The President of the United States bombs a Muslim country, and some nobody in Florida burns a Koran. Guess which one’s to blame for rioting in Afghanistan?

From the New York Times, whose proofreading budget must have gone toward that paywall:

MAZAR-I-SHARIF, Afghanistan — Stirred up by a trio of angry mullahs who urged them to avenge the burning of a Koran at Florida church [sic], thousands of protesters overran the compound of the United Nations in this northern Afghan city, killing at least 12 people, Afghan and United Nations officials said…

Unable to find Americans on whom to vent their anger, the mob turned instead on the next-best symbol of Western intrusion — the nearby United Nations headquarters. “Some of our colleagues were just hunted down,” said a spokesman for the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan, Kieran Dwyer, confirming that the attack.

So they attacked representatives of the UN, which is bombing Muslims, because they couldn’t find representatives of America, which is also bombing Muslims but more importantly is where some weirdo burned a Koran a few weeks ago. Okay. But don’t worry, Mr. Talky made it all better with his magic words:

In Washington President Obama issued a statement strongly condemning the violence against United Nations workers. “Their work is essential to building a stronger Afghanistan for the benefit of all its citizens,” he said. “We stress the importance of calm and urge all parties to reject violence.”

I was taken aback by this at first, considering what’s going on in Libya, but then I remembered that he’s not George Bush so never mind.

Well, the last people we should blame are the actual rioters. As JWF puts it: “Eight People Murdered for Book Burning Half a World Away.”

    I assume icanhashandletroll is still feverishly researching similar instances of Christian mobs killing people over burning the Bible. He’ll have a link for us aaaany second now.

    Re: Crazed, murderous Islamists it’s much like the Scorpion excuse: It’s what they DO!
    Now, if only the Western World tried to elevate the Islamists to oh, let’s say, the NINETEENTH Century, we might make some progress. All this talk of bringing them into the 21st Century has the poor little darlings confused. Hell, even the Chinese moved beyond just inventing gunpowder – a product that Islamists worship, crave, and use by the boatload.

    The pernicious, enabling, world leftist-dominated press has great fun at America’s expense, thus and ever so. I’d MUCH rather defend a “cowboy” POTUS than a two-faced, mom jean-wearing, lazy, vacation-loving, pathological lying narcissist.

    Now watch as Barry points the finger at Zee Fraunch for that lethal air attack against the alleged good guys.
    Yo, Islamists, brothas … Aint it time to light up Gay Parée again?

    What a bunch of barbarians. Kind of like us cutting off the pinkies of innocent Afghan kids we killed for sport. Which I’m sure is unrelated.

    Anyway, Libya! Sure.

      Why are we in Afganistan? 9/11. Why are you an idiot? Self-loathing.

        Sorry, I can’t hear the dog whistle.

          So actual reason is to collect pinkies?

      I’m not a Christian, so I’m more bothered by Ol’ Glory going up in smoke. But let’s not forget the day when either a deity, or an old president, looked down and smiled broadly, while a dumb terrorist caught his beard on fire. Anybody know where that picture is?
