11 percent Say U.S. Should Apologize To Iran
Just 11% of U.S. voters think America should apologize to Iran for “crimes” against the Islamic country – one of the prerequisites demanded by the Iranian president before he will agree to meet with President Barack Obama.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 73% oppose such an apology.
Obama in an interview last week with al-Arabiya, a 24-hour Arabic language satellite network, offered to end nearly 30 years of bad relations with Iran if the Middle Eastern nation is ready to "unclench its fist.”
Ahmadinejad responded by demanding an apology for U.S. "crimes" against Iran and calling for major changes in U.S. policies toward his country.

Or anyone else, for that matter? Why must the US always apologize for its very existence?

to Vietnam and Cambodia for terrible crimes it committed there?
Come on, Ahmaginejad - you're either haplessly naive or stupid.
