Regardless of how you feel about a particular nation or a particular issue, a flag should never be burned or desecrated in any way.. Where the people doing the burning belong to that nation, is, in my own view, a disgusting betrayal of their country... Sorry, no justification, (purely my own viewpoint).

America has freedom of speech. You have EVERY RIGHT to burn the flag.

However, I reserve the right to punch you in the face if I see you burning it.

When I see foreigners burning the American flag, it doesn't bother me at all. It has no meaning to them, other than being a symbol of the hated enemy. But there's something sickening on a deep level about an American who would burn our flag. I don't consider myself exceptionally proud to be an American, but I do consider myself LUCKY to have been born here. There were far, far worse places I could have popped out.

So yes, you should be allowed to burn the American flag. It shows those who are glad to be Americans how much of a fool you really are for future reference.
