Obama may apologize to the Afghanis for burning them, but the Tundra Tabloids tells them to go pound sand.
Afghanistan demands NATO put Koran-burners on trial

KABUL (Reuters) – Afghanistan wants NATO to put on public trial those who burned copies of the Koran at a NATO base, President Hamid Karzai’s office said on Thursday, after a third day of bloody protests over the incident.
It said NATO had agreed to a trial, but that could not be immediately confirmed.
Karzai had earlier accused a U.S. officer of “ignorantly” burning copies of the Koran, in an incident that has deepened anti-Western sentiment in a country NATO is trying to stabilize before foreign combat troops leave by the end of 2014.
Demonstrations have drawn thousands of angry Afghans to the streets, chanting “Death to America!” amid violence that has killed 11 people including two U.S. service personnel.
“NATO officials, in response to a request for the trial and punishment of the perpetrators …
promised this crime will brought to court as soon as possible,” Karzai’s office said in a statement.
President Barack Obama sent a letter to Karzai apologizing for the burning of the Korans, after Afghan laborers found charred copies while collecting rubbish at the sprawling Bagram air base.
NOTE: And the Tundra Tabloids couldn’t be any more popular with the Muslims around the world than it is now. Bwhahahahahahaha
