    What exactly was their mission if not this? If you want Girl Scouts selling cookies, you have to send Girl Scouts. If you want Obama to bow and give BJs, you have to send Obama.

    I find it hard to give a ****. Dead enemies are dead... which is sort of the point of war, in part at least. Burning bodies for sanitary reasons has been practiced in many times and places when burial was not feasible. Etc.

    I dunno, nothing particularily shocking, my opinion. Like the one comment said, which is worse, a burned skeleton or a rotting corpse?
    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.

    So let's see. US soldiers attempting to thwart disease by burning the rotting remains of enemy fighters deemed worthless by their own comrades is considered shocking.

    Seems to me the bleeding hearts need to screw themselves.

    The concern here is that burning the bodies is against Muslim religious requirements for burial. Burning bodies, like decapitation, is believed to keep the dead from reaching heaven. This is on par with burning a Koran.

    Personally, I don't blame these soldiers. Anything that helps dissuade jihadis from seeking their 72 virgins is A-OK with me.

    : If cremation isn't an option, perhaps the bleeding hearts should consider digging holes in the ground for the enemy graves, saving themselves from such a shock! Seriously, you couldn't make this stuff up if you tried!

    Good evening, ocean515.

    Better question: Who was stupid enough to photograph it?

    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).

    The pictures tell the stories. The bodies were rotting and decayed. This is sensationalist tripe.
