    Sure... the Taliban have done much worse already Them pissing an a dead Marine would be a few steps up. If you do piss on a dead person at a funeral, make sure someone's recording it until they scrape you up off the ground. They may not be as understanding as I am.

    The only cause I'd want is more dead terrorists.

    The act was disrespectful on purpose. It doesn't represent the USA. The Marines may say it represents them badly but that's up to them, it represents the Marine who pissed on the dead Taliban guy, but it doesn't represent the USA at all. So everything you do represents the USA? The terrorist use whatever they can to recruit - if it wasn't this it would be something else - that's weak sauce.

    You need to ask those service members, first if they were in combat and then describe what occurred and tell me if they're still so outraged as you are. What you don't seem to realize is there are at least a few service people here on DP who have provided a little different insight than your own. Again, we're not condoning. At risk of being flippant about this --- did you ever hear the Chris Rock standup where he talks about O.J. and he says, "I'm not saying he should have killed her.... but I understand". Well I'm the same way about this. Not too hard to understand.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Like I say, it's not that big of a deal to waste someone, but OMG! Don't piss on'em!
    That rationale of "don't piss on 'em" is a bit strange....

    I get the part about respecting a corpse. I mean, that's the right thing to do.

    But, to be clear, I do not respect the Taliban, dead or alive.

    Even though I may never actually urinate on one, I do have a "piss on 'em" attitude.

    But this was some bad ju-ju. No doubt.

    pee party

    Latest big scandal is soldiers pissing on dead Taliban, since when has war become so PC? These guys have seen their buddys killed and horribly wounded by Taliban and a little celebrating when they kill some of them is no big deal indeed most wars see far worse. Hillary is all shook up over this and said they will be held accountable which is infuriating. Why is it OK to shoot, bomb, stab, incinerate or whatever it takes to kill the enemy but then you have to be respectful of their corpse. Stand by her cheating man Hillary has alot of nerve saying squat to these brave soldiers and should shut her ****** mouth! END RANT

    Because they were under fire maybe from these people maybe not, does that give them the right to piss on them?

    Sure...
    I would beg to differ...
    You seriously think that's ok?
    the Taliban have done much worse already
    Ok.

    Them pissing an a dead Marine would be a few steps up.
    But marines pissing on a dead militant is totally different?

    If you do piss on a dead person at a funeral, make sure someone's recording it until they scrape you up off the ground. They may not be as understanding as I am.
    Ehhh i would rather not. But sense pissing on people ok is cool maybe you can try and i will videotape?


    The only cause I'd want is more dead terrorists.
    But this action i gurantee wont help out so much..

    I thought are women and men in the amred forces represent the USA?

    I actually chuckled at this

    It's a step up from the Taliban's past actions.

    You didn't answer my question. Does everything you do represent the USA? You have your answer...

    Do you see anything wrong with your answer? The Marine took the guys life - justifiably, but you're more concerned about his urination.... I have to echo others who have said it many times.... this is not that big of a deal.
