Christian war graves desecrated in Libya
msnbc ^ | 3/3/2012 | msnbc

Posted on 03/04/2012 9:28:46 AM PST by tobyhill

Libya's leadership has apologised after armed men smashed the graves of British soldiers killed during World War Two, in acts of vandalism that appeared to be directed against non-Muslims.

Amateur video footage of the attacks, posted on video sharing site YouTube and social networking site Facebook, showed men casually kicking over headstones in a war cemetery and using sledge hammers to smash a metal and stone cross.

One man can be heard saying: "This is a grave of a Christian" as he uprooted a stone headstone from the ground.

Another voice in the footage says of the people buried in the cemetery: "These are dogs."

The dictators recently deposed (and deceased) with American assistance were guilty of not being committed enough to the jihad of the Murdering Muslims.

The world is actually in greater danger now than pre-Desert Storm II.

I doubt it. My Dad’s a stone mason and with all the digging he’s done, he’d at least found an arrowhead or two. Joking aside, it’s a disgusting thing to do.

Hopefully several. Then I can go out back and dig relics to my heart's content.

Hillary Clinton cheered Gaddafi’s murder and proclaimed “we got him!”

His murder was a war crime. He was tortured and murdered as a POW. This is a greater crime than the reported abuses at Abu Ghraib.

Barack’s foreign policy has been decided pro-Islamist. Seating the Muslim Brotherhood into power in Egypt and Libya is part of that agenda.

He will not denounce this religious hatred they are showing.

Give me a break. These people are defacing graves simply for their own pleasure, that’s a bit different than someone building a house on vacant land that someone might have been buried in long ago.

“lots have never been found.”

That just goes to show how silly your original statement was. If nobody knows where these unmarked burial grounds were, then the only way people could have been certain they weren’t “desecrating” them, would be simply to never build anything ever again. Ridiculous.

The Axis powers(Germany and Japan) started WW2. The sowed the whirlwind and reaped it. Do you regret that?

My Dad built retaining walls through 300 ft. of our 2 acre property. He found some old glass throw out by the original homeowner, but no arrowheads, or femurs, for that matter.

Did not say that, I said this has been happening since the dawn of history. Do not make a mountain out of a mole hill.

Some things never change.....the quote from the movie, “Patton”:

“The Carthaginians defending the city were attacked by three Roman legions. The Carthaginians were proud and brave but they couldn’t hold. They were massacred. Arab women stripped them of their tunics and their swords and lances. The soldiers lay naked in the sun. Two thousand years ago. I was here.”

You said ‘’we bomber the hell out of german and japanese graves during ww1 and ww2 nobody gave a fart’’. First of all no one ‘’bomber’’ German graves during WW! as first of all long-range strategic bombing was not yet in existence and secondly the war never reached German soil. No bomber. Japan in WW1 as that nation was not involved in the fighting so learn to spell and then learn some history. As to WW2, as I said Geramny and Japan were the belligerents and who gave a crap where the bombs landed. I sure don’t. Ironically you’re the one making a mountain out of a mole pal.

No you are, my post was an attempt to say the whole thing is irrevelant, and maybe you should read a little history. http://www.centennialofflight.gov/essay/Air_Power/WWI_Bombing/AP3.htm

Actually, Japan was involved in WW I -- on the side of the Allies, fighting against Germany.

That's how Japan came to own the Marianas, Caroline and Marshall Islands, along with Tsingtao on the Chinese mainland. All had been German colonies.

Ah, no, you need to read history. Germany was not a scene of any fighting in WW1.

Didn't say they did. But your statement that "Japan wasn't involved in the fighting" in WW I is mistaken.

The link you provided say’s japan ‘’seized’’ German ports in the Far East. “Siezing’’ something is different than fighting for it. I’m not unaware of japans involvment in WW1 but the person I was posting to made the assertion that German and Japanese graves were bomber in WW1 and WW2. The former is incorrect.

Yeah, when I was a kid in the 50s we played cowboys and nativehyphenamericans when we weren’t playing baseball or beating up some panty waist that was going to grow up to be a liberal twit. Guess I need to find all those kids that had to play the part of nativehyphenamericans and apologize to them for shooting them with my Lone Ranger cap gun. It was tough in the 1950s desecrating nativehyphenamerican graves in retaliation for the wagon train getting burned, all the women getting raped and us getting scalped and all. Good thing we didn’t desecrate the graves of those about to be liberal twits. Perhaps another casino is in order?

What I said you dope was the fighting did not come to Germany. My grandfather served in WW1. When the fighting stopped on Nov.11th,1918 the German Army surrendered in place , in France and marched home to Germany in defeat.

We have 14 acres of flat ground with a stream running through behind our house. The problem is that I’d need hip waders, it’s so swampy!
