In a world where every aberrant act, every self-inflicted malady, and every vice is considered an epidemic, we most certainly need to add to this list the act of prostrating oneself and, by extension, his country for every single assumed infraction of societal and ideological moray in every minor culture in the world!
As an American, watching senior officers and elected officials continually apologizing for one piece of inanity or another has passed from bothersome to an active insult to the American people! And even if some percentage of this population is not insulted by this most despicable of trends, many of us are! These officers and our elected officials fail to understand they do not represent the many foreign cultures of the world, and they certainly are not properly representing us by continuing to prostrate themselves and those they represent for every little suggestion of insensitivity toward the delicate mental state of the ideologically unhinged.
This latest example was provoked by a gaggle of angry Afghan protesters who were reacting to a story that the Koran or even several copies of the Koran had been disposed of – unceremoniously. If anyone had read the actual account, they would have learned that the copies that were discarded and burned belonged to EPWs (Enemy Prisoners of War) being held on Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan. They were confiscated when it was determined that the EPWs were using the Koran as an illicit messaging system to communicate with one another.
For those of you who do not understand the implications of that little piece of information, allowing EPWs access to one another, overtly or covertly, increases the chances of everything from an escape attempt to violent acts against their guards. Removing the Koranic message pads was not only good judgment, it was necessary and may have saved lives – American lives.
Varying versions of the story have indicated as few as 100 and as many as 2000 “noble” Afghans had “assembled” for a protest of the alleged desecration of the Koran. These “peaceful” and “noble” protestors threw rocks and firebombs at security forces in anger over the insensitive handling of their “holy” book.
Just an aside; why is it that protesters, whether on this side of the big pond or the other, are considered sincere, peaceful and righteous when they employ actions that endanger the very lives of those around them, but when someone lodges a peaceful, verbal or written complaint against Obama’s leftward governing, they are being unreasonable, hate-filled, and even racist? And why is it that if someone were to burn the Bible – unceremoniously or otherwise — that the same kind of reaction to that act would not also be seen as reasonable? Why is it we tolerate these acts of intolerance only from the “noble” Islamic adherent?
A video shows the American Officer in charge of ISAF expounding on the horrors of the handling of the Islamic text as he tries to assure his Afghan audience and the Muslim world that this whole episode was just an unfortunate accident and is currently under investigation. His public Nostrum Mendum would have been at least a little balanced if he had also mentioned that the Korans in question had already been desecrated by the Islamic EPWs, who were the original owners and who were using them as, essentially, a combat notebook. Do you suppose the “noble” protestors would have been as incensed by that knowledge? Do you think they would have demanded those Islamic prisoners be handed over for a “proper chastisement”? Or is this episode just another indication of the intolerance of a people ensconced in a religious ideology that preaches and demands intolerance of others?
Where were those “noble” Afghan protestors when eleven (yes, eleven Afghan policemen opened fire on NATO troops two...? And for that matter, did this officer or his US political “handlers” care enough about that attack and the countless other attacks that have occurred in the past three years, to denounce them publicly, to the “noble” Afghan?
I can’t seem to find that video anywhere…
I was also wondering why it is so imperative that we as a nation be “sensitive” to the intolerance of a people who would just as soon have our heads on several pikes while admonishing our very same population for not being tolerant enough of others?
This goes far beyond the discussion of double standards. We are now firmly engaged in the psychologically sick act of self-destruction. We are no longer satisfied to consider ourselves or the actions of our predecessors loathsome; we are now obsessed with ensuring our own destruction as a nation, a culture, and a people. Our leadership is no longer interested in right or wrong, truth or lie, acts of desecration or accidental disposal, the survival of our nation or the perception of our strength. All that really counts is ensuring the most despicable people and cultures of this world truly believe our heartfelt apology for existing and that we will continue to strive for the total annihilation of our culture, society, and population.
The country I heard about, read about, and was taught about as a child seems to have vaporized. The dream that was the vision of our founding fathers, which was kept alive even through the generation of my parents and a sizeable portion of my generation, has been circumvented by a subculture of prostrating, anti-American self-mutilators who seem to think they represent all of us.
I have sad news for you; you don’t!
If you have not already watched this video response to Obama's apology then you really should. Don't let the beginning of it mislead you as to her msg. Listen to the whole thing. It's great. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYEctbGSkkw&feature=colike
This woman is so correct and to the point that i find her to be awesome. She said in a matter of minutes things that Myself and others had to take years to express.
Oh yes!! That's the kind of apology our leaders should have given, but like the young lady said "they don't have the balls"!!!
I do not think that we have to wander. All that is just deliberate and calculated. Just telling Muslims - you can do anything you want, USA will be supporting you by Muslim unelected people in government with the president we did secure for you.
Hears an idea don't take any prisoners just shoot the bastards! As far as burning the koran I would do it a heart beet.
Americans are way to soft it's time to take control starting with getting rid of Obama and ALL of congress before it's to late.
I tried to burn a koran [sic] once, but I couldn't ignite the urine-soaked pages.
Twana Obama has to be forced to move to Asscrackistan
Thank you for your service Marine! Col Ronald d. Ray USMC Ret. First Principles Press in KY. back a decade past was saying he believed it would be the men trained by our Military who would restore what is being taken from us while we play with our gun. (He didn't say it so crude --I did) But I agree with Mr.Ronald D.Ray. USMC Ret. and I thank you for your service,Sir!
I 100% agree. What else would you expect from a bunch of limp wristed marxists democRATS.
1SG. US ARMY RETIRED
Time to get into the act also.
Burn your very own "virtual" copy of the Qur'an right here:
I burned a dozen, then bookmarked it so I can go back and burn lots more!! Thanks for the link!!
I am convinced that if Obama wins another term, it will precipitate the bloodiest period in or national history. He AND his Marxist Muslim minions all need to be removed from power if we are to survive as the nation first conceived by OUR Founding Fathers. NEVER could they have thought that we would EVER succumb to the machinations of a Marxist Muslim Megalomanaic like Barack Hussein Obama. Has it been noticed by any of you that the American Flag is no longer present against the golden Arabic lettered tapestries in the White House when Obama gives his usual deceitful and totally untruthful speeches from that location? We need to begin organizing NOW for what we know will be the most illegitimate election in U.S. History. If we cannot safeguard to the greatest degree possible, the integrity of these elections, we'd better be armed to the teeth to be prepared for the violent aftermath sure to follow. It is not a matter of opinion; rather a matter of the repetition on one level or another of HISTORICAL PRECEDENT! Those who do not heed the lessons of history are doomed to repeat the mistakes inherent in them. We as a people, have allowed this to happen; we will have to make the correction or succumb. As a 67 year old, my greatest regret is for our progeny who will have to live in a world we allowed to be created for them and denying them of their heritage and birthright of freedom. SHAME ON US!
