I cannot see how all those “drops” were made by a “squirt-can/bottle/?...
Looking at the video, the drops kind of remind me when I put water in a bottle—with a push squirt cap—it comes out as drops when I tip it upside down, but have to squeeze it to make a stream.

OK, I just took one of those bottles and walked along my kitchen counter. It came out in large drops and streams. This was water, though. I bet it would be smaller drops and trickles with a thicker substance such as oil.

It’s hard for me to see this mess comin’ out of any kind of “squirt-bottle/can”,,,But that’s me,,,
I guess it could be that somebody did this on purpose,,,but,
I just don’t think so...JMHO of course...

when you get there, find this They damaged one of our memorials and click on it.

From the link:

Friday night, someone squirted an oil/petroleum-based substance on the Vietnam Wall. As a result, the wall absorbed the substance and obliterated some of the heroes’ names inscribed at the wall.

It’s no coincidence that it was done the weekend before thousands of Eagles arrive to lobby Congress and the anti-American anarchists from ANSWER.



This is why we exist. This is why we fight, why we will not submit to the anti-American, anti-military agenda of the moonbat defeatists.

Thank you for the ping. Very distressing news. Although it may very well be that this is an intentional desecration by the enemy within, it may also be an accident. Judging by the fact that the damaged portion are all at lower levels, it might simply be some poor guy’s/gal’s picnic set was punctured and it drizzled all over the consecrated walls. Saboteurs would probably try to coat as much of the wall as they can get away with.

Of course, the posts by the guy/girl who calls itself “SDS” (nice, naming yourself after a terrorist organization) does lend credibility to sabotage.

Let’s take our breaths and find out what really happened. Don’t want to jump the gun on a VERY, VERY serious charge.

And it’s way past time for Capitol andf Park Police to deal with vandalizing scumbags accordingly.

Don’t hate! Defeat them yes, but don’t hate. You start hating, and it’s a small step to becoming just like that which you hate.

“That way the oh-so-mature people who do things like this can be paraded for the country to see.”

Paraded? Nope, way, way, too good for them. How about tarring and feathering them:

I cannot believe those who wish to bring our troops would do such a thing!!!
I feel our troops should not be refereeing a civil war and risking their lives for people who do not appreciate their sacrifice.
But I, and others who believe as I do, still support the troops, and honor them.
This vandalism is an outrage and the perps should be caught and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law!!!!

I thought, at 70 years old, I was pretty hardened to the happenings in the world today.
I sat, looking at these pictures, and tears ran down my face.
As one whose late husband flew recon missions over that area, this desecration turns my stomach and rips my heart in two.

That is just one of the reasons this infuriates me.

You have my sympathy...what the people who did this do not realize is that is is more than just stone with names etched in it. It is symbolic and MEANS something very powerful.

It means we will never forget the sacrifices of those who fought...and those who waited at home...and we won’t forget that, ever.

It is a said day to see this inconsiderate damage to this Vietnam War Memorial. No words can really express my disappointment and total disgust.

It is..but the names are etched into the granite, creating a porus surface.
The curb at the base is not polished.
