    I've already defended them. I'm not doing it again for you. BTW, in a socialist gov't there is a 1% and a 99%. Here, we're all Americans who are free to cast our lot where ever we want. Just because you choose to percentalize (is that a word) yourself doesn't mean we all have to do it.

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

    Okay, the act was deplorable. It will cause immeasurable damage in diplomatic circles. It could be used as a catalyst propaganda piece that spawns the next round of Muslim suicidal manics.

    I join the majority of right-minded people denouncing such a dispicable display. These marine's should, and shall, get their due. Not only did they piss on some dead Taliban dude, they pissed on the shiny spotless shield representing the United States Marines. Our nation's finest. I can guarantee you the USMC knows how to handle these guys.

    But when justice doles out their due, I do hope that the powers that be keeps in mind the following:

    1. Where was all this Islamic outrage when our soldiers were drug through the streets of Mogadishu?
    2. What happened to the people who hung the burning American corpses from the bridge trusses? To what "Full Extent of the Law" were the people dancing under their dead bodies subjected to? What figure of state came, hat in hand, to apologize to all parties concerned, for those actions?

    I could go on. You get my drift.

    We send our youngest of men (and women) to a very dark place, with very dark people, to do a very dark job. They, themselves, can go to very dark places just to keep their head in to the game. Heck, there are probably a zillion pictures and videos just like that one out there hidden in some foot lockers.

    It's The Suck. I can understand the warped psyche of putting ones self into a frame of mind that NOTHING could be worse than life in The Suck. Totally not thinking about any ramifications, or anything else, for that matter, beyond The Suck. Did I hear they were snipers? If so, dehumanizing the enemy probably is done as a defense mechanism or a mind ploy to help them cope with the psychological woes that go with the job.

    I am not, in no way, defending their actions. I am simply stating that I HOPE whoever hands them down their spankings keeps the things I mentioned, in mind.

    I do. You'd rather I condemn them based on a YouTube video. Well - like I said you're not equipped to understand, which is why you have all the faux outrage.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it.

    I didn't know you held dead terrorists in such a high regard Catawba. Good to know.

    Exactly, it further breaks down the distinction between us and terrorists.

    Don't. You only make things worse.

    Just say it was wrong, and move on.

    The key word there is "dead".
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    That was good! Thanks for being both serious and bringing a little levity to this conversation. Maybe it's because I served that this doesn't get under my skin as much as those who have NO CLUE (*ahem*) but the "one bladder for my country" was very good!
