Can I Get An Amen!

I seldom read the Washington Post, and link to them even less, but this one just had to be done. Charles Krauthammer on President Obama's attitude towards Muslims:

In these most recent 20 years -- the alleged winter of our disrespect of the Islamic world -- America did not just respect Muslims, it bled for them. It engaged in five military campaigns, every one of which involved -- and resulted in -- the liberation of a Muslim people: Bosnia, Kosovo, Kuwait, Afghanistan and Iraq.

The two Balkan interventions -- as well as the failed 1992-93 Somalia intervention to feed starving African Muslims (43 Americans were killed) -- were humanitarian exercises of the highest order, there being no significant U.S. strategic interest at stake. In these 20 years, this nation has done more for suffering and oppressed Muslims than any nation, Muslim or non-Muslim, anywhere on Earth. Why are we apologizing?

Read the whole thing, as they say.

Muslims don't like to be called rag heads, i was also informed it is not a towel either. They said it is more like a neatly wrapped little sheet.
So now i just refer to them as sheet heads.
