Rep. Allen West (R-FL), a former Army lieutenant colonel, sent The Weekly Standard an email commenting on a recent video depicting what appears to be four U.S. Marines urinating on the corpses of Taliban terrorists. The email reads as follows [emphases added]:
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.

It is as it should be, all others need to run before they get pissed upon.
I actually believe this is really creating fear upon the enemy.
And that too is as it should be.
WOW!!! A REAL MAN!!!!!!!!
Thank you Rep. West!
An opponent merits exactly as much respect and consideration as they grant us. Radical Islam has repeatedly shown they have absolutely zero respect not only for us, but for the very laws and religious tenets they claim to hold dear. Therefore according them zero respect is justified in my book.
I would happily purchase the libation of their choice for our soldiers to pour on the enemy dead - suitably strained through their kidneys...
There is an app for your smartphone for locating the direction of Mecca, very hand when either building the bathroom in your house, docking your boat or even your motorhome.
matter of fact the next time I fly i will see if I can time the direction just right as the plane is heading when I need to use the restroom. Gotta love those portable GPS units and these smartphones.
Patton would have joined them.
I wonder if this event occurred shortly after the Blackwater atrocity, or at an unrelated time. Of course Taliban types have committed plenty of atrocities of their own like the Taliban husband who cut off his teenage wife’s nose because she was disobedient.
And if you are a Taliban, keep running your your mouth ... just in case of a sudden shower...you bastards.

Add some pig blood to the mix.
Right on! The scum.
Amen. One of the most ridiculous and nonsensical "scandals" in recent memory. Hypocrisy abounds, and apparently pissing on dead bodies is now infinitely worse than killing people in the first place - even when we agree that they deserve it and that it's what war is all about.
Certainly my sentiments. remember the Delta Force guys’ dead bodies dragged naked through the streets of Mogadishu? Was leon Panetta “outraged” about that?
Thank God someone with a podium stood up and spoke the truth. Kudos Lt.Col. West!
As I said on a prior thread RE: the Taliban and the ‘armchair quarterbacks here...
Everything he (terrorists) represents is evil. Everything he fights, oppresses and kills for is evil. You accept evil or deny it.
If a demon from the pit of hell rose up and was urinated on by a US Marine, I would fail to see the difference. Nor would I be disappointed.
The politicians and media sitting securely in the comfort and safety of their cocoons need to get a grip.
Levin went on a full out rant tonight that needs to be replayed to these people.
only for their lack of discretion in filming it and making it public or allowing it to go public.

Col West has it right on.
Funny, I didn’t hear it on ANY newscast or political venue.
As to punishment, a little restriction and a blanket party for the one that ‘published’ it.
I love it when these clowns who have never even been in the boy scouts jump up and down with ‘righteous indignation’ when warriors and combatants ‘have a moment’.
This incident just gives a new meaning to ‘relieving oneself’ -
Hell, we used to light fartz and although I at 18 more than likely would have thought it a good idea to take a whiz.(At the time).
Funny though, those wall street clowns can deficate in public, throw $hit bombs at cops and they are lauded as ‘heroes’.
The bad thing here is that we do expect ‘more’ out of the USMC and it definitely is conduct unbecoming, with the greatest sin being they got caught.
Yes sir; Next time it will be hog fat.
dip-shit with the greatest sin being they got caught.
He’s the man. Hard to believe a lot more aren’t saying the exact damn thing. No standard for our enemies and perfection demanded from us.
