 This Letter of Apology was written by Lieutenant General Chuck Pitman,
 U.S. Marine Corps (Retired):
 I am sorry that the last seven times we Americans took up arms and
 sacrificed the blood of our youth, it was in the defense of Muslims
 (Bosnia, Kosovo, Gulf War 1, Kuwait, etc.).

 I am sorry that no such call for an apology upon the extremists came after
 9/11.

 I am sorry that all of the murderers on 9/11 were Islamic Arabs.

 I am sorry that most Arabs and Muslims have to live in squalor under
 savage dictatorships.

 I am sorry that their leaders squander their wealth.

 I am sorry that their governments breed hate for the US in their religious
 schools, mosques, and government-controlled media.

 I am sorry that Yassar Arafat was kicked out of every Arab country and
 high-jacked the Palestinian "cause."

 I am sorry that no other Arab country will take in or offer more than a
 token amount of financial help to those same Palestinians.

 I am sorry that the USA has to step in and be the biggest financial
 supporter of poverty stricken Arabs while the insanely wealthy Arabs blame
 the USA for all their problems.

 I am sorry that our own left wing, our media, and our own brainwashed
 masses do not understand any of this (from the misleading vocal elements
 of our society, like radical professors, CNN and the NY TIMES).

 I am sorry the United Nations scammed the poor people of Iraq out of the
 "oil for food" money so they could get rich while the common folk
 suffered.

 I am sorry that some Arab governments pay the families of homicide bombers
 upon their death.

 I am sorry that those same bombers are brainwashed thinking they will
 receive 72 virgins in "paradise."

 I am sorry that the homicide bombers think pregnant women, babies,
 children, the elderly and other noncombatant civilians are legitimate
 targets.

 I am sorry that our troops die to free more Arabs from the gang rape rooms
 and the filling of mass graves of dissidents of their own making.

 I am sorry that Muslim extremists have killed more Arabs than any other
 group.

 I am sorry that foreign trained terrorists are trying to seize control of
 Iraq and return it to a terrorist state.

 I am sorry we don't drop a few dozen Daisy cutters on Fallujah.

 I am sorry every time terrorists hide they find a convenient "Holy Site."

 I am sorry they didn't apologize for driving two jets into the World Trade
 Center that collapsed and severely damaged Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox
 Church - one of our Holy Sites.

 I am sorry they didn't apologize for flight 93 and 175, the USS Cole, the
 embassy bombings, the murders and beheadings of Nick Berg and Daniel
 Pearl, etc....etc!

 I am sorry Michael Moore is American; he could feed a medium sized village
 in Africa.

 America will get past this latest absurdity. We will punish those
 responsible because that is what we do.

 We hang out our dirty laundry for the entire world to see. We move on.
 That's one of the reasons we are hated so much. We don't hide this stuff
 like all those Arab countries that are now demanding an apology.

 Deep down inside, when most Americans saw this reported in the news, we
 were like - so what? We lost hundreds and made fun of a few prisoners.
 Sure , it was wrong, sure, it dramatically hurts our cause, but until
 captured we were trying to kill these same prisoners. Now we're supposed
 to wring our hands because a few were humiliated?

 Our compassion is tempered with the vivid memories of our own people
 killed, mutilated and burnt amongst a joyous crowd of celebrating
 Fallujahans.

 If you want an apology from this American, you're going to have a long
 wait!

 You have a better chance of finding those seventy-two virgins.

 Chuck Pitman
 Lieutenant General
 US Marine Corps (Retired

This is almost a sad letter...one of frustration over the current events that have been happening.

But at the same time, I absolutely LOVE his final statement. That in itself epitomizes the thinking of some of these people.
