The U.S. Marine Corps is investigating a video that surfaced online today in which several Marines appear to urinate on the corpses of suspected Taliban fighters.
The video, which is less than a minute long, appears to show four men in uniform looking around before urinating on three dead bodies, at least one of the men chuckles as they do so.
"Have a great day, buddy," one of the men is heard saying, apparently to a dead body

Personally, the Marines' action doesn't bother me a bit...but I sure would like to see some consistency with the Hussein worshipping media.
Obviously the President and SecDef set the TONE in which this SYSTEMATIC abuse could occur!
Oh wait. Democrats hold both those offices?
- The MSM
Appropriate, but low class.
“... I would like to see some consistency...”
Bush’s fault (at least it is consistent)
Were the dead terrorists hurt? Did they get sick? Are they suing? Is this a war?
Who cares? Who is going to get pissed off about this?
I seem to remember international video of live people being beheaded. Dead people hanging from a bridge on fire and dead soldiers being dragged naked through streets.
Their dead and the soldiers have to pee somewhere.
And the problem with this is...?
How convenient that this comes out at the same time that massive cuts are planned in the Defense Department. Obama - winning hearts and minds. Ugh!
I think they should to pour pig’s blood on them ...they also need to air drop playboy so they can see pictures of naked women and have to kill them selves...this is a war fight to win any way you can!
urine the army now.
Meanwhile the Taliban and Al Quaeda, lop off heads, drag bodies through streets, burn bodies and hang them from bridges and not a peep from outraged Americans except to blame Bush for those atrocities. When is Barry and company going to get called out?
Our soldiers & marines are doing a fantastic job. They are not choir boys. Thank GOD there weren't cameras around when I was in.
I hope the Navy pissed on Ben before they feed him to the sharks. . . . . (I feel good they did it's the Navy you know)
The talibunnies were asking to be watered. The talibunnies thought urine would water them back to life, plugging their holes. Can’t blame the Marines. They were following the talibunnies last requests. Talibunnies certainly have strange ideas about their choices of water and life. Allah made the talibunnies do it.
I know we all share this sentiment but it isn’t something a US Marine should do. Marines hold themselves to a higher standard.
My feelings exactly, in fact I would demote any that didn't piss on the dead SOB's
Clearly the taliban bodies were on fire and our boys were helping to preserve the remains. In any case, humanizing the enemy is the best way to lose a war.
If Occupy Wall Street can crap on a police car, soldiers should be able to crap on the enemy!
I’ve always hoped I’d outlive Clintoon the “ Stainmaster” so I could pi$$ on his grave !
Understand there is ample supply when performing last rights for all talibunnies. It was another request from allah. allah knows all, and the way of the pig's blood is the way of allah for all talibunnies. It is somewhere in the manual. BlackJack said so, and who can doubt BlackJack. BlackJack will go unnamed for talibunnies everywhere would want the stains of the pig. Allah sent a message to high command, a long time ago saying, "Reward them with the red hog." Red is allah's favorite color.
May piss be upon mohammad head, by proxy?
War is ugly. Dehumanizing the enemy is a way to deal with the ugliness and the requirement to kill a fellow human being. I suppose some think this is a first...they should study history.
The Maine Corps, like all modern politically correct institutions, we punish these Marines enthusiastically but those of us who have served in combat have seen a lot worse stuff than this.
When we ask some of our children to lose all their youth in warfare and maybe more, maybe we should just take away their video cameras and welcome them home.
Gays in the military call this a golden shower? It is a gay thing so it is ok. Are you a bigot? Back off!
They hurt the feelings of the dead. I see sensitive training in their future.
I guess to enlist in the military and fight you need to first go to diplomacy school and get credentialed as a diplomat?
Unfortunately, there is little diplomatic subtlety involved in being a sniper, especially to the enemy.
We’ll see if the Marine Corps still takes care of its own. These guys are not diplomats, they kill the enemy. If these guys get anything but a stern talking to for public urination, it will be a tragic.
Amen. Putting a round or dozen through these guys' chests while they were alive gets a pass, but taking a tinkle on them when they're dead is horrifying?
War is hell. Did anyone think otherwise?
The Bolshecrat mind set is defecating on police cars, good, urinating on buckets of puss, bad.
Options are limited when you are not allowed to pee towards Mecca.
“War is ugly. Dehumanizing the enemy is a way to deal with the ugliness...”
Yes, it is. And I think it is more than appropiate to do so when 5 minutes earlier these goat-f***ers were trying to blow your head off and drag your burning body through the streets.
I look at it as the ultimate ‘spiking the football’ moment after scoring a touchdown. Piss on ‘em all.
We will never win another war as long as we play by the PC rules.
I’m trying to be upset about this. I want to be upset about this. But I’m just not upset about this.
BINGO X 10,000!!!!! Lock the thread...no further comment necessary. Also, congrats for "goat-f***ers" reference, which I also write frequently, plus an occasional camel.
We didn't play by the Marquis of Queensberry rules when we fought the Japanese or the Germans for that matter. Pissing on some dead bodies doesn't bother me in the least. I have seen worse when it comes to desecrating corpses.
It might be better to pour gasoline and then a lit match than to urinate on them.
Maybe they were on fire?
I am sure they did just off camera. I sure hope so anyway.
I do not condone this, but I understand it. That there is a video (if authentic) is what bothers me. Not a smart move.
Let’s just hope these Marine Patriots get off with a ceremonial ‘scolding’ and are not tried in the World Court for wartime atrocities.
Marines are human. This isn't some academic exercise, it is real war. If you think the Marines fought the Japanese in the Pacific showing some great respect for Japanese bodies, you are sadly mistaken. And I can tell you from firsthand experience in Vietnam, that was not the case. When someone is trying to kill you and your buddies, you could care less about how their corpses are treated.
From what I heard Benny was porked before he was fed to the sharks. You know those frozen hotdogs? Supposedly two of those ended up in a couple of his orifices. That and the pint of blood detonated after the carrier was down the road so to speak, ensured that Benny was recycled appropriately.
GO NAVY. I knew I could count on them.
I love the Navy except when they play the Army in football.
They shouldn’t even get a scolding. They are fighting a war, but they have orders not to fire until fired upon. That plus the nature of the enemy leads to stuff like pissing on corpses.
Well put Georgia Girl 2...at least you TRIED to be upset. :)
Good cause there is nothing to be upset about. Nothing.
We are sending our finest off to KILL the enemy. Not play tiddlie winks with them. KILL THEM, before they KILL us.
It's not an easy assignment. When you get a chance to dishonor one of them you take it.
Liberal pantie waste cry babies never understand. When someone is trying their damnedest to kill you and will blow you to bits with half a chance, then a little pee is no big deal.
Cajuns call it hooky junk. That is what it is hooky junk.
As I said in a earlier post, thank GOD cameras were not around much when I was in. Any combat veteran can tell stories that would make your hair stand up. It's just the way it is. . . . . . . . . .
When you gotta go, you gotta go.
I had the honor of serving with a Marine hero, Sgt. Lew Hirschman. He served in China with the 4th Marines and another Marine legend, Lou Diamond. Lew was told to march several Japanese POWs captured in one of many battles he was in. He marched them out of sight and promptly shot them. An officer threatened to have him court-martialed and Lew told him bluntly: “Payback for the Maryland”. Lew had lost several friends on the USS Maryland at Pearl Harbor.
Maybe this was unnecessary, but walk a mile in their shoes before criticizing.
Semper fi, Do or die
Somehow, after 9-11, the beheadings, dragging of American troops’ bodies through the streets, hanging of charred bodies from bridges, suicide bombs that kill indiscriminately, and targeting of churches and schools by muslims...
... I’m having a hard time dredging up a reason to feel bad about this.
If Bush were still President, ABC would go to the ends of the earth to get that video out for all to see.
