    I disagree. While an apology may not be exactly warranted in this case, condolences and perhaps blood money is

    The comparison of killing military to killing defenseless civilians is a ridiculously false one.

    The only thing Obama needs to do is grow a pair, say **** this to Karzai and pull our troops out. Now.
    Honorable people and nations apologize when they or someone officially representing them commits callous acts outside the scope of war. This act was completely outside of that scope. And I personally think not being so prideful and unable to acknowledge wrong so that you can apologize is "growing a pair". It's being unable to recognize and acknowledge wrong that makes one a coward.

    ... we went into Afghanistan... took out the Taliban, killed Bin Laden, gave them billions in aid when we have millions of Americans hungry - and they're mad about this? Well **** them. Time to peace out.

    They should be upset, these individuals were in no way related to the liberation effort. Good deeds and our humanitarian nature don't absolve responsibility and blame when heinous acts like this occur.

    Yeah. If someone provided police protection for my family, gave me a crap ton of money, got rid of my enemies and then shot my mother in the face, I'd be pretty upset.

    Are you saying they should thank America for this murderous thug?

    either way, when bad things are done by ones own country people are willing to accept it more then when done by a foreign occupying power

    Who were the, "civilians", exactly?

    They might have been Taliban supporters/sympathizers/operatives and needed killin'.

    You're suggesting that anyone who supports or sympathizes with the Taliban should be killed? Not to mention the fact that they were killed in their homes not in conflict with our troops and there were reportedly women and children among the victims.
