Afghan's Karzai demands public trial for Quran burners
msnbc.com ^ | 2/23/12 | msnbc.com news services

Posted on 02/23/2012 12:03:44 PM PST by ColdOne

KABUL -- Afghanistan wants NATO to put on public trial those who burned copies of the Quran at a NATO base, President Hamid Karzai's office said Thursday, after a third day of bloody protests over the incident.

It said NATO had agreed to a trial, but that could not be immediately confirmed.

Karzai had earlier accused a U.S. officer of "ignorantly" burning copies of the Quran, in an incident that has deepened anti-Western sentiment in a country NATO is trying to stabilize before foreign combat troops leave by the end of 2014.

Demonstrations have drawn thousands of angry Afghans to the streets, chanting "Death to America!" amid violence that has killed 11 people including two U.S. service personnel.

Time to decamp and leave these fools to their fate of living in mud huts and killing each other. Nation building is a failure.

Let’s act in accordance with the kind of mercy the Qu’ran dictates - we hang Karzai and nuke the rest of the country.

Unfortunately we won’t be leaving them to their own fate. We’ll be leaving them to infect our fate in perpetuity.

We’ve got about two choices here. Encourage the Taliban to enter the 21st century with the rest of civilization, or reduce their numbers.

The religion of the perpetually offended is at it again. Now two Americans are dead as Obama apologizes in writing. Oh for a President that would irradiate the rioters and make the world fear messing with the US. Back in reality, Obama makes us the laughing stock, play ground weakling, kicked by every bully around.

Get US troops out and end the “nation building” fantasy.

A new strategy for Af-Pak should be destabilization. Arm everyone, let them fight each other, and use airpower or special forces as necessary. Same with Pakistan. Encourage them break into their tribal/ethnic/religious factions, and encourage India to dismember them. Make them all weak

It is inevitable Af-Pak will return to a pre- 9/11 situation, but this time, don’t be afraid to attack when/where necessary, or support opponents of any Islamists who return.

It will become messy on the ground, so it is very important that citizens/natives of these countries are not allowed into the USA.

We should have leveled Afghanistan 10 years ago and then left whatever savages survived to clean up the mess. These filthy, duplicitious bastards aren’t worth one precious drop of American blood.

“It said NATO had agreed to a trial, but that could not be immediately confirmed.”

If so, there goes the last shred of respect we should ever have for senior officers—all of whom will have shown that they are nothing more than careerists and shameless bootlickers.

Well said. It was also true ten years ago but I was too stupid to know. Democracy flowering over there? Iraq? Iran? There should be consequences for such a monumental screw up.

We should have bombed the bloody hell out of them within a week of 9/11, killed a hundred times as many of their people as died on 9/11, then told them, “Okay, if you want some more, there is more.”

I'm baffled by the fact we are still in Afghanistan.

We have absolutely no interest there and have not since the Specops folks were riding horses to oust the Taliban.

Once the Taliban we deposed and a few thousand killed, we should have simply left.

100 times 3000 I believe is 300,000. Your point is well taken, however. 300,000 is probably not enough.

Time to decamp and leave these fools to their fate of living in mud huts and killing each other. Nation building is a failure.

And if they ever allow their country to become a terrorist training ground again, just bomb and utterly destroy anything on the ground related to terrorism or the support of terrorism.

And never put even one US military member in that cesspool again.

Speaking of the Taliban who are fanning the flames as hard as they can but if i’m not mistaken those are the same people our moron leader has been reaching out to in order to sign some sort of peace treaty? Those guys?
Every candidate better point out just how naive and incompetent and stupid,and idiotic and American hating and did i say stupid already our current president is. The man is devoid of any instincts that will further our interests or protect our people. President zero is actually too kind. Smartest man in the room? Not even if that room was inside an anthill.

So, some terrorist detainees were using versus from the Koran’s we supplied to them to stir up more terror mindedness amongst the other detainees, quoting from the Koran, and we took them away and sent them to be burned.

The fundis riot and burn, our President apologizes, and now their President want sour people put on trial.

Tell him, and Obama, and anyone who is “embarassed” by this straight where to go.

For Heaven’s sake, we are treating these terrorists that we capture with kid gloves. Like we are somehow the culprits here...and the President of the US is in the forefront of this attitude.

These prisoners should be in solitatiry confinement and subjected to strong interrogation techniques, yes, including water boarding, until we squeeze evey bit of info we can out of them.

Then, under the Geneva convention, as irregulars, they should be summarily executed.

If the populations around there don’t like it and riot in protest and in support of the terrorist enemies, then treat them the same way we treated the German and Japanese populations in World War II who supported the Nazis and the Emperor...meaning we bomb and fire bomb their cities, towns, villages, and huts until they all abjectly surrender and want NO MORE of fundamental Islam.

Until they demand fundamentalists either leave their area or they hunt them down themselves to end our reprisals.

Thats how we defeated the Nazis and the Imperialists and we have had good Germans and Japanese ever since.

It’s past time we created “good” Islamics in the same fashion. That’s, IMHO, how this has to be handled or we will forever be fighting these people because we do not have the will to humble and defeat them sufficiently to produce a disavowal of this wretched, 17th century ideology.

It is time to get the hell out of that Hell Hole. Let them kill each other until the ground is red, but not one more American life.

We lost the war when we burned the Bibles so as to appease the Muslims. It’s time to admit our error and cut our losses.

No more blood for ..... whatever the hell Afghanistan produces.

The ground in Afghanistan has been cursed since the first Muslim set foot on it.
