For those who can not view the video there is a cemetery that holds the remains of British soldiers who died during WW2. A group of misguided young men are destroying grave stones as an act of desecration. No rest in peace for the dead WW2 British soldiers in Libya. Actually at this point the soldiers couldn't possibly care less; but it still pisses me off on many levels.

And if you did this to their graves they would be screaming death to your children and trying to blow up civilians.

Cretins is what they are and the world would be better off without them.

Moron's with no respect for anyone.

This is what happens when you Airstrike their children under the guise of "liberation"...


Some people just don't feel "liberated"...



They feel like their children have been massacred.



Just a thought...

Sleeping children "are placed" there, of course they are how could I be so naive to think that NATO doesn't massacre innocent people...

You've shown me the light...



I do blame the terrorists...

The terrorists with the drones & bombs that take the lives of children sleeping in there beds.

Two questions:

1) I don't speak the language. Can you point out which one of them said "my kid was killed in an airstrike and that's why I'm doing this" for us? Was it the one who looked all of about 16? Maybe the one who may have been 20?

2) Assuming your sentiment is true: what's the excuse for desecrating the cross?

1) "Their children" as in the children of Libya...

Like you might say "they send our children to a phony war" when referring to the Government sending the youth of *insert nation* to die...



2) I don't think that holds any significance other than internal rage being let out. People usually act irrational when thinking about family, friends, relatives & countrymen being slaughtered just so another nation could overthrow their leadership.



Like I said... Just a thought.

Maybe others could think about it too... Maybe put the shoe on the other foot... Still just a thought though!

Yeah they can rot as well...


Forgive me though...
I do find "sanctioned & authorised" terror on behalf of a Nation of "civilised people" a much more bitter pill to swallow than radical psychopaths acting out as you'd expect them to...

Oh, okay.

Tombstones: act of retribution for Libyans being killed.

Cross desecrated: meh, no bigs. Just a little emotional outburst.

Got it

Those acts of retribution are emotional outbursts...

I don't understand why you are separating the two to be honest.

Funny you live in one of those civilized nations that sanctions and authorize "terror", I guess that makes you a hypocrite? Ever think about moving to one of those great places?

I think you are all mixing up expectation with appreciation...

I never once said I agree with any of this...

I was clear to imply it's hardly unexpected.



Just like I expected Mosques to be attacked after Charlie Hebdo, doesn't mean I agree with it!

Do you people really expect enemy graves in foreign lands to be respected? If the shoe was on the other foot, I have no doubt a bunch of Americans would have no second thoughts about doing the same thing in retribution. No matter the amount of time passed.

Secondly, and most importantly, we need to let go of our glamorization of graves to begin with. There's zero emotional ammo to be used against someone if we don't put a pit of buried bones so high up on the importance pedestal.

Because tombstones of British soldiers are a representation of British military, British power, etc.

The cross is representative of Christianity.

Desecrating a grave is one thing. Desecrating a symbol of a religion is another.
