George Patton was caught urinating into the Rhine River in 1945. People cheered Patton for killing the enemy and visiting hell upon them. Now, four Marine snipers are going to be criminally charged for urinating on dead Taliban terrorists.
From Fox News:
The four Marines seen in a video that purports to show them urinating on dead bodies in Afghanistan have been identified and will face charges soon, a senior military official told Fox News.
The Marines are from the 3rd battalion, 2nd Marine Expeditionary Force out of Camp Lejeune, N.C. A fifth individual, the camera operator, apparently has not been identified.
Meanwhile, the Marine Corps has appointed a three-star general to decide what disciplinary action to take against the four Marine snipers.
Lt. Gen. Thomas Waldhauser will name another officer to lead an internal Marine Corps investigation. That investigation will be in addition to a criminal probe already under way by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. Waldhauser, who is commander of Marine Corps Forces Central Command, will determine how to proceed once both investigations are completed.
NCIS Communications Director Maryann Cummings also said her department's probe is still "in its very early stages."
This is what happens when we have liberals in charge. What are they going to do next, require sensitivity training for snipers when they kill someone?
When you absolutely, positively need to destroy the enemy, you send in the Marine Corps. The purpose of the Marine Corps is to go to some very bad places and deal with very bad people.
Marine Corps snipers are a very special type of Marine. While Marines will often engage in small unit combat, snipers by their nature are asked to do something very specific. They reach out and deliberately kill individual targets. Regular Marines in combat may or may not know if they killed someone and sometimes if they do, it is in hand to hand combat.
Snipers reach out at a long distance and kill someone. They do not give the other guy a fighting chance. Their job is to reach out and destroy someone.
These Marines were almost certainly in combat. They saw the horrors of war and saw what the enemy did to non-combatants and what they did to other Marines. It is a safe bet they all lost friends, not to hand to hand combat but to IED’s and other booby traps.
What liberals do not understand is the purpose of the military is to go and kill the enemy. It is not to do public relations or nation building. You designate the enemy and you send the military in to destroy that enemy.
When they are done, sometimes the Marines need to blow off some steam. We ask them to do something that we do not ask most Americans to do.
These Marines peed on the corpses of dead Taliban. The Taliban are war criminals. They torture and kill. They will not stand on the battlefield in uniform and engage the military. They hide behind civilians.
Those Marines were asked to go and serve their country and kill our enemies. They did.
Give them a medal and send them back to work.
"Greater Love Hath No Man Than This that A Man would Lay Down His Life for His Friends".... JESUS.
Only 1% serve in combat and we have 1% Elitists trying to tell them how to do it or how to behave when they send them to war. as they continue to violate our rights here at home in America!!!
Those who have never seen combat could never understand...Especially those communist liberals we have in power today who would run and hide if asked to serve if needed by their country. I say... Piss on them!
We train teenagers to kill and maim the enemy then we put them somewhere to do it. Problem is we never tell them how that killing and maiming is going to affect them. They are never told how much hate rises within them when they see what the enemy has done. They are never told how to deal with the feelings they've never had before. They are not told how to deal with a friend killed before their eyes. Been there, done that. I'm 100% disabled due to PTSD.
What the hell do the powers that be think is going to happen when the kid reaches his limit but remains civilized and releases the emotion. The marines didn't hack up the bodies, disembowl them nor burn them. They peed on them. Jeeze, what a crime! It's okay to target an individual and blow his brains out but criminal to pee on his dead body. Somebody needs to get some priorities in line.
The military has failed these young warriors by not emotionally training them to the fullest . When I was in basic training, advanced individual traing and Jungle Warfare School I was never told I couldn't pee on a dead enemy. Is it any different in today's military? Tell them not to do it again and leave them the hell alone. Quit trying to give comfort to the enemy for that is treason.
I heard a Forensic Psychologist at the Univerity of Texas say that "UNTIL A BOY REACHES THE AGE OF 25 HIS BRAIN IS NOT FULLY DEVELOPED". SO, MAYBE WE WILL ONLY RECRUIT MEN 25 YEARS AND ABOV AND HAVE A MUCH MORE "MATURE (MENTALLY, PHYSICALLY & EMOTIONALLY AND CAN AVOID OF ALLOT OF CONFLICT WITH THE MILITARY FIGHTING MAN) TROOPER".
Douglas thinks for your service and well said.
We have these left wing rioters taking a crap on a police car and everyone thinks thats funny, but let a couple of Marines piss on the dead bodies of muslin terrorists and the world goes to hell. How different this would have been if these bodies were christians.Muslims behead our guys, hang them from bridges, drag them naked through the streets and the muslim world cheers. Our christian marines piss on a couple of dead bodies and the whole world falls to their knees and begs forgiveness. I hope to hell our generals, just once ,will stand up for our men.
Our President is the one to "stand up"....he likes being the Commander in Chief....then tell them "as long as we are Afganistan....we will do our best to have our "troops" to operate in a "Military manner...if he will assure us the same".
Next time we wikll use airstikes and tere will be no "human element to the exercise.
I couldn't agree more...well said Robert!
