#1 Did he really need to call them "the noble people of Afghanistan"? You mean, the people who crap of the roofs of their own homes?

#2 Burning other religious books however is mandated by the US military in Afghanistan.

Afghan and international media reported that as many as 2,000 protesters had gathered near the base. According to The Associated Press, Afghan police said protesters shouted “Die, die, foreigners!”

After 9/11 the US took the high road and never properly defeated and/or punished the Afghans, hence their utter lack of fear and respect.

“I offer my sincere apologies for any offense this may have caused, to the President of Afghanistan, the Government of the Islamofascistic Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, and most importantly, to the treacherous murderous noble people of Afghanistan.”

Since rejecting and disrespecting the Koran or other religious symbols is perfectly legal protected speech in the US, this profuse apology is misleading...

unless acceptance of Rushdie rules for non-muslims in the West is now the official policy of ISAF.

#3 What is proper disposal of the Quran? What do the holy men speak over the book?

#4 Isn't the reason we are there is that about 19 people read that book and then flew fully loaded passenger planes into fully occupied buildings in New York City? And now our Generals are apologizing in regards to how American soldiers handled that book?

We just lost the war!

#5 It's the PC BS running rampant in the U.S. and other places that most ordinary Americans despise. Some people look for reasons to get bent out of shape about nothing.
