I’m Having an Apocalypse Now Moment

The insanity of the war in Afghanistan has reached boiling:

“President Barack Obama apologized to Afghan President Hamid Karzai for the burning of Qurans by NATO troops…”We will take the appropriate steps to avoid any recurrence, including holding accountable those responsible,” Obama said in the letter.

We need to bring our main force home, soon.

Taliban urge Muslims to kill NATO troops over Quran burning – CNN.com

The Taliban in Afghanistan called on Muslims Thursday to attack NATO military bases and kill its soldiers as demonstrations over Quran burning intensified.

The gunmen opened fire after calls from Taliban insurgents to attack U.S. military bases in revenge attacks for U.S. troops setting fire to the Muslim holy books.

Meanwhile, more government-sponsored politically correct insanity: FBI removes hundreds of training documents after probe on treatment of Islam

The FBI has removed hundreds of counterterrorism training documents after a months-long review found inaccuracies and other problems in their description of Muslims.

Obama apologizes for the inadvertent Koran burning this week; now the U.S. trained and protected Afghan Army can apologize for killing two of our soldiers yesterday.

This is too ridiculous for me to not show this. Here’s a screen shot from the CNN homepage. Notice at the top…

“Breaking news, two U.S. troops killed in Aghanistan as Afghans protest Quran burnings outside their base”

…Then compare that to the top headline on the left…

“Obama apologizes over Afghanistan Quran burnings”

…Do you notice something awry here? We have Qurans being burned on one side, and American solders (people) being killed on the other, yet our President apologizes over the Quran’s. I understand diplomacy but what is more important here, American lives or Qurans? We’ve apologized for burning the Quran’s but are we to expect an apology from the Afghani ruling class over committing murder? Something tells me that we won’t, thus giving us the proverbial sly grin as though we somehow deserved it. This tragedy is a microcosm for what has characterized the radical Islamists in Afghanistan during this entire operation; blatant overreactions to an otherwise foolish decision…
