I would burn the American flag as a white-hot branding iron - I would burn it into the hind quarter of every monster who could not or would not appreciate and respect the magic of the great land on which they stand.

I would haul in and bend over every terrorist and criminal and corrupt politician and every scumbag shovelling their filth on this great band of brothers and sisters - I would heat that mighty symbol - and as their flesh was crackling, I would sing unto them -

Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thru the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream:
Tis the star-spangled banner: O, long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
Flag draped from the roof of the Pentagon

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

O, thus be it ever when freemen shall stand,
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust"
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And then I would call upon the Spirits of the land to forge for me another brand. A brand so hot and strong and invisible that I might burn Old Glory into the sight of the visionless, the minds of the mindless, the thoughts of the thoughtless the cares of the careless and the hearts of the heartless.

No, I have never been to your blessed land, I have not been so fortunate. But from one whose country was taken by uniformned thugs that came as cowards in the night with their guns and lies and platitudes and their terror - I would happily burn that American flag into the hides of the low-life terror addicted thugs who now threaten with their visionless filth a grandeur they could never imagine, let alone understand or die for. Your ancestors watch over you, dear friends - Shine on.

that's a pretty slow burn.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.
