    Absolutely disgraceful.

    They would call a Jihad if we did this to their graves.

    A4K, I'm with with you on this so I'll say very little. Remember the days of riots when some soldiers burned copies of the Koran

    A reprehensible act for sure. But no more of an example of "Muslim Intolerance" than saying that a bunch of neo-nazis kicking over Jewish headstones is a sign of Christian Intolerance. That's all I'm saying on this one.

    The CWGC plan to put it all back to how it was. This is their web entry in the 'News Events / Latest Cemetery Information' section:

    Benghazi War Cemetery to be fully restored

    28/02/2012

    It’s now reported from Benghazi that two Commonwealth War Graves cemeteries have been damaged in attacks over the weekend – both the Benghazi War Cemetery and now the Benghazi British Military Cemetery. We are awaiting a detailed report but in both cemeteries, headstones were broken and disfigured. Both cemeteries will be restored to a standard befitting the sacrifice of those commemorated at Benghazi, but this could take some time because we will need to source replacement stones. We will also need to be sure that it’s safe for the detailed work to be carried out, but in the meantime we will ensure that temporary markers are erected over the graves. We have no reports of any maintenance staff being injured in the attack.

    I think the thing that really strikes me as a tragedy, is that those douchebags probably have no idea who those people were under those headstones.

    They have no idea that young men scarcely older than they are, travelled all the way to that distant land, fought and died under that scorching sun in the hopes of freeing the world from tyranny.

    And the blame shouldn't lie on those ignorant youngsters who are all jacked up on religious frenzy, but the a$$hole clerics who keep them stupid intentionally, so that these kids are total puppets for thier idiotic pseudo-religious agenda.

    I think a lot of of us feel that way.

    I think the thing that bothers me the most is the fact that if we did something like that, the whole damn region and religion would be calling for Jihad.

    Nobody should disgrace the tombs of fallen soldiers, no matter which army they served.
