The last soldier I heard of urinating on the enemy was Gen. George S. Patton. Should the general, who, as much as any other, was responsible for defeating the Nazis, have been driven from the military for such and act? You’d think so from the hysteric response building in the mainstream and Left-leaning press to a video allegedly showing marines urinating on dead Taliban fighters. Presuming it’s authentic, such reaction is absurd.
We send these young men out to kill and maim their enemy. That means snuffing out their life, with all the heartbreak and tragedy involved. They usually do this with bullets that rip and tear; or larger projectiles like grenades, artillery shells, or air-dropped bombs which can shred or disintegrate a body. Often fire is involved. Is urinating on a dead body worse?
Yet as I write I can feel the hope and purpose in a headline like AOL-Huffington Post’s, “Outrage over Purported Marine Video: A shocking video that allegedly shows American soldiers performing a ‘disgusting’ act sparks a US Marine Corps investigation.” It’s already tagged under “atrocities” and “war crimes.” What the headline writers are really saying is, “Oh please, please, another Mai Lai Massacre type scandal like in Vietnam. Well, we know it’s not going to be that big, but we can again throw bad light on the US military, which we basically hate and fear and are mad at for doing all the bad things they do.”
Then we have this freaking asshole from the left, the owner and writer of the liberal anti-American blog called the Daily Kos.
Back in 2004, he said this when concerning American Soldiers in Iraq who were caught and tortured to death and burned then hanged from a bridge.
“I feel nothing over the death of merceneries. They aren’t in Iraq because of orders, or because they are there trying to help the people make Iraq a better place. They are there to wage war for profit. Screw them.” – Markos Moulitsas
(see, this is how the left views the military. as mercenaries. the left does not like the military or police at all)
This speaks volumes when it comes to PETA and other liberal nuts who do not want animal testing of drugs, etc.
In other words, Obama condemns Israel’s Mossad for doing something we should be doing. Kudos to Rick!
GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) —Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum is saying the U.S. should not have condemned the death of an Iranian nuclear scientist this week.
Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan died Wednesday, when a bomb attached to his car by a passing bicyclist exploded. The Obama administration condemned the killing.
Santorum said the administration’s public posture does not reflect a hard line on Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons.
To about 200 people in a crowded Greenville diner, he said: “Our country condemned it. My feeling is we should have kept our mouth shut.”
(yes, our islamic leader crying to look good for the islamics around the world)
