    So a war is only lost if it is officially notarized on paper. Got it.

    I'm sure the Gauls would love to know that the didn't actually get crushed by the Romans.

    Re: U.S. Marines Urinate On Dead Bodies In Afghanistan

    My take on this is that it is in bad taste that we have Marines, or any other service members acting in such fashion. They are there to protect the U.S.A. I can understand that stress of war will get to people over time. Its bad taste, but certainly does not go to the level of such disdain. The biggest problem I have is that there will be a huge investigation, all kinds of heads will roll, but ultimately who is responsible for the actions of the Marines is the Marines who did this. Lately it is all too common of a practice in government to make way too big of an issue with this type of incident. Those who acted with a lack of military bearing should be repremanded in accordance with the UCMJ for acting with a lack of military bearing. Nothing more, nothing less.

    What standard are you using to suggest that the United States, "lost", the Vietnam War?

    And please, don't misinterpret Clauswitz again.

    The war in Nam was lost in America not in Nam and sadly the people that lost it now run America.

    My sentiments exactly:


    Allen West on the Marines Incident: 'Shut Your Mouth, War Is Hell' | The Weekly Standard

    Allen West on the Marines Incident: 'Shut Your Mouth, War Is Hell'

    Daniel Halper

    January 13, 2012 1:37 PM



    Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.), a former Army lieutenant colonel, sends THE WEEKLY STANDARD an email commenting on the Marines' video, and has given us permission to publish it.
    “I have sat back and assessed the incident with the video of our Marines urinating on Taliban corpses. I do not recall any self-righteous indignation when our Delta snipers Shugart and Gordon had their bodies dragged through Mogadishu. Neither do I recall media outrage and condemnation of our Blackwater security contractors being killed, their bodies burned, and hung from a bridge in Fallujah.
    “All these over-emotional pundits and armchair quarterbacks need to chill. Does anyone remember the two Soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division who were beheaded and gutted in Iraq?
    “The Marines were wrong. Give them a maximum punishment under field grade level Article 15 (non-judicial punishment), place a General Officer level letter of reprimand in their personnel file, and have them in full dress uniform stand before their Battalion, each personally apologize to God, Country, and Corps videotaped and conclude by singing the full US Marine Corps Hymn without a teleprompter.
    “As for everyone else, unless you have been shot at by the Taliban, shut your mouth, war is hell.”

    How different do you think US-Vietnam relationship would be today if we had won?

    Hint: Today, Vietnam is a country ruled by the Communist Party. I'd say that's a pretty heavy indictment.
