U.S. Soldiers Changing Hearts & Minds By Urinating On Dead Muslims

by Ken Layne

Everybody supporting the troops a lot? Here they are “finishing the job,” with the primary job being “killing Muslims everywhere” and the finish being “ritually urinating on the bloodied bodies.” Afghanistan, the war that keeps on giving!

These soldiers are apparently part of a Marine assassination/sniper unit, but it’s okay because they are “a small group of U.S. individuals.” Look, it’s only four Marines in uniform pissing on the corpses of the people they just killed. Simmer down! It’s not like there are five U.S. Marines pictured in this particular video doing what is surely a normal, everyday American thing of urinating on dead victims of our Imperial Wars.

Let’s see, any other important excuses from the U.S. occupation army in Kabul? Yes, this: The Marines in the video “apparently are no longer serving in Afghanistan.”

So, hooray! They’re probably back in the United States shooting national park rangers and murder-suiciding their entire families — just normal American stuff, for freedom.

The next terrorism attack is going to be spectacular, isn’t it? Might want to avoid cities or towns or being American for the next couple of decades. [CNN/Guardian]

I'm surprised this wasn't announced on WikiLeaks Leaks.

Right. Every one of those guys is a total whiz.

Better give them plenty of fluids beforehand because there are a lot~ Wait. Oh shit. My bad…

So should we all claim to be Canadian next time we travel overseas again?

neiltheblaze January 12, 2012 at 11:48 am

I wear a Canadian flag pin and say "eh" a lot. Throws 'em off the scent.

GregComlish January 12, 2012 at 12:48 pm

I just say things like:

"Your typical American is an obese, gullible imbecile. They are venomous people with the same ethics as their corporate overlords with whom they actively collaborate. Their bigotry is easily manipulated by corporate media. They don't give two shits about their own lives being thrown in the gutter as long as they get their chance to step on somebody even farther below them. They uphold sadistic beauty standards, even though they collectively are the most physically repulsive people on earth. They hate themselves for being ugly, stupid, shallow failures, but embrace religious fundamentalism to externalize that hatred onto everybody else. They are cowards who listen to right-wing radio so they can vicariously bully all the people they are too chickenshit to confront in person. It is a nation of Sarah Palins. So fuck them. They can take their patriotism and shove it up their huge asses."

Ken Layne January 12, 2012 at 1:34 pm

I live close to the Border so I think I will head over and pick up a maple leaf flag shirt and Toronto Maple Leafs jersey.

You don't already? Are you completely nuts?

Redhead January 12, 2012 at 1:38 pm

last time I was overseas, everyone I encountered just assumed I was English or Irish because I didn't demand that everyone else speak English, didn't walk around with a fanny pack and socks with sandals, and didn't eat at McDonald's or Pizza Hut.

PalinzADummy January 13, 2012 at 12:17 am

Hey, you leave my fucking Birks 'n Thorlos outa this.

foog January 12, 2012 at 3:20 pm

On behalf of the rest of Upper Canuckistan, I'd like to thank these upstanding young soldiers for boosting our good name. It was looking dicey for a while, what with a conservative government, shitty foreign policy, shittier environmental policy, dirty oil pipelines, etc. Hell, we even lost our seat on the UN Security Council. But all things being relative, this can only make us look good. Shame it makes me feel worse about being human though.

comrad_darkness January 12, 2012 at 3:43 pm

If that works it's only because memories are too short to recall the Somalia Affair http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Somalia_Affair

I honestly had no idea Canadians could do such a thing.

Good grief!

Only liberal homo dhimmis who hate America travel overseas. What's wrong with our own vacation spots?!?

mayor_quimby January 12, 2012 at 9:34 pm

A simple "Everyting Irie, mon!" works for me. YMMV

PalinzADummy January 13, 2012 at 12:20 am

Well, you probably look like someone who could get away with saying that. Me, not so much.

PsycWench January 12, 2012 at 11:28 am

No snark. That's just awful.

Fukui_sanYesOta January 12, 2012 at 11:29 am

They hate us for our freedoms. It's true, I heard a president say it.

PalinzADummy January 13, 2012 at 12:21 am

Especially our freely urinating upon the corpses of their countrymen. That one really doesn't seem to garner much approval from that lot.

OkieDokieDog January 12, 2012 at 11:30 am

They're just teaching those dead brown guys: Don't tess with Mexas, or we'll piss on you.

The next excuse will be that they were playing golden showers.

You cannot send people to a hellish war and expect them not to go crazy. If they come out sane, that's the miracle.

hagajim January 12, 2012 at 11:54 am

Prolly not – but you can expect them to act like humans, not assholes (or at least you should).

HELisforHEL January 12, 2012 at 12:40 pm

Somewhere along the line, the thin frayed cord between duty and humanity was snapped. Sadly, this unapologetic, bullying jock mentality has always been part of the American fabric but I tend to think that (after a short retreat following Vietnam), the Reagan years and subsequent devotees of his have brought it back up to a slow boil and now in this landscape of 24/7 gratuitous violence in video games/movies/on the TeeVee/in fucking wars for no reason the damn pot has boiled over.
Just disgusting.

BigDumbRedDog January 12, 2012 at 1:45 pm

I don't know. At some point I lost count of the number of young men I knew who went into either the army or the marines as pleasent and mild mannered human beings, only to come out as vulgar, testosteroney, Limbaugh spouting potential date rapists.

PalinzADummy January 13, 2012 at 12:24 am

Or crazy, shaking wrecks of humanity. Someone I knew who we all thought was finally going to make it back on the road to health drank himself to death quite deliberately last year, because he just could not live with the demons of VN any more. He was a laughing, happy Nature Boy when he went in; he came out an artist but a broken one.

CommieLibunatic January 12, 2012 at 12:36 pm

It's the congratulatory mouthfarts from the cheerleaders on Yahoo! and stuff that really gets to me. You'd think the comfort of the PC removed from the war zone would let people think more clearly.

James Michael Curley January 12, 2012 at 1:12 pm

I'm looking for a program which automatically deletes any comments section of any online news article or news site or whatever. It has gotten to the point that there is a bunch of right wing zealots who rush to bad mouth any news item they thing was written to insult their warped, self gratifying, anti Obama sensibilities. We have become a nation of whining bigots who have no apparent objective in life then waiting for the next opportunity to call someone names (as I just did!). F*ck me! The news story attached to this post still has me seething.

CommieLibunatic January 12, 2012 at 1:22 pm

As far as purging comments goes, I'm afraid all I've got to offer is this bottomless supply of Aqua Velvas.

By the Maker, Yahoo! is the worst. I guess I should've taken their name as a warning about their users.

But yes, this kind of crap hastens the pace of my mass driver and space plane research/daydreaming.

The unequaled, awful Pam Geller approves. I wish I was kidding.

“I love these Marines,” she said, adding, “Perhaps this is the infidel interpretation of the Islamic ritual of washing and preparing the body for burial.”
Gawd, this awful place.

poorgradstudent January 12, 2012 at 11:41 am

I look forward to the more "moderate" pundits at the National Review condemning what happened but simultaneously lambasting liberals for betraying the country by talking about it.

DaRooster January 12, 2012 at 11:41 am

Cunt!

elviouslyqueer January 12, 2012 at 11:52 am

I wouldn't piss on that frostbitten cunt if she was on fire. Although the idea of setting Pammy ablaze does have a certain appeal.

Chet Kincaid January 12, 2012 at 12:55 pm

That just proves (in her mind) that you are an anti-semite, while her comments prove she is a patriot.

GOPCrusher January 12, 2012 at 1:47 pm

Is this some of that Left-Wing Hate Rhetoric?

James Michael Curley January 12, 2012 at 11:56 am

Isn't Pam Geller that magician who can bend spoons and crack mirrors by staring at them?

Boojum_Reborn January 12, 2012 at 12:47 pm

That was Uri N. Geller.

She wouldn't want to bend her crack mirror, lest some of that precious powder slide off onto the carpet.

glamourdammerung January 12, 2012 at 12:34 pm

When someone is defending urinating on the dead, that really pretty much sums up not just their moral authority, but basic mental health, pretty well

ick then wipe if off plz

doloras January 12, 2012 at 4:31 pm

Archaeologists agree that respect for the corpses of the dead is the first sign of our ancestors becoming human. Therefore, Geller has just forfeited her humanity and must be reclassified as a chimpanzee of some description.

KenLayIsAlive January 12, 2012 at 10:16 pm

Upon hear your suggestion, chimps the world over are furiously learning the ASL sign for "uh, hell no."

Biel_ze_Bubba January 13, 2012 at 4:13 pm

Chimps the world over are furiously banging on their typewriters in hopes of coming up with "Fuck you Pam Geller". Shouldn't take them too long.

PalinzADummy January 13, 2012 at 12:31 am

I believe most animals (not ALL) show more respect to the corpses of the dead, even their dead enemies.

comrad_darkness January 12, 2012 at 3:49 pm

I think we're seeing the next stage in mindless rightwing-atude. Previously with incidents like the dog killing and koran flushing, the Gellers of the world went full 5-year-old-child fantasy-world denialist until incontrovertible proof materialized. Then they had to back down and say, well, it doesn't matter anyway because that's why. Now they skip the denial of reality and go straight for the full metal sociopath. I guess that's an improvement in that it plays worse with those magical independents who get to screw us all over at the polls.

PalinzADummy January 13, 2012 at 12:29 am

That woman really deserves the worst possible thing that could happen to her. I can't even speculate on what that might be, for fear of completely losing my humanity and spewing a level of venom that will make me ashamed.

FakaktaSouth January 12, 2012 at 11:39 am

This is so confusing. I mean, I would rather be peed on than killed, but the outrage is worse for peeing, instead of the fact that we have assassination troops, and I DO like for people to be outraged on my behalf. Choices, choices. (doing both is way beyond)

KenLayIsAlive January 12, 2012 at 10:19 pm

Goddamn. What a great point. I guess when you live in a country as fucking twisted and immoral as ours, it is hard to even focus long enough to figure out what to be outraged about.

GorzoTheMighty January 12, 2012 at 11:39 am

I am a bit worried about what these guys will do to their fellow citizens when they get back and are asked to "keep the peace" of the impending uprising heading America's way?
This is not a good sign that they are very balanced and able to distinguish between decent and horrible morality any more.

FakaktaSouth January 12, 2012 at 11:42 am

What, like shooting forest rangers?

glamourdammerung January 12, 2012 at 11:40 am

After enough years of using nonsense excuses like "oh, they were just a few bad apples" instead of punishing troops that do horrible things, I am only surprised this sort of thing is not more common.

Apparently, a marine was ambidextrous and had an iphone.

kissawookiee January 12, 2012 at 12:51 pm

My brother is a Ranger who served in both Afghanistan and Iraq. He was always short on specifics when talking about his experiences, but my sense is that this kind of episode is both common and on the tame end of the spectrum. Unfortunately. U-S-… aw fuck.

KenLayIsAlive January 12, 2012 at 10:21 pm

Totally. These are the guys who happened to get caught. Got to assume that's a small fraction of the people doing it.

PalinzADummy January 13, 2012 at 12:36 am

After at least seven years of lowering entrance standards to permit the recruiting of felons, it's a miracle the military hasn't staged a coup and begun slaughtering the citizenry for sport.

Or on.

ElPinche January 12, 2012 at 11:41 am

When we're not drinking beer from each others buttcracks, we're peeing on dead combatants. I'm not a turrist sympathizer, just wishing we can incorporate some dignity and leadership. Be better than those taliban fucks.
BTW, FUCK WAR … and I use the word "war" loosely here.

I'm not sure you get the point.

PalinzADummy January 13, 2012 at 12:39 am

Well, certainly not at *that* stage. But the issue is the sensitivities of their countrymen, no? As a rule, most people at that stage seldom mind what is done to them.

True story: In college in Vermont it was a regular habit of intoxicated students to relieve themselves on the grave of Ethan Allen. Did it many times myself. Of course, he was actually under ground and had been for 200 years. Maybe that's the difference.

Needz moar Kung Fu Hustle. The hero has a flashback to when a bunch of peers peed on him in front of the little girl he was defending.

..Oh right, he survived that outcome. Still my first time watching this film was with my 10-year-old nephew, & it reinforced for me — as I shifted uncomfortably during what was otherwise an extraordinarily fun and funny film — how much humiliation is represented by this foul act, whether the victim is alive to experience it or not.

SayItWithWookies January 12, 2012 at 11:49 am

What's the essence of American exceptionalism? Being deadened to the humanity of others. That some people see this as a noble view is only evidence of how fucked up the times are.

I am sure it will be by reservation. And you could maybe make a tour out of it, start with Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Coulter, you know serve beer between stops to get every one ready.

Beowoof January 12, 2012 at 11:53 am

Well they are so used to being pissed on by Wall Street and republicans they probably thought it was a good thing to do. After all they have had to go out and fight to defend trickle down economics, which in reality is a golden shower for the 99%

sarah_connor January 12, 2012 at 12:06 pm

time to close the circle jerk and piss on those vulture capitalists! word

iburl January 12, 2012 at 11:54 am

Sorry, I don't see how pissing on a dead body is much worse or much different than what goes on every day there. I think the wanton murder is worse than the peeing.
Funny how we don't get all that upset when our predator drones kill children.

proudgrampa January 12, 2012 at 11:55 am

There should be no surprise that placing people in a dehumanizing environment dehumanizes them. I fear what will happen when these nutjob trained killers come back to the US.

We are fucking doomed.

KeepFnThatChicken January 12, 2012 at 12:00 pm

They'll go back home to their friends and family, and probably be goddamn congratulated by local wingnuts. That's what's going to happen when they come home.

BaldarTFlagass January 12, 2012 at 12:06 pm

They'll never have to buy another beer down at the VFW Hall for the rest of their lives.

KenLayIsAlive January 12, 2012 at 10:25 pm

And then, some decades later, some lying wingnut will claim that "liberals" spit on the troops when they returned home.

PalinzADummy January 13, 2012 at 12:49 am

Sooner or later, they're gonna either blow their own brains out or have them blown out in the course of flipping their fucking lids publicly and with deadly consequences.

An_Outhouse January 12, 2012 at 12:46 pm

Slap the spouse around, get a job as a rent a cop, and beat the shit out rightard's kids when said kids even think about challenging any authority.

KeepFnThatChicken January 12, 2012 at 11:55 am

And remember, folks, the US has been intransigent about whether our soldiers should be punished in the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity.

GOPCrusher January 12, 2012 at 3:29 pm

We can't let other countries dictate to us whether or not it's right for our boys to urinate on the freshly killed enemy.

Come here a minute January 12, 2012 at 11:55 am

We may now begin ritually urinating our pants.

An "office?" What's their voicemail greeting like?

I love the smell of urine in the morning. You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for 12 hours. When it was all over, we walked up and pissed all over them. The smell, you know that uric acid smell, the whole hill. Smelled like… victory. Someday this war's gonna end…

At least we probably have an investigation to look forward to now! USA!

BornInATrailer January 12, 2012 at 12:03 pm

I swear there seems to be more outrage over this than the soldiers that murdered civilians for fun or even the soldier chucking the puppy.

GOPCrusher January 12, 2012 at 2:00 pm

Maybe the outrage is just cumulative? People are just finally getting fed up with our troops acting like animals.

PalinzADummy January 13, 2012 at 1:04 am

Perhaps, at least in part, much of the outrage is coming from the same RWNJs who saw nothing wrong with Abu Ghraib, but feel compelled to express the (deserved) outrage now that it's a club to beat the Democratic President with?

Blueb4sunrise January 12, 2012 at 12:06 pm

Defense Contractors are working on a system where a drone can piss on them from a great height.

Indiepalin January 12, 2012 at 12:08 pm

Most of the commentors here would have a different reaction if the video showed U.S. Marines urinating on the Palin family.

jus_wonderin January 12, 2012 at 12:18 pm

Dude, the Palin's probably already have a Christmas video of that.

Steverino247 January 12, 2012 at 12:31 pm

Yes, the reaction would be: "Wow, the Palins really will do anything to make money."

GOPCrusher January 12, 2012 at 2:01 pm

Depends. Are the Palins dead in that video?

PalinzADummy January 13, 2012 at 1:05 am

If you have the video, you should put it on ebay.

BaldarTFlagass January 12, 2012 at 12:08 pm

To be fair, those jarheads all watched the first episode of "Shogun" back at camp the night before.

MissTaken January 12, 2012 at 12:09 pm

“a small group of U.S. individuals.”

It was 'a small group of Muslim individuals" that did 9/11 and yet we still felt the need to bomb them all back to the stone age.

PalinzADummy January 13, 2012 at 1:06 am

In fact, we even bombed their distant NEIGHBOURS and kinda co-religionists!

spends2much January 12, 2012 at 12:12 pm

When a small group of Murricans do something abhorrent, they in no way represent the country as a large group. Whereas, when one Brown Person does something sinister, all others agree with that action.
There's US Foreign Policy in as few words as possible.

I'd rather be pissed off than pissed on…even dead.

glamourdammerung January 12, 2012 at 12:32 pm

I would say both simply because they seem to think this type of behavior is fine on some level or else they would not film it and upload it.

The recollection of seeing stupid, US Army trained shits doing this and far worse in Viet Nam 44 years ago goes along way to absolving me of the free Trazodone it took the VA forty years to finally start dispensing.

Steverino247 January 12, 2012 at 1:54 pm

These were Marines, but the Army's done some stupid shit over there, too. Recall the "kill team" that took photos of their dead.

PalinzADummy January 13, 2012 at 1:11 am

What we have done. It continues to eat us hollow from the inside.

mrblifil January 12, 2012 at 12:44 pm

On the upside at least they were not slurping Jell-O shots from the buttcracks of the deceased. So that's progress, right?

Tundra Grifter January 12, 2012 at 12:45 pm

HELisforHEL January 12, 2012 at 12:46 pm

Yeah, I think this shit happens more than we would like to know, but not every soldier is so fucking stupid as to document their inhumane behavior.

Chet Kincaid January 12, 2012 at 1:14 pm

I agree. The job description is to be inhumane – you will not find a week on being a "goodwill ambassador" in Basic for the Army or the Marines.

Negropolis January 13, 2012 at 3:16 am

Well, there is being a "goodwill ambassador" and then there is "pissing on corpses." You'd hope that there was enough intelligence and empathy inherent in a human to discourage them from the latter. You don't need to be taught that urinating on the dead is neither morally acceptable nor a good way to portray your employer.

owhatever January 12, 2012 at 1:00 pm

When they come at a cocked and locked Marine fire team with a wheelbarrow, what do they expect?

Take a bunch of young men, indoctrinate to hate, train them to kill, send them halfway around the world and surround them with the very people they have been taught to despise and them get all shocked when they do what they have been taught.

Then get shocked that they would act in that way.

What do you expect John McCain and all the others professional viewers with alarm?

bitchincamaro2 January 12, 2012 at 2:01 pm

Had they been Blackwater thugs, they might have taken a dump on them and sent the State Department the bill for extra services.

no snark: just what were they thinking?

PalinzADummy January 13, 2012 at 1:14 am

They're young men who just survived a firefight. I'm sure "thinking" is not one of their operational modes right now.

pdiddycornchips January 12, 2012 at 2:23 pm

en serio–is anyone actually surprised by this sort of thing?

Negropolis January 13, 2012 at 3:01 am

This is literally one of the worst things that you could imagine happening, and it actually happened. Can you even imagine if Afghanis had done this? But, we're the "good guys", right? The ones with the moral highground, right? We're the "civilized" nation, right?

Honestly, game over. Get our people home, and jail the sociopaths that need to be jailed. Just fucking STOP is, already. I'm ill.

megadama January 26, 2012 at 6:32 pm
