Skip to comments.U.S. Marines probe video of men urinating on Taliban corpses
Posted on 01/11/2012 6:04:29 PM PST by Pan_Yan
The video, which was posted on YouTube and other websites, shows four men in camouflage Marine combat uniforms urinating on the bodies of three dead Taliban.
One of them jokes: "Have a nice day, buddy." Another makes a lewd joke about a shower.
A copy of the video can be seen here
"While we have not yet verified the origin or authenticity of this video, the actions portrayed are not consistent with our core values and are not indicative of the character of the Marines in our Corps," the Marines said in a statement.
"This matter will be fully investigated."
Two U.S. military officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the video appeared to be authentic at first look but Reuters could not independently verify the video or its source.

I thought this was SOP.
War is hell; and sometimes wet.
Better to be urinated on than set on fire, dragged through the streets and hung from a bridge.
Just don’t film it.
I do not like to see reports of U.S. soldiers cutting off fingers or ears of dead Taliban. It just strikes me as disgusting.
On the other hand, I am perfectly happy to see them urinated on.

Would pig urine be better - to convince them that they’re not going to get 72 virgins if they mess with us?
Okay, so the Left has convinced people that Pi** Christ is high art but pi** showers for dead terrorists is sacrilege.
Why would Marine Corps officials even make a comment before being able to authenticate the video? This kind of presentation can be easily staged and faked.
“urinating on the bodies of three dead Taliban.”
Awww. What a shame.
Well they could have tore there genitals off and chopped there heads off and paraded them around hung them from street light f them they got off easy
They can always claim they were just trying to cleanse them. You know their feet have to be washed ... and urine does a nice job, in a pinch, to kill toe fungus!
ask me if I care
Amazing the higher ups would take the time from probing each other...
Dishonorable discharge maybe even a few months behind bars. This kind of disgusting and pointless vulgarity will just further enrage the Afghan mob and may cause violent retaliation against other soldiers, these retards may have inadvertently killed American soldiers.
Well it’s better to pissed off than pissed on...oh wait. Nice to see some priorities still remain.
Gee whiz... er holy crap...
GET OUT SOME BACON GUYS!
Before anyone starts wailing about this, let’s not forget that these are the Taliban we’re talking about, here. They don’t care a whit how they’d behave, if the situation were reversed. Their atrocities are far, far worse.
The Koranimals are bipedal automatons, and do not deserve to be dignified by being considered human.
What a waste of pi$$!
Love all the sappy handwringing on the site. “Oh, this is so shameful!” “How can the Marine’s investigate themselves?”
We are at war.
These are US Marines peeing on dead Taliban.
This is a good thing.
Very good point.
Let’s rename the Marines “Occupy Taliban”... then they can poop on them too.
I doubt it. Most Taliban don't have time for youtube. Cutting off girl's noses and executing adulterers doesn't leave time for much else.
Coincidentally, both Reuters and Islam aren’t worth pissing on....
I agree with him.
However our Freedom is protected by hard men that do an unpleasant job.
In the course of that job our troops encounter people that do much worse things to our soldiers. The fellow soldiers of these men may have be maimed or killed in cowardly ways by the friends of these dead Taliban.
We who are not in the line of fire must remember that is not possible to see your friends maimed and killed and not feel anger and hatred to those doing these things.
When Sherman said war is hell it was not a joke. These men have been to hell. Do not judge them until you have walked in their shoes.
Aww lookie there, somebody threw away 3 perfectly good talibans.
Those disgusting little scum supported the death of 3000 Americans, shot at our troops and somehow this is going to get more of our troops killed. Give me a break. If I was in charge there wouldn’t even be a Afghanistan person alive to kill one more American. To many people loss sight of the fact that they want our brother sisters son and daughters dead.
Congradulations. you said the secret word "72 virgins" and you win $200 and deal with this..>>>
Piss on their faces and tell them that it’s raining.
I think the whiners need a special "right to bitch" one week training course after which they're dropped of in the middle of bad guy country with whatever ammo they can carry, fifteen year old rations, a compass, and part of the map they need. Tell them that if they find their way back to friendlies that are, "just sixty miles over yonder", and they're still upset about the corpses of the people who tried to kill them their complaint forms will be stuck at the bottom of the pile of paper the VA routinely takes a decade to process.
Lets rename the Marines Occupy Taliban... then they can poop on them too.
Triumph, the insult comic dog, agrees.
“I like Taliban...FOR ME TO POOP ON!!!”
Note for future reference: From now on we should p!ss on them while they’re alive. Then kill’em.
Some folks here disagree with you.
General Pershing was never censured.
And I don't think the Marines should be, either.
I encourage everyone to look at your posting history.
Promote those men... see if any of them want to run for congress
I’m trying to care about this. I just can’t manage it.
Oh BS. Who gives a good damn about enraging a people who want you dead anyway.?
Do you really think that this will make them want to kill Americans faster than they already do?
It may draw them out where American soldiers can kill them quicker.
You can tell we all feel pretty bad about this.........
Pee is not needed to “enrage” Muslims ... non muslims breathing is enough
"People sleep peacefully in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to visit violence on those who would do them harm."
The Afghan mob is pretty raunchy itself. I doubt they take offense from any of this ~ besides, watching TV or videos is UNTALIBAN ~ there’s a death penalty for such behavior.
Compared to what the taliban have done to captured infidels (i.e. our troops), I would say they got off pretty easy. After seeing images of the bodies of US troops being hung from bridges, burned, beheaded, and other awful things, the taliban should be lucky that we just don’t carpet bomb their a$$e$ into oblivion. Total warfare requires total commitment, and the taliban is trying to use our media to break our will to fight. They took the strategy straight out of the north vietnamese playbook. Don’t fall for it, their goal is to break our will to fight.
I just finished reading this nOOb's posting history too. He's an idiot "concern" troll who takes every opportunity to bash Gingrich as a serial adulterer.
All the "concern" trolls seem to do that.
The enemy hates the Americans. Understand that. Oh, and welcome to FR.
Don’t the Marines know the pigs those Taliban will be fed to might catch a disease that way?
Troops need to be trained to NOT screw around on camera. Bad stuff always turns up.
