There is a hysterical outcry over a recently released video of United States Marines urinating on corpses of dead Taliban fighters.
Like The New York Times points out this video is somewhat reminiscent of photos of British soldiers released by the U.K. Daily Sun shown urinating on dead Taliban corpses which were later determined to be fake by an English government investigation. Naturally there is an outcry from the politicians on this. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has decried the video as deplorable.
In many ways I hope the video is authenticated since it shows Marines doing something that I think (if given the chance) I would do by showing contempt for an enemy (in this case the Taliban) dedicated to conquer Afghanistan and re-enslave it’s populace under iron-fisted rule of Sharia law. The Marines’s actions in this video are a clear message to send not only to the Taliban but also show that they prefer the values of the United States and what it stands for over the death-affirming values of the Taliban.
One wonders what side the critics of their actions are on?
Piss away boys!
