Skip to comments.Urinating on the Dead: Marine Performance Art?
Posted on 01/14/2012 9:26:46 PM PST by Impala64ssa
You may have heard about American soldiers who urinated on the bodies of some dead Taliban insurgents. I suspect that the dead soldiers tried to kill American soldiers. War is hell. People are killed. Bodies are mutilated, blown to bits by bombs and shrapnel, and incinerated. My father had his right leg blown off in the Korean War. He would have preferred to have been urinated on if he could have kept his leg.
Heres how Dan Murphy of the Christian Science Monitor reported on the story:
The military is investigating, and appears to have identified the four marines. Their military careers, its safe to say, are close to over and a court martial is almost certain. A deeper look into the Marine unit involved and its command environment is coming down the pike. Thats as it should be.
But remember that if you put enough men in combat, for enough time, this sort of thing is likely to happen.
So theres outrage by public officials and apologies are being sent at the speed of light. Heres what Congressman Allen West, with more than 20 years of active duty service in the United States Army, had to say about the incident:
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.

The Leftist movement in this nation is pretty close to this level of performance art. They’ve been pissing on us citizens for decades, and still haven’t a clue how fed up we are at.
The Marines should be given a medal for going above and beyond to protect their fellow brother in arms. The Muslim dogs believe that when they are killed fighting the infedel (USMC,IDF,etc..) they go to heaven to 72 Virgins, However being buried in pig skin or having infidel pee on the body ruins that whole plan, since the Jihadi is now impure. This will have a direct result on the Jihadi bustards be less willing to fight against our man — assuming it was our policy to treat their dead against the UnHolly Quran.
Yes desecration of the dead is a BAD THING (TM) however in a given situation it should be encouraged, when it comes to dealing with Religion of Death, it gives direct tactical advantage. The Hamas and the link say so them-selfs: The infidels love life,we love death! Let them have death soaked in urine.
Unfortunately, the Obama gang in WiteHut loves the Muslim dead then USMC guys who are alive! Thats the scary part.
Surely they’ve heard the expression “I’ll piss on your grave”...well these Marines were just getting a head start.
Yeah, it’s part of our culture, sorta like beating your wife with a stick or chopping off hands for stealing. Don’t be messin’ with our cultural traditions, now!
I like Col. Allen West but, respectfully I disagree with him on this. The Saracens immolated 3,000 Americans on 9/11. Three Marines piss on three dead Saracen worthless bastards. They did that to us, so we did this to them. Whats the problem?
I say pissing on them was very mild. Yeah, I am an old Marine, and remember what the VC/NVA would do to our guys after death. Deal with it. The Marines were there, the liberal media was not.
I could not give a shiite what they think.
"You only made one mistake....you let somebody see you do it."
“The Dirty Dozen (1967): Major Reisman (Lee Marvin) to Wladislaw (Charles Bronson) imprisoned for killing an officer who was deserting on the battlefield:
“You only made one mistake....you let somebody see you do it.”
I have to admit I smiled when I heard this news on the radio here in Canada-I can perfectly understand their sentiments. But they made a mistake videotaping it.
btw, speaking of Charles Bronson—my mysband and I watched “Once Upon a Time in the West” today. :)
Pissing on them is just offering the respect they are due!
I could use some artwork in there.
The movie is on the military channel right now and I just heard that line.What timing.
There ain’t a damn thing wrong with the US Marine Corps.
My take on this is that he is pretty much correct. They do need to be disciplined for filming and posting it; not for having done it.
Wow, I know some infantry and SEAL types who would nearly die for that kind of recognition. "Hey, you're one of them that pissed on those Taliban?"
War is hell. These nutless wonder posters need to get over themselves.
Why don't you spend some time in a VFW or American Legion hall, drinking with men. It is much better than ESPN for male development. Maybe after a while you will understand what happens to your hormones and thought processes when your buddy buys the farm defending you. It is not spiking the ball for theatrics, is is releasing an overload of tension. So they taped it it... And it got out. And now all the back-benchers are in full cry with their outrage. Who published this, ask yourself that, and then think to yourself, well, if this happened we know about, what happened in a war zone where an act was not taped, or it is was, it did not get out. Here is a clue... A LOT happens that does not get out. Piss on every one here who thinks this is wrong.
In 1965 my fathers pal was a flyer in Viet Nam, he was trained in survival and he told both my brother and me, urine will sterilize a wound. Could our marines have only been guilty of rendering first aid to wounded Taliban fighters and not merely peeing on them as some under informed liberal journalists have implied?
Just a thought.
if this happened in san francesspool, it would have been called water sports and been a featured event at the folsom street fair
Still, the way people undertake mourning for their own dead is pretty much their own business ~ which, alas, is a standard not respected by our own courts. More than one judge has found himself ruling that a cross along the highway where someone was killed is an un-permitted state establishment of religion.
With the federal courts, the ACLU and the Westboro church crowd allowed to run rampant in this nation creating distress on the way ordinary folks conduct funerals or show grief, it's pretty clear the Marines here had NO PUBLIC STANDARD AVAILABLE at the highest levels to tell them this sort of behavior was probably NOT in the public interest.
I have not yet seen the ACLU joining in this one ~ they know their own brutal ways will be highlighted should they do so!
If anyone is to blame in this it is, of course, the US Supreme Court for setting a very bad example. Next time let Justice Roberts and Ginsburg travel to Kabul to justify this to the Taliban.
In some cultures they eat their hearts...men being men.
I know there are women in the military but I don’t think they bother with the peeing and eating hearts.
If they could write their names in large letters in the snow they’d been in on it.
Just to keep it simple for the jarheads:
This falls under FREE SPEECH....protected by the first amendment for US citizens. Might as well use this argument for our side, the left has used it for everything from artwork to flag burning.
“Personally, I would love to have a Taliban urinal puck.”
I prefer a Osama toilet bowl brush.
I thought of the sterility angle.
PISS BE UPON THEM!!!
Patton did the same thing to the enemy. Was that a sign of unit breakdown in discipline?
YOU PEE FOR ME, MARINE
You pee for us all, Marine.
This has to do with the video that popped up yesterday. Its 40 seconds, and it shows four Marines standing above the bodies of some dead Taliban.
Peeing on them.
Have a great day, buddy, one of the Marines says to the corpse at his feet.
America is at war with militant Islam. In Afghanistan, the Taliban is militant Islam. In Afghanistan, the Taliban gave refuge and support to Al Qaeda as it prepared the attacks of September 11. In Afghanistan, the Taliban works around the clock to put American servicemen in their graves.
The Taliban are the bad guys.
And the United States Marines are the good guys.
And this is much ado about nothing.
Because the brass are crapping their in pants.
This is egregious, disgusting behavior, said Pentagon spokesman Capt. John Kirby. It turned my stomach.
Kirbys branch of the Service is not listed, but Im guessing its Girl Scouts.
It turned his stomach?
We are a Nation at war. Weve had thousands of Americans die. Weve brought hundreds of thousands home with losses of limb and mind, and THIS turns his stomach?
That is not exactly a warrior spirit.
And it makes you wish that men like those urinating Marines were running this operation.
But they are not.
And they will be crucified.
Because our military establishment specializes in throwing young GIs under the bus. Any number of desk jockeys and political Generals are glad to backstab as many warriors as they can. In the White House and at the Pentagon, the god of political correctness is fed with the frequent sacrifice of young soldiers careers.
You send people to war, but heaven help them if they act like it. Hamstrung by Marquis of Queensbury rules in a bar fight with savages, our GIs are attacked by enemy fighters on one side and government lawyers on the other.
Its a funny game where no one has their back.
Except the American people.
Which gets me back to my point.
You pee for us all, Marine.
That group of Camp Lejeune snipers is condemned by the political Generals, but embraced by the American people.
Because thats what you get when you screw with the United States of America. You get a bullet through the brainpan, and were going to line up to spit on the pieces.
Unless we have a full bladder.
And show the YouTube far and wide, as a warning to your pals. This is what it means to mess with America. The pantywaists in the Pentagon might want to win your hearts and minds, but the men pulling the triggers want to snap your freaking necks.
And some 310 million real Americans feel the same way. Mess with the best, die like the rest. The sooner the better, the more the merrier, and dont be surprised if its not Holy Water you get sprinkled with.
Real people arent bothered by this.
Real people believe this is how war should be fought.
Real people think that weve pussyfooted around long enough, its time to make the rubble bounce. Pull the B-52’s out of the barn and lets light those mo-fos up.
And real people are sick and tired of the feigned indignation coming out of the Pentagon and White House. Life is not group therapy and war is not run by Robert Rules of Order. War is where you kill people and break the will of a Society.
War is where you make the other guy cry Uncle.
Ask the people of Hiroshima and Dresden.
Or Atlanta, for that matter.
You attack the United States and you die. You die ugly. There are only two sure winners us and the maggots. And any people, Nation or Religion that cant stand that heat should stay the hell out of the kitchen.
So if you dont want to be blown to bits and pieces, and pissed on by fine examples of American manhood, then you better stay home with Mama. You better lay off the jihad. You better learn some manners and mind your P’s and Q’s.
Because Lady Liberty is shaking her fist.
And thats not just some words in a song.
Thats our pledge.
Were going to kill you, and were going to cheer the men who do it.
And the rest of you goat-bearded savages better shake in your sandals, because those Marines pee for us.
And theyre coming for you next.
