    Very hard for me to watch the videos because I have several friends whose names are listed there.

    What words can we use here - most are bannable! A few remain ......

    Disgust - revulsion - outrage, and deep deep sadness that some person or persons feel the need to desicrate the Wall - it is hard to even begin to get into their mindset.

    I will never understand why anyone would do such a thing. Even if I didnt/dont agree with the politics of the war, why take it out on those who didnt make the policy?

    The Good News

    According to what I've been able to dig up, it sounds like the Memorial will survive, a bit of sandblasting and a special chemical coating agent will be applied by the company that maintains the integrity of the stonework. These guys sound like they know what to do.

    Cowardice exists in many forms. This act was one.

    What is really great is that the wall is granite. It will survive, and so will the names thereupon.

    I have no forum-acceptable words.

    We need court-ordered caning as a punishment for this sort of thing.

    Why?

    What purpose did spraying oil serve?

    Magazine <> clip - know the difference

    I can't even speak the outrage that I feel... doing so would definitely get me banned from here... for a long long long time...

    What everyone else has said plus more that can't be printed. Some very close friends are there. Two that were not 5' away at the time they became eligible for their names to appear on the wall.

    The names of a lot of my EOD friends are on that wall. Many other folks who i had the priviledge of knowing have their names on that wall. The names of a couple of cousins are in that wall. My brothers' name is on that wall.

    This is what happens when the antis in the congress of the US run roughshod over a senior military general. This is what happens when political hacks put an ad in a national newspaper accusing the CG in Iraq of "betrayal." When members of congress show blatant disrespect for our military, we can expect this kind of low life trash to happen. i gotta puke.
