Free speech is free speech is free speech.

The AP: Pentagon chief endorses call to cancel Quran burn

The burning of symbols such as flags, books, and garb is one of the purest forms of free speech.

It is not to be regulated or stopped by any government action.

Aside from the fact that it's legal, it's a negative way to build support for your cause, by destroying symbols of that which you oppose, instead of doing something positive like building more symbols of what you support. People want to be positive, not negative.

Obviously, this is an action meant to create a reaction that will be so unequal as to draw further opposition to the target. Whether this course of action will be judged in hindsight to be worth it, will probably depend on the feelings of the headless torso that will likely result.

This is a grotesque publicity stunt by a syphilletic goober affiliated with the ass-sucking scum who picket soldiers' funerals.
The stupid Pakis, Afghans, Palis and Iraqis - and others - will riot and kill innocent people who get in their way out of sheer ignorance, emotion, malice, and hatred.
Newsweek magazine's bullshit fake Koran-burning story after 9/11 got a couple hundred people killed in India and Pakistan, mostly Christians.

No argument here.

But it seems their intent is to remind everyone that Muslims will riot and kill innocent people who get in their way out of sheer ignorance, emotion, malice, and hatred.
