Newt Gingrich: Get apology for soldiers deaths or exit Afghanistan now
Savannahnow.com ^ | Mar. 2, 2012 | Larry Peterson

Posted on 03/02/2012 4:55:46 PM PST by katiedidit1

U.S. forces should leave Afghanistan “immediately” if its leader won’t apologize for its soldiers killing Americans, Newt Gingrich says.

Stumping on Friday for Tuesday’s Georgia Republican presidential primary, Gingrich lit into President Barack Obama’s Afghanistan policies.

“This is an administration that apologizes to Islam and makes war on the Catholic Church,” the former Georgia Congressman and House speaker told nearly 200 people in Savannah.

“I would not risk the life of a single American ... in a country whose religious fanatics are trying to kill us and whose government seems to be on the side of the fanatics,” Gingrich said."

Bravo Newt!

I’m with Newt on this.
Afghanistan has become a farce.
If we can’t be in charge we may as well GTFO.

Thanks for the posts:) and how about Hillary supporting Obommie the Commie on his apology and urging the terrorists to ignore the republican candidates comments. Just whose side is she on?

AMEN! Newt needs to hammer this point home. He should be on every Sunday show and take out full pages ads in the Sunday papers of every Super Tuesday state.

Karzai is demanding that the US put on trial the soldiers who burned the Korans (without mentioning that the reason they were being destroyed was because MUSLIM prisoners had already “desecrated” them by using them to send coded messages to each other.)

The New York Times is trying to turn this story into another Haditha and we need a candidate who will not just call them on it but demand that the President tell Karzai to apologize to US!

Gingrich has more guts than the entire poodle establishment in Washington DC and certainly more than a few 30 IQ surrender monkeys here on FR who want Rush to cave for calling a planted marxist Georgetown slut a slut.

Well, this IS the woman who reportedly used profanity to refer to a Jewish person. I believe she's as thoroughly anti-Semite as anyone on the left. When I saw her tell that Arab that our candidates' pro-Israel remarks had nothing to do with THEIR administration, I thought my head would explode.

Kate...Have been away from the election for a couple days now...not commenting much as I want this to go further with all three in the game....although ideally Romney stepping down would be more than a celebration!

At any rate am staying the course with Newt all the way, am absolutely convinced he's the only man for the job....all others pale in comparison....and that's just the facts.

Unfortunately we have voters falling for social-lite Santorum, who won't do squat ...his plan sucks and he has no clout in Washington or history to show he can get congress on board.....we'll go further in debt while he addresses contraceptives, and the social issues dear to him...but don't pay the bills or steer the ship!

Sweet lady, I hope you know that you are now living in the Tornado Alley. You & family do all you can to be prepared for those things. Put all valuables, important papers, survival equipment, food, light, etc. in a basement or some underground storage place. When we lived there, some towns were wiped off the map. I still have pictures. It’s a great place with wonderful people, but it does get weather.

Glad you are back caww:) I’ve been away too...tornado hit here and killed my former next door neighbor. We went to our shelter and came out after the all clear on the weather radio...2 am in the morning the Search and Rescue was here looking for our friend...little did we know until the next morning he was a victim of the tornado.
But I am still here through so much going on at home and will fight for our guy Newt

Leave them alone, Santorum is in the birth control war, Romney is in the “I can beat Obama” war. Newts in a battle for the very soul of this nation. (in a couple of days the other two will catch up)

Me either Kate. The heck of it is we FINANCE those bstards, and train them to turn around and kill us. What kind of a twisted world do we live in.

Get out troops out of there now, and I don't care what those animals do to one another.

Newt is so right on this. In fact, I don't even care about the apology, (because it isn't going to happen anyway), just walk out of there, kick the dust off their shoes and never look back. Time for them to handle their own problems.

Go NEWT he's on a roll with all these points.

Isn’t that sort of like throwing Briar Rabbit into the Briar Patch?

IOW, isnt’t that just what Obama wants in the first place? As as bonus, then he can blame the “loss” of Afghanistan on the Republicans.

Now if Newt had added, “... and then nuke the place” that would be a different story.

Bummer wants to cut back our nuclear arsenal. This would be a way to do it. Dumb gravity bombs from the bird designed for that job. The Big Ugly Fat Fellow, the B-52.

While this makes for good politics now, the fact of the matter is we should have been out of Afghanistan in 2003.

And, we should not condition our immediate withdraw on an apology from the pseudo-Government of Afghanistan.

We should leave unilaterally, now. Today. Yesterday even.

Those are my feeling exactly. Santorum is at best okay, but if you look at him as a leader, he’s going to get bogged down on controversial social issues when he should be driving the dagger into the heart of the Democrat machine over this debt nonsense and economic downturn.

When the economy starts turning around, you can start to address social issues.

I just see Santorum stumbling all over himself like he has done throughout this campagin. Newt is a finisher. It’s just evident. The guy gets things done.

I voted early for Newt in Tennessee. I can only hope he surges enough to get back in the race.
