    Default Families' outrage at Libya war graves desecration

    Families of British Second World War soldiers whose graves were desecrated by extremists in Libya have spoken of their outrage at the attacks.

    Vivid footage posted on the internet shows a crowd of men casually kicking and smashing lines of neat white headstones at the main Commonwealth War Graves in Benghazi.

    Around 150 memorials were systematically overturned, many of them shattered, while a sandstone cross was smashed with sledge hammers.

    Last night relatives of British serviceman buried at the cemetery told The Daily
    Telegraph of their shock at the "terrible" vandalism.

    The cemetery outside the Libyan second city, the headquarters of anti-Gaddafi forces during last yearís revolution, is the final resting place of more than 1,200 soldiers and airmen who died serving under Montgomery in the war in the desert.

    Many of them were members of the 7th Armoured Division, the Desert Rats, who helped turn the tide of the war in their struggle for control of north Africa against Rommelís forces between 1941 and 1943.

    There is a part of my mind that says "do not judge them equally", but I am starting to have a hard time with listening to that part of my mind, and starting to want to listen to the part that says "the majority of them are pond scum and need to be eliminated."
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
