Hillary: These Republicans are inflaming the situation in Afghanistan by criticizing Obama for apologizing

posted at 9:28 pm on February 27, 2012 by Allahpundit

I can see why she’s “somewhat troubled.” If there’s one thing the Democratic Party stood for between 2003 and 2008, it’s the principle that the opposition party should tread lightly when criticizing the president lest it inflame opinion abroad.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton defended President Obama’s apology to Afghan President Hamid Karzai and warned that the GOP’s condemnation of the apology could further “inflame” the situation.

Last week, U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan accidentally burned some Qurans, which sparked deadly protests in the country. Obama apologized to Karzai for the “unintentionally mishandled” books – a move that has been criticized by some Republicans.

“I find it somewhat troubling that our politics would inflame such a dangerous situation in Afghanistan,” Clinton told CNN on Monday.

Which Republican soundbite, I wonder, does she think has “inflamed” a situation that’s already inspired Afghan lunatics to launch suicide attacks on NATO bases and shoot American troops point blank in the head? I haven’t heard of a single case of someone abroad grumbling about Newt Gingrich’s rhetoric; I have read a lot of quotes from Muslims venting their rage at infidels who would dare disrespect Islam by burning the Koran. A choice bit of opportunistic propaganda from the leader of Iran’s brownshirts:

“The US has committed such an ugly action and burnt Quran because of the heavy slap it has been given by Islam,” Commander of Iran’s Basij (volunteer) force Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi said on Saturday.

He stressed Muslims’ sensitivity to the crimes underway in Afghanistan by the US forces, and said Muslims do not accept the US apology, because it makes numerous military mistakes and then just asks for the Afghans’ apology, and this is not acceptable.

“Nothing but burning the White House can relieve the wound of us, the Muslims, caused by the Burning of Quran in the US,” he underscored.

“Their apology can be accepted only by hanging their commanders; hanging their commanders means an apology,” he reiterated.

At best, the repeated apologies have been ineffective; at worst, they’re a pretext for cretins like this to further incite the masses. Although, in fairness to him, the apologies are insincere: As always when the world scrambles to condemn an affront to Islam, the urgency is driven not by “sensitivity” but by fear that innocents will start dying if proper respect isn’t quickly paid. The fact that there have been so many apologies this time — one from the president, one from the top NATO commander, and one from a Pentagon official to Muslims in Washington — is ironically proof of how insincere it all is, a frantic means to the end of getting people to calm down already. (Remember, while Obama was quick to apologize for burned books, he still hasn’t apologized yet for those NATO airstrikes that killed more than 25 Pakistani troops. Simple math: The death toll from the former is likely to exceed the latter, if it hasn’t already, so he’s forced to move fast.) If some Afghan mufti could give O a hard and fast number of apologies that would, guaranteed, get people out of the streets, I’m sure he’d comply in check-the-box fashion simply in order to save lives. Which is to say, there’s no real “respect” being paid with all this groveling. Respect for Muslim sensibilities shrinks worldwide with each new rampage. But arguably — arguably — it’s the best way to minimize the amount of bloodletting. See Krauthammer in the second clip below for a counterargument to that.

Anyway, don’t take Hillary’s nonsense personally. By now you should know that anytime an aggrieved lunatic runs amok, if Democrats can use it to scapegoat the right, they will. Just how they roll.

Update: A commenter reminds me of this golden oldie soundbite.

Offend Christians and Jews: No Problem

Offend Muslims: Big Problem

Michael Isikoff’s lie about round toilets-square Qur’ans: No Problem

Republicans criticise Obama’s apology to the corrupt Karzai: Big Problem

Obama’s military burns Qur’ans in Afghanistan: Members of a misogynistic, homophobic, child-abusing, maniacal, homicidal, suicidal, totalitarian, 7th century death cult go on a rampage killing Americans and others and Obama apologises.

Obama’s military burns Bibles in Afghanistan: Shut up! No problem. No apology will be forthcoming.

19 of the top 20 countries in the world in terms of religious persecution are Muslim, but it is the West that is oppressive and intolerant. Yeah, right.

As an aside: In the Neanderthals’ defence and I say this as a woman, there is something to be said about taking Hillary out of the pantsuits and putting her in a full burq’a.

People need to get thier facts straight about this. They make it out that they took the Korans from these prisoners and burned them. That’s not the case according to Congressman Allen West.

This is a statement that I pulled from congressman Allen West’s FB page about the burning of the Koran. It’s interesting how the media…all of them, have left out the most important part of this story. Read below.

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.

“I find it somewhat troubling that our politics would inflame such a dangerous situation in Afghanistan,” Clinton told CNN on Monday.

If this statement by Hillary is true…
…..then the democrats have the blood of thousands of US Soldiers on their hands for their “political inflaming” during the Bush Presidency.

You can’t have it both ways liberals.

Baxter Greene on February 27, 2012 at 10:34 PM

I haven’t seen one objective post yet stating if she’s right or wrong.

I’ll start: Even if you the GOP candidates disagree with the apologies, I think it was mistake to publicly criticize the admin on it. I think Sarah started it, then Newt followed. It was of bad taste. So Hilary has a point.

What do you guys think?

I’m off of it for now. The offer stands, but I like commenting here too much to risk it over the “hammer.” J-Break and the $100,000 it isn’t going to show up with anyway is not worth it. I think I made my point.

What in the world does anyone’s twitter feed have to do with HotAir?

Cindy Munford on February 27, 2012 at 10:29 PM

Cindy, his name is linked to a twitter feed where he has the most digusting I stuff I have ever read in my life…well, since junior high school at least.

Look, Im done with it, but I think the powers that be should check out MadisonConservative’s twitter feed and determine if they want HotAir having a commentator using that kind of “violent rape language” about an elderly woman who happens to be married to a political candidate that, apparently, doesnt care for too much.

Thats all I am saying on this. I am done.

So dissent is the highest form of patriotism-until it isn’t.

“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”- Orwell, 1984.

If you think that politics stops at the waters edge, then yes, she’s right. However, when the POTUS has a chronic and trenchant tendency to apologize to f**ksticks that we oughta be stompin’ mudholes in rather than apologizing to, then hells no, you’re wrong. Sorry here, America been arrogant there, yada yada–we’re fed up with it—how about telling Karzai to get f**king bent and remindin’ him that we’ve spent 10 years trying to straighten his jacked up country out, and most of that time has been spent sorely lacking his incompetent help.

oops, sorry Karzai, let me smack you upside the other side of the head.

Then why the F are we still there!? We don’t know how to take no for an answer, so maybe they saw this as an opportunity to tell us to get the F out. Why do we have to force ourselves on to people who don’t want or think they need to change? 4 Trill later…. this is why independent like will NEVER see eye to eye with conservatives on foreign policy. Ideology trumps logic. That’s F’n EXPENSIVE way to govern!

Why did the world need to know about the apology? I find it impossible to believe that we have been bending over backwards not to offended these people for ten years and we have never had to dispose of desecrated Korans before? Why weren’t Muslims in charge of the procedure? I just think this is b.s..

liberal4life on February 27, 2012 at 9:34 PM

Under Hillary’s watch:

…we have watched relations with Pakistan be destroyed.

………..we have launched a war without Congressional approval against an oil rich nation that did not attack us and posed no imminent threat.
………Libya now is in the hands of the jihadist with al-qaeda gaining strength there.

………….Israel/Palestinian relations have deteriorated badly with no peace in sight.

……Iran has gotten even closer to a Nuclear weapon and is more belligerent than ever.

…..Egypt has fallen into the hands of the jihadist with 80% of the government run by the Muslim brotherhood and Salfist.(Ironically…Hillary announced days before the fall of Mubarak that “the Egyptian government is stable”)

……A stabilized Iraq that just got done forming a democratic government was abandoned by this administration….troops pulled out….and now wide open for Iran to gain major influence and control.

…………..the Afghanistan war is in full retreat.

……Hillary backed a marxist to gain power in Honduras.

China/Russia have increased their economic and military relations with the latin world/Asia and have gained major influence in Pakistan…the country we have been sending billions to.

Russia has consistently made a fool of Obama…watching him give in to their demands and then thumb their nose’s at us in the UN and on the world stage.
Some “reset”.

So please liberals…
……………let’s see some proof that Hillary is the “smart” person you claim she is.

hillary may be one smart woman, but Obama rolled her up like a cheap rug…..

gave her a job her ego couldn’t refuse, then rendered her utterly powerless within it. She climbed into the cage and locked the door behind her, and Obama sweet talked her into doin’ it.

standin’ by her man.

ted c on February 27, 2012 at 10:54 PM

Good God, Y’all. Who told Obama it would be a good idea to apologize for US troops disposing Qurans that the detainees THEMSELVES defaced? Apologizing? This is exactly the unserious sort of response that will go over just as exactly as it has—the blood of my brothers and sisters. This just in: people in other cultures react to cultural cues differently. For an administration that seems to pride itself on being multicultural, they all are sure a big bunch of dummies.
