Why Apologize to Afghanistan?
The reaction to an accidental Koran-burning was inexcusable.

We have officially lost our minds.

The New York Times reports that President Obama has sent a formal letter of apology to Afghanistan’s ingrate president, Hamid Karzai, for the burning of Korans at a U.S. military base. The only upside of the apology is that it appears (based on the Times account) to be couched as coming personally from our blindly Islamophilic president — “I wish to express my deep regret for the reported incident. . . . I extend to you and the Afghani people my sincere apologies.” It is not couched as an apology from the American people, whose frame of mind will be outrage, not contrition, as the facts become more widely known.

The facts are that the Korans were seized at a jail because jihadists imprisoned there were using them not for prayer but to communicate incendiary messages. The soldiers dispatched to burn refuse from the jail were not the officials who had seized the books, had no idea they were burning Korans, and tried desperately to retrieve the books when the situation was brought to their attention…

    It just gets better (via Iowahawk).

    What is more pathetic is Karzai’s request that the U.S. servicemen be punished.

    ael, HOLY CRAP. The spineless BASTARDS.

  5. Michael Lonie says:

    If the troops involved in this farce are arrested, let alone brought to trial, for this incident, every officer involved, from highest to lowest, should be retired immediately. Fly the soldiers out of the country, then tell the Afghans to put their protests where the sun doesn’t shine.

    As a 3rd Gen Vet, I will NOT let either of my boys enlist. ROEs that say you can’t return fire if your opponent drops his weapon? WTH!
    Unless they grow up to be idoits, then they can be JAG Prosecutors!

  7. I believe that the waste paper destined for the burning should have been used more productively!

    All we should have said was “why were these sacred Korans defaced by your pious people then?” And then a gracious “fuck off” should have followed. If they try to prosecute those poor guys I will have lost all faith and yeah, they are a bunch of pussies.

  9. Yojimbo says:

    Well pack your faith up for shipping then because NATO evidently is going to prosecute the “perpetrators” in open court according to the statement. No mention of Afghan or American court or the Hague or whatever.

    Shameful doesn’t even come close.

  10. major dad says:

    What are they going to charge them with? Following orders?

  11. Yojimbo says:

    Dunno,md. The joint statement by some Islamic gvoernment types in Afghanistan said that NATO had agreed to try them in open court.

    For your enemies on the homefront news. The Obama defense budget will call for massive increases in your medical insurance premiums. Fees for the first year range from 30 to 78 percent and between 94 and 345 percent in five years. Retired Army colonel now paying $460 could be paying $2,048 in five years. Me no linky, but the story is at

    Evidently, according to the story, they are trying to get y’all into ObamaCare.
