Veterans support local Iraqi restaurant after vandalism (Video)

Iraqi war veterans poured in to the Babylon Restaurant in Lowell, MA to show their support after a string of hate-crimes left their front window shattered. The restaurant is owned by an Iraqi family that recently immigrated to the U.S.

    Note to America… This is what it is to be American.


    The rest of the world.

    Don't vote Republican in 2012. Chive on and be Americans.

      Dont vote republican? Yea cause this democratic regime thats currently in charge has done a great job. Before you speak next time turn on the news and see the shit storm that our country is in. And not that bull crap that your shitty liberal arts college pedals off to you.

      • Stubbs

        And you are clearly part of the solution, aren't you?

      a nice comment ruined by the "Don't vote Republican in 2012" bullshit. it's this shit that divides our country. some vets did a nice thing (and were not peddling any political idealogies) and you feel the need to tarnish it with this divel.

      love, a bona fide democrat

    @ highspeedmofo – Your undereducated comment makes no fuckin sense. Reread and recomment with some sense and a valid argument.

      Lol okay hitler. Matter of fact why don't you go read about him. It's those exact words that you said that lead to him destroying the world.

      Was it because he used too many big words?

    Respect. Iraqis are just like us they just want to live in peace.

    This is awesome.
    I wish there were more depictions like this of America, vs. pictures of slobs titled "Only in America".

  • Glennder

    I will be there next week. Work 20 minutes away…

    I have served in this United States Army for a decade. I have spent 27 months over three deployments in Iraq. I have spent an additional 6 months in Kuwait, 3 months in Guatemala, and am currently working on a 9 month deployment to Djibouti. For those congratulating the Veterans on their support, thank you. For those who are saying disparaging comments about the situation, fuck you. I fight for your right to talk shit about these Iraqi immigrants, but I also fight for my right to remind you that you are epic fucktards who contribute little to society. This Veteran organization makes me proud. That is all.
