These Marines have probably been through hell so this problem goes beyond these few people. This is what happens when you condition people as killing machines and send them to foreign lands to fight your corporate wars. The guy on the far left has a huge smile and is laughing. These guys are probably just finding ways to cope with the emotions they're going through but it doesn't make it acceptable.


The Marine Corps is promising to investigate a disturbing web video that appears to show Marines in Afghanistan urinating on the bloody corpses of alleged Taliban fighters, officials at the Pentagon said Wednesday.



The 40-second clip, titled “US Marines Peeing on Dead Taliban,” has spread to numerous websites, attracting thousands of views and hundreds of comments — some of them criticizing the men in the video and condemning the Marine Corps at large. A caption on one site, Shock&Awe Entertainment, identifies them as scout snipers assigned to 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines, out of Camp Lejeune, N.C.

Marine officials are working to confirm the men’s unit and identities, said Capt. Kendra Hardesty, a Marine spokeswoman at the Pentagon. Once that information is verified, their unit will assign an officer to conduct the investigation, she said.


I hope these guys get help, there is still hope for them.

For what? Is it the killing part? Or the peeing part you are supposed to be disgusted at?

I certainly am not justifying these actions but war does terrible things to human beings....I can only wonder what the outcome of seeing dead people so often does to one persons mind....throw in a pack mantality and it's a recipe for disaster...I'm sure this happened often during the past world wars especially with the germans after the concentration camps were identified....I'm quite confident a lot of bad things were done to german soldiers and vice versa...we just couldn't film it then

Honestly, both bother me, but the urinating after the murder part is what really got to me.

I don't know what's more idiotic: taking a leak on a dead soldier, or recording it..?


And where's the courage in that one..? Try doing that to a live Taliban operative without back-up and then it might be worth filming...


Either way

it says its a dead taliban fighter. So this guy was shoot, trying to kill our guys and are guys got him first. If it was the other way around and the taliban won this fight, and killed our marines, they would cut off our marines privets and put them in his mouth. So peeing on this dead tali is no big deal to me, wrong, but im not going to go crazy over it.

Fine example we are setting as the "leaders of the free world"....don't mess with us or we will occupy your country and p--s on your bloodied corpses.

Seriously. That is really #ed up.

That does, in absolutely no way what so ever, justify this. Reprehensible. Disgusting. Humiliating. The founders are not rolling over in their graves, they got out of them, puked, and then defected to Canada.

In case you weren't aware of this it's their country and those Marines are invaders, they should have some dignity and respect. Is this a defense mechanism for some of you to justify these actions?

Yeah I can't get why the heck someone would record this...would the person expect that all that viewed it would be like "Hooray"?

That's not really a valid point. The "they would do it so I have no problem with it" attitude is the reason the majority of human beings nowadays are f***ed up.

I thinkit's disgusting that there was a war in the first place, but to take the people you murdered and piss on their corpses? Reminds me of what a chav (or in the US, a pathetic "rebellious" teen) would do.

If they had dignity and respect they would not be shooting at each other in the first place. Its WAR

Disgusting. They deserve the same done to them.

Well they know who they are, and probably we all will know soon, one way or another. BTW soldiers always like to document their deeds in some pictorial way or another. In a Belfast barrack, one wall had a huge mural of a Vauxhall car and dead teenagers. They had previously shot and killed them after running a road check. They were joyriders and not terrorists, didn't stop the mural though.
