Don't Pee On The Taliban Boys

There is a video circulating that apparently shows some members of the Corps urinating on some vantquished Taliban "soldiers." What a bunch of dumbasses. Of course these things happen all the time in war and peeing on some corpses is pretty tame compared to what goes on when an enemy of many a Mohammadan force is captured, but still......Not a smart move.

All professional military forces have some regulations in force about desecration of the dead. Our troops should know better than this. Most do.

If you are going to pee on the Taliban probably ought to make sure you are not being filmed.

This is really a minor episode as such things go, but it will become a political issue and some young Marines are going to wish they had just gone to trade school before all is said and done. It will be blown out of proportion enough to  make the "laughing at some Iraqi' cock" incident of a while back look like nothing. I guarantee that.

Pretty much in agreement with all of that.

It will be totally blow out of proportion I am sure.
