    As for this issue...I dont expect everyone to serve in the military. I DO expect everyone to do their job as a citizen. I dont expect this story not to bother people...but I DO expect people to at least attempt to put themselves in their position before they rush to judgement of others.
    Here's your statement "Cant help but wonder how many of those expressing outrage have worn the uniform and 'been there'." Sounds to me like you are saying that unless you have worn the uniform you can't comment on it.

    How do I differ from you when I said that I don't expect everyone to serve in the military either. But I believe most American families have had at least one member in the military to know what it is like to have a loved one fighting in a war. You can stop with the crap about Clinton and Obama as they both have had family members served so can relate. A Romney has never served this country. Period.

    What code of honor? How about providing us a copy? I never saw one during my enlistment.

    It may be disgusting, but hardly surprising, their action encapsulates in their limited way the entire sweep of American foreign policy.

    How do you know any of what you just said is fact? What is fact is that most military men and women don't video themselves doing things that the lily white, flag waving, yellow magnet Americans can't stomach seeing. That is the only fact.

    Re: U.S. Marines Urinate On Dead Bodies In Afghanistan

    A Marine vet buddy of mine told me that they used to cut off the genitals and sew them to the lips of the enemy soldiers. This was done preferably to an enemy soldier that was still alive. Then they would disembowel them and stretch their intestines out to their full length (30 ft) in front of them.

    This practice was done by both sides and my friend said that he didn't know which side started it, but it was sad to come across one of your own, still alive in this predicament. Scorsese put a scene about this in one of his Nam Vet movies.

    Pissing on the dead pales in comparison.

    You would be wrong.

    Pee'ing on the dead bodies of Taliban. **** COIN. The only bad thing that happened here was the movie got out to the public. This was just a passive release of stress. No harm don.

    Then you would imagine wrong....

    While I don't think it was the smartest or most mature move in the world, I don't see all that much wrong with it. Those bodies represent the scum of the earth, and urinating on them is about the least of the things that I would not mind seeing done to them.

    This is unbecoming of a marine or anyone else in uniform. I don't think they should be kicked out, but I definitely think nonjudicial punishment (Article 15 for the Army not sure what the Marines call it) should be done for these marines. It would be the same as if a marine was in uniform drunk and beligerant in public. He is still held accountable for his actions especially while in uniform.

    I'm sure that's what they were thinking while they were doing it. That you think it isn't surprising encapsulates in its limited way your thought of the American serviceman.
