    Take a gander at Michael Walsh's response to the savages who killed the UN workers, and see if you agree with him:

    1. Noel Coward penned a little ditty called "Don't Let's Be Beastly to the Germans."
    It was, he explained, "a satire directed against a small minority of excessive humanitarians, who, in my opinion, were taking a rather too tolerant view of our enemies."

    2. Over in Afghanistan, a mob of howling savages, whipped up by our "ally," kleptocratic President Hamid Karzai, has been rioting for nearly a week over the burning of a Koran by an obscure pastor in Florida. More than 20 have died, including two US soldiers...

    3. In a series of disgraceful statements, Sens. Harry Reid and Lindsey Graham, along with Gen. David Petraeus, have laid the blame for the unrest where it doesn't belong: at the feet of the US Constitution.

    4. This is jaw-dropping in its ignorance and stupidity. Graham is arguing against freedom of speech -- why else should an American citizen exercising his First Amendment rights, however offensive to some, be "held accountable" for the reactions of superstitious goatherds half a world away?

    5. But the prize for disappointment goes to Petraeus and NATO Ambassador Mark Sedwill, whose statement read in part: "In view of the events of recent days, we feel it is important . . . to reiterate our condemnation of any disrespect to the Holy Koran and the Muslim faith. We condemn, in particular, the action of an individual in the United States who recently burned the Holy Koran.

    "We further hope the Afghan people understand that the actions of a small number of individuals, who have been extremely disrespectful to the Holy Koran, are not representative of any of the countries of the international community who are in Afghanistan to help the Afghan people."

    6. ...we are instead apologizing to the very people who are killing American soldiers, and treating their holy book better than we do any other.

    7. World War II ended with the destruction of German cities, the death of Hitler, the hanging of the top surviving Nazis at Nuremberg. In Japan, Gen. Douglas MacArthur forced Emperor Hirohito to publicly renounce the myth of his own divinity and the Japanese doctrine of racial superiority.

    But don't let's be beastly to the Islamists. After all, restricting the rights of our own citizens in order to appease people still living in the 7th century isn't much of a price to pay for peace, is it?

    Let's be meek to them

    And turn the other cheek to them

    And try to bring out their latent sense of fun.

    Let's give them full air parity

    And treat the rats with charity,

    But don't let's be beastly to the Hun.

    Politicians appease Islamists--Michael A. Walsh - NYPOST.com

    This is disgusting, the blame for these deaths lay at the feet of the stupid Afghan mob who killed them, just because an idiot burned a Quran doesnt give anyone an excuse to kill.

    I think he is right on the mark. The ONLY bummer about the whole thing is the threat to soldiers and innocent civilians. But....and I say this reluctantly...isnt that what terrorism is? Fear to upset exremist wackos so nobody gets killed over their insanity?

    well, of course, we should have no respect at all for the koran, a book we should all be burning, or for muslims, all of whom are guilty by association!

    but remember, only a braindead liberal would be stupid enough to burn our precious bible and blame ALL christians for the acts of a few extremist christians

    The ignorant asshole who burned a holy book is publicity seeking attention whore. You burn a book, that is your right. I also have the right to call you an ignorant attention seeking publicity whore for doing so.

    I would prefer Petraeus focus on his job, and not on political issues... sadly, soldiers get dragged into politics.

    If wer living in a time where we are scared to offend radical Muslims, we might as well bring the troops home because they already won.

    When you break through to the rank of Brig. General and above, politics become part of your job.

    In this country it is acceptable to burn the flag but not acceptable to burn a copy of the Koran... I find this amazing. No, I find it pretty stupid.
