    Your contention is that only the one who took the pictures could face court martial?

    No, that's not my contention. My contention is that the general order addresses photography of bodies, not handling of bodies. This goes back to my statement "you don't know what they actually violated."

    Why don't these bleeding heart pacifists go over and give out free blow-jobs to these Taliban bastards if they feel that much love for them.

    They are our ****ing enemy. Slice 'em, dice 'em and julianne fry 'em. Film it and put a sound track behind it. I'd pay to watch.

    **** the Taliban. Some of you folks need to figure out who the ****ing enemy is. It ain't our soldiers. (That is, unless you are Taliban or one of their sympathizers. And if you are, I do hope to see you smiling at the camera soon.)

    What is the source of your premise that desecration of corpses only means photographing them?

    There is a lot to see in it and I think everyone should see it often if they are paying for it. We have had over ten years of this in Afghanistan, lets get this out and let everyone decide if it is what we want to pay for.

    All of these guys who are doing this are a disgrace to the United States and the military.
    No it's not! Who the hell cares if they posed with some dead bad guys. I mean, really!

    The only disgrace, are the folks that get their draws in a twist over this.

    That's not what I said, Cat. The source is the general order...and the only thing in that order remotely relating to the incident is the photography of human casualties.

    What does driving under the influence and drug use have to do with what we are talking about? Those are both violations of specific articles of the UCMJ.

    Thanks, that pic makes me smile. The way I hear it these guys sorta blew up prematurely before they could take anyone with them, I would buy a little piece of them in a jar of formaldehyde and put it on my mantle if I could.
