Commonweath War Graves desecrated as 'Iraq abuse revenge'

#2
I don't know Viro, there's something damned odd about this.

Why aren't the cemeteries in Syria, Lebanon and indeed Iraq getting violated?

Obviously, the Mirror has it's part to play, and the Dear leader (May angels anoint his head etc etc) apologising on Frog TV (There u go Lads, the PM says you're all guilty) for various alleged abuses.

I don't know, it's bloody criminal, but there is something bugging me.

Perhaps it was the Israelis though I must admit the photos on the BBC had the swastikas the wrong way round and one would think that the jews of all people would know the differance.

Seriously for all those who cannot recognise heavy irony there is a very savvy political element working within Palestine which knows how to work people into a frenzy. Get people to desecrate graveyards, get people to blow themselves up next to schoolchildren and get daft twats in the House of Commons to agree with you.

also noteworthy is that every picture I saw taped to the gravestones was of US soldiers abusing prisoners.

Today's Daily Express shows some graves with different pictures. They are, of course, the fake ones from the Mirror.

It all boils down to Piers and his lovely pictures!

He has inflamed the whole situation in search of selling more papers. If a Brit is killed because of this, then he should be hauled up for manslaughter. :evil:

Question: Re the Piers et al fake pics scenario - surely he is technically guilty of treason? Especially since the troubles in Basra have inflamed as a direct result of his tripe and 'bounties' have been put on our lads and lasses' heads?

Thus ANY further injuries/fatalities can be directly atributed to the Mirror?

Now seen.

Wonder if Piers is feeling good about this? Will the Mirror show the gravestones with "Their" photos?

Time for Mr. Morgan to be left in a room with a bottle of Scotch and a single round in a Webley.

Good point well made. Ok chaps Let's see how Morgans actions stand up to the charges shall we? Here is a few random definitions of treason (and I have to say Piers old boy it's not looking too jolly for you). :twisted:

TREASON

1 A crime that undermines the offender's government
guilty or not guilty?

2 Disloyalty by virtue of subversive behavior
guilty or not guilty?

3 An act of deliberate betrayal
guilty or not guilty?

4 A crime against the government of a country.
guilty or not guilty?

5 Killing the sovereign, making war against the sovereign or instigating a foreigner to make an armed invasion , or having sexual intercourse with the wife of a sovereign 8O
guilty or not guilty?

6 Plotting against a ruler or government; someone who commits treason is called a traitor
guilty or not guilty?

7 Violation of allegiance toward one's country or sovereign, especially the betrayal of one's country by waging war against it or by consciously and purposely acting to aid its enemies.
guilty or not guilty?

8 A betrayal of trust or confidence.
guilty or not guilty?

Its sad how the descercration of graves of soldiers who died nearly 80 years ago has been caused by the Daily Mirrors lack of foresight.

These soldiers died in a different war in a different century and should be left to rest in peace.

Again, Morgan, I hope one of your hacks reads this.

I see where you are coming from, but in general terms, I dont think that doing papers for treason would be setting a good precedent. In this case, you have a valid argument, but future unscrupulous governments could use the law to persecute honourable whistle blowers to protect their own hides, rather than the interests of the state.

Should we not now be demanding a full judicial inquiry into the actions of Piers Moron and his "News"paper?

Everyone else seems to want one, funded by Legal Aid.

Why not those who are actually being fired upon as a result of his greed and stupidity?

Hanging for treason was abolished some time ago. Perhaps he should be invited instead to interview some of those nice people who are shooting at UK personnel in S Iraq? Wearing uniform, of course, like the people in his photos?
 
#15
On a related but somewhat tangental note all the talk of treason etc. got me thinking.

If any serving Service personnel (or their partners?) can show that the distress caused by the publication of the pictures has affected either their mental state or inflamed the situation in the sandpit and they are injured can they not take a civil action for damages against the mirror in general or morgan in particular?

A few years ago I'd have laughed at just the idea but with the legal system being what it is I suspect there may be some milage in such a course of action. :roll:
 
#16
It's well worth going to court and demanding damages - and Legal Aid would almost certainly be available to the applicants.

Perhaps a class action of, say, 5,000 forces personnel and their families? v. Piers Moregone and Miroir Papers. That should provide some interesting damages claims.

Then the whisky and the revolver, once he has paid up.



:p

A Palestinian security source strongly condemned the desecration and promised "the necessary measures" against those responsible.
Given the blowback from the Mirror's recent perfidy maybe the folks in Gaza could use some help. If invited I would suggest England station about 5,000 troops in and around the memorial and Gaza generally to prevent extremists from returning to the scene of the crime. I would also suggest that each Blighmey (I think you call them "squaddie") carry a loaded digital camera in addition to their usual "kit" and that one satellite phone is provided for roughly twenty men.
Then maybe the next desecration can be captured digitally as well as thwarted physically.

Who knows, somebody might even catch a US helicoptor or two firing on some of the indigenous quadriplegic population or one of these guys,

a Catepillar made in the USA
crashing though hundreds of homes . . .

Wouldn't it be funny if the folks that desecrated the Commonwealth graves turned out to be Israeli . . .?
