Defiling The Graves Of Better Men
Defiling The Graves Of Better Men: As Coalition forces are fighting to liberate the Iraqi people & eliminate Saddam Hussein’s rogue regime, some French anti-war protestors are desecrating the graves of Brits who helped France fight off the Germans in WW1…
“Vandals have defaced one of the biggest British war cemeteries in northern France with graffiti condemning the US-British invasion of Iraq, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) said.
Insults aimed at British Prime Minister Tony Blair and US President George W Bush were sprayed in red paint over a monument to Britain’s dead from World War I and discovered by a gardener last Thursday.
…The words “Rosbifs [British] go home! Saddam Hussein will win and spill your blood” were painted in French over the base of the cemetery’s main monument – an obelisk topped by a cross.
On one side was a swastika and the words “death to the Yankees”.
Also daubed were the words “dig up your garbage, it is fouling our soil,” and “Bush, Blair to the TPI (International Court of Justice)”
I can’t speak for the British, but if France is threatened again, I don’t think they’re going to have to worry about any new American troops coming to help them and “fouling (the) soil” of France in the process. Our British cousins may be more willing to overlook how the French have behaved in the last year, but there are a lot of Americans who are not going to forget which nations stuck with us and which nations sided with our enemies in the war on terrorism.
