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

    Urinating on someone is so offensive that I could never do it to anyone dead or alive, even those who defend the indefensible. I would not pee on them. I can safely say that even if they were on fire, I personally would not pee on them.

    Sorry, Mattillac. I'm pretty protective of the guys and gals who put their lives on the line for our country. Don't cry.

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

    "All four Marines featured in the video have been identified and interviewed by investigators with the NCIS, the service said in a statement today. Officials are "still tracking down" whoever created and uploaded the video, the NCIS said.

    The results of both the NCIS and the USMC investigations will be presented to Marine Lt. Gen. Thomas Waldhauser who will determine further action, the USMC said in a statement.

    If authentic, the video portrays potential violations of both the first Geneva Convention, which calls for the dead to be "honorably interred" and graves to be "respected," as well as the U.S. Uniform Code of Military Justice for allegedly bringing "discredit upon the armed forces."

    Afghan President Hamid Karzai called the incident "inhuman."

    "The Government of Afghanistan is deeply disturbed by a video that shows American soldiers desecrating dead bodies of three Afghans," Karzai said in a statement Wednesday, referring to the Marines. "This act by American soldiers is simply inhuman and condemnable in the strongest possible terms."

    Two of the Marines are non-commissioned officers, which makes this even worse.

    Um...Obama was elected. He was elected to represent the American people.

    This is the infantry's mission:

    "The Infantry closes with the enemy by means of fire and maneuver in order to destroy or capture him or to repel his assault by fire, close combat, and counterattack."

    I'm just not seeing anything in there that is remotely close to what the handwringers are claiming that their job is.

That's not semantics. That's called crushing an argument.
    I never said you can't. I've only said that your criticisms are uninformed.

    In the scope of war I could care less except for the image that it gives the United States... We are fighting scum that decapitate people and we get in a hissy fit about peeing on some dead bodies.

    I don't expect all our soldiers to be brilliant... but Scout Snipers video taping themselves? Seriously... how stupid is that?

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

    What they did was wrong. Our government agrees it was wrong. Our government heads agree it was wrong. Most people think it was wrong. Those who did it will be punished in some form or another. Those men do not represent the USA or the military of the USA.

    So with that said, the president of Afghanistan can shut his pie hole and quit waving his fists. WE KNOW ALREADY. It was WRONG. It's being taken care of! So STFU and pry the log out of your eye while whining about the stick in ours, ok? SHEESH.
    Oh, and while you are stomping your feet, Mr. Afghan Prez, do try to keep YOUR denizens under control the next time they decide to behead someone and show it on tv, m'kay?

    Arrrrgggg

    That's weird because you responded to me when I made this comment:

    in response to Captain America who claimed that those not in the military should not "shoot off at their pie hole" (aka criticize the military) when it comes to military concerns. You responded that the president is different because he works for you meaning that you did not object to the topic of conversation - that non-military people can't criticize the military.

    In either case, you're still wrong about the military and the President being different in regards to working for the public. Both are paid by the public. Both work for it.
