Hot ‘Extremely Graphic’ Pixxx of U.S. Soldiers Murdering Afghan People

by Ken Layne

Be all that you can be ....Wow, we are not even going to click through these, because we kind of remember the last several batches of “extremely graphic” pictures of U.S. troops and U.S. military contractors murdering and torturing Muslims in the various countries where America continues to murder and torture people, for Freedom. In fact, we’re going to cover our eyes with a couple of those yellow “I support the troops” car magnets we keep in the garbage, just in case. But if you need some help understanding/remembering why the American Empire is Evil, then please do enjoy (?) these photos of brainwashed meatheads smiling and posing with the corpses of the people they’ve murdered, thanks to your taxpayer dollars.

Of course, not all American troops wantonly murder and torture and rape people all over the world! Most troops simply fuck off and bide their time, hoping to make it home alive and relatively intact. And that is honorable, especially considering the alternative in 21st Century America for most young American men, which is “unemployment.”

But for every grinning little murderer in fatigues pictured leering over a bloodied, disfigured corpse, there seems to be a couple of hundred simpatico illiterates filling up the comments pages at Rolling Stone, for the the sin of publishing these pictures that military sadists have been passing around themselves in the idiotic belief that such gruesome evidence of American Military Evil wouldn’t find a wider audience:

IT’S A SHAME OUR COWARD POLITICIANS WON’T TAKE THE LEASH OFF OF OUR GUYS AND LET THEM REALLY GET THE JOB DONE OVER THERE INSTEAD OF THE MICKEY MOUSE BS THEY HAVE TO ENDURE. WHY DON’T WE SHOW THE PICS OF AMERICAN SOLDIERS AND CIVILIANS THAT WHERE MURDERED AND ARE STILL BEING MURDERED BY THE UNGRATEFUL PRIM EVIL SAVAGES. I SAY, “LOOSE THE DOGS OF WAR” AND LETS GET OUR PRECIOUS BOYS AND GIRLS HOME ALREADY.

Thank You for cancelling my subscription! People who expect warriors to act like Sunday School Teachers need to grab a gun and stand the front line themselves instead of making criminals out of our soldiers. Rolling Stone is an out-of-touch elitist music magazine populated by writers who have never done a single thing for anyone other than their own bloated bellies and dr*g-infested hangers-on. As they sit in the million-dollar offices they attack our soldiers making less than minimum wage. The true l*w-life’s and sc*m-of-the earth persons reside in the offices of RS, not our soldiers’ barracks! In the end, our soldiers give their lives for something bigger than themselves…unfortunately so do the RS writer’s it just so happens that a pile of dog fecOs has greater worth than the whole staff of this magazine!

Yeah, this is ALMOST as horrifying as 3 month old babies having their throats slashed by Palestinians. Get your priorities straight people. It’s called war for a reason.

Uhh, Palestinians?

Haha and then this one guy is all, Oh yeah, well FUCK soldiers, that’s what! He is totally going to be beaten up by his older brother, if his older brother makes it home from Afghanistan:

F&ck soldiers. All of them. All I hear them do is b11tch and whine, and tell me, “Support your troops” and “Thank me for your freedom”. Please. These men are propped up in society to look brave and courageous, when in real life, they are cowards and losers. It’s easy to go off to war to die when you suck at life. You couldn’t get a REAL job or a REAL education, so you take the easy route and join the military. You CHOSE to fight for NOTHING, and now you ret@rds have the nerve to ask ME to thank you for MY FREEDOM? Please. The U.S. government is more of a threat to U.S. citizens than any Afghan or Iraqi. Everyone here needs to remember that when our government decides they don’t want us having freedom anymore, it will be THESE SAME soldiers who will be rounding US up and placing us in concentration camps. So, go fight your useless, pointless wars… Go feel special, and courageous… Go kill people for no reason if it makes you feel “brave” or “strong”. But don’t you DARE ask me to “thank” you for sh!!t. You’re all worthless bullet sponges as far as I’m concerned. You couldn’t do anything useful in American society, so we sent you to die in the desert. Get it over with already, losers. Your flag-draped casket and sanctimonious, crying “military family” won’t mean anything when you’re headed to HE11. The sooner the better. I spit on the U.S. military. Disappear.

Anyway, enjoy the photos (or don’t, really). Just takes some dr*gs instead. [Rolling Stone]

Oh, so this spelling not some hip thing the kidz are doing now? Dagnabbit, I was sooo going to, like, mimic it.

CthuNHu March 28, 2011 at 8:00 pm

I have always found the spelling of the (greatly overused) expletive "fuck" with two k's to be degraded, odious and repellent, a disgusting and shameful smear upon the glorious all-embracing all-overthrowing act embodied in the true meaning of the word, a dirty eros-fearing curse that serves only to bring shame upon the curser.

For goodness' sakes, people, if you have something to say that requires rhetorical — usually adjectival — amplification, and you're insufficiently creative to take an approach that doesn't rely heavily on the blunt instrument of the shock value of moldy Anglo-Saxon cuss words that make up a large part of the conversation of boys on the cusp of puberty, at least have the pride and self-respect to utilize their correct spelling. Fuckwits.

emmelemm March 28, 2011 at 3:56 pm

I think… I hate to say this… I think they're sentient enough to realize that they have to misspell "Fuck" in order to get it past the automated comment censors at Rolling Stone.

Or they could just be mouth-breathing idiots. Either or.

SexySmurf March 28, 2011 at 4:11 pm

The magazine that employed Hunter S. Thompson and Matt Taibbi won't let commenters use the word fuck?

I find that incredibly hard to believe. When we finally moved to the States my mum wouldn't let me read RS because they were such potty-mouths.

They wouldn't want anyone's precious sensibilities to be hurt by such offensive words. Ya know, after they finish looking through the photos.

What the fuck does "Support the troops" mean anyway? Do they mean like hold their b*lls like a jock strap? I'm not down with that. Fuck Fuck Fuck. We are all so fucked. Just wait till the ones that slipped through make it back to 'Murica and decide to take their shit out on us.Good times indeed.

jus_wonderin March 28, 2011 at 4:01 pm

I know this is rethorical but I think "Support the Troops" is the camoflague version of "You hate America if you don't think like me".

NorthStarSpanx March 28, 2011 at 4:46 pm

Are we supposed to be afraid of the ones who come back? The ones that couldn't even make it past recruitment, like Jared Lee Loughner, are bad enough thank you.

He just turned 17, and he probably likes to "yankee" a lot. Once his sparse pubes fill in and his mom let's him get his learner's permit, he can get someone else to "yankee" it for him.

What does "loose the dogs of war" mean? When people misspell lose they often spell "loose" so yes, I'm totally on board with losing the dogs of war.

His use of "loose the dogs of war" is actually correct. PUTTING IT IN ALL CAPS IS WHAT MAKES IT C*MEDY.

It's sort of hard to understand without the "let".

blinky_twinkie March 28, 2011 at 4:54 pm

Yeah, I think it's "Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war." Or something. Yawn. I was just commending him on using "loose" (which means close to the same thing as "let slip") as opposed to the more Tea-bagger-friendly "lose."

Lots of people are moral chameleons. At home, they go to bible studies with everyone else, at war they rape, rob and murder with everyone else. :-( Discipline is supposed to prevent this, but most US junior officers are just frat boys a couple years later. They aren't disciplined, either.

"Haji" is a term of derision when applied to Afghanis by US personnel. "Sean B Usmc" is at the forefront of the operation to win hearts and minds.

catholic4condom March 29, 2011 at 1:21 am

Actually Haji means someone who has made the pilgrimage to Mecca, which would make it a term of honor. American service personnel use it because it was the name of the brown-skinned kid who wore a turban on "Johnny Quest" That would be like a foreign occupying force coming here and referring to Americans as "heroes" because they know that's a name of a sandwich.

BarackMyWorld March 28, 2011 at 4:01 pm

People get really upset when you show them the real consequences of war, it seems.

Just like how everyone wants government cuts except for the program that helps them, or hate negative campaigning but believe every attack ad they see.

tessiee March 28, 2011 at 10:33 pm

"People get really upset when you show them the real consequences of war, it seems."

Yeah, as per the comment about "making this kind of thing seem wrong".

arihaya March 28, 2011 at 4:02 pm

the ironic part is,, the Afghans (Pasthuns majority) are Indo-Europeans people, which linguistically and arguably also genetically closely related to White Americans,, including those dumb wingnuts

yet they keep taunting these victims as "Palestinians" (which are Semitic peoples)

mavenmaven March 28, 2011 at 4:10 pm

They would be happy to kill Americans as well if "Moslem" (or Sikh for that matter, as we see every year). Just watch those videos from Kentucky around the building of that mosque.

donner_froh March 28, 2011 at 5:52 pm

And the majority of the Taliban are from that closely related to white Americans Pashtun majority.

zhubajie March 28, 2011 at 8:11 pm

Palestinians are almost certainly descended from Israelites, too, not Philistines, as many fundie preachers like to say.

freddymcmurray March 28, 2011 at 4:03 pm

Just as I predicted last week. The money shot from the article:

"He grew up not far from Sarah Palin in Wasilla, Alaska; his sister hung out with Bristol, and Morlock played hockey against Track."

So maybe Bristol *does* have photos in those fat rolls somewhere.

I think it's pretty obvious who'd winning this war. Random atrocities are usually a good way to LOSE a war.

catholic4condom March 29, 2011 at 1:32 am

We can win the war if we get some contractors to build a bunch of hermetically sealed showers and our troops march the entire population into them and spray Zyklon B. If we kill all of them then we will kill every terrorist among them. Then we pack up and move on to the next terrorist country. By this summer the world will have 7 billion people. That means 6.6 billion non-americans. So if we can get our genocide quotas up we can eliminate the threat of foreign terrorism, illegal immigration, legal immigration, snooty french people etc. by the end of this decade. What do I know I'm just a fatty that was turned down by the army.

I live in Columbus, Georgia. William Calley works in a jewelry store down the street from one of the many bars I frequent. After they released Calley from the stockade he married the daughter of a local well-to-do muckity muck. The lucky gal's father was a big fan of Calley's My Lai exploits and set him up with the jewelry store. Every time I see that man I make eye contact and spit on the ground, so at least he knows there is at least one local yokel who knows what a pig fucking shit whore he is. /rant

In that case he should have used the original Klingon.

Hard not to agree w/commenter and extremely sensitive elider Ed H____:

Rolling Stone is an out-of-touch elitist music magazine populated by writers who have never done a single thing for anyone other than their own bloated bellies and dr*g-infested hangers-on… The true l*w-life’s and sc*m-of-the earth persons reside in the offices of RS, not our soldiers’ barracks!

NorthStarSpanx March 28, 2011 at 4:53 pm

And Ed H_____ is out there with his servant's heart perpetrating love and charity for others and everyone but himself even on his worst day. Sure.

Low-lifes and scum are common everywhere. War criminals are usually in the barracks, the officer's quarters, and the supreme leader's palace.

After looking at some of those photographs I have to say sometimes I'm ashamed to be a human being

I totally understand. However as a recently transplanted Martian I must say I did not pick this neighborhood. I was tricked. I had forgotten our coins say "IN BLARF WE TRUST" on *both* sides.

But, I totally understand.

The photos are… pretty bad. And I say this as a huge horror movie buff with a decent sense of detachment.

This is almost as bad as an NPR exec calling people names. Not bad enough to defund the army, but still.

At least these soldiers had the decency not to call Teabaggers racists or try to help pregnant prostitutes.

Steverino247 March 28, 2011 at 4:21 pm

The RS captions make very clear that the photos violate Army standards and also make clear the ambiguity of some of the subjects shown, as in "it's not clear who killed this guy." Anybody posting such comments in response should be forbidden to carry firearms under any circumstances. RS was very fair in how they handled the photos (and this from a person who has personally experienced RS being unfair).

The brigade commander (Col. Harry Tunnell) is ultimately responsible for all of this. "The commander is responsible for all his men do and fail to do" has been pounded into the heads of everyone over the rank of Sergeant at every leadership class ever held by the Army. The brigade commander failed to instruct his troops in the Law of Land Warfare and to ensure they were properly supervised. The list of his failures is very, very long. Man, I'd love to be the guy writing that asshole's letter of reprimand, but sadly, somebody else gets to do that. (Somebody BETTER do that!)

For more detail about how badly an officer can fuck things up, see Jacob H. Smith here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacob_H._Smith

Thank you for pointing all that out. Good information to keep in mind.

Steverino247 March 28, 2011 at 6:44 pm

You're welcome. The Army apparently had their doubts about this guy as he made speeches in professional settings advocating a "take the gloves off" approach to Afghanistan. The guy was seriously wounded in Iraq during a deployment there and fought his way back to command. That's commendable, but the Army should have been able to figure out that he was carrying too much anger to command troops in combat again, especially in a sensitive area like Afghanistan. Had they put him in training commands or on a staff/logistical career path, they would have honored his service and successful efforts to recover, gotten the benefits of his experience and personal example and allowed him to retire at Colonel like he should have. Instead, we sent a seething, angry man back to war in command of a very deadly organization.

Guessing RS' readership contains, for every reader of (say) Matt Taibbi, about 1000 fans of Nickelback and Godsmack. Hence the palpable sense of betrayal.

D'you guys (i.e., Nickelback fans) know that the first ever cover of Rolling Stone, over 40 years ago, featured John Lennon in the antiwar black comedy How I Won The War? Yeah, didn't think so.

But did the Palestinians then pour vodka into each others' mouths off the dead babies' butts? Cause I'm scared to clicky the linkies, but I'm guessing there's some good old vodka-drenched frat boy times with the dead people on behalf of the US soldiers…

How much do you want to bet that Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld et al have albums of photos like these for their personal enjoyment?
