Not justifying, but it puts it in the perspective of "Not an issue".

i see what you're trying to say but i still disagree.
because one action, due the moral standards, is considered less bad doesn't make a difference, it's still a bad action.

in my opinion there is no justification for this.
no matter what you throw at me.

but let me add to that, i also believe these wars are unjust.
hence my view/standpoint.



The dead are the dead.


so you wouldn't mind me taking a leak on your granny's grave?



Shed a tear for the living.


i do.
i'm doing my part, believe me




There are bigger things going on, then worrying about stuff like this.


war is a pretty big thing in my book.



I guess spitting on the dead is just as bad.


certainly just as distasteful.

These guys are getting 40 virgins and paradise why would they care what's happening to there bodies? Besides OP if you were'nt so ANTI-MILITARY you could be over there right now to stop things like this from happening. Then you would be making a real difference instead of pissing and moaning on an internet forum.

I wonder how these symbolic ceremonies were acted out in the 'great' civil wars, brother against brother.

Achilles disrespected Hector's corpse for a reason. These soldiers do it because they think it's "funny".

Everyone talks about evolution. I think it's time we talked about de-evolution.

I saw the video and have to say this is typical human male behavior. I don't find it disturbing or entertaining.I will DEFINATELY NOT pass judgement on the Marines in question. I could not tell you whether I would have participated in the urination event or not if I found myself in the same situation as those Marines.

One last thought.... I'm sure that this is not the first episode of urinating on a dead foe in human history. I'm also sure these Marine didn't invent this act. I would venture to say that those dead men had no opinion on being urinated on one way or the other.

Perhaps we should bring these young men and all other Americans in harm way back home so they won't have to worry about whether they are going to be the ones urinating or being urinated on.

I hope that none of you ever come across one of the dozens of jolly videos showing Taliban removing the .s from live Afghans.


this in no way justifies what these soldiers are doing.


I'm not going to try to justify pissing on a dead body; it's not my thing. What I was doing is putting this into context. There are videos out there that are actually worth whinging about, i.e. the above. Though I do realise that criticising the Taliban is a bit radical, them being the good guys and all that.

well when they were fighting the russians that's exactly what they were to the US.

i believe they we're called freedom fighters at the time.

These men might be able to say they were just doing a soldier's job if we had an army of draftees. Fortunately we do not have an army of draftees. Every single man and woman in the service voluntarily walked into the recruiting office and signed on the dotted line. That means they WANT to do this. I pity their families when they come home.

Let's hope then that America, or anyone else for that matter, shows to the youngsters in these foreign countries where the troops are, how they deal with people like these. This is how you perpetuate war. So called 'collateral damage' is hard to pin down as deliberate, even if it is. There is no mistaking the message here.

Sure urinating upon the dead can be seen as extremely rude or disrespectful.

I understand that.

Seriously though? Those guys were probably shooting at them 20 minutes prior to the urinating. Who's to know if those peed on corpse guys didn't blow up one of the unit's men days prior or that morning?

You cannot look at the urinating by itself. The men there are just that. They're men. They have emotions and see stuff you you are lucky to not have seen. You cannot stand high and mighty and declare what proper behavior is while they get shot at and you post on ATS.

Just saying. You have to earn the right to declare what's acceptable in that situation. Unless you're one of those guys, you cannot say anything. Keep it to yourself.


Besides.............aren't there actual concerns to become angry about? I mean, other than a few corpses with urine on em? Really?

I know you meant homosapiens right?

Surely you did...as sexual preference would have nothing to do with this!

There is a reason why "our guys" are getting hit with IED's.

You truly are missing the message here.

But then again a closed mind cannot be reasoned with.

To lose respect for your enemy makes your victory cheap and meaningless.
To lose respect for your enemy makes your honor inexistent.

When war is over and soldiers return home, the stories they tell will hide these sort of acts. They hide in shame. If they boast of it, it will not be in glory of the trial and hardship of the battle. The skill and strength needed to overcome their enemy. They will snicker like children over an easy victory, like a sneak thief taking from a child or an elderly person who cannot defend themselves and laughing as he walks away.

Remember your honor. Keep true our values. Defend our nation.
Do not make us new enemies by your disgrace. Do not deface our legacy and our place in history. Do not endanger our nation by inviting retaliation.

These soldiers have shamed all my countries military. These people have shamed all my nation. These men have made all our men look like a cowards. They are not my heroes. They are not my countrymen.

"In War: Resolution. In Defeat: Defiance. In Victory: Magnanimity. In Peace: Goodwill."
- Winston Churchill

MAGNANIMITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquility and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
