    Re: pee party

    I'll say the basically same thing here as I did on the other thread.

    First, the behavior was unprofessional and all involved, including the platoon leader, should be appropriately disciplined. I'll add that I agree with YourStar, anyone stupid enough to be videoed... in uniform... behaving this way deserves to have a permanent reprimand in his jacket.

    Second, this is a minor incident involving dead enemies which although inappropriate, does not deserve the amount of hysterical media coverage it's getting. A lapse in judgement by marines who have been in a war environment for a long time, and understandably have some hostility toward those who have killed their fellow soldiers and tried to kill them.

    Chill out, peeps. It's not a video of marines cutting the fingers off a screaming prisoner. They peed on a corpse. They would have insulted Islam more by simply wiping their feet on them.

    Move along, nothing to see here.

    I'm not a real fan of their values either. OTOH, they feel pretty much the same way about our values, and they aren't bombing our neighborhoods.

    The Taliban is responsible for some of the most agregious atrocities ever commited. Blowing up schools full of school girls because they don't believe women should be educated. Murdering 8 small boys, gunning them down for laughing as they passed. Beating and torturing the children of Afghanis who cooperate with Americans. Mutilating torturing and beating women for appearing in public without a male relative or for what ever reason them see fit. And our Marines are animals for pissing on the corpses of these evil SOB's. Give me a break. I could go on listing intentional atrocities commited by the Taliban all night.

    I think I'm more bothered by the fact that they cut the heads off our dead soldiers... and the occasional live one... then drag their bodies naked through the streets or hang them from an overpass. I think the soldiers' families would agree with me. Don't manufacture outrage about something that adolescent males have been doing to other adolescent males since frat houses were invented.

    Obviously that is even more disgusting and unacceptable, though I think it's probably about as common as our guys pissing on their corpses. Two wrongs....

    Twice I had to scroll up to the thread title to be sure I was on the right thread. Man, when a train gets a full head of steam, when it derails, it DERAILS!

    Thanks Redress for getting it back on track.

    THAT'S what I'm talkin' about! Where's the outrage there? Not saying two wrongs make a right. Just sayin'.

    Hey now, that's uncomfortably close to a threat. Matt may have an opinion you find untenable, I don't agree with him either, but the answer is to argue with him and rationally defend your position, not make thinly veiled...ah...suggestions.

    on the list of things that bother me, this rates right below people who put bubble gum underneath public school desks.

    Their values? values? what are you talking about. Did you forget why we entered this war to begin with? You seem to think we are talking about your run of the mill pick pockets here. The Taliban have the value system of a serial killer. Sometimes I don't know why I bother with you people. btw, the WTC was in one of our neighborhoods, and the Taliban supported the animals who were responsible for that bombing. So yes, in a indirect way they did bomb our neighborhoods.


    Let me ask you something, why are you making excuses for the Taliban?
