Obama to Apologize for American "War Crimes" During WWII

DRESDEN, GERMANY

In a move aimed at healing the rifts of American foreign policy decisions, President Obama will make a trip to Europe next month, including a trip to Dresden, Germany. The trip will consist of several stops and the President will meet with the President of France and the Chancellor of Germany. Also slated are several policy speeches.

Perhaps the most controversial is a planned speech in which President Obama will formally apologize for American 'war crimes' during the Second World War. This would be particularly comforting to Europeans, who have long condemned American foreign policy actions, especially regarding civilians.

This speech will also be welcome in Germany, who had over 12,000,000 of its citizens killed during the war. Mayor Johann Krupp of Augensburg in Saxony stated to DW that the speech will "help my great-uncle's soul rest. He burned to death during the Dresden bombings."

Along with the Dresden fire-bombings, which German historians calculate killed 300,000 civilians, Obama will discuss other American actions. These include mistreatment of French civilians during the June 1944 invasion, including the killing of over 3,000 Milice members. In February 1945, the bridge over the Rhine River was bombed by an American B-29, killing over 300 fleeing refugees.

What is not clear is broader American 'war crimes' will be spoken of. These include accusations of anti-German sentiment during the war and placing Japanese-Americans into 'concentration camps', in which UC Berkeley professor Harold Beffer, PhD, estimated that 30,000 died.

Obama's speech will take place on June 6, the 65th anniversary of American, British, and Canadian landings in Normandy, France. He will speak briefly in Berlin before making his keynote address in Dresden.

Is this a parody? Because honest to God I've never heard of anything more stupid.

No joke? This couldn't possibly be for real.

This is BS. What bridge on the Rhine? Besides, we didn't use B-29s in Europe.

You need to be a little more obvious with your satire. The folks over at Weasel Zippers thought this was real.

Don't forget the racial profiling....

After looking around the internet some more, you need to learn to be a lot more obvious with your satire. You do realize there's dozen's of websites like Free Republic who don't realize this is a joke, right?

Not funny.

No such story exists at the Deutsche Welle site.

Back when there was a KGB, this sort of thing was called aktivniye meropriyatiye (active measures).

Obama to "apologize" for WWII war crimes? Obama is a freaking war criminal. He refuses to release the prisoner photos and videos that show thing such as the gang rapes of pre-teen boys and girls, the countless beating deaths and death by various forms of torture. We must remember that the top brass admit that 95+% of all detainees are innocent of any wrong doing.
The people who are fighting the U.S. immoral occupations are NOT "terrorists" but true patriots of their respective countries. It IS NOT ILLEGAL to fight in defense of your country.
Screw Obama and his murdering, torturing and raping troops. They do not represent me; nor do I support those criminals!

Es ist an der Zeit, dass die Vereinigten Staaten entschuldigte. So viele Tote, so viele Verletzte, Gott, es macht mich so glücklich, ähm, ich meine stören.

Anonymous, if you were really a German, you would write German without errors, that should be "sich entschuldigen."
