    Default Danish memorial stone Vandalized

    Some ....... have on the to Wednesday vandalized a memorial stone put up for the Danish KIA's in Afghanistan. They poured red paint out onto the stone that had to be revealed Wednesday at midday. The stone was cleaned up in time for the ceremony. The reason should be that the war is embarrassing and lost. Maybe not too far off. However i don't understand why they take it out on the soldiers killed there They followed their orders and fought for something they thought was right. It's not a soldiers choice going to war or not. The idiots probably think the soldiers should have "rebelled against the system" or something along those lines.

    There is no pics in the news media.

    It really does defy belief that people think that by defacing a stone honouring the dead, they are making a valid political point. Whether you agree with a particular military action or not, this was a memorial to the young solidiers who gave their lives in service of the country. Their government sent them to Afghanistan and they died doing their duty. Irrespective of whether you agree with the politics, the dead should be treated with respect.

    We have a signficant problem in this country with low life scum stealing the brass plaques from war memorials to melt down for a few 's. If they got caught, I think a one way ticket to Helmand would be a very good idea.....

    Yes. They should be dumped in the "green zone" all covered in ISAF patches and blank rounds in their rifles.

    Evil braindead people can do these things because there are no effective laws who protect military memorial stones, or other memorials.

    It makes me so angry to read things like this. I am boiling inside.

    Laws can not protect anything. As Paul already said: it happens everywhere. Also here in Estonia. If somebody wants to fight, it is OK. But do not fight with the dead soldiers or graveyards. Actually it is true that the war ends when the last veteran is dead. So WWII ends pretty soon, only 10-15 years to wait...

    Some of the pics are from the ceremony the morons tried to spoil, with no luck. The stone with the to "carved" Danish flags are the one that was vandalized with paint. No media showed pics of the vandalized stone

    Those bloody idiots(for use of better words) no man who gave his life for his country should be degraded! This is one of few things that will make me blow a gasket. You don't deface a soldier or soldier's memorial. I hope they catch who ever did this.
