Back in February I ran the story of the graves of WWII British troops being smashed and desecrated by Libyan Muslims. And this was part of a ghastly pattern. Worse, the police were afraid to arrest the perps. Under the sharia government that Obama helped to install in Libya, this act of desecration is righteous, hence the fear.
The desecration in Benghazi, Libya has happened again. When such a crime goes unpunished, it's a sign of weakness that's an invitation for a repeat offense.
OT but related, there are American war dead buried in Tripoli, Libya. They were killed in 1804 during the first foreign war, the first Barbary war, Islam's first war on the US (not just one but two wars, the first and second Barbary war). They should be exhumed and brought home a/s/a/p.

THERE has been another war graves attack at a cemetery in Libya which contains the remains of Australian soldiers.
Authorities say a headstone has been damaged and temporary markers removed from some graves at the Commonwealth War Cemetery in Benghazi."The nationality of the individual buried beneath the headstone that was damaged is not yet known,'' the Department of Veterans' Affairs (DVA) said today.
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission is working to identify the individual and to restore any damage. It will also replace the removed grave markers as soon as possible.
The department said it was in the process of determining if Australian war graves were affected.
If any were, they would be "respectfully restored and maintained".
Australian graves were among 198 damaged at Benghazi cemetery in February.
