Hillary Clinton and Leon Penetta were all over themselves apologizing for a video that was posted of four Marines urinating on three dead Taliban bodies. The Pentagon is mad.
KABUL, Afghanistan — A video showing four United States Marines urinating on three dead Taliban fighters provoked anger and condemnation on Thursday in Afghanistan and around the world, raising fears in Washington that the images could incite anti-American sentiment at a particularly delicate moment in the decade-old Afghan war.
(You’re kidding me right? Like there IS no anti-American sentiment now?)
Mr. Karzai said that he was deeply disturbed and that he had asked the Americans to punish the perpetrators severely.
“This act by American soldiers is simply inhuman and condemnable in the strongest possible terms,” he said. The actions of the Marines in the video could amount to a violation of the Geneva Conventions.”
I won’t say much about this, but let me get this straight: It’s not the fact that these men are DEAD that is the problem, it’s the fact that these Marines, whom as far as we know, might have lost buddies to these Taliban dead guys: decided to show their dissatisfaction to their corpses.
While most people find this going a bit too far, on the other hand, if our government prosecutes them as war criminals, THEY should be put on trial, because THEY sent them over there, in a war, to KILL the Taliban in the first place. In fact: we trained the Taliban in the first place. And now, they are bringing our soldiers home in defeat, in what is certainly not any kind of victory. I’m sure, they are the Taliban’s biggest laughing-stock.
If anyone should be mad, it should be the American citizen for just how badly the whole war was conducted—Not to mention how much it cost us– not the lame joke of a few soldiers.
Has Hillary forgotten all those people who were KILLED on 9/11? You can’t even find their corpses. At least those Marines left the Taliban bodies to bury. We just dump our bits and pieces of blown up soldiers in some empty landfill in Virginia.
WAR is hell, and unfortunately, our liberal elites have NO idea what’s it’s like to spend day after day getting shot at, and then finding out, all your fighting has been for nothing because the enemy is being forgiven and helped back into the country with the blessings of the Commander-In-Chief, who goes by the common name of our enemy: Barack Hussain Obama.
Many people feel that the U.S. exit from the battlefield is no different from when the Russians left Afghanistan after ten years. There was no American victory there. The Taliban considers that they have beaten the Americans. That HAS to be hard on our brave soldiers.
Some men in war…just snap. At least they didn’t do what the Taliban do to their enemies: cut off their heads, and desecrate their privates. Right. The Taliban honors the Geneva Convention.
What a joke.
I’m stopping here because this is so uncalled for: Hillary should have said today: “War is hell, for everyone.” And walked off.
Hillary would be stupid to make a big thing about this: the American people will stand behind their Marines. It won’t play well in an election.
My friend Mona, after seeing the video…expressed it well:
Sorry, but when our troops see the filth and horrendous pain that those people inflict on their own, and our people and country what those soldiers did was mild to what I am sure most would cheer them on to do. How can our men feel anything but that they are actually not even worth wasting their piss on, and I feel for those men. Who could blame them for how they felt and the one who took and posted this should be pissed on and hung as far as I am concerned as who ever put those men in harm’s way: what fools do, and I do not mean those Marines either!
