I could care less. Don't want to be pissed on by U.S. Marines? Don't do bad things anywhere near U.S. Marines.

I think there shouldn’t have been a video.

Yeah... I read the first fifty or so; I didn’t see a lot of negative comments towards the Marines.

I agree with “Justathought19”, who wrote:
“Should have $hit on them”

Indeed!

To quote a friend:

The dead taliban covered in Jarhead pee is a FRIGGIN MASTERPIECE.

Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta said he had viewed the video and considered it “utterly deplorable.” He telephoned Afghan President Hamid Karzai and pledged a full investigation.

Panetta is such a pathetic douche. And aren't the Taliban supposed to be Karzai's enemy? So why are we apologizing to him?

This is what I get out of it:
1) Those draining the weasel are draining out their honor. Now if the taliban guys were alive and not bound, say the marines snuck up on them and pee’d off a roof onto them, then that takes brass balls. But this is without honor or bravery or anything. It’s pretty lame.
2) The guy who filmed it was dumb as a box of rocks for doing it and doubled down letting it into the public, whether by accident or otherwise.
3) Those that got filmed are even more dumb letting themselves be put on tape. And a tape out of their control!

It comes down to this: no honor, no merit, no gain, just dumb.

Find the idiot holding the video camera and punish him.

Then issue letters of reprimands to the rest of the team for letting themselves be videotaped. Stupid move.

Other than that ... SEMPER FI, MARINES!!

Word of advice to any would be muslim terrorists:

You do not want to be on the receivng end of what The United States Marine Corp can send your way. You might as well just surrender now, or just lay down your arms and disappear, forever.

Since you asked...

I think they should be stripped immediately of their current rank...and placed in charge of the Marines and other branches... Because those currently holding those positions are clearly not up to the job thanks to kowtowing to PC BS.

Muslim ‘holy warriors’ are not to be shown respect in any capacity. They are to be eliminated from the world stage with extreme and rapid prejudice, as is any person supporting or defending them. They are the enemy and should be given no quarter.

As to the psyops aspects, we are not fighting an ‘honorable’ foe. We are fighting human garbage that deserves every humiliation that we can pile upon them. Were it up to me I’d have our troops actually fighting evil rather that giving it sustenance and deference.

When we fight an enemy that due to their “religion” does not rape children, treat women like farm animals, have a love of ‘dancing boys’ and do any of the thousands of inhumane, repulsive and grotesque things to their own people, I’ll feel bad over a few emptied American bladders. As of now, I’m all for treating them with the exact ‘respect’ they give us.

None.

Personally, I’m disappointed. I hate to see American men acting scummy. I like to think American men are different. But I guess they aren’t. Not anymore. I think the kind of man personified by John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart, that sort of man, wouldn’t do something so crass and vulgar. But today’s batch of fatherless children, well... they show about as much dignity as women who dress like hookers.

Gen. James Mattis

* You go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn’t wear a veil. You know, guys like that ain’t got no manhood left anyway. So it’s a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them. Actually it’s quite fun to fight them, you know. It’s a hell of a hoot. It’s fun to shoot some people. I’ll be right up there with you. I like brawling.

* For the mission’s sake, for our country’s sake, and the sake of the men who carried the Division’s colors in past battles — “who fought for life and never lost their nerve” — carry out your mission and keep your honor clean. Demonstrate to the world there is “No Better Friend — No Worse Enemy” than a US Marine.

* Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

* I come in peace. I didn’t bring artillery. But I’m pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you f—k with me, I’ll kill you all.

* In this age, I don’t care how tactically or operationally brilliant you are, if you cannot create harmony—even vicious harmony—on the battlefield based on trust across service lines, across coalition and national lines, and across civilian/military lines, you need to go home, because your leadership is obsolete. We have got to have officers who can create harmony across all those lines.

* PowerPoint makes us stupid.

unsourced

* It’s the mission of every Marine in this Battalion to send one dead Iraqi home to Mama.

Failure of leadership, a camera is not combat gear neither is a phone anyone caught with either after live ammo call should be required to hide in a place where it would turn brown. The man running boot needs to lose a pay grade.

Best comment on the poll page ran a few hours ago and roughly said:
Only libs would encourage people to dangerously exchange bodily fluids in all sorts of promiscuous acts and then complain about bodily fluids sprayed upon enemy corpses.

Marines urinating on barbarians, who not only don’t follow western mores, but are sworn to oppose them. As compared to Occupy savages defecating on police cars or their Commander in Chief doing both on the Constitution. On the one hand media can’t hit the broad side of any real scandal. On the other hand our Marines are being hit from the wrong direction. Any student of history knows that the effective way to desecrate such corpses is to build a pyramid out of their skulls. Such was the only successful tactic against these tribes since Alexander the Great.

Gives new meaning to “Peeze on You”.

“I give you peeze”

“I go to peezes, when I see you lying there”.

“Go with the flow”

“Dead men don’t care”

“They looked like they wanted a drink”

“This is for the school kids you bombed, you Islamic bastards”
