The commander of the international coalition in Afghanistan, General John Allen, promises a full investigation into reports that Nato personnel mishandled Islamic religious texts.
“Noble people of Afghanistan,” my @&$! The inhabitants of this Taliban-infested dump are our enemies. What sort of “noble” people shroud their women and girls in burqas; leave widows to starve rather than letting them work for a living; practice forced marriage, honor killing, and female genital mutilation; openly keep young boys as catamites; and use their land as a breeding ground for jihadi terrorists?
How often were we told that the presence of the US military would put a stop to these evils?

Yes, well while we worry about whatever pervert might be offended by whatever, our military is groveling in the dirt to professionally-offended muslims in AwfGONEuustin.
This sickening Pat Condell look-alike is apologizing to illiterate muslims bc someone burned a copy of their hate-book.
General Allen has disgraced his country, himself and everyone who was ever forced to apologize on film at the point of a gun.
Wasn’t there a time when generals chewed on cigars, spoke about 3 words a week and had rioting vermin hung as enemy insurrectionists?
I sincerely hope that at the very least, Allen has to someday explain this video to his adult kids.
There has never been a more obvious canary-in-a-coalmine harbinger of American decline than this video. (but that’s probably not true)
“We, at Stand Up America Now want to express our support for the U.S. military’s action in the burning of the Korans. The Koran is a book void of human and civil rights. It is a book that promotes the murdering of non-Muslims and anyone who would speak out to criticize Islam. The burning of Korans is an appropriate action for a book of this nature.” Terry Jones, February 21, 2012
Very interesting. If true, this is what you call a buried lead.
US officials speaking on condition of anonymity told AFP the military removed Korans from a prison at Bagram because inmates were suspected of using the holy book to pass messages to each other.
The backlash over the incident is likely to continue for several more days, said Martine van Bijlert of the Afghanistan Analysts’ Network.
“The demonstrations are a combination of religious outrage, pent-up frustration and groups wanting to stir trouble,” she wrote in an analysis.
If that’s the case, then the terrorists were mutilating the scripture over which Afghans are rioting and killing. So far 12 people and the idea of a civilized Afghanistan have died in these riots. Among them, two NATO troops killed by an Afghan soldier.
“An individual wearing an Afghan National Army uniform turned his weapon against International Security Assistance Force service members in eastern Afghanistan today, killing two service members,” ISAF said.
President Obama’s apology for burning the Korans hasn’t done a thing to calm the Afghan street. It’s likely to make things worse over the long haul. Perhaps we should be grateful that he didn’t accuse our troops of “acting stupidly.”
After 10 years of war, the people of Afghanistan don’t love us, they don’t fear us, and they don’t respect us. We lack the confidence in our culture to demand better of the country that harbored al Qaeda and whose soil was the launch pad for 9-11. As long as that’s the case, and it has been the case ever since we’ve been involved there and is more the case with the current regime in power in the US, we stand little chance of achieving anything there that will last more than 10 minutes after we exit.
My own reaction?
It is disgraceful to apologize to our enemies, and especially disgraceful to grovel for having done something that was not blameworthy in the first place.
On the other hand, when it comes to the Christian Serbs, NATO has indeed committed an egregious evil and has yet to admit any wrongdoing. Just for starters, I’m waiting for NATO to apologize to the Serbian people for having turned Kosovo, Serbia’s sacred land, over to an Albanian Muslim narcoterrorist gang known at that time as the KLA. It has been well over a decade, and the US/NATO/EULEX occupation forces have failed to come up with any evidence to justify having made war upon the Serbs.
Unlike the Muslims, the Serbs never perpetrated any attack on the US, its European allies, or anyone else. So where’s our apology?
