    Yes, we should instead be talking about the despicable behavior of the Taliban, and suicide bombers and their indiscriminate murder of women and children.

    Many hypocrites on this thread with their fake moral outrage....

    How awesome it is seeing a 500lb bomb drop and you go wow, man!... that was ****ing awesome!!! But show them the end result of piles of unrecognizable burned flesh and guts....and the fake moral outrage.

    As I said before, if killing them isn't offensive, neither are their bodies.

    Now, back to the kitchen...sumtin' is burnin'

    How can you say, blowing someones legs off is ok as long as it has a military purpose/objective, but then taking a stupid pic with their disfigured limbs is a war crime?

    Tell me, wise one?
    You really cant figure out the difference between taking a life in war, and openly mocking a dead body by posing it and tkaing pictures to exploit the dead while you are representing America? You are messing with me.

    Killing them is not offensive. Their bodies are not offensive. Posing the dead body to mock them for your own amusement is ****ing disgusting. You bury the dead, you dont use a dead body as a toy.

    The Taliban doing something DOES NOT justify the American troops doing it. That type of statement is no better than Adam and the other super libs justifying everything Obama does by pointing to soemthing Bush did.

    You being emotional and its understandable

    Google it....

    Google reveals many pics of WWII vintage American soldiers and grunts posing with dead enemy combatants. There was no outrage, no apology. There was and IS war, and all that war entails.

    Uh huh...I get that...But tell me....Where is the protest by Afghanis? Are they out in the streets over this? Or is it possible that they hate Taliban suicide bombers more?

    ANY person, especially someone representing America, that chooses to mock the dead in war shows a total disrespect and they are an embarrassment. WWII or today is no different. Just because someone did it 50 years ago doesnt make it ok today.
