Video: A personal apology to the president of Afghanistan

posted at 8:13 pm on February 24, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via Gateway Pundit. You’re going to watch this and a question is going to occur to you, so let me answer that question up front: No, we can’t nominate her instead of Romney or Santorum. C’mon — she looks much younger than 35.

But let’s check back in 2016.

Twelve more people died today because of the wholly inadvertent scorching of a couple of Korans, which may or may not be a felony in Pennsylvania by now. If you’re thinking this’ll all be behind us soon, though, well … change of plans:

The U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan sent a top secret cable to Washington last month warning that the persistence of enemy havens in Pakistan was placing the success of the U.S. strategy in Afghanistan in jeopardy, said U.S. officials.

The cable, written by Ryan C. Crocker, amounted to an admission that years of U.S. efforts to curtail insurgent activity in Pakistan by the lethal Haqqani network, a key Taliban ally, were failing. Because of the intended secrecy of that message, Crocker sent it through CIA channels, rather than normal State Department ones.

The cable, which was described by several officials familiar with its contents, could be used as ammunition by senior military officials who favor more aggressive action by the United States against the Haqqani havens in Pakistan. It also could buttress calls from senior military officials for a more-gradual withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan as the 2014 deadline for ending combat operations approaches…

“The sanctuaries are a deal-killer for the [Afghan war] strategy,” said a senior defense official, who was familiar with the current debate and who, like several officials in this story, spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive internal deliberations.

Are they a “deal-killer”? Somehow I find it hard to believe that O’s going to slow things down after (a) Panetta already mentioned reducing our combat forces a year ahead of schedule, (b) Pentagon officials have started whispering to the media about shifting from counterinsurgency to counterterrorism led by Special Ops, and (c) Americans are no doubt sicker of the war than ever after a week of watching Afghans rampage over a few burned books. He wants to be the president who brought the troops home and suddenly he has more political cover than ever to do that — with an election just eight months away. I wonder what he’ll do.

Something tells me she ain’t a neocon. None of that nation building, winning hearts and minds for her. And I noticed, she had some not so kind words for social conservatives in the muslim world.

Over all, this is the type of voter that GOP candidates need to be wooing. Not the base. F the base.

Despite the best efforts of our nitwit teachers unions, retarded network media, and uniformly leftist celebrity/entertainment culture, some young American girl has developed such a startling clarity of moral judgment and worldview that she could write and present this classic piece of opinion journalism … and it gives me hope.

So called Muslims used their Korans to plan killing and other nefarious plans. Troops found them defaced, as a result of that, with those plans and burned them. Kiss my white behind you who see this as wrong. I’ll stuff those Korans where the sun doesn’t shine. Don’t even try to use the Bible as a defense to your defense of that stinking Koran and the accompanying Hadiths. You’ll lose.

Barky is thrilled at the developments. All of his efforts went towards screwing things up so much in Afghanistan that America begged him to pull the troops out. This has all ben very obvious from the start, like when Barky called for a full strategic review of Afghanistan and then, when the review came in and the recommendation was for a surge in troops, Barky said that the review had taken 6 months to complete (duh) and was now obsolete because the conditions on the ground had changed. Basically, the retard in the White House said that the Pentagon were total idiots who knew less about what was going on in Afghanistan than the guy with the blazing 84 IQ sitting in the Oval Office.

So, what happened? America let Barky get away with that while the INdonesian Imbecile then called for another full strategic review … which also took months to make (as these reviews tend to) and returned with the same recopmmendation for a troop surge as before. Barky decided that he never needed to ask the Pentagon anything and made up his own number of troops “needed”. Great.

But, America let the despicable POS get away with it. Sad. Truly.

First of all, after you’ve apologized for something which is partly your enemy’s fault, without making the enemy’s role in the issue quite clear, all you’ve done is hearten the enemy.

If I were Mr. Obama, I’d have gone on TV with one of the more-defaced copies of the Koran and (a) apologized for our accidental burning, but made it quite clear via visual evidence that (b) the Taliban had profaned the Koran far worse than we had.

You want to put the ball into the enemy’s side of the court — put them on the defensive. The current scheme has our President cowering before Karzai and the Taliban.

I notice that said cowering doesn’t seem to be doing a thing — mainly because Obama has let the enemy seize the propaganda initiative.

hawkdriver on February 24, 2012 at 8:48 PM

And I offer these. And don’t worry, I’ve got plenty more.

Mosques are plenty, graveyards are plenty, but morals and whiskey are scarce. The Koran does not permit Mohammedans to drink. Their natural instincts do not permit them to be moral.

How they hate a Christian in Damascus! – and pretty much all over Turkeydom as well. And how they will pay for it when Russia turns her guns upon them again! It is soothing to the heart to abuse England and France for interposing to save the Ottoman Empire from the destruction it has so richly deserved for a thousand years. It hurts my vanity to see these pagans refuse to eat of food that has been cooked for us; or to eat from a dish we have eaten from; or to drink from a goatskin which we have polluted with our Christian lips, except by filtering the water through a rag which they put over the mouth of it or through a sponge! I never disliked a Chinaman as I do these degraded Turks and Arabs, and when Russia is ready to war with them again, I hope England and France will not find it good breeding or good judgment to interfere.

Mark Twain’s evaluation of Muslims would be too candid for many sensitive ears today. The onus of political correctness nowadays stifles honest observation and truthful judgment regarding low-classed people. It is now the custom to deny inferiority by using euphemistic, white-washed language that speaks of depraved savages as being merely deprived.

The fact of the matter is that Muslim rule still means oppression and stifled progress. One has only to contrast the desolation of the Palestine of Mark Twain’s era to the productive fertility of Israel today to see that the right kind of people in a land can make a vast difference in its prosperity and its enlightened spirit.
