As muslim and islamic rage from the accidental burning of a few qur'ans in afghanistan spreads across the Middle East, the violence has taken a most nasty turn in Libya. In a Bengazi Military Cemetery, the graves of British and Allied servicemen were smashed and desecrated by libyan islamists. Not to mention the fact that the death toll from muslim rioting over this incident has now reached 24 people killed.
The apologies offered by the West, our military, by a weak and ineffective obama have served no purpose other than to fan the flames of muslim resentment, increasing the rioting and violence that has spread across the Middle East. When one apologizes like obama and the U.S. Military have done to muslims worldwide, it is interpreted as a major weakness by those who follow radical islam. This opens the door to a more violent response. This is exactly what we have witnessed over the last few days since this incident was first reported. Was it worth it to apologize? Was it worth it to grovel at the feet of a cult of violence, persecution and death? What has the United States gained by apologizing? Not a damn thing in my most humble opinion.
We should immediately start to pull out of afghanistan. I mean down to the last advisor and aid worker. Every type of aid, (whether it be financial, military, medical, food etc.it does not matter) should be terminated. We could use about 25,000 of our troops to be stationed all along our border with Mexico. The money that we are WASTING on aid to the muslim world and many other countries, could be put to immediate use right here at home. Why bother helping any country that hates us and hates us for what we stand for? We have people going hungry right here at home.
How about Americans first for a change?

Do you think Christians, Jews, Hindus or the followers of other true religions would have reacted in this manner had a few Bibles or other holy books gotten accidentally burned? Would there have been protests so violent that it took the lives of 24 people? Once again, radical islam gives a violent and bloody performance on the global stage.

The protests come as the FBI announced it has removed hundreds of pages of training documents that painted inaccurate or stereotypical views of Islam.
The counter-terrorism training materials referred to the Prophet Muhammad, the founder of Islam, as a cult leader and included graphs that implied devout Muslims got more violent throughout history, while Jews and Christians became less violent.
