Shocker! Afghan investigation concludes that we burned the Qur'an on purpose

Uh huh.  What other conclusion could they come up with that would preclude more riots and mayhem other than being a victim.  This should have been seen coming a mile away, but as clueless as we are about Islamic doctrine it really isn't a surprise.

Now the question; what do we do to continue to appease the alligator so it will stop biting?

US Qur’an burning was intentional, Afghan investigator says

Kabul (dpa) – The burning of the Qur’an at a US military base in Afghanistan was intentional, a member of the investigating team told dpa Monday.
“We believe it is intentional,” said Maulavi Khaliqdad, a member of the panel established by President Hamid Karzai.
“If they burnt one or two copies, then we could have said it could have been a mistake. But they took hundreds of such books to burn. Everyone knew those were religious books.”
News that US soldiers in Bagram airbase north of Kabul had burnt copies of religious books including Qur’an last month caused violent protests nationwide.
International military officials apologized and said it was “unintentional.” US President Barack Obama also sent a written apology to Karzai.
But despite apologies and calling for calm by Karzai, more than 30 protesters were killed in the ensuing violence.
Now a total of over 40, including 5 Americans.
Six US soldiers were also killed in apparent revenge attacks by their Afghan allies, including two US military advisers who were murdered inside the fortified Interior Ministry building.
Khaliqdad said the team’s finding that the burning was intentional has been presented to Karzai and parliament.
“It is impossible if you collect that many books from library … Someone is responsible for this,” he said. “We cannot accept that they say it was a mistake.”
A statement which in no uncertain terms says there is no way at all there will ever be calm or peace.  We will continue to believe the opposite despite all the evidence to the contrary.  And that mindset will get us killed.
“A mistake is when someone does something without any knowledge or when someone is unaware,” said Khaliqdad, who is also a member of religious Ulema Council of Islamic scholars and mullahs.
