    In the video US marines are seen to be urinating on dead taliban fighters.

    I think it is disgusting they way they are treating dead bodies, the dead are still someone's brothers, sons and dads. I hope the marines are dealt with properly and get done for misconduct. :mad:

    Their family will probably be more upset about them getting shot though.

    By taking a leak on the bodies it is making the US soldiers just as bad if not worse than the guys they say are "evil". I understand that you have to kill over there but you are not suppose to enjoy killing and humiliate the dead bodies.

    Seems odd that all 4 had to go simultaneosly

    Can't understand that people still do stuff like this on video

    can they not see a flaw in their plans?

    Like the taliban treat dead people with respect?

    Oh that's right, the taliban get their kicks filming civilians getting their throats slit.

    Pearl was beheaded by the taliban. On May 16 his severed head and decomposed body were found cut into ten pieces, and buried—along with the jacket of a tracksuit Pearl was wearing when photographed by his kidnappers—in a shallow grave.

    I think what the US marine did is sick and ethically repugnant. But what kind of warped ethical standpoint are you adapting in suggesting it's as bad as blowing up an innocent civilian?

    I never said it was the same thing but just because they act like animals dont mean that the Americans have to as well. The lads were already dead there was no reason to pee on the bodies.

    Plus do you think the allied forces have not hit innocent farmers but the topic is about the Marines desecrating the dead bodies its not about what the taliban have done before.

    So it's not "ok" to p1ss on dead people?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 5,059 ✭✭✭Sindri


    Stick their noses in it.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,679 ✭✭✭hidinginthebush


    So they can kill them, but they can't piss on them, ok, got it!


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,193 ✭✭✭✭MrStuffins


    Lads, it's war.

    But oh no, a bit of piss! What's the world coming to?!?!?!

    A bit of perspective here!

    Read back a few posts. You said they were as bad or worse as people who blow up innocent civilians. why? for having peed on a dead body.

    Well I think the point is what this suggests. You know, Afghan-American relations and all that, the role of the American army, common decency, some dignity and the like.

    Its war but I would like to see the Americans show a bit of respect for there enemies.

    In your opinion does anything go while at war?

    Exactly all this video is going to do is drive future insurgents to join up and plan more attacks on the west. I think the Americans should be trying to get good relations with the afghan people, not pissing on there relatives ffs :rolleyes:

    Nope. Even when talking about an organisation at which one would have thought there'd be no problem in criticising, you can't get it right.

    Common decence? Dignity?

    Do you have any idea what goes on over there? Can you imagine the kinds of things that are happening?

    Can you imagine some 18 year old kid going over there, he's scared as sh*t, he's being shot at all day, some Talaban blow up 3 of his buddies with an IED, another of his buddies is captured and they chop him up into little bits! These people have been butchering children and then in the line of duty they kill a couple of them........... you think they should give them a hero's funeral?

    I'm not saying it's right, i'm just saying have a bit of perspective. It's war. They're there to kill each other!

    I don't know what I said that you actually addressed in your posts rather you tried to validate that foolish statement.

    Should I not expect/demand more from the American Army?

    The 18 year old choose to sign up and go to war so no sympathy, the afghan people have no choice it is there home.

    By the way I am not anti American troops I have all the time in the world normally for the soldiers I just found this incident didnt really sit right with me, it is putting progress in Afghanistan back when they should be doing the opposite.

    So, you have no sympathy for an American soldier, but you have sympathy for a Taliban soldier? Is that what you're saying?

    Do you know anything about the Taliban?

    You didn't actually, you tried to validate a ridiculous statement that was validating a ridiculous statement that condoned pissing on the bodies of dead men.

    Well done.

    I never condoned anything.

    What I DID say is you need to have a bit of perspective (it's in a post on the first page there).

    I gave you a wildly general scenario where it might be possible that "common decency" might not be the first thing on there lads' minds.

    Again, i'm sorry it went over your head!
