What Apology?...

Reader comment on item: On Second Thought … Maybe that Israeli Apology to Turkey was a Good Idea

Submitted by marcia (United States), Mar 29, 2013 at 13:18

During my day, if I step on someone's foot or don't hold a door behind me, I automatically say, "Oops..Sorry". Do you think people remember to "apologize" or even think they OWE an apology or a simple "I'm sorry" these days? The way I look at it, if Turkey says "We will not talk to you until you say you are sorry" and Israel says, "Okay you big stupid baby...we don't really mean it but if it makes you shut up..we are sorry" and that's all it takes, who walks away laughing at the other in the end?! Israel would not have changed one iota of what she did and should the occasion arise again she would probably be even tougher the next time!
