A furious mob has desecrated dozens of Commonwealth War Graves in a Libyan cemetery amid continuing fury in the Middle East over the burning of the Koran by U.S. soldiers.

Headstones commemorating British and Allied servicemen, killed during World War II campaigns in the Western Desert, lay smashed and strewn across Benghazi Military Cemetery.

Protesters rampaged through site on Friday, despite efforts by America to calm tensions sparked when it emerged U.S. soldiers had burned Muslim holy books in a pile of rubbish at a military base in Afghanistan.

Sounds like Hillary is going to have to write them a real nasty letter and probably pay them $5 million to stop.

The Democrat-media complex doesn't care - they care about students getting their $3,000 worth of birth control on the taxpayers dime.

They don't care about grave desecration... Maybe if some liberal necrophiliacs spoke up it'd be different... then they'd want us to pay for the condoms.

And people thought I was crazy cheering for Daffy.
I wish he’d wiped the “rebels” out completely - man, woman, and child.

Let the Germans have the place—that or the Italians. Think these Islamic People are feeling their oats and think they can lick the world. They will learn a harsh lesson.

American graves were repatriated several years ago.

Except for those who originally fought “on the shores of Tripoli”

At one time you could see a monument to these marines and sailors along the sea wall of Tripoli, but I last saw that in 1970.
