I'm surprised at the Kahn kerfuffle. Trump is being criticized on a rather silly basis.

The much-acclaimed Captain Kahn died for no good reason. He didn't "protect" anyone. Instead of taking cover like his comrades, he walked toward a suspected car-bomb for no good reason. A fatal mistake.

But he was awarded a Bronze Star medal--for a mistake. Why? Because he was a Muslim.

And, just in case you may not believe that he got a medal just because he was a Muslim.......we can show that out of ten Muslims killed in our recent wars--four got medals and since two were just accidental non-combat deaths, that means 50% of all Muslims that were killed received Bronze Star medals.

Dead white guys rarely get medals......and certainly not anywhere near 50% of them.

Stop it. Kahn is a hero and Trump is a national disgrace.

I don't know, dude. You are just as KIA from drowning in a latrine or getting it with a mortar round, but you do not get a "bronze /V" for an incidental death. However, mortar shrapnel hits you a Purple Heart, latrine slivers do not.

Bronze stars are handed out like lollipops to officers, but they lack the "V" device for valor. Paper cuts can and do get infected.

We absolutely do need this question answered.

How disgusting.

Khan was a American hero. Trump is a American idiot.

Officers AND MUSLIMS, apparently.

Paper cuts do not qualify one for a Bronze Star.

You must be thinking of the Purple Heart medal.....that's the one for being wounded.

There's no scum like a Trump scum. The horriblest scum known to mankind sort of scum, it just keeps on scumming far beyond the limits of normal scum. It doesn't know what propriety is, it simply scrapes on through the bottom of the barrel like it wasn't there and keeps scumming away.

The article doesn't support the OP.

From the article:

Captain Humayun Khan: Posthumous star of DNC
The Pakistani-American was 27 when a taxi loaded with explosives blew up at his compound on June 8 2004.
He ordered those around him to take cover as the taxi drove through the glass gates of the base in Baquba, Iraq.
Captain Khan had taken 10 steps forward when it exploded, killing him but not the others, whose lives he effectively saved.

You can bray and blather that all you'd like, but you have offered zero proof that it was because he was a Muslim.

You're really not very good at this.

Khan was awarded a Purple Heart posthumously.

AND........a Bronze Star. For bad judgement, it would seem--since there was no purpose in him failing to take cover and instead walking toward the car bomb.

It didn't PROTECT ANYONE, it just got him killed.

Anyone who insults fallen soldiers just to advance a bigoted political cause is not a real man.

I relish the rage you will feel when Trump is defeated. This is atrocious.

The swiftboating of Captain Kahn is in high gear.

The link clearly shows that a disproportionate number of Bronze Stars are being awarded to Muslims.......50% of the Dead Muslims are getting Bronze Stars.

That's incredible.......and yes, it IS proof.

The article you posted in the OP does not support your claim of "no purpose" or "bad judgement." It states clearly that Kahn died to save his soldiers. Why are you lying?

That would require reading comprehension and ignorant and bigoted people never resort to such undertakings, it could possibly burst the bubble that keep them afloat.

And it doesn't support your rather laughable claim.

I'd suggest dealing in reality that you can prove rather than fantasies that just make one look desperate.

Well, the car bomb was no longer a threat. :lol:

That's the rather emotional opinion of the Daily Mail writer, an embellishment.......NOT an official report.

Calling it laughable is no proof at all.

The only way you could legitimately challenge it is to show that dead white guys get Bronze Stars 50% of the time.

I don't have to prove anything about your post being laughable. It does that for me in that you haven't backed up your claim. It's up to you to prove your own contention. What you've done is simply make a claim and labeled that as 'proof'.

Incorrect. You seem unfamiliar with how to construct a cogent and supportable argument.

Eh. Not my problem.

Yup. There really is no low to which Trumpkins won't sink. Now they are attacking dead soldiers, because their parents became politically inconvenient for Trump.

Hopefully they try this mainstream, and the backlash is strong enough to get other GOP leaders to finally divest from this moral atrocity.

Whatever he may have did or not did is still more than you've done for this country, or no?
