War News Updates: US Marines Likely To Face Court Martial For Urinating On Dead Taliban Fighters

War News Updates: US Marines Likely To Face Court Martial For Urinating On Dead Taliban Fighters.

Stupid.

First, the Marines were stupid for urinating on corpses. Second, they were really stupid for videotaping it.

But the reaction by the media, and the blowback by the military and the government is even worse. Hell, the Taliban aren’t being as hysterical as our own damn Secretary of State.

And finally, a court-martial? Really?

How about Office Hours (Non-Judicial Punishment at the company or battalion level) and some extra duty and maybe dock their pay.

Update: Allen West, Republican Congressman from Florida, and retired Army Lieutenant Colonel, shares his thoughts on the incident.

  1. Allen West has pretty much nailed what should be done here. Field grade Article 15, General Officer reprimand in the 201 and be done with it. The rest is just PC shrill to and fro and is not to be taken seriously.

    USMC, however, will probably give them a Court and that is about as stupid as what the troops did.

  2. stupid act, stupider to video tape it…even stupider to post it…
    That being said I can understand the sentiment behind the act, juvenile for sure but after some of the stuff the other guys have done to our dead that we have recovered this is tame in comparison..I remember working in the CENTCOM CASOPS shop in 2006 or 2007 when that vehicle of 101st guys got overrun and we later found the bodies on a bridge with explosives planted inside of them booby trapped…I know a different war in a different country, but to me all of these Al Queerdo linked groups are the same target…

    That being said Article 15, money, stripes (a big deal in the Corps I am sure) and the like…and get back to the line boys.

  3. Nothing more cruel than a 19 year old American rifleman in a combat zone…and war being what it is, who wouldn’t at times be tempted… Pretty much agree with all other posts…big time bust, get back to business and re-earning stripes. The guy who video’d the event should have his “sack” constricted for a) agreeing to do it and b) for doing it.
