Does anyone know where to find the original? All I've seen are pixelated stills, from which I can hardly come to any conclusion. (talk)08:38, 14 January 2012


Pissing on dead guys who just tried to kill you? Understandable. Putting it up on youtube afterwards? Stupid. (talk)20:50, 16 January 2012

That they would not afford you the same luxury...

Is the worst argument that can be made to jettison your own moral obligations. (talk)09:38, 16 January 2012

The Taliban are calling this inhumane? The Taliban... Don't remember them condemning a video where one of the American soldiers got his head sawed off with a knife on video a few years back. That's ok though - THIS is the inhumane action... urinating on corpses. These marines - if this actually happened - should be reprimanded for their behavior, because it was inappropriate. Anything severe though? Come back when you have a video of an American soldier sawing off the head of a helpless prisoner... then those claims of outrageous behavior will hold some water.
