Haven't snoped this yet... may be a hoax? They're shitheads IMO anyway, so I don't mind slamming them.

FRENCH SMEAR BRITISH DEAD

By SIMON HUGHES

SICK French yobs daubed a swastika and vile anti-war slurs at a cemetery for 11,000 British troops.

The showpiece cenotaph at the graveyard in Northern France was smeared in red paint with the words: "Dig up your rubbish. It's fouling our soil."

Other slogans at the Etaples cemetery near Boulogne included "Death to the Yankees" and "Saddam Hussein will win and spill your blood."

And the vandals wrote "Rosbeefs go home" - the French insult for Brits is roast-beefs. Prime Minister Tony Blair and US President George Bush were also branded war criminals.

The graffiti was discovered by a shocked gardener and spotted by around 80 visitors. It was cleaned off the same day.

Roy Hemmington - spokesman for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission - said: "We are deeply offended. This is the strongest language and most vile graffiti I have witnessed at a war graves cemetery.

"The suggestion that the bodies of soldiers who died for France should be dug up is particularly foul."

Most soldiers buried at the cemetery were defending France at the Somme and Ypres during World War I.

Another 122 are troops who died fighting the Nazis in World War II.

Among the dead are a winner of the Victoria Cross, 217 holders of the Military Medal and 69 holders of the Military Cross.

A number had been awarded France's top military decoration, the Legion d'Honneur.

Roy added: "Almost every British regiment has war dead here. This insults just about the entire British Army."

Anti-British feeling has been whipped up in France since President Jacques Chirac refused to let the UN back action against Iraq.

Last night Jim Kelleher, chief clerk to the Royal Fusiliers Association, said: "No sane person would do this. It is a disgrace. I have family buried in France and if I could get my hands on whoever did this I'd bury them too."

Jeremy Lillies, of the Royal British Legion, added: "It is distressing."

The Sun's Military Adviser Major-General Perkins said: "It is despicable."

Appalled local MP Jacques Lang said: "It is an attack on the memory of the British and American soldiers who contributed to the liberation of our soil."

Police captain Thibault Martin added: "It is sick and cowardly."

The shocking news comes as a new poll reveals that a third of the French want SADDAM to win the war.

A massive 78 per cent of 1,000 people in the poll by French newspaper Le Monde disapproved of the Allied action.

But 16 per cent "really wish for" a Coalition victory - while 37 per cent said they would prefer one.

Disturbing and it wasn't a hoax. Didn't they also burn and deface the replica of the Statue Of Liberty last week in France?

Some 33% of the French want Iraq to win.

[email protected] the damn French. Buncha damn pastry eatin' homos. They dont quite grasp what is happening. If they hate America so much, send some of those limp wristed fairies they call troops into Iraq to help the Republican Guard out. Just more target practice for our boys. Screw 'em.

Seems like the French have forgotten that if it wasn't for the U.S. they would all be speaking GERMAN! Besides, who can trust a country that can't build a car worth a damn!
