Ignorant savages. If this is because some Private Snuffies chucked a bag of old Korans on the fire in Afghanistan BY MISTAKE I'm sorry for that. I despair of our efforts in the Middle East. You can't deal sensibly with Islamists who have a mindset like that. Bastards desecrating the graves of the dead like that. It makes me glad to know that we usually bring back our war dead to lie in the hallowed ground of our country.

I lived in Libya for 7 years in the 90's, and used to wind em up by insisting that the UK was more Islamic than any Islamic countries because we healed the sick, upheld the law (mostly),worked for a living (mostly), had proper equality, gave to the poor by law etc etc etc. Even our clever dick Eygptian Medico had a problem arguing with those facts.
Trouble with these countries is that what passes for education usually consists of keeping clear of the randy Imam, and reciting Koranic verses, and that is pretty much it, hence the predominance of ignorant headbangers.

Very carefully stage managed by the local people in charge. They went for the first several rows, the easiest to reach and best for close-ups, but had a person on hand to keep the "spontaneously impassioned" from from going beyond the script. This is solidarity theatre.

The firm that produced the cross should be commended. It held up quite well.

Whatever funds we will eventually send to support their rise from "tyranny to freedom" should be docked for the repairs.

After we've docked the cost of flying telegraph poles, flying Nigels and the bangy things they dropped, the cost of the big grey boats, that of the Spook Squad with their laptops and the bits of paper they carried with their super secret passwords and the cost of whatever hardware we gave them which is now being used to guard a bunch of football hooligans kicking the shit out of gravestones?

I wont be holding my breath.

I,ve got a copy of the Koran, it,s on the bookshelf next to The Bible, what should I do with them without causing offence when I tell everyone as I now do not intend keeping said books (especially the Koran, as at least there,s a bit of sex and violence in't Bilble)

You'd think that after Kosovo we'd have learned not to trust automatically anyone who's having the shit kicked out of them by the local security forces. Sometimes, they damned well deserve it.

If only politicians would learn - the moment 'moral imperative' becomes the reason for state policy is the time to re-examine the policy. It's probably bollocks.

A general view is seen of Tripoli Military Cemetery for soldiers who died in World War II in Tripoli August 13, 2012. The cemetery was built by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission in Tripoli. Picture taken August 12, 2012. REUTERS/Esam Al-Fetori (LIBYA - Tags: SOCIETY MILITARY)


Perhaps Reuters was just being PC, but there is no mention of fresh vandalism to the site.

That's always been the problem with freedom, people aspire to it, suffer for it, struggle for it, fight and perhaps die for it, but when they finally get it they seem to think they can do what the **** they like!

These are the people William Hague refers to as freedom fighters of democracy.

You think a little destruction of a few graves woke you up, you just wait till another 7/7 or 9/11 happens and we will see the stupid west talk about more operation freedoms.

Lets dictators rule over ignorant people, you need democractic people for democracy to work.

Islamists do not consider democracy as equal to their beduion ways.

What's democractic mean?

You rambling ******* mong, I hope you drown in a weir.

We should have helped their struggle for democracy by giving them a few of our old nuclear warheads, delivered about 500ft above the centre of Tripoli, Bengazhi, Sirte and a couple of other dusty scum-holes.

It sems to me that the majority of post-war revolts in the middle east have exchanged a bad set of rulers for a worse set.

Persia, Iraq, Algeria, Libya, and I would guess Syria. Why is thw west helping rebels in the first place? It hasn't turned out well so far; even Mr Blair is struggling to keep peace and harmony going out there, and he's a professional at negotiating.
