    I saw the unedited video. They do piss on them. If you would like, I could send you a link to an unedited version. Just send me a PM.

    Yes, I'm pro-urination but I don't support urination.

    Effective as an action - did you not understand the act?

    So answer the question... what value "in the general sense of the word" is it exactly?

    Not sure how your interest is involved here... how does it endanger our troops more?

    So you're saying it DOESN'T recruit more terrorists?

    Makes it easier how? If it motivates someone who was on the fence, and now decides that this is the last straw, "I'm going to become a terrorist". Doesn't that then put that person in the way of American soldiers who then identify them as terrorists, and target them? Isn't that how we identify terrorists?

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

    Would anyone be upset if that vid was of the Taliban pissing on dead marines? Would you (general you) "understand" the whys and wherefores but still think the Taliban should punish the men that did it? Or claim it's no worse than what they've done before?

    Just curious.

    If that were the case I'd try to cut in line to be the first to shoot those mofos.

    And I imagine that's probably what our enemies think as well.

    Exactly and that's been my position all along. The whining public at home with their knickers in a twist puts pressure on Washington and then every veteran knows, "excreta rolls downhill." Three or four good Marines are going to be in a world of hurt and get a lot more punishment than they deserve because the folks back home want to believe in John Wayne and want to believe that the Marines are basically like Boy Scouts with guns. Whatever is handled will be directed from Washington, because to paraphrase Jack Nickelson "civilians can't handle the truth". As such civilians rarely get the truth. This whole thing is perfect example.

    The peeing incident is out of context. Making a video was dumb, making good Marines the target of an "investigation" and ****ing over American warriors by causing Washington to be involved is even dumber.

    Why wouldn't people be upset?

    I wouldn't expect anything from the Taliban. If anything, I'd think that'd be among the milder things they're capable of.

    The entire point of pissing on the Taliban was to show the disrespect for them.

    I've told this story more than once, others may have heard it. I once had a Marine recruiter say to me (a rough paraphrasing): "To civilians, the Marine Corps is like the beef patty in a Big Mac. Everyone loves to eat the Big Mac, nobody wants to see the cow slaughtered. Our job is thankless and your contributions for the most part will go unappreciated."

    There is one way to rectify this, in my opinion: national service.

    I ask out if genuine curiosity, SB. Why would that make you want to shoot them, yet when acts of terrorism occur, you're more interested in "understanding" it?
