    Inflammatory video of several US Marines urinating on the corpses of Taliban fighters has been uploaded to the internet. In the video, a soldier exclaims “Have a great day, buddy.” “You got it on the video?” someone asks. “Golden — like a shower!” another jokes, as the group desecrates the bodies.

    Oh Christ. Why don't we send social workers over there so as to not hurt anyone's feelings.

    We pay them less than social workers. Course, if we paid more, we might attract people other than the people we send, which are the equivalent to graduate assistants suddenly taking over a major college football teams.

    How much more "desecrated" can a body be after you kill it?

    Whatever you think of the morality, it's just stupid.

    It was stupid. I think it is low class and low rent. I would hope we are better than that.

    But I'm not thousands of miles away in a fucking dessert with people shooting at me while I am fighting someone else's war either.

    Nothing justifies the behavior in that video.
