Posted on 09/06/2016 12:35:48 PM PDT by PROCON
President Barack Obama continued his international apology tour for American deeds overseas, traveling to the Asian country of Laos to deliver a speech. Obama acknowledged that the United States dropped more than two million tons of bombs in the country, intervening in the countrys civil war.
He sorrowfully noted that villages and entire valleys were obliterated as a result of the bombing, including the ancient Plain of Jars.
That conflict was another reminder that, whatever the cause, whatever our intentions, war inflicts a terrible toll, especially on innocent men, women and children, Obama said. Today, I stand with you in acknowledging the suffering and sacrifices on all sides of that conflict.

Laos is one of the few countries with no experience of dealing with him or his Administration, where they may care what he has to say.
What an [expletive deleted] idiot stick.
We apologize to the people of Laos for insulting them by sending such an oaf in the first place.
I’m betting Obama will never apologize to the country he owes an apology to the most. The U.S..
Did the bastard thank them for all the POWs they kept and never returned? There is a long list of those missing in Laos that the country never came clean on.
I guess the fact that the North Vietnamese had invaded Laos and were occupying much of the country so they could invade South Vietnam had nothing to do with any of this.
When does he apologize to the President of the Philippines?
Did anybody really expect Obama to do otherwise?
Next Obama will go to ISIS and apologize to them for bombing them..Obama will say “You know I dont mean it, Im on your side”
Obama could sell “Apology Tour 2016” concert tees with all of the locations he’s apologized to printed on the back...
The only apology that America owes the Laos people - not its government - is breaking faith with the Hmong tribespeople who were America’s fiercest allies during the war. Bombing NVA troops and Laos communists does not require an apology.
The Laotian Hmoung people were fighting like the dickens for Americans...The Pathet Lao were killing Americans and Hmoungs left and right....
Pretty clear at this point that his sole purpose for existing is to “put us in our place.”
On our dime...
Did anyone think Obama would pass up an opportunity to apologize? By the way, the Plain of Jars was not “obliterated,” though admittedly all the unexploded ordinance has made it an unsafe place to visit.
Obama...You don’t know sh*t about that war...Just STFU!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The man-(if that term applies)-is malicious with regard to Western Civilization and more specifically our Republic.
Hey Obastard...when are you apologizing for destroying America?
