    Just how stupid can you get?
    They pissed on dead Taliban,who the hell cares if other Taliban get pissed off.The only people who would be insulted are Taliban and Taliban sympathizers.The Taliban and Taliban sympathizers don't give two ****s about our government and troops trying to win the hearts and minds of the people and most likely oppose us trying to win the hearts and minds of the people in that country. Whining over over some marines pissing on dead terrorists is ****en idiotic and even more idiotic than the marine who posted the video online.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    actually there is a real downside, and that is inciting the opponent with motivation they otherwise would not have summoned but for your actions, to do you harm

    Ah yes, the ole "If you don't agree with me, you are a Taliban or Taliban sympathizer" fallacy.

    I can understand how people can get outraged by this. They have a gleaming view of the military and the epxectations of those that serve and how they should act right or wrong. People don't want our military pissing on dead bodies. The military doesn't want it's members pissing on dead bodies. That doesn't make anyone a Taliban or Taliban sympathizer just because they don't like what these marines did.

    I personally am not outraged by this, but the people that did it should not be suprised in the least if they are handed nonjudicial punishment because of this incident.

    So killing their buddies wouldn't motivate them?

    Get off my ass, Hatuey. You do this every once in a while, and it's growing tiresome.

    sure it would
    pissing on their buddies would also motivate them further

    here is an example of a population being motivated in a way it otherwise would not:

    The Taliban have done way much worse than piss on someone.If the only thing the Taliban did was piss on someone then I do not think our troops would still be in Afghanistan,heck I do not think our troops would have been sent to Afghanistan in the first place if all the Taliban did was just piss on people.
