    Karzai slams US desecration of bodies

    "It has stirred up already strong anti-US sentiment in Afghanistan after more than a decade of war that has seen other cases of abuse.

    Residents in Afghanistan's southern city of Kandahar as well as in the capital Kabul staged rallies on Thursday to slam the desecration of the corpses, saying the US marines committed crimes.

    The demonstrators said, “Since they've committed such a crime, we don't want them anymore on our soil, we don't like foreign soldiers to be on our soil and they have to leave.”

    On January 7, Afghan officials stated that inmates in the US-run Bagram prison in Afghanistan's eastern province of Parwan have faced abuses including torture, beatings and other mistreatment.

    Chairman of Afghanistan's Constitutional Oversight Commission said that prisoners in what is sometimes called the “Afghan Guantanamo” complained of being held in prison long after they were acquitted or their prison term had finished.

    The video also comes to light as Afghan leaders ratchet up pressure on the United States to hand over security and law enforcement duties more quickly to the country's forces.

    The US-led invasion of Afghanistan took place in 2001 under the pretext of combating terrorism, toppling the Taliban regime and establishing security in the country.

    However, insecurity continues to rise across Afghanistan despite the presence of foreign forces in the country."

    You conservative people are funny.
    How many 'liberals' (since for some reason you want to tard it up with the political thing though Bubba and several others here are very much liberal and dont feel the way you do) play Battlefield, Modern Warfare, and drool over the prospect of killing people...on video games. Who was it here that said they went so far as to 'Tea bag' an enemy they killed?

    Yeah...good thing those types dont take their bloodlust to the actual battlefield, huh?

    It would appear that, if they can identify these men, they're toast. They will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Catawba's post should remind us all of unintended consequences...although if it means our guys come home tomorrow, then we owe these guys a thank-you along with their probable prison sentences. It's really a shame...but the news media all over the world has now picked up "it violates the Geneva Convention against desecrating dead bodies" and calling it war crimes. Our military is probably in an untenable position here.

    I wonder, though. Are soldiers impressed with the seriousness of such offenses? That they will go to prison? Be prosecuted vigorously? Or is it glossed over as they focus on teaching our guys to fight so they can maybe stay alive?

    I feel sorry for those soldiers. I really do.

    It's also occurred to me that the soldier who took the video is probably not the one who posted it up. He'd have to be a complete fool. But he undoubtedly was foolish enough to email it to some "friends."

    I should care what their opinions are....why?

    Maybe this will piss them off and they will ask us to leave their pos country. That then, would be a good outcome to this incident.
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    look, they acted stupidly. not only did they desecrate the corpses, they FILMED it. that's hardly a spur of the moment stress reliever, is it? that said, they shouldn't receive prison sentences for this. but they embarrassed themselves, their country and their fellow marines by their actions.

    I wish people would get this more. Oftentimes, when a person uses the word "understanding" when referring to anyone but American soldiers, all hell breaks loose.

    Why are we there, if we don't care what Afghans think? They've already said they would side with Pakistan in a fight with the US, how many hints do you need???
