    From the Guardian

    Danes say sorry for Viking raids on Ireland

    · We are not proud of the massacres, says minister
    · Apology marks arrival of replica longboat in Dublin
    ...
    The Havhingsten (Sea Stallion) sailed more than 1,000 miles across the North Sea this summer with a crew of 65 men and women in what was described as a "living archaeological experiment".

    They sail all that way to apologize?! The crew didn't even get to pillage? not even a little bit? Did anyone tell them that before they started?

    If there were any waves at sea during the Voyage they are all going to turn up with PTSD too.

      It's a conspiracy.

      "oh we were sorry we did this and that...no need to worry anymore"
      "Okay, we won't guard our beaches anymore"
      And just then the vikings land again.

        I bet the guys onboard get back home with a few tales about Irish women though...There was a reason the Danes went to Ireland!

            Political correctness run amok.

            Now people are even apologizing for eating missionaries (link).

              I don't get any of this. I really don't. Let us assume that I believe I have been wronged by someone. An apology years after the fact from someone other than the person whom I believed committed the wrong is hollow and meaningless to me. Why do people do these things?

              These overly sensitive machinations about apologizing for someone else strike me as coming from the kind of men who sit naked around a beating drum encountering their feelings.

                      Given that the last one was 19th-century New Guinea, you may not be far off. Of course the "feelings" in this case were probably ones like hunger.

                          Years ago a buncha crybabies from the VVA went to Vietnam to apologize.
                          They included one of their bigshots who had made a phony POW claim along with them.

                          I belonged for a while, but their politics and atitude turned me off.

                          Some folks just don't get enough attention at home.

                              I've heard some horror stories about their leadership, From what I'm told the Vietnam veterans against the war just changed their letterhead.
