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

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

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]

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

    • neiltheblaze

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

      • GregComlish

        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."

      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.

    • foog

      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.

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

      • HELisforHEL

        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

        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.

        • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com PalinzADummy

          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

      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

        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

    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

      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

      Cunt!

    • elviouslyqueer

      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.

      • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/ Chet Kincaid

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

      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

      • HempDogbane

        Santorum is on it !

        • jellybiscuit

          ick then wipe if off plz

      • doloras

        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.

        • http://sickrantorum.com KenLayIsAlive

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

          • Biel_ze_Bubba

            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.

        • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com PalinzADummy

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

    • comrad_darkness

      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.

    • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com PalinzADummy

      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.

    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)

    • http://sickrantorum.com KenLayIsAlive

      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.

    From the halls of Montezuma to the urinals of Kabul?

  • DaRooster

    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

      What, like shooting forest rangers?

      • DaRooster

        Or the one in our small town that came home and in a short time ended up shooting his girlfriend and then himself.

    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

      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.

    ..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.

    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.

    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…

    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

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

    • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com PalinzADummy

      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?

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

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

    • Steverino247

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

    • GOPCrusher

      Depends. Are the Palins dead in that video?

    “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.

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

    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.

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

    • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/ Chet Kincaid

      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

        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.

    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.

    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.
