    Reason behind terrorist actions...important. Reasons behind our soldiers actions...unimportant. Wonderful.
    So you can show that the same people that said "we need to understand terrorists" are the exact same people that also said "we should punish the soldiers to the full extent of the law"?

    Not all liberals are the same just like not all conservatives are the same. Nice intellectual dishonesty there though. Just saying.

    Having talked with many I have yet to hear one conservative ever mention understanding the hardship of the terrorist and the oppressive and invasive policies of the United States that justifies the terrorists fighting back and I have heard MANY liberals argue just that. I think that Zyphlins statement is spot-****ing-on.

    Not really... encouraging or bashing. Neither would constitute whining... that is, unless you are whining about me whining about his whining.

    Exactly stop whining. Their act should be punished under the military rules Just like Lyndsy England was. I want them judged faily, but they must face consequences. Her consequenses were to be kicked out. I would think the same rules should apply to these men.

    What military law discusses peeing on a dead enemy combatant?

    Well depends on how they want to do this. They can use the general conduct unbecoming or they can be specific in "public exposure". Either way the Marine Corps has even denounced this act as wrong. Not sure why you are arguing it's illegality.

    Again, you need to actually read what I typed.

    Show me where the majority of liberals said that we need to "We need to wait to find out what was wrong with the terrorists in 9/11" AND are denouncing the Marines quickly. Go ahead.

    Platoon commander among Marines who urinated on corpses, officials say


    One of the Marines shown urinating on three corpses in Afghanistan in a widely distributed Internet video was the unit's platoon commander, two U.S. military officials have told McClatchy, raising concerns that poor command standards contributed to an incident that may have damaged the U.S. war effort.

    Even before the unit deployed to southern Afghanistan last year, it suffered from disciplinary problems while the troops were based at Camp Lejeune, N.C., the officials said.

    As Pentagon officials investigate the incident _ the latest in a string of high-profile cases of U.S. troops abusing Afghans and Iraqis on the battlefield _ the revelations renew questions about whether the U.S. military will hold commanders responsible when their troops misbehave or commit crimes.

    Despite U.S. military doctrine stating that commanders ultimately are responsible for their units' behavior in combat _ and Geneva conventions barring the desecration of dead bodies _ the Pentagon rarely has charged commanders in cases where troops have knowingly killed, injured or mistreated Afghans and Iraqis. Instead, lower-ranking troops or those directly responsible for crimes have been charged while commanders have only faced administrative penalties, like dismissal or demotion.

    Experts say that the U.S. military hasn't made the treatment of locals on the battlefield a priority for commanders. However, the military in Afghanistan has found that coalition troops' behavior toward Afghans, including such acts as urinating in front of them, is a contributor to what one U.S. report last year called "a crisis of trust and cultural incompatibility" that has sometimes led to Afghan soldiers turning their weapons on their coalition partners."
