Obama on Afghanistan: My apology for the Koran-burning calmed things down

posted at 8:20 pm on February 29, 2012 by Allahpundit

Skip to 3:30 for the key bit. I actually like this answer, even though the “calmed things down” bit is nonsense in the same way that the infamous “jobs created or saved” metric for the stimulus was. There’s no way to tell what would have happened without O’s apology. In fact, the riots went on for several more days after it was made public on February 23, punctuated by the murders of two U.S. officers inside the Interior Ministry in Kabul on Saturday, February 25. Would things have been worse if “only” Gen. Allen had said sorry? Who knows? But as I say, I like his answer — not for what it includes but for what it doesn’t. There’s no pretense here of being truly sorry for having offended Afghans’ cultural sensibilities or of apologizing because it’s the righteous thing to do. When asked, he says he did it to save lives, full stop. It was a means to an end. This is as close as we’re apt to get to an admission by O or his diplomatic deputies of the point I made yesterday, that the fulsome respect paid when Islam is insulted in a high-profile way has little to do with genuine sensitivity and everything to do with managing the death toll. If we’re going to have a global double standard on blasphemy, let’s at least be honest as to why. He’s a little more honest here than western politicians usually are. Now let’s see what he does on the not one, not two, but three separate investigations of the Koran-burning that are currently ongoing in Afghanistan. If the news reports of what happened are correctly, the guys who burned them are probably guilty of nothing worse than some form of negligence. How severely will they be scapegoated beyond that? Given that “sensitivity” now requires barring all non-Muslim U.S. troops from requesting a copy of the Koran from their military chaplain, I’m not optimistic.

If you have the stomach for it, go watch Scott Pelley put Gen. Allen and Ryan Crocker through the wringer for 11 minutes on Koran-gate. Since I lack the stomach, I’m not embedding it here. Exit question via Blackfive:

Oh, yeah, he “calmed things down,” all right. I’m overwhelmed by the gargantuon size of his megabrain and big bowing. Just huge, isn’t he?

The lesson is that If you want Obama to play nice and sweet with you, kill some people.

Buddahpundit on February 29, 2012 at 8:26 PM

But as I say, I like his answer — not for what it includes but for what it doesn’t.

Well this should do wonders for you street cred, Allah.

cynccook on February 29, 2012 at 8:26 PM

Meanwhile, does Obama know that Americans amid other human beings have lost their lives to the brutes (who are Muslim) in the rest of the world?

Calmed things down, only some beheadings. Yeah, right, calm all right.

Osama’s “hey I calmed things down” is about as convincing as Holder’s “hey I stopped F&F”. Keep talking, Obama. Every time you open your mouth you solidify the GOP base against you in Nov.

On a side note, congrats to Hot Air’s Tina, as Drudge’s main story links to her story on Newt’s re-rise.

Tell that to the families of the two dead officers. Do you think he will attend their funerals and tell them how much he calmed things down?

This latest bowing by Obama puts icing on the announcement to the world as to when he was going to remove US military from Afghanistan. Just a bit of an extra help to the Taliban from Obama, with a big kiss from one of their boys.

KOOLAID2 on February 29, 2012 at 8:31 PM

It depends on what offends Americans the most. Obama likes to find whoever has been the most offensive to the USA and apologize to them. It’s the same thing as his wife running around in the White House without regard for the expensive furnishings: it’s all about how much “fun” they’re having entertaining themselves, making us mean ole Americans uncomfortable or at least, compromised in our patience.

You know the guy who keys your new car? That’s Obama.

That is at least acceptable. I was trying to save lives because we all know how these savages behave when you offend their sensibilities. I don’t agree with his need to appease them instead of mowing down murderous idiots, but I am ok with his reasoning.

We are no where near so sensitive and caring as the mujahideen of the Muslim world. I am just thankful that the Korans in question were only accidentally ignited. And I kneel alongside President Obama in praying that they do not kill us as a consequence. We are but simple Americans who sometimes go overboard in defending our own. Sorry.

I am strongly urging all Zionist and Christian forces who are supporting the infidel troops who desecrated and burned the Holy Qur’an to submit immediately. Otherwise, we will hold them responsible for their actions. Any attempt to fight the Islamic Holy forces of Allah is pointless. We are committed to putting all of the world under our jurisdiction. You cannot overcome the Islamic Holy Forces of Allah now that we have our brother, Imam Hussein Obama, in control of your country including it’s military. Any individual or group that tries to fight the Islamic Holy Forces of Allah will now be humiliated at the White House and then investigated by our brother Imam Eric Holder.. With the help of our brother, Imam Hussein Obama, the Islamic Holy Forces of Allah will easily overcome the infidel troops and their Zionist, Christian and HotGas stooges. Allah willing.

All reading this must also throw their full personal support as well as that of all of the internet behind the U.N. resolution passed in December of two years ago prohibiting defamation of Islam including making such defamation a crime under international law. You must all call for turning over to us all the troops who burned a Holy Qur’an for just punishment. You must also call for the expulsion of all Jews from Palestine so that Muslims can once again return to their rightful homeland there. You must also denounce all of the Crusades and demand that reparations be paid to Muslims and all the land in Europe that was stolen from them be returned. You must also agree to meet all of the demands that Muslims may make in the future. Allah willing.

The great dream of Islam will come true. Muslims dream to see flags that read: “There is no God but Allah” fluttering in the wind over the White House, the Pentagon, Downing Street, the Hague, the Temple Mount and Haram al-Sharif, and over HotGas, Allah willing.

Dear President Karzai. Long have you suffered. One can only imagine the bank account you have been left with for your efforts. Rest assured that the little people of Afghanistan appreciate your sacrifices. And if you can find it in your black Muslim heart, please forgive us, because we never meant you or the Afghan people, by and large, to suffer in any way for the tragic incidents in Washington, New York and rural Pennsylvania on September 11, 2001. It wasn’t your fault. It was just America’s chickens coming home to roost (as our president’s minister of twenty years put it). Anyway, please be careful during the upcoming military coupe that will accompany our withdrawal from you splendid little country, and do please pay us a visit if you ever develop a tricky tumor. We’ll be glad to cut it out for you, free of charge.

profitsbeard on February 29, 2012 at 10:19 PM

The clever response to this affair would be for America to accuse Muslims of “shirk”. That is idolatry in Islam. It is putting a material thing up for worship. Shirk is anathema for the Wahabbists who have been doing things in Soddy like converting Mohammeds mothers tomb into a public toilet so that she may not be worshiped which would be shirk. Their phobia about the sanctity of Mohammed should also be addressed as shirk. This accusation would stop them in their tracks. Do an Alinsky on them.

I doubt any Muslim american adviser would promote such an idea to those running the sinking ship.

BL@KBIRD on February 29, 2012 at 10:22 PM

Strictly speaking, that’s not exactly true. ‘Shirk’ is the Arabic verb ‘to associate.’ The related word ‘Mushirkun’ is the Arabic word for ‘the associators’ or ‘those who associate.’ In an Islamic context, it applies to all non-Muslims, not just idol worshipers. Shirk is considered the most egregious offense in the Islamic system. The term represents a weird, round-about way of calling someone a non-Muslim. The idea is that a person who is guilty of shirk is guilty of ‘associating’ things with the one true god, Allah, with things other than Allah. So, for example, to a Muslim, a Christian would be guilty of shirk because they “associate” the idea of the “false” Christian concept of God with the one “true” god, Allah. Even an atheist (in a Western, secular sense) is guilty of shirk because they associate the idea of ‘nothingness’ with the idea of the one true god, Allah. It makes very little sense to a sane person, but this is how the musloids are hard-wired to think.

If we were to accuse them of shirk, we would not be accusing them of idolatry, we’d be accusing them of being non-Muslim. To which their response would be a blank stare followed by continued riots and beheadings.

Unfortunately, there is no ‘clever’ way to deal with Muslims. They are like robots programmed to do nothing but fight non-Muslims until the entire world is under totalitarian Islamic law. Literally, the only thing their ideology allows them to understand from non-Muslims is a demonstration of non-Muslim superior strength. That is the one time they are allowed, according to the Islamic doctrines, to chill out, and wait to fight another day. But that is exactly the opposite message we are sending them with these pathetic apologies. In other words, Obama is practically begging them to step up the attacks against us. How conscious he is of this, I can’t say for certain. But I err on the side of assuming he’s conscious of it.

WhatSlushfund on February 29, 2012 at 11:46 PM

But as I say, I like his answer — not for what it includes but for what it doesn’t. There’s no pretense here of being truly sorry for having offended Afghans’ cultural sensibilities or of apologizing because it’s the righteous thing to do. When asked, he says he did it to save lives, full stop. It was a means to an end.

You must really have loved the Munich Agreement.
