[Obama apologizes for the massacre of 16 Afghan civilians by U.S. soldiers.]

I know that the Islamist-fascists mentality is to demand from the West to bow all the way, apologize almost till embarrassing tears, and even creeping lie to kiss their boots. Too bad, Obama and the like do go the destructive appeasement path, we have seen dozens massacred at the wake of his repeated apologies for an accidental burning of some book that Muslims consider as "holy."
All the while Afghans were on a rampage, (not merely offending us, but real raw crude Islamic holy crimes of murder) not one sincere loud apology came from the Islamic side.

What Obama is never taking into account is OUR feelings. What about Americans and other non-Muslims' feelings, where is their honor while he trashes everything on the way to his Islam-reveration? No we hear that a US soldier kills some Afghans, What does Obama do? You guessed it right, apologize again, what else does this week guy with total self-American respect ever know to do.

That's RIGHT. We haven't heard an apology from the Afghans for their crimes. We've apologized for OUR crimes because we're BETTER than them.

I'm positive you don't understand. You people are disgusting.

So you're saying murdering innocent people in foreign countries is OK? Imagine if someone did that in a trading partner with the US like the UK or Japan. Do you still think it's wrong to apologize?

3/18/2012 5:21:05 AM


The American guy killed 9 children in that rampage. Why shouldn't we apologize?

3/18/2012 5:25:21 AM


Bottom line, that soldier shouldn't have done what he did. Over the next few months/years we hope to learn more about why he did it and his overall mental state. There likely will be some indictment of some aspect of his military conscription (be it the process by which he was enabled to enroll, to being there for too long/too often, or maybe anti-Islam sentiment among his battalion or his immediate commanders), but whatever mitigating factors might be involved, HE WAS STILL WRONG FOR DOING WHAT HE DID.

It's only a just and decent thing to apologize.

But what are Americans' and other non-Muslims' feelings about a gratuitous killing spree?
Sane people are either sorry or angry about it.
You are hurt that your country is not gloating about spawning one more madman? My freeper friend, you need to accept that you are a marginal. You belong to a narrow, strange minority that cannot speak for its country or even immediate community. If you can function in society despite your unsettling mental condition, great, but you would be wiser to stay out of any politics.

Thing is, American soldiers have just committed war crimes. American soldiers are not supposed to commit war crimes. If we really cared about the completely noble goal of overthrowing the Taliban, then this massacre would never have occurred. Now the entire nation of Afghanistan is suffering from short-term memory loss and siding with the Taliban again. And it is entirely our fault because Americans will never, ever accept brown people as their equals. Some parts of the world will never be free from tyranny. Afghanistan is one of them because the would-be liberators deliberately sabotage the process. There is absolutely no hope for the Middle East, so let's leave.

And you think the US would be more respected if some loonie US soldier slaughtered a bunch of innocent people and Obama didn't apologize?

3/18/2012 7:55:16 AM


Reveration? As in, "LP records had 33 1/2 reverations per minute"? Meanwhile, the day and hour Afghanistan is occupying our country and randomly killing, imprisoning, and abusing our nationals, we can demand they apologize. Till then, I think the demand is ill-placed.

3/18/2012 8:29:32 AM


Some out of control jarhead kills sixteen innocent (and sleeping) Afghanis and you think it's the Afghanis that need to apologize? You're one sick fuck.
You're upset because Obama and the Afghanis hurt YOUR feelings? Fuck you with a barge pole. You can cry me a river when some out of control soldier invades your house a night an proceeds to exterminate every member of your family.

3/18/2012 8:30:33 AM


Our soldiers butchered a group of non-combatant innocents. Apologizing is the least we can do and, I feel, less than we should.

3/18/2012 8:32:00 AM


Any civilized person knows that if you do something wrong then you must apologise. This simple rule doesn't seem to compute for freerep posters.

3/18/2012 9:11:07 AM

Killing women and children is a crime. A crime is a bad thing and it's logical to apologise. Where is the problem?

3/18/2012 9:13:56 AM

You're right. We shouldn't apologize. We should hand the war crime perpetrator over to be tried by the Afghans.

One soldier got out of line and went on a killing spree among innocent civilians making all Americans look bad. Obama is just trying to make sure no one retaliates over the actions of one jerkass.

3/18/2012 10:07:08 AM


I think at this point we should withdraw from Afghanistan (and possibly invade Syria).

Also, what disturbed me is that the Afgan citizens were allegedly LESS upset about these killings than they were about the Qu'ran burnings.

3/18/2012 11:02:16 AM


If you don't want to spend time apologizing for killing people in foreign lands you could just take your soldiers and fuck off back to America and stay there!!

It's called humility. You, as a Christian, are supposed to know what that means.

3/18/2012 1:39:52 PM


Your feelings aren't taken into account because they are utterly irrelevant at everything practical.

I never noticed Obama's reveration before. Maybe he needs a better tailor.

@ skatepunk:
They probably expect military types to massacre people like that, given the history of the area, but I doubt they've had to deal with their personal beliefs under attack in such a way. Not that it isn't still unsettling, but that seems to be the most logical explanation I can think of.

3/18/2012 6:51:55 PM


Well, just goes to show that you're just in the level of those people you hate.

3/18/2012 7:35:25 PM


What would this guy be saying if a an Afghan army occupied America, burned some Bibles and one of them randomly went into a house and shot a bunch of women and children? I suspect he'd be saying something different.

3/18/2012 8:06:51 PM


What Obama is never taking into account is OUR feelings.

So you're cool with nutty soldiers committing murder, as long as they're OUR soldiers?

You don't think the people who run our military should need to apologize when one of their own men goes off the reservation and decides to off a bunch of foreign civilians for no readily apparent reason?

3/18/2012 8:21:09 PM


"But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also... You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you... Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect."

Jesus Fucking Christ, Matthew 5. You'd think a Christian of all people would get this stuff. But I guess you're just demonstrating by example how much smarter than you, more moral than you, and more knowledgeable about your own goddamn book than you we atheists are. Thanks for that.

People. DIED! Children. DIED! CHILDREN! There is never an excuse to kill living, thinking children! Little kids! KIDS! Do you understand, PRePublic? Defenceless children were murdered! Who cares what religion they follow? Children are children, and frankly, I find it abhorrent, disgusting and disturbing that you don't seem to care that adults and CHILDREN were MURDERED! *BRAIN SHUTS DOWN*
