    I guess Newt never saw a Disney movie. The Bad Guy is just misunderstood and all you need to do is apologize to them and extend the olive branch, then you can go solve mysteries together in Missouri.

    The extremist culture in the Middle East view apologies as a sign of weakness. Since I know we're all for respecting other cultures, we should respect theirs and ignore their request for apology and instead demand an apology for them killing thousands of our people.

    Just for fun, let's see anyone from America demand an apology, anyone who thinks an apology was warranted can hold their breath until we get that apology we demanded.

    Newt would find his politics way more acceptable in an Islamic nation.

    What exactly is the harm of apologizing? The Middle East thinks we are weak? Please.

    What is the potential benefit of apologizing? Points to the US for anybody whose opinions we care about.

    This whole attack by the right on Obama apologizing for the burning of the Korans is so weak....every time the drag someone on TV to criticize an apology is an akward experience and the charge that it in anyway makes the situation worse falls flat.

    Shows how much you know. We are in Afghanistan to win the "hearts and minds" of the Afghan people, just like GW's little escapade in Iraq. We all know how well that worked out in Iraq, it appears we won't do much better in Afghanistan. So much for the Neo-cons plan of putting "friendly Democracys" in the heart of the middle east. You didn't believe them either I hope.
    We need to withdraw our troops and leave a Drone base or 2 so we can keep pummeling Alqeada and the Taliban. Putting our troops in that region as policemen was always just NUTS. Why would we put targets in place for all those disgruntled a-holes to pick off?

    Why do you want more troops to die?

    Devoutly religious people get angry when you burn their holy book. People already upset about a foreign army occupying their country.
