    Because once you desecrate the dead, you have desecrated the dead. The intent is still for all practical purposes the same(assuming that desecration is he goal).

    I can understand the intense feelings of rage and hatred for these people who are scum. However, the army does have an honor code.

    It would be similar if I hunted down murderer who escaped prison and killed him. Though there is no empathy for the murder, what I did was wrong[I think that analogy works, but if it doesn't please let me know where].

    Nice effort at diversion. No human being would not be disgusted by such a thing. Nor does it mean that others things don't disgust either.

To call this breach of conduct atrocious is just beyond the pale, in my opinion.
    It is poor behavior, and I think for many those words apply. More over, it says a lot of things about the people who do such things, a lot about maturity as well.

    I can't imagine what our soldiers see everyday, or how they feel. I'm sure given how nasty this war has been that at the moment they did it, they were thinking it was no big deal. BUT it's just not a smart move. Last thing they need is too add more fuel to the fire, and put themselves in more danger.

    and of course I'm not justifying their behavior. I think it was wrong, but I'm not going to condemn them either.

    I agree. It isn't smart. And more than a little childish.

    I suspect they will face discipline, and while not jail worthy, it is certainly something to call them on and hold them accountable for their actions. War is nasty business, but our humanity shoudl not be lost easily and without an effort to keep it.

    Do you think these otherwise good soldiers should be kicked out of the military? I certainly don't. How many of you are in their boots?

    No. But they cannot be allowed to think what they did was OK. They should know they put a stain on otherwise honorable work, and on those who served with them. It hurt not just them, but others who serve with more restraint and maturity.

    Absolutely they are gone. You do not, ever, not ever, make bad publicity for your command/branch/country. You will get hung out to dry. Every single time. When we learned the 10 commandments, this was like number 2.
