Shocking Video of U.S. Marines Urinating on Dead Bodies Sparks Outcry

by at . Comments

Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai condemned a video depicting what appears to be four U.S. Marines urinating on the dead corpses of Taliban fighters.

A presidential statement described the video as "completely inhumane" and called on the U.S. military to punish the Marines involved in the despicable act.

The U.S. Marine Corps said Wednesday it is investigating the video, which went viral earlier this week, but has not yet verified its origin or authenticity.

The case has been referred to the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, the Navy's worldwide law enforcement organization (which inspired the show NCIS).

The Afghan Ministry of Defense also condemned the actions as "shocking." The NATO-led security force in Afghanistan said the following in a statement:

"This disrespectful act is inexplicable and not in keeping with the high moral standards we expect of all coalition forces."

The International Security Assistance Force said the acts "appear to have been conducted by a small group of U.S. individuals apparently no longer serving in Afghanistan."

None of the statements have identified the personnel or explained why the ISAF thought they had left the country. More as the story develops ...

How can you even think about hurting these four men for doing there job. They should be given a metal for there service. Look at what the taliban have done to our troops drag them through the streets / burn there body's/hang them from bridges (black water). I really do believe that it would be an injustice to punish these men. All they did was gave some payback for all the mothers,wife's,and children who lost a son,husband,or a daddy. because of dumb ass heroin dealers are strong out on there own product and want to cause problems in the world. How QUICK we forget how they killed WOMEN raped little girls all in the name of ALA.I truly feel that we need to kill as many of them we can

TOO BAD THE MARINES WERE DUMB ENOUGH, TO TAKE PICTURES. THEY SHOULD TIE THIS PARTICULAR ENEMY TO A CHAIR, LIGHT THEIR BEARDS ON FIRE, AND BURN THE KORAN IN FRONT OF THEM. THIS PARTICULAR ENEMY, MURDERED 3000 INNOCENT PEOPLE ON SEPT. 11, 2001. THIS PARTICULAR ENEMY, PRACTICES SHARIA LAW. STONING, BEHEADING, ETC. THIS PARTICULAR ENEMY SHOULD BE WIPED OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH, AS WELL AS ANY OF THEIR SYMPATHIZES.

I'm appalled at our four servicemen for these despicable and inhumane actions. In spite of everything that has gone on in the Middle East there is simply NO EXCUSE for this type of behavior. Not to mention it leaves a really bad mark on the U.S. military and American people. As if we weren't hated enough abroad, too.

It is considered disgusting and inhumane b/c "we as Americans" are held to a higher standard. Our men and women of the armed forces are held to a higher standard of morality and humanity. "We" are fighting "them" b/c "they" threaten our way of life... yet, we find it okay to urinate on corpses? What kind of way of life is that? "We" are turning into "them".
