    Re: Gingrich Slams Obama for Koran Apology

    I agree a little bit with Newt, but probably for different reasons. We knew from experience that some **** was going to hit the fan if it was true. Just deny it. Let somebody prove there were Korans in that pile of stuff.

    "Korans? What Korans? I didn't see any Korans. Did you see any Korans, General? Nope, the General didn't see any Korans either..."

    I wish the President would have explained more on what actually happened rather than just an apology. I am not convinced our troops did anything wrong.


    I don't think the apology worked.

    I wasn't aware this was a popularity contest. I was under the impression we had a job to do... you know.... like strategic objectives and stuff.

    Religious bigotry is not really a position the United States should be embracing. It's bad enough that Bush evoked Crusade imagery about our wars in the Middle East. There's a definite perception, both over there and over here, that the US is involved in a religious war with Islam. Let's not stupidly help that perception along.

    Besides, a real leader needs to swallow his pride for the good of the country. A candidate can say this, but a president needs to know better.

    I really don't see what's wrong with demanding an apology from karzai over this and threatening to cut aid money if this nonsense doesn't stop immediately.

    Karzai doesn't really control the violent people...more so the other way around.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I'm sure the Muslims who are burning out flag will be calmed by this. NOT.

    What I fail to understand is why everybody on the left cares so much. Who cares what people in other countries think of us. Let the military do their job. Support the troops.

    I don't even care what people in THIS country think of me. Do you think I give a rat's ass what some goat herders in Afghanistan think about our military?
