Have We Really?

Have we really become so arrogant (as a nation) that it is beneath us to apologize for making a mistake?  From the howls of protest coming from sea to shining sea over our president making a public apology to the Afghan people for the accidental(?) burning of some Qurans and religious texts while cleaning out a library on a military base in the country, it would seem that we have.

As indicated, there is another thing about the incident that bothers me.  For what were we doing burning books of any kind in the first-place?

No, the violent reaction of the Afghan people is certainly not helping.  For with them rioting in the streets and murdering U.S. servicemen, they just bolster the resolve of those who think that we have not done anything to apologize for.

Ah, but there is a warning in place that we would do well to heed.  For it is written: Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. [Proverbs 16:18 KJV]

Well, Obama has to apologize, doesn't he, or he'll be kicked out of the local Muslim temple that he belongs to, right?

Please, don't let anyone try to convince you that you are not really good at being utterly ridiculous, my dear RN.
