Didn't find this in the search.

This guy started feeling woozy while burning an American Flag in Lahore, Pakistan.
He was taken to hospital where he later died.
Protesting is not without it's hazards.

No doubt the flag was made in China and included hazardous chemicals.

Oh, and, "Ha Ha!"

I will never thumbs up a death on any side. But wow karma, definitely got this guy. Spreading hate in the form of protest is still hate. Maybe he should have been trying to sit down and talk and not just burning flags.

BTW do they buy all these american flags to burn....we'd better not be giving them to 'em. I have never seen any Americans burn any Middle Eastern flags over here but of course we'd definitely have to buy them

There is a certain irony here that ....I'm sorry...made me laugh. I don't normally laugh at someone losing their life, but all things considered...I have to add this...

Somewhat serendipitous from a US point of view . . .

The family will try and sue the US because it was their flag, but it will end up that it was made by some 7-year-old in Taiwan using a sewing machine from Russia in a shack built by some nomadic desert tribe using thread from . . .

PAKISTAN.

Go figure

There's nothing about this article that determines he died from inhaling smoke. Just propaganda in my view.

The US has bombed innocent people in Pakistan ... multiple times.

And you people actually have it in you to laugh at a protester who died in his dissent?

Despicable.

There is a serious lack of details in this article. But that's about what you can expect from The Daily Fail. Or most any other western media outlets for that matter, but that's what they give us to work with.
He could've just blown a gasket for all we know.

That's the first thought that came to mind, I guess 14 centuries of inbreeding and poor education come with a price.

Before anyone says that's not fair, marrying your cousin (inbreeding) and denying education to girls are both common in the middle east.

Its interesting because we here in the West view a place like Pakistan as a backwards regime.

They seem to be perfectly free to protest.

Meanwhile, OWS-ers here in the US are getting arrested, tazed, beat up and chased off of public grounds.

Shows you how far the US has fallen.
