    I'M SORRY.

    Author unknown.

    For good and ill, the Iraqi prisoner abuse mess will remain an issue.
    > On the one hand, right thinking Americans will abhor the stupidity of the actions while on the other hand, political glee will take control and fashion this minor event into some modern day My Lai massacre.
    I heard some Arabs are asking for an apology. I humbly offer mine here:

    I am sorry that the last seven times we Americans took up arms and
    sacrificed the blood of our youth, it was in the defense of Muslims
    (Bosnia,
    Kosovo, Gulf War 1, Kuwait, etc.).

    I am sorry that no such call for an apology upon the extremists came
    after 9/11. I am sorry that all of the murderers on 9/11 were Arabs.

    I am sorry that Arabs have to live in squalor under savage dictatorships.
    I am sorry that their leaders squander their wealth. I am sorry that
    their governments breed hate for the US in their religious schools.

    I am sorry that Yasir Arafat was kicked out of every Arab country and
    high jacked the Palestinian "cause". I am sorry that no other Arab country
    will
    take in or offer more than a token amount of financial help to those
    same
    Palestinians.
    I am sorry that the USA has to step in and be the biggest financial
    supporter of poverty stricken Arabs while the insanely wealthy Arabs
    blame the USA.
    I am sorry that our own left wing elite and our media can't understand
    any of this. I am sorry the United Nations scammed the poor people of Iraq
    out of the "food for oil" money so they could get rich while the common folk
    suffered.

    I am sorry that some Arab governments pay the families of homicide
    bombers upon their death. I am sorry that those same bombers are seeking 72
    virgins?
    I can't seem to find one here on Earth.

    I am sorry that the homicide bombers think babies are a legitimate target.
    I am sorry that our troops died to free more Arabs. I am sorry they
    stopped the gang rape rooms and the filling of mass graves of
    dissidents.
    I am sorry they show so much restraint when their brothers in arms are
    killed. I am sorry that Muslim extremists have killed more Arabs than
    any other group.

    I am sorry that foreign trained terrorists are trying to seize control
    of Iraq and return it to a terrorist state. I am sorry we don't drop a few
    dozen Daisy cutters on Fallujah.
    I am sorry every time terrorists hide they find a convenient "Holy
    Site".
    I am sorry they didn't apologize for driving a jet into the World Trade
    Center that collapsed and severely damaged Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox
    Church - one of our Holy Sites.

    I am sorry they didn't apologize for flight 93 and 175, the USS Cole,
    the embassy bombings, etc.

    I am sorry Michael Moore is American; he could feed a medium sized
    village in africa.
    I am sorry the French are french?
    America will get past this latest absurdity. We will punish those
    responsible because that is what we do. We hang out our dirty laundry
    for all the world to see. We move on. That's one of the reasons we are hated so
    much.
    We don't hide this stuff like all those Arab countries that are
    now demanding an apology.

    Deep down inside, when most Americans saw this reported in the news,
    we were like - so what? We lost hundreds and made fun of a few prisoners.
    Sure, it was wrong, sure, it dramatically hurts our cause, but until
    captured we were trying to kill these same prisoners. Now we're supposed
    to wring our hands because a few were humiliated? Our compassion is
    tempered
    with the vivid memories of our own people killed, mutilated and burnt
    amongst a joyous crowd of celebrating Fallujans.
    If you want an apology from this American, you're going to have a long
    wait. You have a better chance of finding those 72 virgins.

    If you are "sorry" also, pass it on!
