    Can Guards Of The Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier Arrest, Detain, And/or Shoot At Those Who Disobey The Rules? For example, crossing the chains/rails onto the plaza of the Tomb where the Guards are. They tell them that they are not supposed to be on there in a strict tone, but what can they do if they do not listen and/or resist?

    • Curator says:

      I’m sure Capitol police are somewhere nearby to arrest/detain anyone interfering or desecrating the site.

      Military police can arrest someone on a military base, but their jurisdiction usually ends at the gate.

      If someone were to do something, I’m sure the protocol is to call it in and Capitol police would take over. They’re more of a ‘ceremonial’ thing…not literal.

      If someone were to attack them, I can guarantee you they can use that weapon to beat the assailant back, but it’s not their job to arrest anyone.

    Is The Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier A Violation Of The 1st Amendment? Is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier a violation of the First Amendment?
    “Known but to God”

    Excuse me but this is a SECULAR country, the constitution forbids a link between Church and State, why didn’t it include Pagan Gods etc

    You can’t pander to Christians and Jews, that isn’t fair, I say take it down and replace it with something secular and atheistic such as “Known to no one” if this memorial was in the UK and atheists asked it to be changed, it would be! That is freedom from religion.

    • Curator says:

      God is secular….”In God we trust” etc. If it said “Known to Jesus” then it would be unconstitutional. Or if it said Allah or Buddha it would be unconstitutional. So your trolling fails.

    • Curator says:

      The original Tomb contains the unidentified remains of a US Soldier from WWI. The “Unidentifieds” from WWII and Korea are interred separately, but adjacent to, the original Tomb.

    Why Aren’t Liberals Outraged That Obama Urinates On Dead US Soldiers Every Day? Liberals get outraged at a bunch of Muslim terrorists being urinated on, but don’t talk about the fact that Obama urinates on our dead soldiers every day.

    He cut & ran from Iraq – therefore making all the US soldiers that died, die in vain. That is Obama’s urination on those soldiers.

    You know the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier? Obama went and urinated on that. Then he urinated on the Vietnam War Memorial. Obama went to Mount Vernon and urinated on Washington’s grave.

    • Curator says:

      But if we hadnt gone into Iraq in the first place to find thosenonexistant WMDs (that alcoholic texas cowboy Bush lied about) then they wouldt have been dead in the first place.The warmongering neocunts wont be happy unless we annex iraq and make it the 51st state.
