A supposed video of marines urinating on the corpses of Taliban fighters in Afghanistan has pushed all the copper buttons of the military — an organization that is conducted in the height of taste, as you know — and they have let the world know that they are downright appalled.
They have called this action deplorable, reprehensible, pathetic, and deeply sad.
And in truth it is disrespectful and rather tacky, turning the battlefield into that old fetish den the Mine Shaft.
But isn’t it a tiny bit fascinating that the military’s attitude seems to be:
“We sent you there to maim, torture, and kill people.
“And then you sick fucks go and pee on their bodies?
“How very dare you!”
