KABUL, Afghanistan -- President Hamid Karzai on Friday condemned the alleged desecration of the bodies of two dead Taliban fighters by U.S. troops, but he said mistakes happen in war and Afghans shouldn't let it mar their impression of the United States.
His apparent attempt to reduce Afghans' anger over the incident came amid warnings by Islamic clerics of a possible violent anti-American backlash.
"Sometimes things happen in these sort of operations, during war. Soldiers make mistakes," he told reporters in Kabul. "We are very grateful for the international community's assistance. ... Their soldiers have shed their blood in our country."

Why are they upset? These were Taliban who desecrated 3 thousand in New York.
I suppose they flushed the remains down the toilet with the Koran, right?
Where was muSlime outrage when the bodies of our Soldiers were burned in FALLUJA?
Freedom fries smell good!
Where was the arab outage when Fallujains burned, chopped up, and hung corpses from bridges and then took pictures of them dancing around them?
"amid warnings by Islamic clerics of a possible violent anti-American backlash"
Clerics who don't condemn televised beheadings of innocent civilians aren't going to be our friends regardless of what we do or don't do. When are they going to get conerned about a possible violent anti-Islamic backlash?
Agree with you partner.
because the hypocrisy of the religion of peace knows no limits.
"Incinerating the corpse or discarding bodies to be eaten by vultures, wild beasts, etc., is considered sacrilege and abhorrent and, therefore, forbidden according to Islam."

Muslims demand we pay them respect...but they show no respect for non-muslims or our faiths.
I am sorry to say I had forgotten about that. What an excellent point!
methinks they protest too much...
Aren't these the same taliban that are blowing up, maiming, torturing and killing them?
Yeah they were DEAD any damn way and wouldn't give 2 chits about blowing up our folk over there.
Stupid arse Muslim PC!~}
Get used to it. They show no consideration for infidels.
A few days ago: Kabul, 19 Oct. (AKI) - The governor of a southern district of Afghanistan has been killed by suspected Taliban, during evening prayers. Haji Ahmadullah, governor of Argandab, was shot dead in the mosque of his home city Panjwayee at around 8.30pm local time on Tuesday evening, according to Assadullah Khaled, governor of the Kandahar province where the assassination took place.
How about that? Killed in a mosque! By Taliban!
Say, that's sound like sacrilege to me.
Why is it O.K. to saw off the head of a non-Muslim for release on public television, but not O.K. to burn the carcass of a Talibanista???
This reaction should illustrate the very serious problems inherent in maintaining any kind of serious dialogue with the practitioners of this belief system unless its over the barrel of a loaded gun with us holding the trigger.
It should also illustrate the illusory belief that Muslims in general can be successfully integrated into a western civlized society.
Their "them versus us" perspective is something out of the 7th century. Not only has it not improved with time, it has actually deteriorated.
Desecrate one of their barbarians- baaaad.
Desecrate, mutilate and celebrate over the bodies of OUR people, that's ok.
I think these soldiers deserve medals for using what WORKS against the enemy.
They were too damned civilized if you ask me.
I'd desecrate the entire country- border to border- and every Islamic country on the planet for good measure.
I'm sick of this--just SICK of it.
Do whatever it takes to destroy the enemy.
Atone later if you feel the need.
I'm damned sick of this. 'Desecrate' a barbarian and we're baaaad. They desecrate, mutilate and celebrate over American bodies, and that's just how they are!
These soldiers deserve commendations for using what works against the enemy. I would desecrate the whole damned hellhole of a country from border to border, along with all other Islamic countries for good measure.
It's WAR, you use all weapons available to you.
Do what you have to to win.
Atone later if you feel the need.
Once in US history an episode of Islamic terrorism was very quickly stopped. It happened in the Philippines about 1911, when Gen. John J. Pershing was in command of the garrison. There had been numerous Islamic terrorist attacks, so "Black Jack" told his boys to catch the perps and teach them a lesson.
Forced to dig their own graves, the terrorists were all tied to posts, execution style. The US soldiers then brought in pigs and slaughtered them, rubbing their bullets in the blood and fat. Thus, the terrorists were terrorized; they saw that they would be contaminated with hogs' blood. This would mean that they could not enter Heaven, even if they died as terrorist martyrs.
All but one was shot, their bodies dumped into the grave, and the hog guts dumped atop the bodies. The lone survivor was allowed to escape back to the terrorist camp and tell his brethren what happened to the others. This brought a stop to terrorism in the Philippines for the next 50 years.
Honestly, given a few decades of these made up incidents, I wonder what our relations with Afghanistan would be like.
Why don't we remember the poor folks who jumped out windows at the World Trade Center in order to avoid a horrible burning death? Our American soldiers did well, even though they were just burning DEAD Taliban bodies. God Bless our American military.
