Karzais Response to Obamas Apology: Put U.S. Troops on Trial and Punish Them By Terence P. Jeffrey February 26, 2012
(CNSNews.com) - Three days after President Barack Obama dispatched his ambassador to Afghanistan to hand deliver a personal letter from the president of the United States to Afghan President Hamid Karzai apologizing because U.S. forces at Bagram Air Force Base had mistakenly burnt some Korans, Karzai has responded to the gesture in a statement broadcast live on Afghan television.
Karzai, according to a BBC translation of his remarks made Sunday, told the Afghan people he was speaking to them after discussing the matter with jihadi leaders, prominent scholars, and Afghan elected officials, and that he spoke for the pure sentiments of the Afghan nation and the Islamic world, when he said: We call on the US government to bring the perpetrators of the act to justice and put them on trial and punish them.
At the same time Karzai was demanding the prosecution and punishment of U.S. troops involved in the Koran-burning incident, he conceded that the U.S. government had indicated that the Koran burning was not deliberate.

God DAMN Karzai.
My response to Karzai would be to turn his worthless part of the world into glass.
Karzai is just being who he is.
The US Commander in Chief has blood on his hands.
Time to get us out and then NUKE’em! I suggest dropping millions of Kosher hams from 40,000 feet!
The voters sure picked a poor time to put a wussified community organizer in the White House. Walk softly and carry a big hug.
Agreed. That hell hole has generated nothing but death for thousand of years. Let’s just make it uninhabitable and put it out of humanity’s misery.
Turn it into a glass desert and be done with it.
The thug in chief will never do it, but our response should be to pull all US security details from protecting this Karzai weasel immediately, and all of our troops in 30 days.
That’s a big, fat HE double-hockey sticks NO.
There’s nothing like a fair trial under Islamic law!/s
Send in the Seals to capture Karzai and put him on trial for crimes against the US.
These savages only know death and destruction. A bit of Shock and Awe might be in order. Remove ground troops and let the real Shock and Awe begin. Then take the handcuffs off the troops and let them do thir jobs, kill the enemy and break what’s left. Time to show the savages America will not be played.
Actually, the Muslim in Chief himself said yesterday that the people involved in this “desecration” will be punished.
So that means three people, following a legitimate order to destroy defaced Korans that were being used for sending messages between prisoners, are now going to be hauled out and either handed over to the Afghanis or given a show-trial here.
I am so disgusted I don’t know where to begin.
Were I CIC, this would be my reply:
“They are United States Military, you Cretin. It may rankle you to have a BOOK burned - but it is NOT a crime.
You, on the other hand, do have the murders of our soldiers in custody and they will be tried, right?
The ONLY thing we now need to do to our soldiers is bring them home - EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM. Not one soldier left in that country. Go back to the stone age.
THEY SAVED YOUR SORRY ASS, PUT YOU ON WHAT YOU HAVE MADE YOUR THRONE. NOW GO BACK TO RULE UNDER THE TALIBAN. See how long you strut around in your fine robes.
We can’t - WON”T - worry about your country anymore. Just be sure none of your barbarians do one more thing against even one American or your country, starting with you, will become glass.”
Our collaborating, bowing, scraping, apologizes, CIC is what causes this brazenness. This can be laid directly on his doorstep - which should not be, btw, the WH.
More like walk softly and wear kneepads.
Interesting comparison: you can’t insult the Judeo-Christian deity, nor can you destroy his Bible, for the two are immutable and beyond the feeble powers of the world to hurt. On the other hand, the god and writings of Islam are poor, pathetic things, requiring continual defense at the hands of men.
I propose we put a bunker buster up his arse!.
