Thank you, Heidi. A little side bar: I take back what I said not wanting to be a juror. If you are there with me, plus Grandmother, I will do it.
Thanks, but I would never make it through jury selection! As far as answering Moh's question about "What else has he apologized for" I was just answering him...with what our asinine "President" has apologized for. It really was not a jab at Moh.
Back to apologizing. I don't want any US President to apologize for anything, including putting the Japanese into camps. From the hindsight, we know that they were, just like the islamist terrorists are today, fanatics that loved to die for their country and the a*hole that was in power at the time. What guarantees did we have in 1941 that they would not resort to sabotage and terror? The camps gave us that so it was a good decision. They attacked us and we had to apologize?
Pay back is a bitch!! Ever heard of these names? HONDA, TOYOTA, HITACHI, SONY. They kicked our ass in technology!
Did Iran apologize for holding 53 Americans in slavery for 444 days? When they extradite the hostage takers to the US, I will apologize for the jumbo jet incident. BTW, the pilot knew our navy was in the area. He should have very politely ask us for the permission to take off specifying the time and and other details.
It was a conspiracy and there is nothing any of you can say to convince me otherwise. Airbus Air Iran Flight 655 was filled with dead people and the pilot was a martyr!
We paid dearly by getting soft and sloppy with the USS Cole. Had the ship opened fire on that boat, 17 sailors would be alive today. Instead, we were nice.
Clinton administration. I had the pleasure of sharing an elevator in Portsmouth Naval Hospital with a sailor who had been injured in the Cole terrorist attack. My daughter was in a drug induced comma on the 3rd floor. The sailor was in her working blues, and I noticed USS COLE DDG 67 on her shoulder, and 1/2 of her foot missing. All I could say with a tear in my eye was, "Thank you for your service to my country" She said, "You're welcome"
