Burning ANY state symbol is wrong!

Koran VS US Flag
It now appears that we, the US, have to apologize and suffer casualties over the burning of a significant “symbol” of a particular nation. While the burning of some copies of the Koran in Afghanistan, sparked a Afghan soldier to kill two American soldiers and flee into a crowd.

Obama expresses ‘deep regret’ over Koran burning

US President Barack Obama sent Afghan President Hamid Karzai a letter of apology over the burning of copies of the Koran overseen by a US officer at a US military base, Karzai’s office said Thursday. Obama said the incident was unintentional and pledged a full investigation, the president’s office said, as fierce anti-US protests swept the nation in which at least 14 people have died, including two American soldiers.

But if our US flag, a significant “symbol” of our nation, is burned or desecrated we are not entitled to do the same. Just how ignorant is that. And without apology at any time! Since when did they get to be so special? And on top of that the killing of the two AMERICAN soldiers. And at no time has there been any response from President Karzai for any investigation into this killing of American soldiers by one of his own ANA soldiers! Not an ordinary Afghan but a soldier in their Army!

AFP – Nine killed in Afghan protests over Koran burning

The US commander in Afghanistan, General John Allen, apologized and ordered an investigation, admitting that religious materials, including Korans “were inadvertently taken to an incineration facility”. Allen and US Deputy Defense Secretary Ashton Carter called on Afghan President Hamid Karzai Wednesday to apologized again for the incident at Bagram airbase north of Kabul, the president’s office said. Karzai asked Allen to cooperate fully with a government investigation and told him to “make sure that such incidents do not happen again in future”, a statement said.Karzai also urged the US military to speed up a transfer to Afghan control of the controversial US-controlled prison at Bagram, sometimes known as Afghanistan’s Guantanamo Bay. “The sooner you do the transfer of the prison, the fewer problems and unfortunate incidents you will have,” the president told Carter.

You need to make a special note that President Karsai is doing all the talking about cooperation and what WE should do. Along with us apologizing for the incident. Doesn’t seem to be any concern on his part for the loss of life of the American soldiers.

What a pile of crap that is! Seems like we need to tell these asshats to bugger off!

Just one mans opinion! MINE! BzeroB
