    After the attacks of September 11, 2001 the Taliban were overthrown by Operation Enduring Freedom. Later it regrouped as an insurgency movement to fight the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (established in late 2001) and the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF).[28] They use terrorism as a specific tactic to further their ideological and political goals.[29] According to the United Nations, the Taliban and their allies were responsible for 75% of civilian casualties in 2010 and 80% in 2011.[30][31][32] Today the Taliban operate in Afghanistan and northwest Pakistan. It is believed one of their current major headquarters is near Quetta in Pakistan.[33][34]

    I don't see any evidence of urination. . . though it blurs "the area of activity" the body on teh ground is still visible and does not appear to be wet at all. No puddling on the ground - no visible urine stream. I see no evidence of anything - perhaps they have access to a better quality video or something?

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    That's not a conflict. Pro-choice is not same thing as supporting abortion.

    Fr it or against it, it was effective, as I'm sure you'll agree.
    Effective at what. It's not that hard to piss.

    What value is it exactly?
    I'm not talking about "a" value. I'm talking about value in the general sense of the word.

    First, I'm surprised you think the Taliban are terrorists.... and if that's the case, I personally would want to enrage terrorists more such that those terrorists are identified and killed, wherever they may be.
    Wanting to enrage terrorists is a purely emotional reaction that could possibly endanger soldiers and all Americans even more. I'm not interested in that.

    I see the value of pissing on terrorists and believe such a recruitment tool is a GOOD thing as more terrorists are identified and removed from the available gene pool on this planet.
    Such videos don't make it easier for us to identify terrorists. It just makes it easier for some people to become terrorists.

    I do believe however, as I've repeated a couple of times, that the behavior of these Marines is out of line with their Core Values. As someone who highly respects the military and is considering joining, it's a bit like finding out one of your sports idols is kind of a douchebag.
    Yes, SB, they're human (just as those Taliban members you're intent on understanding). Probably a good thing to know before you join.

    They are human. And understanding is not the same thing as approving or sympathizing.

    This is a good point. I remember when Fort Hood was shot up, we were told not to rush to judgment, oh but this, well the quicker the condemnation the better, I guess.

    Who are you referring to? The Taliban or the Marines?

    US Marines ALLEGEDLY urinate on dead Taliban
    Casey Anthony ALLEGEDLY kills her own daughter

    I suppose it's human nature to rush to judgment anyway.
