Can I just say that Obama is an idiot. His attempts to appease the insatiable demands of Muslims, acting as an enabler for terrorism, just encourages greater outrages. Now this:
Afghanistan wants NATO to put on public trial those who burned copies of the Quran at a NATO base, President Hamid Karzai's office said Thursday, after a third day of bloody protests over the incident.This is a perfect example of "you can lead a horse to water, but you can't force it to drink." We've shown them civilization and they have rejected it. Nation building and "winning hearts and minds" is and has always been a losing strategy.
It said NATO had agreed to a trial, but that could not be immediately confirmed.
Karzai had earlier accused a U.S. officer of "ignorantly" burning copies of the Quran, in an incident that has deepened anti-Western sentiment in a country NATO is trying to stabilize before foreign combat troops leave by the end of 2014.
Demonstrations have drawn thousands of angry Afghans to the streets, chanting "Death to America!" amid violence that has killed 11 people including two U.S. service personnel.
"NATO officials, in response to a request for the trial and punishment of the perpetrators ... promised this crime will brought to court as soon as possible," Karzai's office said in a statement.
