Skip to comments.Gen. Keane on U.S. - Afghan Relations: "They Want Respect"
Posted on 02/26/2012 4:25:51 PM PST by ColdOne
Most Americans don't understand the anti-American sentiments on display in the streets of Afghanistan. Former 4-star General Jack Keane explains it simply, "They [Afghans] want respect." Keane told America's News Headquarters, "That's what is driving this. The Taliban and others who are trying to undermine the government are exploiting it."
Some Afghans are still reeling over the burning of Korans at an American base outside of Kabul. The riots continued for a sixth day on Sunday. The crowds battled Afghan security forces and threw grenades at a U.S. base in Kunduz province, wounding seven people. Saturday two Americans were killed inside of the Interior Ministry.
General Keane went on to say America has a good relationship with the Afghan people, but America's relationship with some of the country's leaders, specifically President Hamid Karzai, is another matter entirely.

Kind of like Aretha Franklin, right?
When is this going to stop??????????
Hopefully in January!
By the way, what do you think Newt would do to generals that bow to the enemy? Or, maybe their just doing it because they are being commanded to.
And Keane is in charge of respectfully shining the Afghan’s shoes.
I think it’s time for a Dunkirk option in A’stan.And before we go we should arm all sides to the teeth.
Ain’t gettin’ it from me.
Up yours, muzzies, and take your “religion” with you.
You’ve fully demonstrated that you are something to be destroyed.
- bad behavior does not earn respect.
If you want respect you have to earn respect.
THEY HAVE TO EARN IT!!!
This is the ass who told Meghan Kelley that “every religion demands respect for its symbols,” “definitely, it was right for the president to apologize.” I forgot—how many artists did we kill for Maplethorpe’s urine-submerged crucifix? This guy had to have gotten his fourth* under Obama and his commission under LBJ. Where are all you Hudson High alums on this!!!!????
Give us respect or we keeel you
Yeah, that works
You think a bunch of murderous thugs can ever EARN respect?
One might wonder how many eunuchs are recruited from among the elite to be generals nowadays.
You want Respect? Really?
Get a dog!
Bullhockey! I said it on 911 and I’ll say it for the duration: They’re just a tribe of cunning animals! To call them educated monkeys would be an insult to monkeys!
And their so-called “religion” is a crude facade, from behind which, they act out and show who they actually are. Respect?! When have they done anything deserving of any?! They don’t even respect one another!
It’s akin to “Animal Rights.” It will be time to give animals rights when they start giving ONE ANOTHER rights! When I see a lion or a leopard giving rights to a gazelle, or even to a cheetah, I’ll know it’s time. The animals that are rioting now in Afghanistan will deserve respect when they begin respecting OTHERS; especially those of OTHER beliefs.
His mom messed up naming him JACK Keane. Methinks maybe Peachy Keane would be more fitting his chops.....or lack of any!
No. Just saying that if they want respect they have to earn it. They don't respect our traditions and beliefs so why should they get any respect from us.
So does the punk ass hanging out on the corner. So what? What's to respect?
When you are a Savage and a natural born murderer, you don’t get any respect.
Poor discipline, corrupt, penchant for opium and clannishness, often illiterate and displaying open contempt for their uniforms and equipment.....
There are even rumors Karzai HIMSELF is a heroin junkie.
But they want RESPECT —nice.
Someone tell the barbarians that respect is earned.
If it is respect that they understand, let’s cause them to respect us.
In all honesty, I do not care if little kids go to school in Kabul. That makes me an insensitive lout, I know. But I have enough to worry about here.
$4 trillion in minerals are never going to end up here.
The Afghans want respect, just like Fredo from the Godfather movie
“I can handle things! I’m smart! Not like everybody says... like dumb... I’m smart and I want respect! “
Worthless Saracen bastards aren’t fit enough to be pissed on.
