Don't apologize to enemies

I am so sick and tired of the news media and this administration constantly apologizing to our enemies for things that happen around the world, blaming us as Americans for every stupid act perpetrated by some misguided, enraged, off-balance person or organization.

This country has spent trillions of dollars, untold man-hours and lives to help other nations all over the world. The news media pick up a story and blow it all out of proportion before all the facts are known – all for sensationalism.

When does a foreign country, other than the United Kingdom and a few smaller ones, come to our aid when we have a natural disaster or act of terrorism?

I just saw on the Internet where Muslim extremists desecrated a World War II British cemetery in Benghazi, Libya. Does anyone believe that the liberal left will show any outrage about this?

It appears that we are reverting to the “hate America” attitude of the 1960s and 1970s.

The news media ranted on for weeks about someone burning the Quran, but says little or nothing about the banishment of the Bible in Muslim countries.

The president is the leader of this country, and as such should stand up for us and promote the good qualities we espouse. The news media should follow suit since they have such a captive audience and influence.
