US paying for Quran burning faux pas: When the brain makes a mistake, the whole body pays the price

Filed in Current affairs, foreign affairs by on February 27, 2012 0 Comments

Despite President Obama’s apology regarding a bizarre Quran burning by US forces in Afghanistan, violence against the US is still going on. The question is, how did this happen? How can a group of officers not think and predict the consequences of such an insensitive act?

Maybe this unfortunate act by US forces will speed up their withdrawal from an hostile country. This incident proves once again the difference between intelligence and common sense. For sure, more violence is ahead. One thousand apologies are not enough to repair the damage. It is too late. As the Bangala of Congo say, “When the brain makes a mistake, the whole body pays the price.”
