Burn Desecrated Korans?

* BUMPED UP *

The Obama Administration–from CENTCOM to the White House–has botched the entire response to the report that Korans taken from prisoners suspected of terrorism were burned. I don’t care whether this was intentional or a mistake. The Administration should have kept its damn collective-mouth shut. There was no compelling reason to admit to this. Should they have lied? HELL YES!! I do not believe we should deliberately antagonize or attack another religion, including Islam. But in this case the Korans that were torched had been confiscated from inmates who had written on the pages of a book Muslims consider holy. Muslims had already desecrated their so-called “holy” book.

The initial reports about this incident should have been ignored and denied. This is not a goddamn court case. No one is under oath. The U.S. military and the Obama Administration should have lied. They should have insisted that the Koran aka Quran was not burned. But no. We decided to admit to this error and launch an apology tour. WHAT HORSESHIT!!

The Taliban urged Afghans Thursday to target foreign military bases and kill Westerners in retaliation for burnings of copies of the Quran at NATO’s main base in the country as a third day of violent protests began.

Thousands of demonstrators gathered across the country, some chanting “Death to America!”, Reuters witnesses and officials said. In eastern Kabul, hundreds of youths threw rocks at police, who fired shots into the air to try disperse the crowds.

“Our brave people must target the military bases of invader forces, their military convoys and their invader bases,” read an emailed Taliban statement released by the insurgency’s spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid. “They have to kill them (Westerners), beat them and capture them to give them a lesson to never dare desecrate the holy Quran again.”

We do not owe anyone an apology. Not for this. There is a time to lie. There is a time to deny. Admitting to this earns us nothing. In fact, it costs us dearly. Besides the two U.S. soldiers murdered by a crazed Afghan asshole, U.S. citizens and facilities are at greater risk throughout the Middle East.

What should we have done? Apart from denying the burning of the books, we should have announced that, after inspecting the books, the inmate Korans’ were being returned.

This one is on Obama. Instead of keeping his mouth shut he was back out in public flapping his gums and bowing and scraping like some beaten house servant. “We so sorry Massa Muslim.”

Barack Obama owes an apology to the people of America for being such a spineless wimp.

I’m not a big fan of Newt Gingrich, but he nailed it on this:

Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said President Obama “surrendered” Thursday when he apologized to the Afghan government for the burning of several Qurans at an American military base near Kabul.

Referring to the burning of “radical Islamic material” that included the Qurans, the former House speaker said the situation had been “blown into a huge incident by various fanatics in Afghanistan.” He told a crowd gathered at a campaign rally at the Bing Crosby Theater that while the president had apologized for the burning, he had not called on the Afghan government to issue an apology for the deaths of two NATO soldiers who were killed by a man wearing an Afghan army uniform during increasingly violent protests of the desecration of the Muslim holy book.

“There seems to be nothing that radical Islamists can do to get Barack Obama’s attention in a negative way,” Gingrich said, “and he is consistently apologizing to people who do not deserve the apology of the president of the United States, period.”

And a word of advice to General John Allen–SHUT THE FUCK UP. Stop apologizing in public for something that does not merit an apology.

    Hello
    I heard you on the Batchelor last night and am in agreement with you and the language here is even more forceful – congrats on a good piece.   The creepy boot-licking, the bowing and scraping of President Obama and others down the chain of command is breathtaking in its obeisance and bewildering in its intent.  But I think yourself and others have accepted the presupposition that the prisoners should be supplied with, or even possess  Korans in the first place.  Is it a prison or is it a Madras?  Here is a bit I wrote ( when the story broke, before anyone was killed):

    Afghans were unexcited, even blasé, when our Marines were recently
    caught on camera urinating on the dead bodies of their(the Afghans)
    Taliban comrades. Hey, no problemo, amigo, we can dig it. But
    accidentally toss a Quran in the garbage and all hell breaks loose.
    Plainly, the whole of Afghan society is gripped by a kind of collective
    hysteria, an obsessional behavior rooted in a sick pit of superstitious
    tribalism, whipped to a psychotic fury by so-called Imams (aka opium
    dealers). Good job, President Obama. The prison library for Taliban
    terrorists is well stocked: books of inspiring Islamic songs and poetry,
    “hadith” interpretation tracts, 70 different editions of the Quran,
    along with a a new “I Moved Your Cheese: For Those Who Refuse to Live as
    Mice in Someone Else’s Maze” as well as an old dog-eared copy of Dan
    Greenberg’s “How To Be a Jewish Mother”. Oy.

    Does anyone really think it a capital idea to stoke the religious mania
    of those who ALREADY COMMITTED A CRIME IN THE NAME OF ALLAH with more of
    the mumbo-jumbo that forms the filamentous skeleton of their mania?
    Kinda like giving the alkie whiskey for breakfast.  Here’s an idea: at
    Bagram, we confer the jailed terrorists with unlimited access to The
    World Book Encyclopedia and bequeath the Qurans to The Afghan home for
    Advanced Alzheimer patients.

    How can the military on one hand claim that the reason the Korans were confiscated was because the radicals had written messages to one another on them and on the other hand claim that their destruction was an accident?

    Please understand, I am not taking sides. The logic baffles me. And the lack of real information is so minimal and full of spin.

    Talk about a real scum bucket… Typical Fox News bullshit….

    During a taping of the Stossel show at the 2012 International Students for Liberty Conference in Washington D.C., I got to confront neo-conservative war monger John Bolton on the issue of blowback, and itmiraculously made it’s way onto the Stossel show! I’m guessing we have the man himself, John Stossel, to thank for that.

    Of course, this is Fox we’re talking about, so there is some disingenuous editing. But the content of my question and Bolton’s response is completely intact! Thank you Stossel!

      jrterrier – I sincerely hope this is propaganda but if it’s not and Nato officials have agreed to this, this is beyond “outrageous” – this is a “heinous act of cowardice and appeasement”.  What’s the difference between people being “sacrificed in ancient times to jealous and angry gods” and what NATO is supposedly doing to those innocent people who were probably just carrying out orders, that in the final analysis only offended some barbaric religious fanatics?

        Another article by NQ that promotes an environment of hate toward Muslims. Reading through this thread of comments suggests a high level of ignorance about Muslims and what the U.S. is doing in Afghanistan.

        Wishful thinking by you LJ, to say we should just ignore this incident and carry on like nothing has or is happening in Afghanistan. No apology is needed. That really is your solution. That everything is fine, as long as we do not apologize.

        Greenwald has it right as he usually does with his comment here:

        http://www.salon.com/2012/02/26/the_causes_of_the_protests_in_afghanistan/singleton/

        As Greenwald says and as I said in my original post here, it is not just about burning Korans.

        “Protesters in Kabul interviewed on the road and in front of Parliament said that this was not the first time that Americans had violated Afghan cultural and religious traditions and that an apology was not enough.“This is not just about dishonoring the Koran, it is about disrespecting our dead and killing our children,” said Maruf Hotak, 60, a man who joined the crowd on the outskirts of Kabul, referring to an episode in Helmand Province when American Marines urinated on the dead bodies of men they described as insurgents and to a recent erroneous airstrike on civilians in Kapisa Province that killed eight young Afghans.“They always admit their mistakes,” he said. “They burn our Koran and then they apologize. You can’t just disrespect our holy book and kill our innocent children and make a small apology.” “”Members of Parliament called on Afghans to take up arms against the American military, and Western officials said they feared that conservative mullahs might incite more violence at the weekly Friday Prayer, when a large number of people worship at mosques.“Americans are invaders, and jihad against Americans is an obligation,” said Abdul Sattar Khawasi, a member of Parliament from the Ghorband district in Parwan Province, where at least four demonstrators were killed in confrontations with the police on Wednesday.”"It’s comforting to believe that these violent protests and the obviously intense anti-American rage driving them is primarily about anger over the inadvertent burning of some religious books: that way, we can dismiss the rage as primitive and irrational and see the American targets as victims. But the Afghans themselves are making clear that this latest episode is but the trigger for — the latest symbol of — a pile of long-standing, underlying grievances about a decade-old, extremely violent foreign military presence in their country. It’s much more difficult to dismiss those grievances as the by-product of primitive religious fanaticism, so — as usual — they just get ignored.”By the way it is protestors who are being killed outside of U.S. bases by it looks like Afghan police.

      HelenK2  -can anyone blame them with being fed up? Not to oversimplify – but I think back to elementary school.  There were always a few bullies in the crowd.  If I recall, it never worked trying to appease bullies and certainly not apologizing to them because they used some “stupid or irrational reason” for being offended.  The only thing that works with bullies is standing up to them and saying “you’re not going to put up with their bullying behavior anymore.”  Somehow our nation’s leaders never learned this basic principle back in elementary school.
