My view is that, instead of urinating, the marines should have cut their heads off and placed them on a stick. This would be far less hideous than a good healthy leak. War is hell, yes? Especially when your comrades have been mutilated by these barbarians in the name of God. Let's be realistic. These barbarians are not entitled to humanitarian treatment.
That is not the conduct of intelligent people; that is not how a professional soldier acts. Everyone is entitled to humane treatment, but you need to be alive in order to be treated humanely. So since these guys were dead, their remains should have been treated with the same respect that we treat our dead with.

This makes sense, and I believe that those three men should
be punished------FOR BEING STUPID! I am certain that the peeing thing has happened before in wartime out of anger, and an intelligent person
does not pee on someone in front of a camera, nes pas?

How many of these so-called make-believe wannabe squat-to-pee [teenaged?] imaginary [Internet?] "professional" veterans and soldiers have shot at insurgents, through a rifle scope, at one thousand meters, depending on training and experience instead of hope? Or does their fleeting Internet fame really come from them playing video games?

THIS IS ALL THAT AMERICA HAS TO OFFER AFGHANS. AMERICAN HAS LOST THE AFGHAN WAR

Yep, after all the talk about bringing freedom and putting an end to torture rooms, all that America offers Afghans is to piss on Afghan people and expect Afghans to love America!!!!!

Americans have contempt and disgust for Afghans as people. These marines express the true feelings and beliefs of Americans for Afghans. Any Afghan who collaborates with Americans are traitors to the Afghan nation.

Every Afghan man, woman and child needs to see this video and understand that this is what America thinks of them, their families, friends, leaders, culture, and everything they cherish and value in life, and death. They should then draw their own conclusions as to who best represents the interests of the Afghan people.

You are like a Nazi marched through Auschwitz to confront the crimes and you respond by, "don't mess with us war criminals because we are animals loathed by the world and love it!" LOL.

Here's a clue to you. While you sit safely in America, American combat troops will pay in blood for this stupid disgusting act that stains the honor and reputation of America before the whole world. But of course you are safely on your couch in America and don't have to worry about having an IED blow your nuts off, so what do you care about American troops on the frontline--you can trash talk and know you are in a safe place, back in America, not at the front! You are smart not to enlist--don't give me the crap about being a highly decorated vet.
Hey guess what? Unless your a$$ is posting this from AFGHANISTAN you're no different! Posting from the safety of your couch!!!! And yes, I AM A VETERAN!

Every Veteran in our military is serving because they chose to do so. No one today was drafted in. This is their job, and it is what they were trained to do.
If you are too cowardly to march at their side, then you are too cowardly to be taken seriously. Go rally around the footprint of the American chicken (aka Peace sign). It is my military brethren and sisters that assures that you have the right to do so.
Amen!!!! If they can't stand behind our troops, please let them stand in front of them!

I'm afraid that Ron Paul is the lone and only Republicun who is not a Jewish or Pentagon-PAC-rat pimp; boldly and bravely babbling about increasing military spending that will be never ending until the real private-sector nongovernment economy finally collapses under this big-government American Empire Cold War crap.

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.
MARINE IMPOSTER!!what active duty time you lying piece of crap?if you crossed paths with a real marine he would stomp your ass!both you and panetta should be pissed on!!!!

It is sort of hard to be empathetic, sympathetic, moderate, tolerant and sensitive, you see, when you and your buddies are being ambushed and blown up by IEDs; causing them and you and death and pain, some of it caused and created by the so-called allies that you have fed, supported and trained. It is a sad fact that you can not turn your back due to the risk of being attacked, by backward barbaric brutal savage fanatic kooks who will trash your books.
