It is highly disgusting and out of character for Marines to conduct themselves this way. In my time during active duty serves I have crossed paths with a few Marines with bad attitudes or a mentality that would lead to an act like in this video, but I can tell you that this is the exception to the norm. The damage that these Marine have done to the image of professional soldiers will have ramifications for years to come. I hope that they are punished appropriately and dishonorable discharged.

From the story:

Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said of what is shown in the video. "We strongly condemn this inhumane action by the wild American soldiers."

Taliban condemning inhumane action? That's rich from someone whose people killed, burned and hung the bodies of eight Americans from a bridge.

Next time Mr. Mujahid is making a statement, just put a bullet between his eyes.

Thank you… I take a lot of pride in the fact that I served in the USMC, and it really bothers me when fellow Marines act in such a way that opens up so many others in the field of battle to more danger or attacks. Furthermore, these actions as just so unnecessary because these combatants are dead, they won that battle; there was no need to desecrate the dead that way.

My crazy side is talking now: THEY SHOULD HAVE TAKEN GIANT S**TS ON THE BODIES AS WELL AS PISS ON THEM. THEN COVERED THE TALIBAN CARCASSES WITH PIGS MEAT AND BLOOD! F**K THE TALIBAN. F**K 'EM RIGHT IN THE EAR. WHO CARES ABOUT THIS? THEY BEHEAD INNOCENTS AND WOMEN FOR THE SLIGHTEST OFFENSE (THEY EXECUTE WOMEN FOR BEING RAPED--WTF???). THEY DRAG OUR DEAD BEHIND VEHICLES THROUGH THE STREETS OR DISMEMBER THEM. F**K THE TALIBAN! F**K THE TALIBAN! F**K THE MOTHERF****NG TALIBAN!

my sane side says: Ok thats pretty disrespectful. Don't be stupid and let your friends record you doing stupid stuff, knowing full well that it will go viral and provoke a global outrage, because the regular non war fighting people in the US will find this "deplorable". These guys have to have been through some real s**t to feel it necessary to piss on the dead. In fact, I'll bet you that in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam that there were soldiers who did the exact same same thing, when happing across dead enemies.

What is "utterly deplorable" is Panetta sending the Marines into battle risking their lives for their country and then having their own government comdemning them as though they were the enemy.This is the obama administration at work.

BINGO......This act is an insult to the Marine Corps

But it shows the rotten heart of SOME of our troops and many Americans

We are defeated...we just do not have the courage to admit it.

You have the right to that opinion, but don't call yourself an American.
