    Well perchance the worst thing is the killings and not the peeing. I suppose there should be disciplinary procedures; you cannot have soldiers not obeying the rules and not acting in accordance to the military. Still, peeing on dead bodies is probably the least of the concerns here.

You discover people you know die because rules were followed. The only standard of conduct you know is one that exists for civilians. You do whatever you can to survive and protect your mates (better term than friends). It's you and them against the world. In war, "God, mom and apple pie" is bull****. It's down to less than you and 100 people, "standard of conduct" left your thinking by the second week you were in-country.
    Like I said earlier, I'm not arguing that their actions aren't understandable. I know some vets think non-military people are idiots who believe that war is what it looks like in the movies. I'm not one of those people, so you can save the preaching and sarcasm for them as my argument is not based on that premise.

    Their actions are understandable as I said, but that doesn't mean that I'm going to support them, refrain from speaking about them negatively or stop believing that those who are, in fact, representing an entire country should have a code of conduct. In fact, I'm willing to stand by my argument, in part, so strongly because I know that it's supported by vets that I know personally - people who have been there.

    Somehow, a crap ton of vets have made it without pissing on corpses, so clearly I'm not arguing for too much.

    And we should give a damn what CAIR says? **** em and feed em fish heads. In past wars our troops made ear necklaces, scalped the enemy, hung the corpse of a korean thief from the front gate of a compound to discourage thievery. If our Marines are only pissing on the corpses of the enemy to blow off steam I don't see a problem at all.

    I honestly don't know what the hell you mean by that? I'm also not interested in playing semantics on this particular thread. Get to it or move on.

    U.S. soldiers caught with their pants down again, except this time literally. Always a class act.

    It's sad that it takes a few bad apples to discredit the rest. I hope these marines are disciplined, and the fact that it was videotaped shows just how stupid they are.

    I hope these idiots are happy. I don't care whether they or you think the Taliban "deserved it" or not, these soldiers' immature actions have jeopardized the safety of Americans all across the globe. I have no doubt the stress of US military duty in the middle east f***s with soldiers' judgment, so to that extent I am trying to temper my anger at the irresponsibility here. But they POSTED the video. That goes beyond a momentary lapse of judgment. The US needs to make a strong example out of these soldiers, IMO.

    They have not been identified. May never be identified. And as for these actions jeopardizing the safety of Americans across the globe all I can say to that is FTW. When I was a soldier we used to say FTW. in other words be damned what the rest of the world thinks.

    Poor judgment, yes. Against "the rules?" I guess so. But I'm having a hard time getting all worked up over it. A dead body is a dead body. This isn't atrocious behavior; far from it. We try to sanitize war by having stupid rules of engagement...as if there really are any. I have sympathy for these guys; undoubtedly their careers are over at the very least. But I have complete distain for the idiot who posted that video on YouTube. I hope he pays the very same price.
