    PS : NSFW.
    Like I said when the whole brou-ha-ha about the snipers pissing on Taliban was going on; if anyone thinks that war isn't bloody, gory, and desensitizing, or that the human mind doesn't react to horror with humor as a survival mechanism, then they have no experience with what they are talking about. They burned some bodies? So what? Unless they were throwing living people onto the pyres, I'm not really seeing the problem here

    There's a book out by a Canadian journalist called, "The Dogs Are Eating Them Now." He'd been attached to a Canadian army unit in Afghanistan and some of them had dragged a couple Taliban bodies out into a field, hoping to bait the enemy into coming to get them in the night. It didn't work, and the quote is from the soldier reporting that the trap had failed.
    see, now that? That's funny, right there

    I can just see some guy peeking over or around with a scope, turning back and saying "Well, ****. The dogs are eating them now." those afghan dogs are no joke - I had a buddy get sent home by one, all tore up.

    I wouldn't want our troops having to worry about checking for religious ID cards when dealing with enemy corpses.

    I'm just wondering why they were posing for photos with dead bodies. I think a psych eval is warranted.

    I actually don't see any evidence that these individuals are Marines.

    Only two photo shots of someone in a uniform given in the article and I see no identifying markers: unit badges on shoulders, etc.

    You can buy military uniforms in a large number of places. Until there's investigation and they determine that they are, in fact, soldiers, I'm not going to give it much attention.

    If they didn't burn them the same people would be bitching about them allowing disease to spread.

    Of course liberals are outraged. I mean, my God...what do they think they are, American flags?

    Now those deserve to be burned. Am I right?

    I agree that burning bodies is kind of grisly. However, as other posters have pointed out, it might've very well been necessary given the circumstances (assuming that the photos are legitimate, of course).
    Yeah that was my first though...should be pretty known by now that you don't take pictures like that because they spread everywhere. Other than the PR problems it creates *shrug*
