    It's idiotic to think the bad guys would want to kill us any more they already do.

    What you posted makes no sense compared to what you were asked. No sense at all.

    Lets go over this again shall we? My father served in in WW2 fighting the Germans. He said he never heard anything about troops urinating on the dead. You claimed that it happened. So I ask you again - what evidence do you have of this?

    I said that such modern bad behavior could endanger US troops down the road because payback could be expected from foreign combatants enraged about US troops doing such things. You claimed that my concerns were IDIOTIC now saying that they already want to kill us. And what about motivating others who had not previously harbored that sort of ill will toward our troops? What about US troops not killed but captured and now its payback time?

    Do you have such little concern for our troops in foreign hot spots that you would accept such behavior with less than even a cavalier shrug of your shoulders?

    I never said anything about urinating. I was referring to acts, such as Marines chopping the heads off of Japanese soldiers, boiling the flesh off the skull and keeping the skull as a trophy.

    That's a load of crap. Service dogs are highly respected, and most soldiers have a soft spot for dogs. One nutbag doing something crazy is no reason to indict all soldiers and the military. Do you claim that all Muslims are terrorists?

    You are now clearly lying.

    From YOUR OWN post 1496 in which you led with my statement as follows:

    My father served in World War II in eastern europe. He even spent parts of two years in a german prisoner of war camp. The damn Nazi's were not only trying to kill him - they were trying to destroy our very nation. He had more reasons than these current combatants to hate the enemy.

    I asked him if he knew of any incidents of American troops urinating upon the enemy dead when he served and se said he never heard of such a thing.
    Your reply to that statement that you saw fit to quote and reproduce

    Your dad didn't hear of it, but it happened.
    So now you lie saying that you were not talking about urinating on dead bodies when you clearly and unmistakably were replying about just that very thing.

    I've never known what to make of this story. I don't see the virtue in this story ever having run in the first place. It is inflammatory for no legitimate purpose IMO.

    I don't really care if soldiers did this. They'll probably get in trouble for not following marine code, but why is it worth a public article? Who gives a crap, its war, they seem to be asserting their dominance over the Taliban... this war isn't really filled with respect for the other side like in the 1800s.

    Atrocities happen in EVERY war, and there will always be a few soldiers who go off the deep end and do things they shouldn't. I don't even know why this is an argument.

    Not just war, messed up stuff happens; it doesn't define populations.
