George Patton was caught urinating into the Rhine River in 1945. People cheered Patton for killing the enemy and visiting hell upon them. Now, four Marine snipers are going to be criminally charged for urinating on dead Taliban terrorists.
From Fox News:
The four Marines seen in a video that purports to show them urinating on dead bodies in Afghanistan have been identified and will face charges soon, a senior military official told Fox News.
Meanwhile, the Marine Corps has appointed a three-star general to decide what disciplinary action to take against the four Marine snipers.
Lt. Gen. Thomas Waldhauser will name another officer to lead an internal Marine Corps investigation. That investigation will be in addition to a criminal probe already under way by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. Waldhauser, who is commander of Marine Corps Forces Central Command, will determine how to proceed once both investigations are completed.
NCIS Communications Director Maryann Cummings also said her department’s probe is still “in its very early stages.”
This is what happens when we have liberals in charge. What are they going to do next, require sensitivity training for snipers when they kill someone?
When you absolutely, positively need to destroy the enemy, you send in the Marine Corps. The purpose of the Marine Corps is to go to some very bad places and deal with very bad people.
Marine Corps snipers are a very special type of Marine. While Marines will often engage in small unit combat, snipers by their nature are asked to do something very specific. They reach out and deliberately kill individual targets. Regular Marines in combat may or may not know if they killed someone and sometimes if they do, it is in hand to hand combat.
Snipers reach out at a long distance and kill someone. They do not give the other guy a fighting chance. Their job is to reach out and destroy someone.
These Marines were almost certainly in combat. They saw the horrors of war and saw what the enemy did to non-combatants and what they did to other Marines. It is a safe bet they all lost friends, not to hand to hand combat but to IED’s and other booby traps.
What liberals do not understand is the purpose of the military is to go and kill the enemy. It is not to do public relations or nation building. You designate the enemy and you send the military in to destroy that enemy.
When they are done, sometimes the Marines need to blow off some steam. We ask them to do something that we do not ask most Americans to do.
These Marines peed on the corpses of dead Taliban. The Taliban are war criminals. They torture and kill. They will not stand on the battlefield in uniform and engage the military. They hide behind civilians.
Those Marines were asked to go and serve their country and kill our enemies. They did.
Give them a medal and send them back to work.
