Outrage Over Video of Marines Urinating on Corpses

Jan 12, 2012 | Posted by: Politix Staff Ed | Full story: gawker.com

Politics Staff Feature

Marine Corps commanders are investigating a video which appears to show US Marines urinating on Afghan corpses. The video has sparked outrage, and the marines' behavior has been condemned by Hillary Clinton and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta.

Hamilton Nolan at Gawker.com gives an interesting take on what he sees as self-righteous outrage over the video:

The outrage machine grinds into motion. ... Americans momentarily pay attention to the war in Afghanistan again. Politicians rush to add their names to the chorus of identical statements. All inflamed over the least bad thing that soldiers do in war.
Do you know what is worse than having your dead body urinated upon? Being killed. Being shot. Being bombed.
Your take: Should we be outraged by the marines' behavior? Were you shocked by the video?

Unless you have been in their situation then none of you should be passing judgement.
These guys see their friends get killed, dismembered, shredded to pieces, and every other horror of war.
Does anyone know what the Taliban TERRORISTS were doing prior to this?
Those that are condeming these men, do you realize that the corpses they were pissing on were the corpses of people that would slit your throat and cut your head off simply because you aren't a Muslim?
I understand our President, and I use that term losely when it comes to Obama, and our media hyave to act all outraged and condenm it, that's just politics and correctness.
Can you imagine knowing someone you love is on the 100th floor of a building on fire, with no hope of getting down, and having to make the decesion to either jump or burn to death? Then you turn on the TV and their is a news story showing these bastards celebrating in the street and calling Bin Laden a hero.
I don't know about you, but I damn sure would want to do a lot worse then just piss on their corpse.
These Marines should be given that medal they came up with for restraint. Can't think of what it is called at the moment, but in my opinion, they used restraint.
I love my country and I would die defending her. But I wouldn't give a rats ass for these bleeding heart people that act all self righteous about these terrorists. It is the infection of Liberalism that allowed our country to go from being attacked on own soil, to 10 years later having a President named "Hussein" and caring more about the "feelings" and the "rights" of the very people who attacked us.
I love America, but there is a segment of our population that makes me want to puke.
I couldn't have said it better myself. Amen and God bless.

Republican ,Tea party ,Florida GOV.Rick Scott has declared war on veterans while draping the flag over his self serving ,hypocrite shoulder.

"There is a $35 million cut to the Department of Veterans Affairs and a $173 million cut to the Agency for Persons With Disabilities right alongside a $300 million INCREASE to the Executive Office of the Governor.

And to think Scott had the nerve to unveil that inside a church."

I wish Democrats "loved" and "supported" veterans just like we republiKlans do pfffffft.

"Rather than trim from the Pentagon's budget, the GOP assembled its package of $61 billion in cuts from deep reductions to non-defense discretionary programs, including $2.6 billion in funding provided to care for America's veterans through the Veterans Administration.

Leaders of VA's largest union, the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), say that the reductions threaten the health care and benefits delivery services provided by VA employees."

"And the Democrats have lived up to that duty, he said. Since they took the lead in Congress in 2006 and since President Obama was sworn into office, "we have seen the greatest increase in the VA budget since World War II," Cleland pointed out. In the past 72 months of Democratic Party leadership, the VA has seen a budget increase of 45 percent."

No you didn't understand. I'm asking what your attitude is to the 1.8 million Americans who are Muslims? From what you write, you seem to wish death upon them. So it sounds as though you should not be serving the American people, seeing as you want to kill 1.8 million of them.
And how about the American Muslims who want to force Sharia law upon us? They kill their own children in the name of "honor." They refuse to turn in the extremists who use their mosques as recruiting stations. When these "peaceful" Muslims decide to act like Americans and respect the laws of our country then they will not be subjected to our suspictions.
Remember this...in our country you can worship as you please as long as your religious practices do not break our laws or trample upon the rights of others.
BEING MUSLIM DOES NOT GIVE THEM ANY SPECIAL RIGHTS.

Just typical of the worlds mostly left leaning media.

Why not blanket coverage and outrage on the security contractors body's hung from bridges what about blanket coverage and outrage from US marines being beheaded and guttered no that is not in their interests ( agenda) seams very one sided and really you could believe it is the reporting from the enemy itself.

By this style of reporting our troops be it US Australian or British whoever are now put at more risk from attacks really the jerks making these decisions need a serious reality check or be trial led for treason.
