Just a month ago, American General John Allen called Afghanis, “a noble people.” Friday, Afghanistan’s so-called President, Hamid Karzai called Americans in his country “demons” who will “never be forgiven.”
According to the New York Times via NewsMax, Afghanistan’s President Hamid Karzai called Americans in his country “demons” and says the burning of Qurans by U.S. troops will “never be forgiven.” Yes, right. Let me repeat that. American “demons” will “never be forgiven!” NewsMax finishes the report:
Karzai met on Friday with relatives of the 16 Afghan men, women and children killed allegedly by an American soldier and said the massacre “was not the first incident, indeed it was the 100th, the 200th and 500th incident,” The New York Times reports.
He also said: “Let’s pray for God to rescue us from these two demons. There are two demons in our country now,” clearly referring the United States and the Taliban, according to the Times.
And he referred to the accidental burning of Qurans on Feb. 20 as “Satanic acts that will never be forgiven by apologies.”
No, apologies (wise or foolish) do not forgive, they seek forgiveness. When Allen made his idiotic “noble” statement, Gateway Pundit, Jim Hoft addressed the situation perfectly. Here is his post:
The “noble people of Afghanistan” stoned Bagram.

U.S. Gen. John Allen apologized to the “noble people of Afghanistan” today for the improper disposal — burning, apparently — of Qurans. The Qurans reportedly had extremist inscriptions written in them.
North Country Public Radio reported:
In a video that underscores how seriously the U.S. military and NATO are taking something that profoundly offends Muslims, the commander of international forces in Afghanistan today apologizes four times for what he says was the improper disposal — burning, apparently — of Qurans and other Islamic religious materials at Bagram Air Field north of Kabul.
Word of what U.S. Gen. John Allen says was the unintentional actions of some International Security Assistance Force troops on the base led to a protest today by more than 2,000 angry Afghans outside the air field, The Associated Press reports. The wire service says that some protesters shouted “die, die foreigners!” and fired shots into the air.
Meanwhile, in the Washer district of Helmand, the “noble people of Afghanistan” beheaded four people they accused of spying for the U.S., according to the Helmand governor’s spokesman. The Taliban denied any involvement in the executions.
The military part of the “war on terror” cost is $1.325 trillion. If the military expense in Afghanistan 30% or so, America has left $400 billion or an average of $40 billion/year in Afghanistan. The human cost is even more sobering: 17,244 causalities including 1,784 American deaths. Shall we mention 144 Holy Bibles burned?
Meanwhile the “noble” Afghanis have an economy producing an annual GDP of $17.885 billion or about $575 per person. This obviously provides plenty of resources for destroying property and American flags in riots upon the slightest perceived provocation. These people are not noble. They are the natural disastrous result of more than 1500 years of Islam. Forget about a few years of Buddhist influence (Genghis Khan, ya know). What a pitiful country. What a perfect example of Islam’s natural result.
When former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf left office in 2008, we should have left Afghanistan. We should have been operating clandestinely for the past 5 or 6 years in Pakistan and Afghanistan. There is no doubt, when we do leave, Hamid Karzai will grab a plane to Paris. Iraq, the very belly of the beast, is where America should have left her military power in place.
