    thing is, "soldiers" have been desecrating the corpses of their fallen enemies for as long as there has been conflict.

    This thread is full of the immature, and dangerous, rationalizations for Americans doing unAmerican things. It's typical of the small-minded thinking that comes up whenever an incident like this happens. It's sad. It hurts us in so many ways.

    People of good will and those who have a sense of decency would be disgusted by such displays no matter which side performed them. The sad record of history is that there is no shortage of wrongs committed during war.

    As Americans, many of us like to believe we are a bit better than the rest, that we have higher standards than the rest, and we subscribe to a code of decency and honor that puts us on a higher moral plane than the rest. When something like this pops up, it causes those beliefs about ourselves to be questioned.

    "small minded", coming from the naivley ignorant on the subject of being in a warzone, all I can do is shrug. See ->

    Is that wrong or is it okay?

    If it's wrong, it was wrong to piss on them.

    If it's okay, then it's okay when they piss on our soldiers or burn them and hang them from bridges.

    Which is it?

    Yes, this is all true, however when something like this happens, it's important to keep perspective. Pissing on the corpses of these savages is mild compared to what they have done to others.

    As you know Oscar...our soldiers are not the soldiers of the 1400's...they are more educated, more compentent, and held to a much higher standard.

    You wouldn't understand life in a warzone.



    "“There were young knights among them who had never been present at a stricken field. Some could not look upon it and some could not speak and they held themselves apart from the others who were cutting down the prisoners at My Lord’s orders, for the prisoners were a body too numerous to be guarded by those of us who were left. Then Jean de Rye, an aged knight of Burgundy who had been sore wounded in the battle, rode up to the group of young knights and said: ‘Are ye maidens with your downcast eyes? Look well upon it. See all of it. Close your eyes to nothing. For a battle is fought to be won. And it is this that happens if you lose.”
    - Froissart’s Chronicles, 14th century

    I think its kind of convenient that there is a camera 10 feet in front of these guys doing what they are doing. Wouldnt you expect a sniper to spot something like that, and maybe wait till after the camera left before doing something that would get him drummed out of the military? This is nothing but a PR campaign. I doubt it ever happened.
