Demonstrators hurled grenades at a U.S. base in northern Afghanistan, and a gun battle left two Afghans dead and seven NATO troops injured Sunday in the escalating crisis over the burning of Muslim holy books at an American airfield.
More than 30 people have been killed, including four U.S. troops, in six days of unrest. Still, the top U.S. diplomat in Afghanistan said the violence would not change Washington's course .
"Tensions are running very high here, and I think we need to let things calm down, return to a more normal atmosphere, and then get on with business," Ambassador Ryan Crocker told CNN's "State of the Union."
"This is not the time to decide that we're done here," he said. "We have got to redouble our efforts. We've got to create a situation in which al-Qaida is not coming back."

Or if you open up on them with quad fifties.
An apology only fans the flames because it emboldens the barbarians, and Barky knows it.
Lite em up.
Pull all our people out. Nuke the place and call it a day.
Hurl some grenades back....Mark 19 style.
Just Quad 50’s ?? You lack vision. Napalm and Willie Pete.
A few B-52-loads of Fuel-air bombs, spaced to maximize the carnage.
Or just trap a few thousand wild boar, and parachute them in breeding pairs into the Afghan hills. . . .
Guess our Christan President missed this one Sunday! (s)
Yes,yes. “Tensions are running very high here, and I think we need to let things calm down, return to a more normal atmosphere, and then get on with business,”.
Try telling that to the families of the soldiers and officers who were killed.
Anyone who knows the psyche of these barbarians know that they only respect strength. When they see weakness, they ramp up the attack.
That said, I wonder if the "WON" doesn't know this. I don't wonder that his sympathies lie on their side. His ROE alone demonstrate that.
I don’t know why these moslims so upset, most of them cannot read anyway.
Weakness only inflames the vicious idiots even more.
And they can smell the weakness of Obama half a world away.
"Demonstrators" carry signs, chant, and maybe burn a few effigies.
"Enemy combatants" throw live grenades and kill people.
I'd say these are the latter - and should be treated as such! They should be given a good dose of lead until they are either dead or surrender.
My gawd. How much more mealy-mouthed and pussified can we get?
We have morphed from a War On Islamic Extremism to a Dithering Fool's Errand...
Has Zero ever apologized to Christians for burning Bibles?
An apology only fans the flames
That’s because Obama hasn’t demonstrated sincerity in his apology. I suggest he cry in his next apology and sacrifice one of the kids or Michelle to demonstrate how sorry we are. That should stop the terrorists in their tracks.
I think obama apologized to them just to make us angry... and its working.. I am angry.
I was just thinking of close quarters.
The Food Stamp President needs to learn how to properly grovel. Muslims do not appreciate the person grovelling to be arrogant and haughty. He must learn how to properly bow, scrape and humbly crawl before the scum of the earth with his sniveling apology.
Maybe the Translator messed up the translation?
