Ya know, I’ve had a few days to calm down & think about the whole situation which inspired President Obama to apologize to President of Afghanistan, Karzai, for the burning of 4 Korans used by Islamic militants to pass information among themselves. I’ve considered this from every angle – from the side of reverencing the Koran, which these particular Muslims did not since they felt no shame or guilt in desiccating these volumes with writing. I’ve considered their possible wish to “retaliate” as Ron Paul says, for the American presence inside their borders.
Obama’s apologies for accidental burning of 4 books = 3;
Islamic apologies for 18,500 attacks = 0
The repeated geeky “apologies” by cowardice Obama’s administration for the inadvertent “koran burning,” has been heavily criticized. Even Liberals on CNN had to debate it, at least. Not to mention, it hasn’t helped. We fail, time and time again to see that weakness emboldens them, while Obama was kissing bloody Taliban, Islamists butcher dozens. I am sure in their mindset we will all revere Islam much “better” now, right?
I just hope, someone in the WH Will leave from this Storm when it ends, knowing that this policy does more harm than good. to put it mildly. Looking back in retrospect, it actually made it worse. What if all of the governmental branches would ignore it, snub the protesters, would then, less than 39 people die in the course of a few days? …..MORE HERE
The political and military prostration to the Afghan people following the Koran-burning incident at Bagram served as the final straw for me; I once wholeheartedly supported the “war” in Afghanistan. Now, I don’t think Washington gives a hoot in hell for the troops they have sent to bleed and die in Afghanistan. So unless we can elect leaders who can formulate an effective counterterrorism strategy, I now say it’s time to bring the troops home.
As the Afghan police and army gun down our troops in numbers that now rival that of our enemies, the Obama administration thinks that WE are the ones that need to apologize. To them. And to top it all off, our military says that WE are the ones who require further sensitivity training.
At this point, “FUBAR” would be a compliment.
So how should America have responded to the burning of Korans used by detainees at Bagram Air Base you ask?
From my recent post at The US Report:
Military policy requires troops in combat zones to burn their trash. [...] In 2009, the military confiscated and burned unsolicited Bibles sent by a church to Afghanistan. In this case, the Bibles were intended for distribution, not for enemy intelligence purposes. Christians did not respond by rioting and shooting US troops, and neither the military nor our government apologized. The military simply burned them and stated that it was policy.
That is how exactly how the military should have handled the Koran incident. Once the burnings were reported, announce that prisoners were using them for intelligence, and we disposed of them as per policy. And let Muslims know that if they don’t want non-Muslims to destroy their Korans, then they shouldn’t desecrate them in the first place…….MORE HERE
HOW DARE HE!!!!!!!
How dare President Obama assume and declare to the world that what these folks did was somehow worse than the lives taken on 9/11 plus the thousands of car bombings and suicide detonations since that time in the USA and Europe. HOW DARE HE!
Ya know, I am really sick to death of the BS he perpetuates while supposedly representing ME!
You and I both know this list could go on and on and on and on and on ……….. and still many Americans sleep, or turn a blind eye. I cannot fathom this, but you and I know it is true.
What can we do to alert them?
Or must we wait until the sky really does fall?
Anyone else out there getting really ANGRY???
I don’t know about you, but I’ve had MORE than enough!
