    You choose the punishment.

    [QUOTE]
    ORCAS ISLAND, Wash. Vandals burned dozens of small American flags that decorated veterans' graves for Memorial Day and replaced many of them with hand-drawn swastikas, authorities said Monday.
    Forty-six flag standards were found empty and another 33 flags were in charred tatters Sunday in the cemetery, authorities said. Swastikas drawn on paper appeared where 14 of the flags had been.
    Members of the American Legion on this island off Washington's northwest coast replaced the burned flags with new ones Sunday afternoon.
    The vandals struck again on Memorial Day after a guard left at dawn, the San Juan County sheriff's office said. This time, the vandals left 33 of the hand-drawn swastikas.
    "This is not an act of free speech. This is a crime," Sheriff Bill Cumming said in a statement released Monday afternoon.
    Sheriff's department officials declined to comment further on Monday.[QUOTE]

    Drop them out of planes over North Korea, China, Afghanistan, Iran, etc...... They'll figure out pretty quick how "bad" and "unfair" it really was over here in this great country.

    I agree..parachutes optional......

    I am generally a pretty easy going person, it takes ALOT to get me steamed, but seeing an article like this one really burns me up. I don't understand why people would deface or harm the memory of soldiers who died to protect the right for them to do be able to speak freely. talk about biting the hand that feeds you.

    Man, that is just sad. I would say they should have to meet and listen to all of the families who have lost their loved ones, fighting for this country, but I can't imagine that would get through to that type of person. Yeah, tattoo an American flag on their *** and send them walking into Gaza.

    Re: You choose the punishment.

    People are entitled to free speech, but that doesn't encompass vandalism...if you think those vets are nazis, then FINE. That's THEIR opinion (its a ******* opinion, but their entitled to it.) BUT once you disgrace someone's grave thats vandalism and just disgusting. I agree with Hilton Magic's punishment!

    Re: You choose the punishment.

    I know those *ssholes, at least by reputation. Right after 9/11, we had some soldiers working out of the reserve unit in Des Moines at Indian Island Army Depot, which is near to there. They were leaving a restaurant when a bunch of teen to twenty-somethings ran up to them and spit on them.

    And this is right after 9/11. It appears there is an area from Portland to Vancouver that needs to be carpet-bombed. Lots of cranial inversion going on up there.

    This area of the country is hippyville and treehugger land. All they do is smoke dope and talk about how great things could be in this world with no concept of reality.

    All of these activists and special interest groups need to realize where they are. If millions of men and women had not joined the separate military branches and fought for the freedoms we enjoy today, they could not spout off their hatred for American policy in certain areas or say how the animals need to be treated better than humans.

    Provide them with a tattoo of the Star and Stripes, the full length of their back.

    This is a very ignorant statement on many different levels.

    If they don't like America, then get out.

    It's that simple.

    Draft each and every one of these and other idiots, including Cindy Sheenhan, and send them all overseas. I'm sure we have enough idiots in our nation to bring the soldiers home from war permanently...
