Afghan’s Burn Obama In Effigy

What was that talking point about making the world love us?

Hundreds of angry protesters in Afghanistan’s capital burned an effigy of President Obama on Sunday, acting on rumors that American troops had desecrated the Koran.

U.S. military officials emphatically denied that any copies of the Muslim holy book had been mishandled, and they accused the Taliban of spreading falsehoods to incite hatred against Western forces.

The protest — reminiscent of similar demonstrations in Iraq and elsewhere in the Muslim world in recent years — showed how easily passions involving religious sensitivities can be stirred up even with a dearth of evidence.

More than likely, the rumors are a load of mule fritters, just like they have been so many times before, yet, I do not remember any in the media defending Bush to this extent. If memory serves, when Bush was president, the media took the side of the America haters and barely acknowledged, if acknowledged at all, that Muslims in areas like Afghanistan tend to be a bit, shall we say, excitable? It always seemed to be that Bush had done something mean. Now Obama is in charge, where is the blame from the media? (FYI, I do not blame Obama, he did nothing wrong, and, I do not like anyone burning Obama in effigy, regardless of what my opposition is to Obama’s agenda. You respect the office, if not the man.)
