Alan West, 'War is Hell!'

By GOPUSA Staff

The media and it's sycophants are in moral meltdown over the Marine video that is circulation purporting to show Marines in combat urinating on fallen Taliban terrorists.

Let's see what a real soldier has to say about that.

“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."

    I absolutely agree with Allen West on this issue…punish the Marines involved according to the military code of justice and then shut up.
    At the risk of being disgusting…Obama, Eric Holder et al have been pissing on the Constitution, our county, and American citizens for three years and have gotten away with it. 
    What these Marines did was wrong but the outrage from our elected officials is phony and self serving.

      Just another incident that’s useful to use as a means of relegating this country.  I’ve yet to hear any of these anti-Americans/pro Muslims talk about the outrages down to our soldiers.

    As a veteran of Korea and Vietnam x2. I can assure you that there has been worse things than this. War is hell and those who fight are under almost constant stress. The only thing wrong here is the fact that it was video taped and released to the public. I have never had any sympathy toward those who have tried to kill me and others.

    I’m sure the Marines in question have seen their comrades die at the hands of the disgusting Taliban creeps.  I don’t blame them and neither should anyone else unless their commanding officers or any of the higher ups want a “say”.  Otherwise, West is right……….shut up!

    I think most sane Americans view this for what it is, an exercise in phony, self-rightousness by our muslim-loving leaders and media. As more and more days go by, my patience and tolerance for this freedom-grabbing, corrupt, and dishonest administration are waning. Our men and women in the Armed Forces deserve our respect and support and I frankly could give a rip if they peed or crapped on these lower life forms.  The enemy has done far worse to their own women and children, let alone done to our troops and citizens.

    This one man, Rep Allen West, is someone I really admire and who knows what he is speaking of unlike the lily livered cowardly bunch that have never been to war like Panetta, Hillary, Obama and all the rest who are so politically worried about being politically correct with a group who has beheaded Americans, burned their bodies, dragged them through streets and hung them as well as other tortures that are more inhumane than any water boarding. Gutless wonders we have leading this country.

    I disagree with West.  The Marines should suffer no punishment.  We are not fighting an honorable enemy and they should be disrespected in every instance.

    The corpses should be wrapped up in pig entrails in clear plastic bags and left where they will be found by the enemy.  The only thing these Taliban and Al Qaeda dogs might understand is overwhelming, cold and definitive force.  We need to return their gestures with some of our own “eye for an eye,” as long as the act is not prohibited by the UCMJ.  We should be doing things to them so mercilessly and swiftly that the cowards might take a moment to re-think who they’re messing with. 

    Instead, Queensberry rules tie the hands of the brave souls who are willing to sacrifice their very lives to preserve our freedoms.  Either we’re there to win it or get them out.

    Gee, maybe they shoulda done a Daniel Pearl on the scum, or maybe a little stick sodomy that Gaddafy’s own did before he died?
     
    Or yanno what? So, nothing like this happens evah evah again, we bring our troops home, no one left behind and they can fight their own damned wars. Put our guys on the southern border, shoulder to shoulder, pay them the hazardous duty pay they should get and protect the USA, for a change.
     
    And the dum jackass who filmed the Marines, needs a slap upside the head, how stupid. The other four….Allen West is correct.
     
    And people wonder why I love Col West, and would love to have him in the next Republican cabinet…Sec of Defense, eh wot?

      I’ll tell ya RW, it would be a treat not to see and hear of all the *****-footing the jackasses in this administration (and Geo. Bush’s) do to avoid getting into a firefight, especially if we have superior forces.  It makes me think more and more that the Obama has pulled every lunatic from the Dem party to help him in his quest to make us the laughing stock of the world.  

      I understand their ideology blinds them to a lot of things, but sheer unmitigated stupidity has to account for a lot of it, too.  It seems the only time they want to put their big boy/girl panties on is when they’re go after the Tea Parties and wounded veterans.

      WHERE IS  HOMELAND SECURITY?  THAT GUY IS CARRYING A FLAG WITH A BLACK SNAKE ON IT!  RACISM!  RACISM!  RACISM! 

      Dems/Libs are so tiresome!

     If I had been there i not only pissed on them. I would have greased all my bullets with bacon grease. I would make sure every Muslim I met knew it. I wouldn’t just kill them i would make sure they were unclean and unfit for their heaven.
     What those Brave Marines did was pale in comparison to what our men have suffered. If they start a defense fund I’m in!
    To all you people who have never served! YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO CRITICIZE, INSTEAD YOU SHOULD BE THANKFUL THAT THERE WAS NO DRAFT TO TAKE YOUR COWARDLY BUTTS!

      You don’t get it, Leondas.  You let them know you are greasing the bullets.  It’s called working their minds.  As for the guy who took the pictures, he should be taken out behind the woodshed and given a good spanking for doing a dumba$$ thing like that.

    I have a question, could this have been staged?

    The last word I heard about this story was none of the commanders knew who was in it, has this changed? When this story broke it was a lot of speculation about who, when, and where but not a lot of cold hard verifiable fact.

    Any updates?

    I ask about staging for one really whiz bang thought has occurred to me, with Obama and his Czarist-ilk hating e military so much, this would offer him a wonderful excuse to politicize more cuts, do more damage, and it also performs a marvelous job of keeping smoke and mirrors up as he “Makes an end run around Congress.”

    True or not, I have no problem with treating these “Wolves” masquerading as men, with as much indenceny as possible. The reason is simple, a terrorist has voluntarily removed themselves from society, given their agency to other men, forsaken all bounds, and have become the wolf. It is time to kill the wolves. Strong rules, strong actions, do more to prevent future actions and reign in the wolf, than simply killing the animal in Man Clothing.

    I have never been to war, but I have a deep and abiding respect for all of our military men and women who sacrifice every day to protect the freedoms that Osama and his crew are trying to eliminate. When I first saw this photo I was OUTRAGED at whoever took the shot.  Where was this individual when our servicemen and women have been captured or killed to photograph what the animals on the other side do to their bodies? If the need arises (which I pray it does NOT) for the individuals in the photo to require a defense fund, please post so that I can contribute. I am just a broke single mom, but we all need to stand shoulder to shoulder to defend our veterans and active duty men and women – it is the very least that we can do.
