Quran-Burning Pastor Addresses The Threat He Poses to U.S. Troops (VIDEO)

General David Petraeus has said that if a tiny church in Florida goes through with its plans to burn Qurans on the anniversary of 9/11 it will endanger U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

Wayne Sapp, a pastor at the church, was asked about this during his appearance on 'Hardball With Chris Matthews' (weekdays, 5 PM ET on MSNBC.)

After Matthews had Sapp establish that he is now is carrying a gun for protection, he posed this question:

"If you think you face firepower coming at you, what do you think is going to happen to the American soldiers after this picture of the burning of the Quran goes world-wide?"

'They are prepared to respond in the way they are prepared to respond right now," Sapp argued. "They know they are facing a radical element of Islam. That's why they are there."

Someone should stand across the street from where the burning is to be held, with a stack of king james bibles and a sign that says "For every quran you burn, we'll burn a copy of the king james." Maybe that would stop them...
