Urination Video Appalls The U.S. Military!

Categories: Advice

msl_jul06_ent_lemonade_xl.jpg

A supposed video of marines urinating on the corpses of Taliban fighters in Afghanistan has pushed all the copper buttons of the military -- an organization that is conducted in the height of taste, as you know -- and they have let the world know that they are downright appalled.

They have called this action deplorable, reprehensible, pathetic, and deeply sad.

And in truth it is disrespectful and rather tacky, turning the battlefield into that old fetish den the Mine Shaft.

But isn't it a tiny bit fascinating that the military's attitude seems to be:

"We sent you there to maim, torture, and kill people.

"And then you sick fucks go and pee on their bodies?

"How very dare you!"

I admit to my ignorance of Afghanistani politics, but didn't W start this war in order to get Bin Laden, only to say later that her really didn't think about him that much, which I thought was a slap in the face to those who lost loved ones on that fateful day.

After several years in Afghanistan the commanding general annouced that al Qaeda was no longer in Afghanistan. Now, you might think Bush would have given the order to pull our troops out of Afghanistan....Mission accomplished...so to speak. But no, the war profiteers who were providing fuel for our vehicles at the ungodly price of $400 per gallon ( think of spending $16,000 everytime the military gases up an army personell carrier and you start to get a grip on how much money is being squandered) and who fund political campaigns back in the good ol' USA invented a new enemy...the Taliban (Who?) would replace al Qaeda, and we were off to the races again.

Right. Black people have never committed a crime or an offense. Your reverse racism is deeply disturbing.

You said it all, Mikey.  The situation of doing war is so hideous, it is hard to believe anyone can do it.  But then the peeing on the bodies is awful too.  I'm sorry anyone is in such hell.

The military should realize that this is more a comment on the way being in the armed forces can dehumanize you. They strip you of your dignity and humanity, then they wonder why you act like a barbarian!

It's been done before, all throughout history, in fact.  I frankly don't give a rip, and neither did the dead guys.  We can't expect soldiers to kill dispassionately.  So the emotions are going to boil over from time to time.  Forget it.

the subject was the united states army. the man who raped the 14 y.o girl and then shot the family in cold blood in afghanistan was white. the photographs of the soldiers disrespecting the prisoners in abu graib were white including a white female. none of those soldiers doing such acts were african-american. we are speaking about soldiers in the american army.the videos of american soldiers abusing animals on youtube--the one where the puppy being thrown like a football.

One of the Marines in the video looks pretty dark skinned to me. Are you stupid, trolling or both?
