Ah, the “Religion of Peace” strikes again.
Radical Muslims have been on a rampage for the last three days after some copies of the Koran were accidentally burned this week.
Of course, Barack Obama wasted no time apologizing to the Afghans. From the official Afghani President Hamid Karzi’s website:
President Obama Apologizes to President and People of Afghanistan for the Quran Burning
Publish Date: Feb 23, 2012
February 23, 2012- US President, Barack Obama sent President Karzai a letter to apologize for the incident in which copies of the Holy Quran were burnt in Bagram military base.
In the official letter conveyed to the President this afternoon by Ryan Crocker, the US ambassador to Afghanistan, President Obama has written that the incident in their facility was not intentional and assured the President of full investigation.
President Obama writes, “I wish to express my deep regret for the reported incident. I extend to you and the Afghan people my sincere apologies.”
“The error was inadvertent; I assure you that we will take the appropriate steps to avoid any recurrence, to include holding accountable those responsible” the letter concludes.
Sarah Palin wants to know where Karzi’s apology is for the death of two of our finest. Posting on Facebook Thursday morning:
Obama apologizes for the inadvertent Koran burning this week; now the U.S. trained and protected Afghan Army can apologize for killing two of our soldiers yesterday.
As of this writing, a total of six people have been killed.
Diana West writes of an organized call for jihad against our troops in the Afghan Parliament:
The fury does not appear likely to abate soon. Members of Parliament called on Afghans to take up arms against the American military, and Western officials said they feared that conservative mullahs might incite more violence at the weekly Friday Prayer, when a large number of people worship at mosques.
“Americans are invaders, and jihad against Americans is an obligation,” said Abdul Sattar Khawasi, a member of Parliament from the Ghorband district in Parwan Province, where at least four demonstrators were killed in confrontations with the police on Wednesday.
Standing with about 20 other members of Parliament, Mr. Khawasi called on mullahs and religious leaders “to urge the people from the pulpit to wage jihad against Americans.”
These people loose their minds over the accidental burning of a book, while having no regard for human life. These are the same people whose Koran allows them to kill anyone who won’t convert to their religion.
Instead of apologizing for an accident, we should be going on the offense against these savages. A lot of blood and treasure has been wasted trying to free these people from the tyrannical grip of the Taliban, and this is how we are repaid? It’s sickening. And it’s time to get serious.
We have a weak president and a weak Congress. We need to replace both. Then we need neutralize our threat in Afghanistan, and leave.
I find it appalling that Obama found time to apologize for the Koran burning, but no time to man up and take it to Karzi and the Afghans for killing our troops.
