    So a few dead Afgans Taliban fighters got the golden shower by apprecitive Marines

    I expect if I planted IED in roads, car bombs in markets, shot or stoned females accused of adultery, jailed ***** females for adultery/inciting bad behaviour, whipped a few more and handed over my captives for my woman to flay alive my dead carcas might get a golden shower or two from my grateful and appreciative enemy too.

    Dumb of them to let themselves get videotaped doing it, but I can't say I'm particularly surprised. And I'm not outraged at all.

    Face it: when you send guys off to war and drop them into a kill or be killed environment, you can expect a little black humor out of them. It's called a coping mechanism, and beats the crap out of curling up at night and trying to keep the ghosts at bay....

    And I doubt any of the corpses stood up and complained.

    All's fair in love and war.

    I agree with Troy-Boy, they are fools for getting caught.

    The whinging Taliban should be grateful none of the Marines was suffering from Dehli belly, might have got real messy...

    I'm sure they did worse to our guys, but that was stupid. That film will cost lives. Real stupid and too bad it's out there.

    Its the video that I find disgusting . A brain dead marine decided to record his actions for others to enjoy.

    This YOUTUBE Facebook stuff has gone wild. Those dumb *** Marines didnt learn the Iraq prison torture lesson and must be disciplined.

    I think all their wounds should be stuffed with bacon as discreetly as possible.

    I don't have much issue with the Marines that peed so much as the idiot that video'd it, then let it get out on the web. That's the guy I'd want to see strung up. You don't accidentally post things on the web.

    agreed, the guy who ratted them out is the scumbag in this story if you ask me. One thing I notice about the guys at the club who are vets is they have a serious sense of teamwork, those guys always got your back.

    I'm shocked it made it on the internet.

    I say slap on the wrist for the guys in the video and military prison for the guy with the camera

    Well, there was no need for peeing on dead corpses, regardless of what they represent to you. Those marines' action reveals a rather disturbing trait of their personality.
    Once they end their service in Afghanistan they'll get back home with these war-acquired attitudes and vision of the value of human life. You don't expect them to completely change their personality and moral attitude once they get back to the civil society, don't you?

    US soldiers represent the United States of America when they are abroad. I'm amazed that that the people of the US are at ease with the behaviour of these ambassadors. I'm glad they don't represent my country.

    Soldiers most certainly bring the violence they learned in conflict back home with them.

    You saw it with the Balkan Conflict. A whole generation of hit men, mobsters, pimps and criminals ,whose violence was excused under the guise of HOMELAND SECURITY, continues to cause grief in Europe. .

    Nationalist leaders who send their young off to foreign wars of conquest never warn of this.

    I think that lack of discipline is deplorable. That video is an example of troops out of control. Officers are supposed to be in charge. Breaking the law is not acceptable.

    Would you rather they pee on a stiff, or the great country of Afghanistan? They were showing respect for the land by trying not to get it wet.
