Possible backlash to video of Marines pissing on Taliban corpses

Let me just say that, in the abstract, I don’t have a problem with pissing on the Taliban. The idea that it’s okay to shoot and kill someone, but not pee on them, strikes me as peculiar. As though a video of them getting shot wouldn’t make anyone mad, but now it’s over the line.

That said, what kind of an idiot films this? Do people have NO concept of the nature of this war? There’s a pretty good rule of warfare: if you’re going to do anything you shouldn’t, turn off the damn cameras.

  1. I honestly don’t get why anyone would a) film it and b) do it to begin with.  You’d think with all the publicity of all the abuse stuff that the men and women fighting in these conflicts would start to get a friggin clue?  Being a soldier isn’t an exempt card from idiocy.

  2. I wonder who “leaked” the story….

  3. We invade their country, we shoot and kill them, we disrepect them while arguably “helping” them, we violate the Geneva Conventions.   And pissing on their dead bodies is somehow  inconsistent with our behavior? 

  4. fuck’em i would piss on them then shit on their faces after i cut off their dicks and stuck them in their ass! BACKlash F-U dumb ass. they are after us and will not stop’

    • You DO realize that this is why they hate us, right? Like, they’re “after us and will not stop” because they see Americans as anti-Islamic? Also, as for reading up on the history of war, what you’re basically saying is that it’s okay to do this, because the Viet Cong and Nazis did it too? Wow. And here I thought the USA was better.

      • When I saw this jumble of vomit based posting this morning my first thought was “Wow, and people wonder why the world hates America.” 

        The thing is, America isn’t the “greatest Country in the world” anymore, and if it doesn’t start playing nice with the other countries, they’re gonna start coming together to do something about it. 

        Personally the whole “The President is the Leader of the Free World” thing has always bugged me and a great example of US arrogance.  Who decided that was the case?  Because, Canada’s pretty freakin free and I don’t remember having a voice in who becomes leader, except for who is the Canadian PM.  Britain’s free and as far as I know, no Brit’s ever had a chance to voice who they want to have as their “LFW™”.

        Like it or not, the US has to join the rest of the world, it can’t be “This is America and we say this so do it” like it was in the past.  Problem is, people like this guy still live blindly in that past, and it’s people like him that are going to be the downfall of the USA.

      • There’s an Al Franken bit in his book “Liars” that explains it well. Loving your country like an adult means recognizing its faults and doing what you can to help it improve. Children stamp their feet and insist everything America does is perfect and should never be changed.

        You have a new friend!  Reckon John Galt has fallen off the meth wagon and is posting as KEITHTUR59?
