    These Marines nave been identified. Their lives will forever be marred by this thoughtless act not to mention their families. What shortsightedness.

    Well, when we get avatar robots so that infantrymen no longer have to go into combat, let me know and we can get to work on stopping it from becoming normal behavior. Until then, our ground combat veterans will be largely young men who themselves risk death or dismemberment, and will react as human beings have to those stresses since the dawn of time.

    I don't care if I'm in charge of a PLT of Marines or Soldiers, that kind of behavior won't have a place here. Victory should be celebrated but some way different, there is too much risk, all of it unnecessary, for celebrating like this.
    and all soldiers love and respect their chain of command, and are sure that their leadership has their best interests at heart. Perhaps they could celebrate with a checkers tournament? cmon man.

    We had a suicide attack once by three guys chucking grenades and wearing vests (well, I say 'we', but I was part of the QRF), the first two guys were ventilated by everyone turning and firing en masse (one wounded an IP), at which point the third guy decided that he was maybe less dedicated to The Jihad than he had thought he was, and turned to run. He hopped a wall, accidentally triggering his own vest, and body parts showered back over. It was pretty hilarious. One of the parts that came back was an arm from the elbow down - which guys picked up and shook hands with, challenged each other to duels, etc. Their Lt let them for a while until it was time to put a lid on it - which was the right call. If you don't let guys blow off steam after a fight, you will find that they bottle and can explode in manners much worse than pissing on dead people.

    It would also be my professional judgment that urinating on a body is a sign something may have gone a little funny in your head
    you are a combat psychiatrist?

    and its worth someone with proper training looking into. Hell even if there's nothing wrong with them, it provides a chance to explain to them exactly what could happen and why I won't tolerate it.
    indeed. very naughty. then you can explain to them the importance of maintaining proper grooming habits and not wearing or using non-issued equipment while on a two week patrol

    I know I keep saying Soldiers and not Marines or personnel, its a force of habit. And I'm at Camp Red Cloud Korea, like my location says.
    Gotta run now, i'll google map it later

    This is so freakin ridiculous I can barely grasp it. In Nam it was common practice to take ears for trophy's and wearing a near necklace wasn't that uncommon. As for cameras it was also common to cut off the heads of a couple of dead VC, and take turns holding them by the hair in front of you for pics. It's WAR, these little celebration things are Good for moral and it really helps blow off steam. I am sick to death of sniveling little lib scum cowards sitting in their easy chairs at home judging soldiers.

    Well, it's not the snivelling little lib scum cowards who are investigating the incident and being expected to charge these Marines, it's the Department of Defense and the Marine Corps So I guess they have a problem with it too.

    Oh yeah, they are probably done in the service, and while it is sad, it is also predictable. I got briefed I dunno how many times on essentially "thou does not create bad publicity". When I was in, our biggest negative publicity item was the Tailhook scandal. Admiral Dunleavy, the senior aviator in the navy at the time, lost his job over that and for precisely that reason. We had a handful of pilots at Tailhook that year, and to say they where sweating bullets would put it mildly. One of them was Dunleavy's son, who got off clean himself despite us enlisted folks fervent wishes(guy was a dick).

    It is no longer the 60's and 70's. We lost Vietnam. It is not cowardice to judge actions. I did my time in the service and at war.

    No we didn't, but that's no surprise that you think we did.
