Back Stabber

When you’re out defending your country, it’s reassuring to know that the President of the United States has your back.  How else would he know where to stick his knife?

In a development that could chill the dedication of every soldier in the field, the U.S. government has refused to deny reports by the government of Afghanistan that NATO has agreed to have the soldiers who burned copies of the Quran face trial.

Last week, Afghan president Hamid Karzai demanded NATO turn over the U.S. troops to be tried in Afghanistan. President Obama subsequently sent a letter to Karzai reassuring him that the troops involved would be punished for their actions.  (Afghans: Quran-burning soldiers to face trial)

Of course, since the always transparent Obama administration has refused to release the contents of the letter, it’s hard to determine just how obsequious it was:

The White House press secretary told members of the press pool aboard Air Force One today that President Obama’s “sincere” apology to Afghan President Hamid Karzai for a Koran-burning incident “is not appropriate to show” to reporters.

An apology is in order, all right, and it’s owed to the families of the Americans murdered by Muslims in the aftermath of this incident.  The Appeaser-In-Chief should take his cue from a real American:

I want to extend my sincere condolences to the families of the Army Colonel and Major who were killed by Afghanistan security forces over this “burning Koran” episode.

If we had resolute leadership in the White House, we would have explained that these Islamic terrorist enemy combatants detained at the Parwan facility used the Koran to write jihadist messages to pass to others.

In doing so, they violated their own cultural practice and defiled the Koran and turned the Koran into contraband.

The Islamic cultural practice and Parwan detention facility procedures support burning the “contraband.”

Instead here we go again,  offering apology after apology and promising to “hold those responsible accountable.” Responsible for what?

When tolerance becomes a one-way street it leads to cultural suicide.

This time it immediately led to the deaths of two American Warriors.

America is awaiting the apology from President Hamid Karzai.

    Here is my letter to Karzia.
    We are finished with you and your idiotic barbarians.
    As of now, there will be no more financial support for the muslim extremists that are determined to kill our troops and incessantly denigrate the American way of life.
    We were willing to help you into a democracy, however, you continue to to kill us and allow the radical extremists to direct a policy that you are reluctant to oppose.
    You are very similar to the President we have.
    We have a man supposedly leading this Country into the greatest times we have ever seen.
    The intelligent people among us know better.

    When the American Troops are gone, and the Airbases are deserted, and there is no money from the US coming in, will you go back to Russia ?

    I have trouble believing that people would be dumb enough to re-elect him … but then I never thought they’d be dumb enough to elect him in the first place.

    No Tom,…the fix is not in.
    That’s what they want you to think.
    Bullies on a playground intimidate you.
    Given the fact that Obama and the progressive movement have coerced the media into only publishing favorable exposes on Obama and his lovely wife.
    Aren’t they just the most special people you ever saw ???

    They are special in the fact that they are determined to take this Country to Her knees.
    They laugh at US because they think they have the upper hand.
    The arrogance should be apparent to you by now.
    The higher the stage,…the greater the fall.

  5. Freedom, by the way says:

    What bearing does NATO have with any of this? And why the cover-up? It is not against our constitution to destroy a koran. And if one of the soldiers resposible is a muslim, that’s on his conscience. Someone will leak what’s going on.

    Nice letter, Bob.

    • NATO has bearing because it’s a NATO mission. 9/11 was an attack on a NATO members homeland. Everybody’s troops there are under NATO somehow. I’ve also read that the Germans have killed far more Afghanis than we have (probably not so tolerant). Not that it really matters.

      Very good letter, Bob.

      To clear up any misapprehension, the statement I quoted is Alan West’s as per his Facebook page. But I’ll sure co-sign it if he asks me.

    No whoever burned the books will go on trial– you bet. Obama likes major stage productions.
