The proper way to apologize to President Karzai

You may have heard of a recent ruckus in Afghanistan after American forces burned some Qurans that prisoners were using to transmit coded messages. (1) In the ensuing demonstration of Muslim maturity and Afghan civility, two Americans were killed. So, President Obama did the proper thing (2) and apologized abjectly and profusely to Afghan President Karzai. (3)

This inspired YouTube user KiraDavis422 to issue her own apology. I think it’s something we Americans need to hear and think deeply about.

(Mild language warning.)

Food for thought, isn’t it?

RELATED: Max Boot, an analyst and writer I deeply respect, thinks Obama’s apology was proper. I respectfully disagree, at least with the groveling nature of it.

Footnotes:
(1) In violation of proper procedure, meaning they did it where the savages could find out.
(2) From a self-abasing, American-declinist, “smart power” point of view, at least.
(3) Whom we put in power and only remains in power (and alive) because of us. We apologize for that.

    She’s nicer than I would’ve been.
    Seriously, I’m incensed about this.

    Oh I much, much prefer Kira Davis’ apology to our own groveling President’s apology. After waking up this morning to the news that two NATO officers were murdered right inside one of Karzai’s government Ministries today, there should have been NO apology as far as I’m concerned.

    It’s high time to realize we cannot drag a bunch of Stone Age cavemen into the 21st century, no matter how hard we try. Leave their land that time forgot and let them go back to what they do best – living in caves and killing each other. And before we leave, drop Karzai deep inside Taliban held territory and leave him.

    She is spot on. And I agree with Sefton, I would not be half as polite.

  4. Carlos says:

    Personally, in order to honor the thousands of Americans who have died there I think we ought to give the creep president (Afghanistani, not American) a 24-hour notice, and take every American out of the country immediately.

    That would leave that pitiful excuse for humanity to their own devices and savagery, and the honor to all those who gave the ultimate sacrifice there would be that no more Americans would uselessly die there.

    Oh, and one more thing: keep an eye in the sky, and whenever the savages started up a new training camp for terrorists (like before 9/11) use a tactical nuke on it. That would eliminate anyone within a certain distance, and prevent the area from being used again for a while.

  5. Drew the Infidel says:

    For some reason I got no audio but my “apology” to Karzai would be, “Kiss my ass and call me Charlie.”

  6. Ken66 says:

    My kind of apology. Coward in chief notwithstanding.

    Sis? We did handle this whole situation improperly, shame on us. According to the strictures of Islamic Law any person defiling a Qur’an must be publicly beheaded. We failed to follow their law, and are continuing to fail to enforce THEIR law on THEM. The Muslim terrorist prisoners who desecrated those Qur’ans must be publicly beheaded, THEN we can burn, in accordance with Islamic Law, the desecrated Qur’an, all according to THEIR laws.

    We have failed to enforce their laws upon them, and it is high time we did our Christian duty and forced them to live STRICTLY and without exceptions or mercy by their laws.

    Silly girl. Although I agree that this man and this backward nation deserves much criticiam we must remember that we still have thousands of our young men and women over there in harms wy. The bible says that you are to agree with your adversary while you are in the way with them. Throw your insults when they can’t take it out on are solders who are still there.
