What sort of warped view of the world must you have to think that this is a just and proportional reaction to being offended by something?
The Joint Chiefs letter to the Washington Post over the recent "quadruple amputee" cartoon was a justifiable reaction. You didn't see the Washington Post bombed by an A-10 Warthog.
Everything Ted Rall draws is offensive, does that mean I'm going to get a lynch mob together and go string him up? Of course not. Only in the Middle East, in countries cut off by their governments from the arena of ideas, would normal people think it's a good idea to take up torches and burn down buildings.
Syria blamed Denmark for the protests, criticizing the Scandinavian nation for refusing to apologize for the caricatures of Islam’s holiest figure.Denmark doesn't have to apologize for anything, you medieval bonehead. In the free world, we can disagree peacefully without killing each other. Why don't you develop some sense of proportionality. How do you think the Jews react when you swear to destroy them? Everybody owes you everything and you don't have to do anything in return, just oppress your people and spew hateful nonsense and try your best to pick fights with peace-loving people around the world. Bite me, dickweed.
“(Denmark’s) government was able to avoid reaching this point ... simply through an apology” as requested by Arab and Muslim diplomats, state-run daily Al-Thawra said in an editorial Sunday.
“It is unjustifiable under any kind of personal freedoms to allow a person or a group to insult the beliefs of millions of Muslims,” the paper said.
You, yes you, mobs in Middle Eastern cities. Read a book. Join civilization, because we're doing our best to drag you kicking and screaming, but you've got to want it. Right now you're nothing more than savages. Behave like animals and expect to be treated as such when America finally straightens this mess, the damn sandbox you live in, out.
I want to write about other things, but you're pissing me off. FYI, you fundamentalist wackos, I fully intend to sit in my large apartment, drink beer and watch the Super Bowl, thinking about how sexy my wife's ankles are while she's working tonight, and furthermore, I will spew my opinions on the Internet for all the world to read if they want to. So enjoy your cave and fearing for your survival while I enjoy my FREEDOM.
EDIT:By the way, Moonbats: you bastards make me sick. I question whether you're worthy of civilization, or if it's time to vote you off the island.
EDIT #2: The blogosphere owns this story. The MSM seems willing to black it out until it blows over. I'm too angry for analysis, but here's some:
Charlie Munn at the Officer's Club says:
This episode outlines what happens when you “ain’t gonna study war no more.” Who is “humiliated” here? -The Arab street, or the Dutch, who just got bitch-slapped on national TV? Their embassies were burned- an act of war- over cartoons! That should be intolerable on the world stage. A line should be drawn here, and Syria should pay. If the Dutch government hadn’t strayed far off the trail of NATO protectionism, maybe it could do what Jimmy Carter failed to do in 1979- militarily respond to an act of war.Hoo-rah.
