Your self-effacement knows no bounds. ;)

They're not insurgents, to quibble a bit more with your language, merely looters. But yes, Hama did almost certainly want to make a point about flag burning, and yes, the looters were a stand-in (though straw man, again to quibble, implies that the character of a flag-burning protester is constructed artificially in order to make Roadblock's point, when in fact it's almost certain that such a character would be an indispensable part of any anti-US action, even if it is just simple looting). No, Roadblock is not right to threaten "pink mist" violence, but as I detailed above in my first comment on the post, it's understandable that he feels the way he does, and it's not necessarily from a surfeit of jingoism.
