Know who doesn't care that dead people are being pissed on? The dead people.

"Know who doesn't care that dead people are being pissed on? The dead people."

Right. Not sure what the Vegas odds-makers would put it at, but I'm willing to wager at least one of the 72 virgins will be involved in some type of golden shower activity with the soldier. Either way, someone's getting pissed on after he dies.

This just goes to prove my point. There are way too many video cameras in the world these days. You just can't piss on a dead guy like you used to.

But, really, what do you expect leadership to say here? "Pissing on the enemy is fine. We recommend soldiers have two beers before every mission just so they have enough in the bladder for it." Of course they're going to condemn it to the media.

"But, really, what do you expect leadership to say here?"

Not much. Maybe act a little disappointed, but then put it in context:

"Yes, it is unfortunate. But did I mention we were trying to kill them? That was intentional. We were actually trying to blow them into small pieces, but they were too close to civilians -- so we just put a lot of bullets in them instead. And yeah, I guess at that point they ended up getting a little bit peed-on. Just before they were teabagged with pig testicles. Luckily the camera stopped recording before that. Can't be too careful. Next question. You in the third row."

Not that I really think this is the Worst Scandal Ever, but if the tables were turned, and video turned up showing Taliban fighters whizzing on the corpse of a US Marine, I would imagine that some segments of the US political spectrum would be calling for nuclear strikes on the entire region...

Aren't they already?

I don't think our leaders can even put it in context. In cases like this, all we've got going for us is the moral high ground and a sense of planetary civic duty. If we cop to being killers who pee on the other guys, then what keeps us in the white hats? Reality has to take a back seat to marketing here. Yes, it's ridiculous, but our people have to feel like we're the good guys.

Well, then immediately we'd have a resurfacing of those videos of not-so-long-ago where heads were sawn off and soldiers' naked bodies drawn and quartered about the village -- in which case the outrage over urination would be put into its proper context.

@Assman

Yep, you're right of course. It was a pipe dream of mine that for just one moment, reality could reign. Instead, we have to go back and hold our breath while our nation becomes 100% socialist and has to combat a bullying epidemic while trying to save the planet from global warming climate changey type shit.

Pissing on corpses is not cool. I don't care how you want to spin it. It just ain't.

Mr. Kruger

@pennypacker

yes it is, if they were the dudes trying to blow holes in your face with ak's. i see it as a courtesy.

Assman

Pissing on corpses is not cool.

No, and I wish they hadn't taped it. But, if we're at war with these guys, I'd rather have the crazy killers who like to piss on their enemies on my team.

Fuck all that. I'm glad it was on video. I think it should be aired 24X7 for Afghani eyes only. These pussy whipped dicks in Washington, especially the cunt and chief need to man the fuck up and start telling these asswipes that we're in Afghanistan to kick ass until they get their shit together. General Black Jack Pershing had it right - and yes I wish the video WAS running when the dead assholes were tea bagged with pig balls.

Pissing on the dead is nothing new. Everyone needs to stop providing the evidence of the dumb shit they do. Have a memory in your head for God's sake. Not everything needs to be so fucking tangible.
