Yellow bellies graffiti General Patton Museum

Unidentified vandals spray-painted anti-war slogans on the General Patton Memorial Museum at Chiriaco Summit, CA, last week. In an act apparently related to the conflict in Iraq, aerosol can-wielding cowards defaced 19 tanks and symbols of American military honor. The graffiti ranged from "No War" to "America is evil." One tank was labeled "Alla is God." Muslim experts pointed out the misspelling of Allah was a clear indication the vandals weren't Muslim.
