President Obama’s embarrassment for this country caused him to write a letter of apology to Afghan president Hamid Karzai over the burning of copies of the Koran by a US military officer. An insignificant incident arising from ignorance and stupidity brings violent outrage from those who are far too easily outraged, and Obama feels the need to personally apologize. Who, exactly is he representing with this apology?
Karzai has not apologized for the stupid and violent anti-US protests over this unfortunate incident, resulting in at least 14 people dead. He never apologized when there were riots and violent protests over a few silly cartoons. He hasn’t apologized for wanting the US out of his country after Americans died for his country’s welfare. He hasn’t apologized for the Afghan soldier who turned his weapon on US soldiers during one of these recent protests, killing two.
Where are the Mideast letters of apology over the beheadings, kidnappings, suicide bombings, and hatred toward Israel and the US? Have there been apologies for persecuting Christians and burning churches? Where are the letters of apology from Pakistan for harboring Bin Laden? Will Iran apologize for playing Obama like a puppet?
Obama doesn’t feel the need to apologize to outraged Christians for his recent health care decision forcing insurance coverage of contraception and abortions. He hasn’t apologized to the American people for the high gas prices resulting from his “green” policies or for the jobs lost due to his refusal of the Keystone Pipeline (which he now disingenuously blames on Republicans). He hasn’t apologized for his administration’s increased debt that will be passed on to our grandchildren. He certainly won’t apologize for reneging on campaign promises to those who voted for him.
No. Obama does not apologize to the American People for anything because that goes against the grain of anyone weaned in an anti-American atmosphere. The US is always in the wrong and everyone else is a victim – and Obama is conditioned to apologize for it all.
Sure, we need another four years of this.
