For good and ill, the Iraqi prisoner abuse mess will
remain an issue -- on the one hand right thinking Americans will abhor the
stupidity of the actions while on the other hand political glee will take
control and fashion this minor event into some modern day My Lai massacre.
I heard some Arabs are asking for an apology. I humbly
offer mine here:
-- I am sorry that the last seven times the Americans took
up arms and sacrificed the blood of our youth it was in the defense of
Muslims (Bosnia, Kosovo, Gulf War 1, Kuwait, etc.)
-- I am sorry that no such call for an apology upon the
extremists came after 9/11. I am sorry that all of the murderers on 9/11
-- I am sorry that Arabs have to live in squalor under
savage dictatorships. I am sorry that their leaders squander their wealth.
I am sorry that their governments breed hate for the US in their religious
-- I am sorry that Yasir Arafat was kicked out of every
Arab country and highjacked the Palestinian "cause." I am sorry that no
other Arab country will take in or offer more than a token amount of
financial help to those same Palestinians.
-- I am sorry that the USA has to step in and be the
biggest financial supporters of poverty stricken Arabs while the insanely
wealthy Arabs blame the USA.
-- I am sorry that our own left wing elite and our media
can't understand any of this.
-- I am sorry the United Nations scammed the poor people
of Iraq out of the"food for oil" money so they could get rich while the
common folk suffered.
-- I am sorry that some Arab governments pay the families
of homicide bombers upon their death. I am sorry that those same bombers are
seeking 72 virgins ? I can't seem to find one here on Earth.
-- I am sorry that the homicide bombers think babies are a
-- I am sorry that our troops died to free more Arabs. I
am sorry they stopped the gang rape rooms and the filling of mass graves of
-- I am sorry they show so much restraint when their
brothers in arms are killed. I am sorry that Muslim extremists have killed
more Arabs than any other group.
--I am sorry that foreign trained terrorists are trying to
seize control of Iraq and return it to a terrorist state. I am sorry we
don't drop a few dozen DaisyCutters on Fallujah.
-- I am sorry every time terrorists hide they find a
convenient "Holy Site." I am sorry they didn't apologize for driving a jet
into the World Trade Center that collapsed and severely damaged St. Nicholas
Greek Orthodox Church - one of OUR Holy Sites.
-- I am sorry they didn't apologize for flight 93 and 175,
the USS Cole, the embassy bombings, etc.
-- I am sorry Michael Moore is American; he could feed a
medium sized village in Africa.
-- I am sorry the French are French. America will get
past this latest absurdity. We will punish those responsible because that's
what we do. We hang out our dirty laundry for all the world to see. We move
on. That's why we are hated so much. We don't hide this stuff like all
those Arab countries that are now demanding an apology.
Deep down inside when most Americans saw this reported in
the news we were like . so what? We lost hundreds and made fun at a few
prisoners. Sure it was wrong, sure it dramatically hurts our cause but
until captured we were trying to kill these same prisoners. Now we're
supposed to wring our hands because a few were humiliated? Our compassion is
tempered with the vivid memories of our own people killed, mutilated and
burnt amongst a joyous crowd of celebrating Fallujans.
If you want an apology from this American your gonna have
a long wait. You have a better chance of finding those 72 virgins
If you are 'sorry' also, pass it on!!
