If the guy'd had a Quaran in his hand, he might have gotten a $750 fine.

I think it's stupid, but don't really care. I'm sure they would do much worse to our corpses if they had the chance, like drag them through the street in front of the cameras.

/good on them


It's not that he pissed on a corpse, because who gives a shiat about that, it's that he *was filmed* pissing on a corpse. Anyone that retarded needs to be made an example of, to teach other soldiers a lesson. The US, whether you like it or not, is extremely concerned about PR, and this was a PR disaster, more so than actually killing innocent people.

A $500 fine doesn't really do much to underline that.

Godscrack: Oh for heaven's sake.

What is it with this Christian military and their fetish for body excretions? First Abu Ghraib various excremental assaults on prisoners, inmates heads forced into toilets at Guantanamo, now this.

Was Jesus into scat or something?

Is there a way to "rightfully" do that?

Ummmm... if you were a Marine you'd know it's spelled corps, not core.


If you were really a Farker, you'd respect a man who lets his wife type for him.

dropdfun: I remember one nice little slice of the world I was deployed to and had a local ask me if it was true that I had to kill one of my parents or siblings to join the Marine Corps. I of course answered yes, tis better to have people of the world think we are a bunch of crazed maniac killers then some soft loving kumbaya tards. I mean really, who would you rather fight, some weak hippie or some dude that offed his mother just for the chance to go to a foreign nation and lay some rounds down range at your noggin.


I'd rather them believe us to be educated, intelligent, honorable, and willing to stand up for our beliefs even when those beliefs require us to travel the more difficult path.

Or idiot fascists, I guess that works some.

Anyone who thinks that pissing on a dead body is okay, regardless the context of the madness of war, is typically a sideline military cheerleader. One of those types who has a huge hard-on for bullets and bombs but never had the balls to join themselves.

The conversation that goes on within the military is uniformly condemning of this stupid, criminal act. It makes the Marine Corps and America look bad, and it inhibits mission accomplishment. He and these Marines actually helped the enemy by doing this. Those enemy were already dead, already out of the fight. Instead of having mission accomplishment with dead enemy on the ground, these Marines turned it into a political victory for the enemy.

Abuse of corpses is a violation of the law by which all service memebers agree to abide. And ultimately it is an immoral, disgusting act, no matter when and no matter where.

xkillyourfacex: We keep discharging guys like that and that's why we're losing the war. We don't need compassionate bleeding hearts in our military. We need killers. That's how wars are won. Discharging him because the ENEMY detests his actions... wtf? Does the enemy object to being blown to pieces by our artillery? Haven't most nations concluded our very involvement with the Taliban has become objectionable? So we end this guy's career over some PC bickering?


Your jib...I like the cut of it. I was going to post. "The next time we sit around and discuss why the US hasnt won a war in over 50 years...we need to bring this up."

THIS. I was in a similar place, asked the same question by a local about my beret (I was AF Law Enforcement) if it was true I had to kill a family member to earn my beret. I said yes, it was my brother, and I missed him but that was the way of the world. (I never even had a brother.) I agree, better to look like hard-assed, cold killers than weak, namby-pamby tourists.

This was handled with an article 15 non-judicial punishment, gut lost a stripe and some pay, nothing more. This "dishonorable discharge" in the headline was from the marine's bladder, not life ruining. He is still going to retire after 20 to 25 with a full pension. He might just end up being an E-7 instead of an E-8. It didn't really even hurt his career as a guy who pisses on dead people probably isn't going to be getting master gunnery sgt. or Sargent Major of the Marine Corp.

I give a shiat what the Taliban does, strapping bombs on children (never themselves), the woman who was raped is at fault, the little girl shot because she wanted an education, a hand cut off so the person has to eat with the hand he wipes his ass with, or even the guy killed because he drew a picture, how about a vow to kill all Christian people. These people are animals and we will never win their "hearts and minds". Sometimes you have to fight fire with fire.
The guys that were pissed on were in a fight (ambush) to try and kill our guys. I'm sure their emotions were running high at the time.
This area was at one time the Cradle of Civilization, and look at them now. All because the Taliban wants control and go back to the radical basics.

PR stupidity, but I'd bet a few bucks that this has been done in EVERY significant war by someone on every side. Eugene Sledge says in "With the Old Breed" that his lieutenant always sought out a Japanese corpse to pee on if possible.

Sure, it's pretty gross but a hell of a lot less offensive than beating girls who want to go to school, or murdering their teacher.

Rise Against - "Hero of War"

He said "Son, have you seen the world?
Well, what would you say if I said that you could?
Just carry this gun and you'll even get paid."
I said "That sounds pretty good."

Black leather boots
Spit-shined so bright
They cut off my hair but it looked alright
We marched and we sang
We all became friends
As we learned how to fight

A hero of war
Yeah that's what I'll be
And when I come home
They'll be damn proud of me
I'll carry this flag
To the grave if I must
Because it's a flag that I love
And a flag that I trust

I kicked in the door
I yelled my commands
The children, they cried
But I got my man
We took him away
A bag over his face
From his family and his friends

They took off his clothes
They pissed in his hands
I told them to stop
But then I joined in
We beat him with guns
And batons not just once
But again and again


A hero of war
Yeah that's what I'll be
And when I come home
They'll be damn proud of me
I'll carry this flag
To the grave if I must
Because it's a flag that I love
And a flag that I trust

She walked through bullets and haze
I asked her to stop
I begged her to stay
But she pressed on
So I lifted my gun
And I fired away

The shells jumped through the smoke
And into the sand
That the blood now had soaked
She collapsed with a flag in her hand
A flag white as snow

A hero of war
Is that what they see
Just medals and scars
So damn proud of me
And I brought home that flag
Now it gathers dust
But it's a flag that I love
It's the only flag I trust

He said, "Son, have you seen the world?
Well what would you say, if I said that you could?"
