This is a bloody disgrace. The crucial thing to remember here is, that having an anti war attitude is absolutely fine, as long as you are prepared to
respect the choices of others, and the sacrifices made by others. I myself am anti war. However, I respect my forefathers efforts on my behalf, and
the behalf of my nation, and I respect the people who go to war, even if I dont agree with the reasons they are sent to fight very often.
This young lady has failed to understand that having a different view, does not permit one to show disrespect to those who do not share it. The
finger that she has flipped toward the honourable dead, shows a complete lack of understanding of history, or of individual dignity. Many people who
do not agree with war, believe that wars are fought because one group decides that another is some how worth less than the one they belong to. In
flipping off this monument, she has shown herself to be the very kind of bigot, that anti war movements usually protest against.
I hope she learns something from this, and I hope that anyone considering acts of such rudeness and disrespect thinks again after seeing the reaction
of people to this photograph, and the whole situation as well.
Bad, bad business.
