About one of the few things Bush has done right these past few years.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

has done right these past few years" Yes, as long as Infidel European and American leaders say sorry for any offense to Muslims its the right thing to do..?

Now, go and do a google search, type in "Muslims burn bibles" and "Muslims call for the death of Christians - including their respective militaries, and then tell me how many Muslim leaders came out and said sorry...

Skip - how many Muslim nations have invaded sovereign nations based on a pack of lies in the last 50 years?

Bush wouldn't be apologizing for this incident if he hadn't ordered the invasion of Iraq in the first place.

sushi: why do you only go back to 50 years? And you are using country?, Muslims have invaded several countries in the last few years, some by proxy and others will puppets...

What what has that got to do with it anyway? You have European countries practically kissing Muslim's feet apologizing for cartoon, words, etc.. and they didn't invade Iraq..

And, I have no objection to an apology per say, but if you are going to look at this that it is deserved, then I do believe Muslim leaders/clerics need to a LOT of apologizing. be headings of Christians, causing wars and famine in sovereign nations, replacing non-religious governments with Islamic/Shiia governments, death threats, etc.. So, you still think Muslims are the only innocent people left on the planet?

Certainly many Islamic leaders need to do their share, but here we're talking about a president that gave the ultimate go ahead to invade iraq on shaky premises (even he recently admitted regret over the bad intel, too little too late). So anything that happens in that country, especially acts committed by U.S. military, he is ultimately responsible for as commander in chief. So he had better apologize. Everything else is a non issue to this one incident.

Very true and for the record, I am not saying he should not apologize, I am saying that this is just another addition to the many "defamations" that have gotten Muslims all raged up and while some are saying "damn right GWB better kiss that Koran" I am saying just what you stated: "Certainly many Islamic leaders need to do their share", as they have been equally as bad.

Why invade a country when you can take an entire continent?" or when you can basically have the local politicians fear you and give you everything..

“He apologized for that in the sense that he said that we take it very seriously,” White House press secretary Dana Perino said.

And that's an apology? Perino sounds like she's giving an apology for the appearance of an apology from Bush.

Seems to me Bush has not really apologised (why start now?) but has merely initiated an apology PR campaign in hopes that it will all blow over.

In my experience with Islamic fundies, it never simply "blows over".

The US military have dealt with this matter exceptionally well.

I agree with Madverts. For a change, the US government is actually doing well in trying to can this incident.

"It also called on commanders of U.S.-led foreign troops in Iraq to educate their soldiers on the need to respect the religious beliefs of Iraqis."

That 'it' is the so-called democratically elected government of Iraq, and therefore not even the few remaining supporters of the bush cabal can deny the 'request'... unless of course they are out and out hypocrites and just hate Islam and want all Muslims dead, like skip.

"or when you can basically have the local politicians fear you and give you everything.."

Madverts: Well, I guess perhaps this posting is too late, already the next day , but just take a look on JT's front page. Can't get to it? Ok, I'll paste it for you:

"Still others, such as Gamal Qutb, the former head of the Fatwa Committee at Al-Azhar, were even tougher, suggesting that Muslims would boycott Japanese products unless Japan takes action against the controversial video"

So, you think they don't drive fear into politicians?
