My Apology to Afghan President Karzai on Behalf of America
I’ve been inspired by our President’s sensitivity regarding international manners over the last few days…espeicially the courage he has shown in quickly issuing apologies to President Karzai of Afghanistan in the wake of the story about our military burning Korans outside of a detention facility. Our President is not afraid to apologize. Quite the contrary, he makes apologizing look easy. I want to be a part of the new international tone that Mr.Obama is setting with his sensitivity. I’d like to help. So I wrote my own apology to President Karzai, as a concerned citizen of the United States. Enjoy the video and a transcript is also posted below.
Dear President Karzai:
I’ve seen in the news the anger and frustration your people are expressing after it was discovered that members of our military burned copies of the Koran outside an American detention facility. Your people were outraged. I was outraged too and I’d like to express my sincere apologies. I am sorry, President Karzai. I am sorry that your penchant for raising and harboring terrorist enemies of the United States has made it necessary for us to be in your crappy, corrupt, backwards country for as long as we’ve been there. I’m sorry that the politically correct, blame-America first crowd has so infected our military operations that the rules of engagement make it impossible for us to just quickly level the bad guys there and leave. I’m sorry that you run a nation of men who would kill and have killed over the printed words on a page but who have no problem whatsoever with sewing a 12-year-old girl’s vagina shut so she can’t “sin” or beheading homosexuals. I’m sorry that your homegrown terrorist detainees use your own Holy texts, provided by our taxpayers here in the US, to send covert/coded messages back and forth. I’m sorry that our soldiers must intercept those messages and destroy them in order to keep our own personnel safe. I’m sorry that while you live in the lap of luxury on our foreign aid dollars your own people are starving and dying in abject poverty. I’m sorry that your religion has left you completely incapable of seeing the irony in your feigned outrage at the burning of 4 Korans while you imprison and even execute anyone in your country who has the audacity to get themselves raped or leave Islam for another faith. I’m sorry that our President would make such a public spectacle of apologizing for the burning of books containing secret prisoner communications while giving you and your armed forces a pass on murdering our own military personnel in cold blood. I’m sorry that your culture finds it acceptable for grown men to leave off caring for their families in order to stand around for days shooting guns, burning American flags and calling our President names like “Black Dog”. I’m sorry our President sees more value in apologizing to those men than standing up for American interests and freedoms. Mostly, President Karzai, I’m sorry that we don’t have a leader with enough balls to tell you to kindly take your fake moral outrage and your terrorist sensibilities and shove them both where the sun don’t shine: and I’m not talking about those caves you use to house your Taliban allies.
I’m sorry there are not more brave outspoken women like the one featured in this video.
Speaking Truth To Power by J. D. Flynn
‘Speaking truth to power’, so leftist, so cliché’, but as with everything else in life, turn-a-bouts fair play.
How about Salman Rushdie and his Satanic Verse? That got a fatwa placed on him, does oppression get much worse?
Or how about this songwriter, her name is Ash Soular, she wrote ObamaNation and became a YouTube Star.
The death threats followed quickly, it seems she went too far. This ‘speaking truth to power’ is becoming so bizarre.
Here’s one you never heard of, her last name is Nasrin, her books are banned in Bangladesh, where they created quite a scene.
Islamic demonstrations, demands that she be gagged, it seems this ‘truth to power’ crap might get brave soldiers fragged!
Now their calling on the FCC to censor old “Faux News”,
The slogan for the left should be, free speech, we think it’s good for all of us,
but not so much for you.
I’m sorry, too. You could not have said it better. Thank you.
Love it! Thank you Kira, truth-telling seems to be makin a comeback in America! Well done!
Excellent on all levels.
Now it is time for the rest of us to link this video and get the message out this election cycle.
Kira Davis for Secretary of State!
<<>> Another message for Hamid Karzai YOU OWE US…(the U.S.) an “apology a day” not only for the recent murders of two U.S troops by YOUR U.S./Nato/ Allied trained and financed military … but for the deaths of any service man and woman (U.S./NATO/ALLIES)… who spilled their blood for you to live in your palace safely (because you know how safe you’ll be once our troops are out of there…), and of course, for your freedom to ‘feigned indignity’ while my son and many other sons and daughters are over there in that sh*t hole right now. WHY isn’t our President demanding an apology for the deaths of two U.S. Soldiers killed by Afghan soldiers? Well, at least Kira cleared that one up for me. 🙂
Although I am Happily MArried, I LOVE YOU, Keep up the fight.
Secretary of State Material.
What a splendid and well-said message, Kira Davis! Pack your bags, girl. We need you in Washington.
Sweeeeet. Can I sign my name to your apology, too, Kira? GREAT JOB. Hope you run for Secretary of State one day. You go girl!!!!
Secretary of State? How about PRESIDENT?? Kira, clearly you have more balls than our President and all of Congress combined! Just when I thought no young people knew or cared about political truths, you cam along to restore my faith. VERY well written and presented; congratulations and keep up the good work!
This country and the world keeps getting worse all the time as long as Obama is our president. He is the worst one we have ever had. Nobody in the world respects us. They sure did when Reagan was president. The Muslims are trying to take over and dominate the world and Obama is helping them. Europe is half way there.
You are an inspiration beyond words! My eyes filled with tears of joy as I read your extremely refreshing apology. When-not if, you run for Sec. of State; I am abailable to be your right hand person!
God has already blessed you and we’ll wait for additional blessings through you to America.
Your’re the change for which I am looking!
