    And as we all know there are bad apples in every bunch. As a whole, our military IS very professional, mature, and very capable of handling serving with openly gay soldiers. Just like our military, as a whole, can refrain from pissing on dead bodies.

    But, it's ok to disembowl them with lethal anti-personel weapons? These Marines are scout snipers. They're have one mission and one mission only and that is to kill the enemy, with one shot, center mass. Not wound, scare, intimidate, but kill. Can you relate to that? Weren't you a cook, or something in the service?

    Which makes me wonder why pissing on the blown apart bodies is such big deal.

    You'll have to show me where their mission is to piss on the dead bodies after they kill them. As far as saying I was a cook, that's laughable and clearly you don't know me one iota.

    Allow me to refresh your memory of the infantry's mission. They probably didn't teach it at Fort Dix.

    The mission of the infantry is to close with the enemy by means of fire and maneuver to defeat or capture him, or to repel his assault by fire, close combat, and counterattack.
    If pissing on a few stiffs can be a sub-task of that overall mission, then I'm not having a problem with it. I'm sure you're very aware that it's important to destroy enemy morale. Yes?

    I'm sorry, but many of the people who were against the repeal of DADT are from the same exact crowd.

    Pissing is no where in that mission. Defending pissing on bodies is rather weak.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    And nowhere in that mission is to PISS on dead bodies. Even the Marine Corps Commandant denounces this act. Sorry, but in this case you are DEAD WRONG. You have an OPINION that it is ok, but that's all. The FACTS say differently.

    Thoughts?
    Comments?
    Response?
    My Company's Executive Officer posted this as his Facebook Status a few hours ago. Nearly everyone in my unit has "liked" it already, with numberus comments of support for the Congressman.

    *****
    Congressman (Lt. Col. Ret.) Allen West, on the Marines urinating on dead Taliban: “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.”

    An article 15 is what I have said these Marines should receive. That's all. They shouldn't be kicked out, however, there should be some sort of punishment. Any article 15 punishment under the descretion of the Marine Corp would be ok by me.

    I will stand by that these Marines should not be kicked out. They made an error in judgment and as such an article 15 hearing would be good enough.

    And we all know. Pissing on bodies means bombing civilians... fair and square. Look, maybe developing world fundies (and even developed) cannot manage to keep perspective but I think we can. Let's not lower ourselves to their level by advocating murder as a response to immature nonsense.
