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 what bothers me about it is, although I understand the emotion behind this action, I just think we should stay ABOVE what the Taliban represents. Peeing on dead bodies is something they would do. Not something our soldiers do. But again, I understand completely WHY they did what they did. For whatever reason. However, they represent all the marines...all the military. What they did made it look bad on all military personnel. Understandably or not.

    In other words...those who kill monsters should be careful not to become monsters themselves.

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.
    Yeah, values. Very traditional. We weren't so choosy about them when we were paying them to fight the Russians, were we?

    How long ago was it that we didn't allow women to vote, or work, or drive? How long ago was it that we enslaved another race and treated them like chattel? Get off your high horse.

    I know two wrongs don't make a right. But you cannot compare what our Marines did here to what the Taliban our responsible for. People seem to forget who the hell we are talking about. These are some evil SOB's who do not blink an eye nor shead a tear at the murderous atrocities they commit. No comparrison what so ever. Why do we not hear the media outrage when the Taliban blows up a girls school?

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
    This from people who got their panties in a wad over what happened to Gaddafi's body...

    So to recap, peeing on Taliban is OK and Hilary Clinton sucks. Ass-raping Gaddafi is not OK, and is Obama's fault.

    They do. And drag their bodies in the streets. We get outraged.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    I don't really see the incident as that big of a deal, but I wanted to point out that this particular line of reasoning is illogical and very dangerous. It also is often used in the form of "if it is ok to kill them, why isn't it ok to rape them?" It has been used, many times, to justify any atrocity that is short of killing a person- slavery, torture, etc.

    It doesn't really make sense. It relies on the assumption that somehow wars create like a "no morals zone" and that is why it is ok to kill. That isn't the case. Killing them is only ok when it serves a purpose- when the advantages to the world as a whole substantially outweigh the loss of life. That is what makes it morally acceptable to kill sometimes in war- the extraordinary situation where it is substantially outweighed by even more grave concerns. That is never the case with rape, torture, slavery, etc. They serve no purpose, so doing those things in war is no more morally acceptable than it would be to do those things in peacetime. There is no more extraordinary, overriding, necessity to do those things in war any more than there is in day to day peacetime life, so they are no better just because they are done during a war.

    Oh I see, you are going to compare the right to vote to murdering school girls because you don't think women should be educated. I am staying on my high horse. It gives an advantage, I can see my enemy and people who support them like you.
