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.
a-men judson! there is an agenda at work here. obama does not want no interference with his new buddies the taliban.
You are so right !
They "Only" send in the MARINES after the "Diplomatic Corps has failed" !
Slap their wrist for getting caught and let them do their job!
A major point. Why do we ask the military to be involved in Nation building? What is our purpose in Nation building, bankruptcy?
Tight on target.
Sometimes one may respect an enemy's courage and honor the enemy dead in the aftermath of a serious but well-fought battle...but the Taliban do not merit such respect...they're sly and sneaky and generally do not choose to stand and fight...and the Taliban visit horrors upon the innocents who home areas they control or occupy. Most of the Taliban are Pashtuns, but even other Pashtuns often don't much appreciate the extremes of terror, intimidation and religious zealotry the Taliban inflict on them...and the other tribes in Afghanistan want nothing to do with the radical Islam the Taliban bring with them.
Taliban fighters generally aren't brave or disciplined when they do fight...they're foolish with their lives...they are a danger to all around them and they do not earn respect for their actions...I've seen the aftermath of Taliban activity in several Afghan villages...so for me it's easy to understand why the Marines would disrespect the remains of those cowardly and idiotic vermin.
Simply urinating on those creatures is nothing compared to what the Taliban do their enemies' corpses...the Left is all bent out of shape about this incident but for most Americans this doesn't matter at all...I suspect that nothing career-ending will happen to any of those Marines...a tempest in a teapot...and if any of them ever come to my town I know they'd be received as genuine American heroes.
If these Marines are disciplined, there will be hell to pay by the Obama administration. The public needs to be reminded what Taliban, and their ilk do to captured, and killed US troops. Maybe we need to start mutilating and beheading the enemy, instead of just pissing on them. This will not pass!
As an Army Vietnam Veteran I praise these brave Marine Hero's for fighting for our freedom. Are we going to sit back and allow our socialist liberal PC bureaucrats to destroy the lives of these brave American Hero's. It's time we stand up and put a stop to this communist attempt to destroy America. I'm tired of this Crap, it's time we stop wasting Americas most valuable resource (our young fighting men and women) on these communist pigs occupying the White House and Congress and the bureaucrats trying to take over our Country. God bless our Marines and God help these corrupt politicians for they will get their comeuppance and we will get our revenge.
Thanks to James Reagan WELL SAID WAKE UP AMERICA.
Politicians get their comeuppance? How.? vote them out, they get a pension for their years of theivery and we still pay for it. They get their kickback from their pork projects that go to their buddies, there is no justice anymore and our soldiers know it. That is why they are fighting to get some measure of justice.
Well said. Screw the liberals, maybe they should be brought up on charges. How about their "pissing" on my rights as a conservative and believer in the Constitution.
