The Obamafied US military is investigating an online video purportedly showing Marines urinating on the corpses of Taliban fighters in Afghanistan, a spokesman said Wednesday, calling the behaviour “disgusting”.
The video shows what appears to be four servicemen, dressed in US military uniform, relieving themselves onto three bloodied bodies on the ground, apparently aware that they are being filmed. “Have a great day, buddy,” one of them says. The Pentagon has not yet verified the video, but spokesman John Kirby told AFP: “Regardless of the circumstances or who is in the video, this is… egregious, disgusting behaviour, unacceptable for anyone in uniform.” ”It turned my stomach,” he added of the video, which was posted on the Live Leak website.
Right. Reality check. War is NOT played out by the Queensberry rules. It is kill or be killed. It involves high emotions, high aggression. Sure it is unbecoming to urinate on the corpse of the enemy but then again in the aftermath of a fire fight emotions run high and I put NO blame on the soldiers. It is IMPOSSIBLE to “desecrate” the Taliban since they have already desecrated themselves through their innate savagery. What do some people think war actually is? It’s not about shaking hands and being gentlemanly.
Taliban scum deserve all that they get and I trust that the soldiers concerned are congratulated for killing the enemy.
