US advisers shot dead 'after Koran row'
ABC News ^ | February 27, 2012 | Massoud Hossaini

Posted on 02/26/2012 1:17:01 PM PST by Beowulf9

Two United States advisers who were shot dead in Afghanistan's interior ministry by an Afghan colleague had been mocking anti-US protests over the burning of the Koran, a government source said.

The description of the shooting - which led to NATO pulling all its advisers out of Afghan government ministries - came amid renewed violence in a sixth day of anti-American demonstrations.


TOPICS: News/Current Events
KEYWORDS: afghanistan; koran; us; waronterror
A protester was killed and seven US soldiers were wounded in a grenade attack on their base as France, announced its Kabul embassy was temporarily withdrawing all its civilian mentors and advisors from Afghan institutions for "safety reasons".

Germany also said it had withdrawn its national and international staff from Afghan ministries as a "precautionary measure".

Describing the sequence of events that led to the interior ministry shootings, the source said the US advisers were "scolding the protesters and calling them bad names" as they watched videos of protests in Kabul.

"They called the Koran a bad book in the presence of (an Afghan colleague). After all this the guy had verbal arguments with the advisers and was threatened by them. He gets angry and shoots them. Eight rounds were fired at them," the source added, requesting anonymity.

Obama will apologize personally and have the families of the US officers extradited to Afghanistan for trial, the ungrateful Islamophobic racists.

That should fix it, for today.

I don't believe anything the Afghan Government says. I don't even believe most of what my own Governent says.

“The United States of America also condemned the attack in the strongest words, Pentagon said.” Obama has said nothing, the Pentagon is doing all the speaking...funny, you would think you might hear from our President but he’s busy with the abortion issues and stuff.

Meanwhile this could be the start of war. Scary.

Beowulf, please don’t be ridiculous. It’s a beautiful day here in DC, and our hard-working president is doubtless spending another well-merited day on the links at Andrews AFB. Do you seriously expect him to pay attention to trivial little issues like an impending World War III? Come on. Be reasonable. He has algae to think about!

We must have some of those MOAB’s left over. I suggest dropping one directly on that rioting crowd. We just have to be ready to apologize if any of the soon to be dead rioters are holding the Koran and they accidentally burn.

Notice how the American media always has this story with the fact that the Koran was insulted? Yet in the Telegraph , uk media it called the death of the 2 advisers a execution.

did you know those 2 officers were in their office when they were executed?

I don’t recall reading that exact fact in MSM, just the fact that a Koran was insulted or some burned.

If the Islamists (political Islam, jihad and sharia law advocates) here in America ever feel that threatened and fear for their safety we have a proven means of protecting them from harm..

(No they were NOT Nazi death camps.. I am constantly astounded by the BIG LIE that so many embrace. Yes it is true that people suspected of loyalty to the Imperial Government of Japan were confined to camps.)

"Background

"During the spring and summer of 1942, the United States Government carried out, in remarkably short time and without serious incident, one of the largest controlled migrations in history. This was the movement of 110,000 people of Japanese descent from their homes in an area bordering the Pacific coast into 10 wartime communities constructed in remote areas between the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the Mississippi River.

"The evacuation of these people was started in the early spring of 1942. At that time, with invasion of the west coast looming as an imminent possibility, the Western Defense Command of the United States Army decided that the military situation required the removal of all persons of Japanese ancestry from a broad coastal strip. In the weeks that followed, both American-born and alien Japanese residents were moved from a prescribed zone comprising the entire State of California, the western half of Oregon and Washington, and the southern third of Arizona.

"The Relocation Program

"The United States Government, having called upon these people to move from their homes, also assumed a responsibility for helping them to become reestablished. To carry out this responsibility, the President on March 18, 1942, created a civilian agency known as the War Relocation Authority. . . The relocation centers, however, are NOT and never were intended to be internment camps or places of confinement . . . ."

Sorry (Not!) to disappoint any Lefty pukes who might be reading this but we really didn't beat to death and ship the remaining 110,000 people off in boxcars to die in death camps . . . . IT JUST DID NOT HAPPEN AS SO MANY LOVE TO SQUAWK ABOUT.

Wot? Their lives were disrupted? Well I think something like 14 million lives were disrupted here in America and -- what? -- two million American lives were ENDED by the war!

And an American-loving Salute! to the Japanese-Americans who like millions of other Americans fought to save Her. Who can dishonor these men by saying that they were forced to fight?

RELOCATION OF JAPANESE-AMERICANS

(No, I do not believe the Japanese just loved to be uprooted and moved into a strange area where they had to build their communities all over. . . True I WAS NOT there having been born only a year before -- though we infants had all been issued olive drab diapers and were on call for domestic assignments . . . . )

This is war defending against Islamism (political Islam, jihad and sharia law). We can learn a lot from the last Americans who were permitted by their government to WIN the war!

In America we had the Occupy Wall Street protests that went on for months, producing only a few rapes and storefront smashing-ins.

In Afghanistan, Islamic fanatics are now in the sixth day of their Occupy NATO Military Installations and Embassies protests and the dead bodies are already piling up. If the relatively passive OWS crowd could sustain their relatively peaceful movement for months, imagine how long and bloody the Afghan fanatics’ killing spree against NATO personnel will be. Bring our troops home now.

I’m starting to wonder whether Obammie the Commie and his comrades orchestrated this entire event knowing the reaction it would have so that they could use that reaction as the mandate to pull up stakes very suddenly and get out of Afghanistan.

That enables him to say, “See, I told yuh I’d get us outta Iraq and Afghanistan, and I did.”

“Psst, what about all the other wars you started?”

“Bush’s fault!”

Pull out and let these ignorant fools kill each other. And in the process use our weapons where it hurts on the way out. Animals, all of them.

Meanwhile this could be the start of war. Scary.

Zer0 would love a war to save his pResidency, but it would have to fit some criteria:

1) The US would have to take the side of the Muslim Brotherhood and fight as mercenaries for free. This makes war in Afghanistan and Iraq highly unlikely, we will retreat.

2) It will have to please the left and wacko left, so it must be in support of Muslims of the Muslim brotherhood type and against anti Muslim Brotherhood Muslims that have made working diplomatic agreements with the US and/or Israel. War against Israel would be acceptable.

3) It needs few identifiable boots on the ground, to be short, and to not generate a need for a draft.

I do not believe these two advisors were making fun of the protest or koran burnings. No one in his right mind would do that in an office filled with Muslims. These guys were murdered plain and simple.

Why, so they can be tried under Sharia law, of course.

I recommend the entire obama adminstration travel there, go door to door to personally apologize until they stop killing our soldiers.

You win for the insane post of the day.

American citizens rounded up and imprisoned for years on suspicion? No doubt their property was returned to them upon release.

BTW, US KIA in WW2 is reliably estimated at less than 500,000.

Only one day?

I've posted a call to intern Islamists (political Islam, jihad and sharia law advocates) at least a dozen times over the past couple of years.

.. and you are right the US WWII KIA was less than 500,000

Yes, round up Islamists (political Islam, jihad and sharia law advocates) and move them to safety if they feel threaten by our defense against their aggression. It don't git no simpler than that.

Could this be a first in the history of the world that a war was started because of a bok being burned? Soccer? Okay I get it. But a stupid Koran? It’s such a bloody book, gives new meaning to the word Luminol.
