    I would be glad to.

    We're not just going to shoot the bastards, we're going to cut out their living guts and use them to grease the treads on our tanks --General George S. Patton, Jr.
    And, before you say, "but...but...but...that's different!", just think about the reaction we would be seeing, had soldiers in Iraq, or Afghanistan greased the treads of their tanks with human guts.

    But, most understand why they would do it. You're totally missing the point.

    Would i piss on them?
    No.....

    I consider the Taliban members out in the field, who are armed and ready to take life, to be wrong. I have no empathy for their dead corpses being watered.
    Even tho it will bring more recruits to their ranks?
    Great idea!

    Good advice.
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    Ok, so being stressed is an excuse for bad behavior and doing the wrong thing?

    Drone strikes all over the world.
    Increase the number of troops.
    Secret missions in Pakistan (to get Osama)
    Continuing the use of Guantanamo and other black sites.

    Right.... He is just using these for "talking points" and he "really doesnt care"...

    Our gov't doesn't want to do the things we need to in order to win. That would result in too much bloodshed and too many burnt bridges. We need to leave there now. Screw em. Pakistans nuke can't reach us anyway and Israel has missile defense.
    So this is justification to piss on dead militants...
    Looks real good on the ol US and A.
    Maybe we should make it standard procedure to let people pee on dead militants.. See how that would work out.. We could really win the "War on terror" then...

    And yet there are countless soldiers who have experienced similar or worse and they manage to stay professional enough to avoid pissing on the corpses of the enemy. It's a topsy turvy world.

    Update:

    WASHINGTON, Jan 12 (Reuters) - The U.S. Marines have identified the unit whose forces are suspected of being behind a video appearing to show them urinating on the bodies of dead Taliban in Afghanistan, a Marine officer told Reuters on Thursday.
    The officer, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the Marines in question were believed to be from the 3rd Battallion, 2nd Marines, which is based out of Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.

    It's not an excuse, but it's one of the reasons for this kind of behavior.
