The U.S. Marine Corps today launched an official investigation after footage emerged which showed American soldiers urinating on dead bodies.
The 40-second clip shows four men in combat gear standing over the three corpses with their genitals exposed as they relieve themselves.
At one point one of the men can be heard saying: 'Have a great day, buddy' to laughter from his colleagues.

Sir, he was on fire and our canteens were bone dry.
I am not interested in any foreign outrage or criticism over this incident after Mogadishu.
Good thing they did not have video camcorders during World War II.
piss on ‘em, their dead
Had to be one of their “pals” taking the video.
Shouldn’t do it but men at war do things it’s life and death. Shouldn’t video it, either.
Given a choice you can pee on me and NOT kill me.
If it’s a Taliban, you can do both IMHO.
Their decent and humane treatment of our troops.
dumb to do it, dumb to record it, even dumber to let it out. hopefully these guys are separated already.
Its not like they burned the bodies, hung them from a bridge or dragged them through the streets. Heck they didn’t even stuff bacon fat in their mouths which should be mandatory.

There certainly is something wrong here: Whenever the word `Marine’ is used to reference a branch of the U.S. armed forces composed chiefly of amphibious troops under the authority of the Secretary of the Navy, it is always capitalized.
Hey—when ya gotta go, ya gotta go!
Seriously...get OUT of my head.
They’ve been doing it for 1400 years, no big surprise.
Those were Blackwater personnel, but your point is still valid.
Just think of all the sediment and silt they would have kicked up ^without^ that erosion control!
“four men in combat gear standing over the three corpses with their genitals exposed as they relieve themselves.”
DOH! How do you pee without exposing your genitals?
It wasn’t Times Square, after all.
Who wrote this idiocy?
I was going to post the picture but it pisses me off everytime I see it.
Just like watching the move Blackhawk Down.
And now they want to do it to the whole world.
Sorry....can’t summon up any pity for ‘em, here.
“Marine! Did you piss on those dead taliban?”
“Yes, Sir, I did.”
“Why did you do that?”
“Because, Sir, I took a dump this morning before we left and I didn’t have anything left to growl out on them.”
Butchered Americans are butchered Americans.
