No apology

Posted by Richard on June 13, 2005

Jason at Liberty and Culture pointed out this article by Dr. Jack Wheeler about fans of She Wore A Yellow Ribbon in the administration. They’re fans of the John Wayne line, "Never apologize, son. It’s a sign of weakness." They want something like this in an upcoming Presidential address:

“I want to make it very clear that neither this Administration nor the American military nor the American people owe an[y] apology whatsoever to the religion of Islam and its believers. The American people have every right to take enormous pride in the respect [with] which our military treats believers in Islam, and in the fact that the American military is not just the most powerful but the most humanitarian fighting force in the history of humankind. It is the Islamic terrorists and their followers who owe us an apology for making war on us, and owe an apology to their fellow believers in Islam for making war on them.”

It needs a couple of edits (which I’ve added in brackets), but it’s just about right. And I agree with Wheeler:

The day the President of the United States announces that Moslems owe an apology to us and not the other way around will be the day we truly begin to win this war.
