... Evidence so far indicates that no malice was intended in the Koran-burning at the [Afghan] air base, Doug Wilson, the Pentagon's assistant secretary for public affairs, said today.
"We do not believe that this was something where those involved intended to burn the Koran as a religious document,["] Wilson said. ...
"After 10 years, incidents such as this have been extremely rare," he said. "No matter how serious this was, no one should necessarily extrapolate a broader trend about how our armed forces in Afghanistan are poised to treat religious and cultural materials." ...

President Obama has completely lost it. His "perspective" is reversed -- upside down. Intolerant Muslim savages are again on a murderous rampage simply because some American kid accidentally burned a book. Remember Muslim madness over the silly Mohammed cartoons? A crazed Afghan killed two American soldiers today because of this non-"incident," and all's Barack Obama can do is apologize to whom; the Taliban? 1,883 American soldiers have been killed trying to bring civilization to Afghanistan. It is the Afghan president and civic groups who should be apologizing to the U.S. for their own barbarism and bigotry. The book which was burned was the Koran, but nonetheless, just a collection of paper pages. President Obama should be ashamed of his "apology."
Oh, ye of little (nonexistent) faith. Are your "Islamic" beliefs so shallow that you would once again commit murder because some icon or object is accidentally destroyed? People of true faith have the strength and courage to remain civilized in the face of any tribulation -- because their beliefs are rooted in their hearts, minds, and souls, and not dependent on mere objects. True believers are also unshaken by the acts of hooligans. Do these barbaric Afghans even know what they are rampaging about? Do they have any feelings of conscientiousness, forgiveness, and/or compassion? Do they only understand violence and hatred? You can't shake my faith by burning my flag or my Bible or my Constitution -- I'll only dig my heals in because my faith tells me that civilization and the pen are mightier than any sword.
In 2001, the Taliban terrorist group so popular among Afghans, destroyed, "all ancient sculptures. Explosives, tanks, and anti-aircraft weapons blew apart two colossal images of the Buddha in Bamiyan Province, 230 kilometers (150 miles) from the capital of Kabul." Buddha was the Prince of Peace. Just read his words. He never condoned violence or intolerance.
Afghanistan was the staging ground for the 9/11 atrocity where the Taliban gave safe haven to the evil al-Qaeda plotters. These Afghan terrorists have murdered thousands of innocents and are the ultimate misogynists: "No place has been more synonymous with oppression of women in recent history than Afghanistan under the Taliban..." They stoned a woman to death for "being seen out with a man."
To heck with Afghanistan and President Obama. If the Taliban hurt us or our friends, we can carpet bomb them from the air. President Obama should be voted out of office for his misjudgement and cowardice. Oh, by the way Mr. Obama, your "apology" will only encourage more violence: "Taliban leaders called on Afghans to ignore the apologies and step up attacks against Americans."
At some point we’re going to find out after Obama leaves office that he is a muslim and has always been a muslim. He’ll be like Jimmy Carter on steroids after all is said and done, going around the world hating America, Israel and promoting islamic hatred of non-muslims. Sane Americans will look back and wonder how the hell this evil, monster of a man ever became president.
Definitely a self-loathing Jimmy Carter II...
Obama the communist hates America and the freedom we have - he hates our Armed Forces - Obama is a closet Muslim and also a Christ rejecting communist liar and he is only interested in destroying America and our freedoms - he will be judged by the living God one day - and in 2012 he will be judged by Americans who will vote to rid us of this communist Christ rejecting Muslim.
People who knew him at Occidental College said he was a dedicated Marxist-Leninist.
I suspect he still is, and has used Muslims in order to do what the grifter does best: act as a confidence man.
Ya know, Barry, we’re also sorry. We’re sorry that a bunch of drunk, drugged, lazy, stupid idiots and morons elected you to the highest, most prestigious office this nation has.
But, even more, we’re sorry that you are making a shambles of the country that I and my fellow Americans love and cherish and that you care so little for America and its honorable past, that you are making us a giant target for our enemies.
As a slightly off track comment, while all this chaos is going on, has anyone noticed that the MSM has completely forgotten that our supplies are still blocked by Pakistan and this administration has done squat.
I’m confused. I thought I heard on Rush today that according to Muslim laws, if a Koran has been written in, it must be burned. Seems to me the idiots that wrote in the Korans should be the ones to blame.
Something (or the whole story) isn’t getting reported here, as usual.
I sent obama an email tonight telling him how embarrassed I am to have him as a commander in chief. I wonder if it will make it back to my chain of command?
I could just see him trying to retaliate — er, ah, throw a tantrum — getting your email. Not to worry. A lot of people will be dissing him for this gaff.
“We do not believe that this was something where those involved intended to burn the Koran as a religious document,[”] Wilson said. ...
Wouldn’t it have to be a religious document??
What it is, is a blueprint for hate oppression and death.
The US Govt, with all its political correctness, is the most pro-sharia institution that exists in the world. By slavishly following and attending to every radical Muslim sensitivity and grievance, they are doing more to promote the notion of the supremacy of Islam - more than Osama bin Laden ever hoped to achieve.
I predicted on this forum on Jan 20, 2009 that if re-elected, Obama would re-convert to Islam in his 2nd term.
But, even more, were sorry that you are making a shambles of the country that I and my fellow Americans love and cherish and that you care so little for America and its honorable past, that you are making us a giant target for our enemies.
The president who would be king
