Muslims believe the Qur’an to be the verbal book of divine guidance and direction for mankind. Muslims also consider the original Arabic verbal text to be the final revelation of God.
Muslims regard the Qur’an as the main miracle of Muhammad, as proof of his prophethood, and as the culmination of a series of divine messages
Most Muslims treat paper copies of the Qur’an with veneration, ritually washing before reading the Qur’an. Worn out, torn, or errant (for example, pages out of order) Qur’ans are not discarded as wastepaper, but rather are left free to flow in a river, kept somewhere safe, burned, or buried in a remote location.
Based on tradition and a literal interpretation of sura 56:77–79: "That this is indeed a Qur’an Most Honourable, In a Book well-guarded, Which none shall touch but those who are clean.", many scholars opine that a Muslim perform wudu (ablution or a ritual cleansing with water) before touching a copy of the Qur’an, or mus'haf. This view has been contended by other scholars on the fact that, according to Arabic linguistic rules, this verse alludes to a fact and does not comprise an order.
Qur'an desecration means mishandling the Qur’an by defiling or dismembering it. Muslims believe they should always treat the book with reverence, and are forbidden, for instance, to pulp, recycle, or simply discard worn-out copies of the text. Respect for the written text of the Qur’an is an important element of religious faith by many Muslims. They believe that intentionally insulting the Qur’an is a form of blasphemy.

I also urge people to think about the enviornment our troops are in, where every person they come in contact with might be there to kill them.

So when our troops are being shot at by dozens of AQ or Iranian backed terrorist inside Iraq that the Iraqis do not want in their country its not good to bomb them?
I think your judgment is clouded by Arab cry babies and propaganda. You must have forgot the everyday Iraqis wanted our help and they know we only bomb what we have too.
I say let more bombs fly rather than to have my neighbors kid get killed because they wanted to save a stupid building that was occupied by terrorist only.

As they say in the West Bank, if you don't want your house destroyed, don't harbor terrorists.

There are those that say this is because we interfered with their affairs, but they are the ones that requested aid. They knew how our system worked, used against each other, then blamed us.
