As a soldier (now a Naval Officer), who has served in Iraq and Korea...accept his apology and let him perform. He hasn't played the "Fonda-It was right to do at the time" game. He immediately apologized and tried to explain how he could have thought it okay to act that way, without just giving an excuse. I've found his statements so far sincere and seemingly heart-felt....and that song is pretty darn catchy!

After his YouTube video went mega-viral, the South Korean rapper named PSY received an invitation to sing and dance at a White House Christmas party. But it was quickly learned that in 2004, he had rapped lyrics wishing for the death and torture of American troops in Iraq, along with their families. PSY quickly issued a humble apology to the American people, and the White House reaffirmed that PSY’s show would go on. Was this the right thing to do?

In case you haven’t heard of PSY, his Korean rap video “Gangnam Style” has been viewed more than 900...
