    This is why Hiliary spoke out for our military. Anyone that defends pissing on the Generals missions, billions in tax payer revenues, dead bodies is really is clueless imo ... not only did those marines on tax payer revenue disobey and disrespect that General Petreaus and and McChrystal took as a very serious mission to win the hearts and minds for strategic reasons ... spending billions of American dollars ... these idiots in a few split seconds disobey orders and the mission with dangerous actions.

    They endanger our troops, pissed away the billions spent of our money, disobey the orders to win over the counter insurgency ... and create more distrust and help us to lose ground.

    It reinforces terrorists and helps recruit terrorists.

    It is wrong ... if the men lying dead were enemies and had to be killed in defense that is one issue ... to goad and take the lower ground we claim to be fighting against is immoral and illogical and a dangerous game.

    Would you tell that to the mother of a dead U.S. soldier or Marine?

    I do not consider their conduct atrocious.

    1. Extremely evil or cruel; monstrous: an atrocious crime.

    Stop spewing.
    Stop insulting me.

    Look, people, all the ridiculous, desperate rationalizations only make you look even more pathetic. Peeing on the dead is wrong. Period. It's dishonorable. We're Americans and we're supposed to be the good guys. Evil acts don't excuse our evil acts. Basic adult morality. Just say so and move on.
    And stop insulting everyone who disagrees with you.

    Meh, I have family members/friends who 'saw war' and in past discussions about similar situations, some agreed with your side and some agreed with the other. The argument "you just don't understand" doesn't hold much water because it's rarely the case that those who do 'understand' have the exact same opinion.

    No sir. I did not serve in the military.

    My goal in all of this is a pretty simple one:

    1- have no wars
    2- if we do have them, its the last possible resort that is absolutely necessary - WW2 for example
    3- fight like hell and do what you have to do to win as fast as possible and bring as many of our own home safe and sound as is possible
    4- conduct yourselves honorably and according to the rules you adopt for yourself

    thats about it Rev.

    One other thing....... my heart does go out to these kids --- and being 62 years of age - that is what they are to me. I take my hat off to them and salute them for serving their country. That is more than I ever did. But they did break our own rules and now have put the safety and lives of other Americans in harms way as a result of their youthful indiscretion. And they will pay a price for it. I hope it is a price they can pay and move on to better things in their lives.

    On a very personal note: I remember when I was 16 years old and had my first car I did something really stupid that could have ruined my life. At somebodys house, in a party type situation, I was pulling away from the front of the house when another kid spread eagled himself upon the hood of my 56 Chevy. I revved the engine, slipped it into drive and shot the car forward a few feet and then slammed on the brakes. He flew off like a leaf in a stiff October wind. He got some scrapes from the cement but nothing was broken and very little harm was done. Every once in a while I think about that. What if that young man had smashed his skull and died? My life would have been very very different.

    Lets investigate this properly. Lets handle it properly according to our own rules. And lets hope these young Americans can serve their sentence and move on with their lives as best as possible.

    Their first mistake was trying to win this war through diplomacy...


    I dont condone what these soldiers are ACUSED of, but i have not been through the horrors of war either. If doing something like this makes it easier for these hero's to do their jobs and release their rage, then i say so be it. We are all sitting back in our comfortable chairs, judging from a position of superiority, based on emotions and experiences that most of us have never, and will never experience. Under normal circumstances, what they did is taboo, but perhaps in their situation, some of us would do the same. Maybe this is their way of saying, "this is what you get for killing my friend, or my brother in arms". Its not fair for us to act like we are morally superior when we cant understand things from their perspective.

    Number 4 contradicts number 3. Or at least holds the potential for contradiction.
