    US Marines grilled over abuse video

    "14 Jan 2012 US investigators have identified the four Marines seen urinating on Afghan corpses in an inflammatory video and expect to bring charges against them soon, a senior military official told FOX News Channel today. The online video showed the US troops urinating on three bloodied corpses, and one of the men, apparently aware he was being filmed, saying: "Have a great day, buddy," referring to one of the dead.

    All four are from a sniper unit in the 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines based at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, the official said, noting that the two who were questioned by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service are on active duty."

    The sad thing is that they probably WILL get booted. Not because the punishment fits the crime, but because the government has an irrational need to appease everyone. Same reason politicians get fired for having affairs, and its same reason Don Imus got fired for calling some people Nappy Headed hoes. Was that appropriate? Of course not. But it offended people so he got the boot. Never mind the fact that liberals have radio shows that are FAR more graphic and inappropriate than that.

    I respond as a peer and I don’t take the term lightly. I don’t look down on you and that’s no virtue of my own; if I could, I would. Anyway, in that spirit…

    I’ve read the relevant IAEA reports, paying particular attention to the final report. If you would like to use IAEA reports in debate regarding Iraq, there are two angles. We’ll look at the weaker first: Iraq had allowed (off and on some years) some kind of inspections for over a decade. This argument doesn’t hold much water, but it exists. The stronger point within IAEA anti-war debate is that Saddam had recently increased (procedural) compliance within the last month. The inspectors felt that obstacles to inspection had recently been removed. These obstacles involved transportation, unannounced inspections, access to facilities and access to personnel among other problems with compliance. I’d counter that this represents a second in time regarding years of dodging compliance and really, after 17 UNSC C7s, it did not represent a significant development or change of circumstance because…

    ~”We don’t know, but compliance has improved in the past months”

    That is what the report disclosed. The report did not conclude that the inspectors “knew” there were no WMDs. I don’t know where you acquired this fabrication or why you cling to it so tenaciously (I’ve corrected you before), but it’s a falsehood. See the ~quote above; that’s the final report. Stop it. Make the argument I made above, or read the reports again and come up with a new angle; however, “they knew” is flat-out crap (first because they were not only looking for nukes and second because compliance was not complete nor had it been - it was getting better) and the report is very clear on this.

    Bush never claimed they had nukes; merely that he would pursue them given the opportunity, given his record of compliance.

    Hint: Obama doesn't work for you because he was elected. He works for you because he is employed by a public institution. The military is a public institution. Therefore, they work for the public, just like teachers who 'volunteer' work for the public.

    Uh...what? Apdst claims that he can have valid criticisms Obama (even though he's never been president) because Obama works for him. However, he claims that non-military people can't have valid criticisms of the Marines in this story because we've never been in the military - however, the military also works for us. That's not semantics. That's called crushing an argument.

    The old saying, "....until you've walked a mile in my mocassins," is more true than not. Anyone is entitled to an opinion on the conduct of these men, of course. As to their motivations, mindset and why they did it, these are best left to those who've walked the walk, in my opinion. To those who say, "I don't care why they did it," I would point out that our legal system does.
