? Free speech is the first thing these people will take from you before cutting off your head.

That yelling fire in a theatre comparison is soo overused and not applicable here. Are you saying we shouldn’t use our freedom of speech because if we do we may lose the ability to have free speech?
