I saw something about this story when it first started to appear on the Internet the other day, and then, of course, the Obama Regime and the lapdog media have completely overreacted, blowing what should have been kept within the military out of proportion.
I'm talking about the Marines urinating on dead Taliban soldiers video. If anyone has a right to comment and put things in perspective, it's Congressman (and 1st Lt.) Allen West, who said:
I have sat back and assessed the incident with the video of our Marines urinating on Taliban corpses. I do not recall any self-righteous indignation when our Delta snipers Shugart and Gordon had their bodies dragged through Mogadishu. Neither do I recall media outrage and condemnation of our Blackwater security contractors being killed, their bodies burned, and hung from a bridge in Fallujah.
All these over-emotional pundits and armchair quarterbacks need to chill. Does anyone remember the two Soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division who were beheaded and gutted in Iraq?
The Marines were wrong. Give them a maximum punishment under field grade level Article 15 (non-judicial punishment), place a General Officer level letter of reprimand in their personnel file, and have them in full dress uniform stand before their Battalion, each personally apologize to God, Country, and Corps videotaped and conclude by singing the full US Marine Corps Hymn without a teleprompter.
As for everyone else, unless you have been shot at by the Taliban, shut your mouth, war is hell.
As to the reference soldiers in Iraq that Rep. West mentioned, do you remember what the jihadis did to PfC Kristian Menchaca of Brownsville, TX and PfC Thomas Lowell Tucker of Madras, OR?
On June 20, 2006, military sources reported that the bodies believed to be Tucker and Menchaca were found in Youssifiyah. The corpses of two U.S. soldiers were mutilated and booby-trapped, with improvised explosive devices on the road leading to them. Senior Iraqi general Major General Abdul-Aziz Mohammed told Reuters that the men were tortured and killed in a barbaric way. ...Mujahedeen Shura Council, a group linked to al Qaeda said in their statement: "We announce the good news to our Islamic nation that God's will was executed and the two crusader animals we had in captivity were slaughtered"..."And God has given our Emir, Abu Hamza al-Muhajer, the good fortune of carrying out the legitimate court's command in person."
On July 10, 2006, a video showing the bodies of Kristian Menchaca and Thomas Tucker was posted on an extremist website, purportedly by al-Qaida in Iraq. Although the video does not show the actual executions, it shows the two corpses laid out on a road and being taunted by the alleged captors, who present the head of Thomas Tucker to the camera like a trophy, and stomp on the head of Kristian Menchaca.
On September 23, 2006, a second mutilation video of the two soldiers was broadcasted on the internet. It shows the two soldiers being dragged on the streets and their bodies being set on fire. Thomas's head is kicked by an insurgent.
Where were the voice of outrage from you liberals then?
How about when the four Blackwater contractors were killed in the Sunni Triangle in Iraq in 2004, their car set on fire, bodies dragged in the street and hung from a bridge.
Or Nick Berg's beheading video by jihadis, a portion of which is below.
I heard more outrage from the liberals, Democrats, military haters about waterboarding than I did this barbarism from some seventh century death cult. But they'll sure as hell run to the microphones to condemn our military the first chance they get, even making up lies about them like the late Jackoff Murtha (may he rot in Hell) did with the Haditha Marines. Because liberals and Democrats prove time and time again how much they hate the military and are willing to side with our enemies, whether they're Communists or al-Queda.
And don't get me started on CAIR and every other Islamic grievance organization, who are always quick to scream "Islamophobia" since 9/11 and try to terrorize people into silence. They never once condemn these kind of gruesome murders done in the name of their "religion."
Does CAIR condemn it when Muslims are found to have planned attacks on wives and children of servicemembers at Quantico, VA? Hadn't heard a peep.
Even a liberal like Bill Maher said he wouldn't be upset about this, if they were real Taliban. But notice that Alan Grayson in a skirt, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, didn't feel the same way. Of course, she has no problems with anti-Semitic Occupy Wall Street squatters pissing and crapping in public parks or attacking police officers.
And then you also have idiots like that ponytailed, bike riding hate-blogger named Charles "Icarus" Johnson. This failed jazz guitarist was one of the top anti-jihadist bloggers until personal jealousy drove him to the dark side. Now, "Icarus" Johnson sides with the terrorists and calls the US Marines "bloodthirsty."
Then you have the liberal pressure groups who use taxpayer money to try and silence anyone who doesn't join in on the Obama Regime's public flagellation to the world, so we can supposedly show how "better" we are (like the terrorists actually give a damn). Such as what the George Soro$ funded Media Mutters is trying to do to Dana Loesch, because she said the following.
trou and do it too. That’s me though. I want a million cool points for these guys. Is that harsh to say? Come on people, this is a war. What do people think this is?”
And for saying these words, this patriot is getting attacked by these liberals and Media Mutters, who are trying to silence her voice, as she also appears on CNN. Is it any wonder that Media Mutters acts in such a fascistic manner? Their major funder Soro$ collaborated with the Nazis in Hungary to seize the property of Jews on their way to the concentration camps.
Sooper Mexican has screenshots of some of the hate-filled Tweets sent to Dana by the liberals who claim to be so civil. Guess they missed Obama's speech in Tucson a year ago.
I don't know if this is related somehow, but via This Ain't Hell comes this story of a US Marine Memorial in Grand Rapids being desecrated and a flag burned.
If this is related to the pissing video, and if any other attacks on Marines, the military, recruiting stations or anyone who voices support for our military occurs, I'm holding all you liberals responsible for stirring up this hate.
And I stand by our Marines and all who serve our nation. I stand by patriots like Dana Loesch as well.
