The soldiers I've spoken to believe they are doing the right thing which makes them equally culpable imho. Nobody likes war and bloodshed but this world aint' ready for peace and love just yet. Would you suggest we disband the military altogether?
The soldiers I've spoken to? Some believe in it, some don't. Same as the rest of us.

No one has suggested disbanding the military altogether. However I'd suggest not using it carelessly in counterproductive ventures, for a start. Agreed?
Definately agreed.

It would seem to a logical person that those who assaulted this guy were the ones creating the "disturbance". Why weren't they arrested? This entire campus "police" department of goosestepping facist fucks ought to be fired.
I must have skipped over the part that mentioned he was assaulted.

Wouldn't it have been easier for you to just go back and read it again then?

Helpful hint: it involved words and phrases such as thrown down, handcuffed, dragged.

You can deny the accuracy of the report but you can't deny that the report exists.

Your meaning not entirely clear here.

Is it your contention that, relative to other countries, the United States appears to possess a sociology degree?

Novel theory to be sure ...

Forgive me for stating the bleeding obvious here, but freedom of expression is measured by tolerance of speeech which you fundamentally disagree with. The treatment of this protestor is an absolute disgrace. imho.

While everyne is decrying what happened as an infringement of his right to free speech, and violation of his civil rights, I have but one question... Was he on private land?

Your right to swing your fist ends where my nose begins! You come into my house and start speechifying against me and my beliefs, etc and you're gonna face dire consequences. Now, if he was on public land...

Free speech has its limits, whether you think so or not. The framers of our constitution tried to protect us against undue censorship, but their intent was not to allow anyone to say whatever he wanted, wherever he wanted. Maybe you do have the "right " to yell, "c***sucker" in the middle of a church service... That does not make it proper use of free speech. Perhaps you think you have the right to yell "fire" in a crowded theatre? The exercise of free speech comes with consequences, and great responsibility. I encourage anyone to practice it, but realize the responsibility and consequences there of...

I applaud the young Khan for standing his ground; however, I chock it up to the wrong execution of the right idea.

Flame on!
I don't disagree with your point, however if you paid attention to the article you probably would have answered some of your questions.
The Johnson Center of George Mason University is likely to be considered public property since it is a state funded school and open to the public (hence doing recruiting). I'm sure someone could make the case that it isn't but it would be very weak and likely to be disregarded.
Second, Khan was not yelling cocksucker or creating aa disturbance but was merely wearing a sign and distributing information to those that approached him for it (as I understand the article) so your examples do not apply in this instance.

His execution of his idea is appropriate as evidenced by the dismissal of the charges. The response he got was what was entirely inappropriate.
