And Obama is apologizing. And our Generals are apologizing. And the Pentagon is apologizing. America, where are you on this?
Why would civilized men apologize for destroying materials that were being used to send jihadist messages to kill our soldiers, our citizens? This is madness. Where are Muslim apologies for 1,400 years of jihadi wars, land appropriations, cultural annihilations and enslavements? Where are the apologies for the relentless war on the Jews, the Hindus, Christians, and all non-Muslims? Where are the apologies for 911, 7/7, 3/11, the Cole, Khobar, Beslan, and Bosnia?
As an American, I do not apologize. I withdraw Obama's apology. I withdraw General Allen's apology. I condemn their apology. I do not submit to a culture that suffocates ideas, critical thinking, women, non-Muslims. I do not apologize that the United States of America is "the greatest, the noblest and, in its original founding principles, the only moral country in the history of the world."
It took centuries of intellectual, philosophical development to achieve political freedom. It was a long struggle, stretching from Aristotle to John Locke to the Founding Fathers. The system they established was not based on unlimited majority rule, but on its opposite: on individual rights, which were not to be alienated by majority vote or minority plotting. The individual was not left at the mercy of his neighbors or his leaders: the Constitutional system of checks and balances was scientifically devised to protect him from both. This was the great American achievement—and if concern for the actual welfare of other nations were our present leaders’ motive, this is what we should have been teaching the world. (Ayn Rand)
America does not apologize to savages and cannibals and ghouls.

Sacrifice: Some 1,214 graves are marked in Benghazi War Cemetery
President Obama has apologised to President Karzai for the unintentional burning of the Korans at NATO's main Bagram air base after Afghan labourers found charred copies while collecting rubbish.
White House spokesman Jay Carney sought to counter criticism, telling reporters on board Air Force One: ‘It is wholly appropriate, given the sensitivities to this issue, the understandable sensitivities.’
But it appears to have had little affect on sentiment among many in the Middle East.Twelve people died today during the bloodiest day yet of protests over the incident.
Immediately after news broke of the incident, more than 2,000 furious Afghans - some chanting ‘die, die foreigners’, other throwing rocks - gathered outside the giant US air base at Bagram, 40 miles north of the capital Kabul, as reports of the burning spread.
Military sources said that books were removed from the library of a nearby detention center because they contained extremist messages.

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.
