Who is pissing on whom: Hypocrisy on the battlefield

In January 2012, a video surfaced depicting several Marine scout snipers urinating on Taliban corpses. At the time, there was much feigned outrage from the media and others who shall remain nameless. The actual incident occurred on July 27th, 2011 in the Musa Qaleh district of Helmand Province, a Taliban stronghold.

The exceptional scout sniper platoon commander was a Marine Staff Sergeant Joe Chamblin. The exploits of his platoon were astounding, with 223 kills and 100 “maybes.” Their tactics and skills were so brilliant they received a personal visit from the Commandant and Sergeant Major of the US Marine Corps.

Interestingly enough, Staff Sergeant Chamblin’s platoon was ordered to collect Taliban bodies, a non-standard procedure for snipers — and hence the incident occurred. Chamblin, who in January 2012 was preparing to deploy again to Afghanistan and about to be promoted to Gunnery Sergeant, plead guilty, was reduced to Sergeant and departed the Marine Corps on October 6th. When he was specifically asked about why he not only allowed the incident to occur, but participated as well, he said:

I didn’t see anything wrong with it. I would do it again. It wasn’t like we had some random Afghans lying there. They were insurgents, they had weapons and they were trying to kill us. The same guys were making IEDs and trying to kill Marines. If they could get over here, they would cut off the heads of everybody in this room right now. That’s how they are. And you know what? I won that day. They didn’t.

Now, consider the case surrounding a Lebanese terrorist with ties to Hezbollah, Ali Musa Daqduq. Daqduq was the mastermind behind a 2007 terrorist attack in Karbala, Iraq where the enemy donned US military uniforms, kidnapped, ritually tortured and dismembered, then killed five American Soldiers. Daqduq was subsequently captured in a raid operation and held by the US. But the Obama administration decided not to transfer Daqduq to GITMO so as not to violate Iraqi sovereignty, and instead released him to the Iraqis. The Iraqis in turn set him free.

Here’s what I had to say about that:

Do I agree with what the Marines did in Musa Qaleh? No, but had I been in charge, I would have ensured they received a high level letter of reprimand and suspended sentence. I would have then told them to get back to the business of killing Taliban. Furthermore, I would have ensured that Ali Musa Daqduq would never see the light of day again. After all, he was a Lebanese citizen, not an Iraqi.

Staff Sergeant Chamblin went into harms way to lead Marines and kill the enemy. Yes, he urinated on dead Taliban, but should he lose his Marine career as punishment? By allowing Daqduq to ultimately go free, President Barack Obama has truly urinated on the memory of five American Soldiers. What is his punishment?

Hypocrisy on the 21st century battlefield is rampant under this administration.

  1. the Marine, should never lose his career or get punishment because he urinated Enemy They do more than to our people. Why respect the people who do not respect you. Obama is bad president. Just like I said his having allergic around with Good people.

  2. Pacifists and their supporters have to make a choice: They have to erroneously, believe they are never going to be in danger or they have to accept that someone else is going to die for them when they are in danger.

  3. To all true american republics. We all must unite as Republicans!
    Put aside all our small differences (we can deal with them later on)
    We must defend our constitution by all means…
    UNIT
    UNITE
    UNITED
    WIN

  4. It is my understanding, and correct me if I’m wrong, that one of the leaders of the Benghazi attackers was once held by us at GITMO and was turned loose, I presume, since he was free to attack our embassy. WTH?!

      • As you stated on the Human Rights Campaign site, you were happy to attend Joe and Bobby’s wedding. Really surprised tho that you didn’t spread your love bag around and join them on their honeymoon to make it a threesome.

      • sorry you are wrong dick head, tea baggers are for the constitution and is nothing near the taliban, you are an ass for saying that and if I was near you I would punch you in the face

      • why do you say tea baggers they are not all democracts are more communistic farces and lean on every word obama has to say and when it bothers them they get exempted tea baggers are for your freedoms why is it not the teabaggers trying to get your guns it isn’t them look it up

      • obviously you have no idea what the tea party stands for and probably didn’t bother to go to school to learn about what it meant when our country rebelled. you are just another obama troll.

        shame people don’t read before they make judgement, just the koolaid drinkers following with a blindfold.

      • You can’t possibly believe what you posted here, can you?
        The ironic thing is that the Tea Party that you so hate are right now fighting to preserve your right to spew your hatred and reject God and gather peacefully with other idiotic haters and fight off a murderer if you so choose….they are willing to sacrifice on your behalf, and all you can do is insult and slander them. Woops, your lack of character is showing.

  5. God bless America and our Marines corp. Which obama can not even pronounce right. If this does not convince you that obama is Muslim then nothing will. Even one of his directors in the homeland security council , who just said america is a muslim country. I think it is about time we understand, we are under attack for within as well as abroad Destroy the middle class, our military. our medical system and divide us by class, race and religion. I consider Islam a cult…They blow themselves and you up if you disagree with them, marriage with children, beat women and consider themselves a “PEACEFUL Religion”. But I guess this makes me a raciest.

      • Absolutely on track. It is a political system of domination. It is dark-hearted evil that captures the minds at tender ages. Satanic is the feeling I had for it in Iraq. I tended to the one whom I wounded as a Corpsman, but think of it-the dead are already gone.

      • Thank you for serving our country. I’m sorry you had to go there and deal with all of that stuff. Maybe others can too, I don’t know, but those who know Christ can sense evil – I believe it is the Holy Spirit alerting us. God help us, we have two major forms of tyranny struggling to dominate us at once here, socialism and Islam. They were allies in WWII and they are allies today, with freedom as their common enemy.

      • May god kill with haste EVERY person commenting that its ok to disrespect dead bodies!if you all were not pruducts of inbreeding you would take the time to read before youspeak words of ignorance. But im sure your all too busy molesting little boys in jesus name!!!!may god humiliate and kill you and your offspring!

      • you know desi,,,,,time for you to take a chill pill. Who the heck do you think you are? and speaking of words of ignorance,,,,,,YOU SEEM TO DO THAT QUITE EASILY. you are very ignorant,, if you know what that word mean,,,,,,or could you, by your words be a muslim,,,,,,,your wording and phraseology is very similar to muslim threats,,,,only you insert the words God and Jesus, when you really mean Allah and just WHO molested innocent children, again, sounds like the muslims…..

      • Lol, your posts scream “I’m an Islamic terrorist” all over the place. Funny thing, you may want to kill as many Christians and Americans as possible, but God will not follow your demands. Your hatred will never win in this world. Your threats are ridiculous and evil. Nice combination. Maybe you can crawl back into your hole and stay there now. It’s annoying to see your flaming posts full of barbaric threats and hatred. Silly boy.

      • Get a grip, you sound like a fool. Stop posting if you can’t handle the real world. Sounds like you live in a make believe world.. Never post again!

    • weli stated. How much longer before we wake up and see what is really going on. American citizens must unite and take steps (peacefully and orderly) to save our country from becoming a lessor value among other nations, We are America the land of the brave and the free. God Bless America!!!!

  6. Because of Marine Chamblin and his platoon, there’s 223 terrorists DEAD!
    I offer my thanks, gratitude and smile to that platoon.

  7. The bastards deserve to be pissed on. Has anyone ever divulged what the Taliban does to corpses of our servicemen they kill. I have heard they drag them through the streets, hang them, set them on fire and other abuses that should never occur on a battleground.
    What did the terrorists do to our ambassador and the other three Americans in Benghazi. Yes, they are in different parts of the world, but they are STILL muslim terrorists. As a former United States Marine, I say kill them, piss on them, cut their ears and other appendages off, make change purses out of their scrotums and then burn their bodies and rake the ashes into the dirt!

  8. Well had I been there I would have joined in. I didn’t see that in Viet Nam but it could have been done. During WWII there were so many degrading activities performed on dead Jap soldiers and marines by American Soldiers and Marines like cutting out their gold teeth and nothing was done to them. They should have been charged with being stupid for filming it and put on 30 days mess duty.

    • Philip,,,,,,,,,,,American soldiers and Marines doing what? and if they did, after what the Japanese did to Americans they captured does not seem to bother you,,,anything the Americans did to DEAD soldiers was miniscule, yes, unnecessary, but compared to the brutality of the Japanese on LIVE AMERICANS…oh you must think that was ok,,,,,,,,,,well, war is HELL and we did NOT start it………go on the battlefield and then complain,,,,

  9. There is a story about an insurrection in the Philippines that Gen. Pershing ended abruptly with the use of 2 pigs. I heard there was no Muslim extremist attacks anywhere in the world for the next 42 years. If it is true, why are we not using that tactic now?

  10. Thou. Must not have been paying much attention. OBama ordered the attack on Benghazi and the American Ambassy then he blamed it on Hillary Clinton and a few others. The manis satan himself!

    • sorry Victoria, when did obama ever blame clinton,,,,,,,,,,,they blamed it on a stupid video that very few folks had even seen, clinton even had dinish d’sousa arrested for making the video,,,,obama, clinton and panetta are guilty of what happened in Behghazi,,,,clinton for demanding that the Marine Guards empty their rifles becayse as she said they did not need ammunition, obama because when he should have been in the situation room, where any decent president would have been, but nobama had to get his sleep, after all to him, his golf game in vegas the next morning was more important than Americans being killed…then there is panetta,,,him,,,,,,he is good a lying to, All three of them should have been in the situation room,,,,,,,,someone had to give the Stand down order,,,and any one of those three could have done it,,,,,,,,but the problem is no one is admitting anything,,,,Time for all three of them to be put in prison for aiding and abeting the enemy;

      • When it comes to the military there is only person who has that authority to order a “Stand Down” and it IS NOT the Secretary of State or Defense. That would be the President. In 2014, if the Republicans keep the House, which should be no problem and get some number higher than 51 in the Senate you will see proceedings for impeachment of BHO. The Down side is we would have Uncle Joe for President. The upside of that is he would then be the Incumbent shutting out Billary…. The other upside is, I would be willing to bet he would fire some cabinet members. I am being eternally pessimistically optimistic.

  11. Pi$$ on all of the terrorists. That especially includes the ones terrorizing my White House. We need to “terrorize” them in November 2014, and again in 2016.
    Semper Fi!

  12. So .. we pick this guy up in Iraq, and Iraq’s a sovereign nation. How exactly are we supposed to take him to Gitmo if the Iraqis don’t want to let him go? Does Iraq get to send soldiers to the States to snatch up people they want?

    That’s the problem with nation-building. You build a nation, then it doesn’t do what you want.

  13. Sir you cannot expect anything differant from our muslim brotherhood president.ones first love always shows in ones executive decisions.

  14. Obama is what is wrong with this country, I simply cannot believe that this man is still in power as President. Something seriously wrong when we let the enemy go free yet punish our own men.

  15. Obama could not lead kids to a candy store, so this is no surprise. He is not a Commander-in-Cheif, he is a pc-America-hating-pansy-in-cheif. It’s too bad that the media gave him a pass in ’08 on his deep communist ties and life-long mentoring. Every move this administration makes is about control…..control over the lives of “we the people.”

  16. I don’t blame these soliders for what they did more power to them. What is wrong with this is that we have a musim in our white house.

    • U slow ass read a book!that kafir is far from muslim,hes jyst like YOU hollow wood only good burning!may god allow you AND them AND your children to be pissed on!

      • If your borderline retarded mother would have took more time to teach u n less time inbreeding you would know.your question only proves your utter ignorance: )but you and your worthless family will find out……your day is coming and may god humiliate you like the filthy animal you are.may death be upon you!

      • We have a LEFT LOON at it again! By the way desi, if anyone has a retarded mother it is you with the grammar you used in the other post. By the way you do know that it is against the LAW to threaten someone with death, oops forget your retardation is showing. By the way I have already copied your death threat post and I will use it to have to, to see you are arrested and prosecuted.

      • Yes i did piss you off and i’m gld but when you talk about my family i know that you’re a (POS) I consider my self a lot better than you are. SSO FFFK YOU.

      • Yo desi dude,
        I am truly impressed that you could actually access the internet from your cave in whatever backassward country you are living in but surely you have learned by now that Americans aren’t too intimidated by or even interested in the ramblings of an ass-clown with a weak hold on the English language and an immature almost sophomoric inability to smack talk better than a second grader. Let me help you pal. We Americans are weaned off our mothers tit at a year or two so we don’t really get too upset when you talk about our mothers. Most of our mothers graduated from some college or university, hold full time jobs and are able to drive, balance a check book and sing a song to the kids in the car all at once. And our mothers typically kick ass when it comes to people bullying her kids so… we don’t really feel we need to defend her. Secondly inbreeding isn’t our usual way of life here in the states, there are almost 300 million of us making it so rare as to be a strange anomaly unlike the small villages in some countries where the family goat is an actual blood relative. Probably like the village you come from. I can understand your confusion because we do tend to put animals on equal footing with ourselves and in fact the bulk of Americans believe that life whether it comes in a dog suit, cat suit or human suit is precious and should be treated with respect. Not that there aren’t occasions that we meet someone who is so full of hatred that it just seems kinder to put him out of his misery. Send him to meet God and let God figure it out. So you really need to find a MUCH better way of insulting us. I don’t really know what that would be, let me poll the room. Just a moment. OK. It appears that everyone in this room believes you to be an illiterate, small minded, bitter, probably extremely sexually abused small man, frightened of animals and God. We can see from your writing that you wish your mother had been able to protect you, since your father was probably killed when you were young, and you have become worthless in your own eyes and find it just a tiny bit of a relief to sling the same words into the webisphere that you have heard slung at you, your whole life. We are so sorry for you. Unfortunately it would take almost a miracle to bring you back from the edge because you have been drinking the cool-aid since birth. I’m so sorry. BTW That whole “death be upon you” thing is also pretty impotent. Islamists believe it’s the worst thing you can do to someone. That is because they believe in their hearts that there is no God and the only thing that awaits them is damnation. We Americans on the other hand are mostly Christians, we are not afraid of death because we know that our Father in heaven is not a child rapist (in the name of Allah) nor is he a woman rapist (in the name of Allah) nor will he torture, cut heads off, enslave, stone nor will he roll over the arms of a small child with a truck for stealing food when he is hungry. (in the name of Allah). So listen, we will pray that our God sees fit to either smile on you and bring a little sunshine into your heart or that you will choose to join him taking a few of your closest friends with you (in the name of Allah.)

    • You are so dead on. I warned people from the first time I heard his fictitious name of Barak Obama that he is Muslim. He declared in his writing of one of his books that, he’ll stand with the muslims when they are being oppressed (in my words), Any other time in history, whenever something occurred concerning our soldiers, the military had the say-so. Not anymore, POTUS has got to have the say-so in everything going on.

  17. I have talked about this to many people, I have yet to find anyone who cares. About the most I have heard negative, and I think the same, is that they allowed pictures to be taken and did not confiscate the cameras.

  18. Media has a definite place on the battlefield as long as they report instead of invent stories. The problem here is not that it was reported. The problem here is with the Military Justice system and they way they handled the discipline. Don’t shoot the messenger!

  19. What should be a standing order: Kill any Taliban on sight. Stuff corpse with pig guts. Set landmine under corpse that is attached to goat-porn magazine so that his fellow Taliban friend finds corpse but sets off landmine when he reaches for magazine. It’s a “two-fer”!

  20. Warrriors pissing on raghead dead doesnt bother me. They deserved it. But the bigger isssue is their so-called CINC pissing on the US Constitiution,

  21. I don’t know anyone, including myself, that has any problem with this. Maybe they shouldn’t have done it, but since they did, oh freakin well. I totally agree with the common sense punishment Mr. West mentioned, and with Tom Stewart as the media does not have nor need, a place in a war zone. Leave our soilders alone and let them do whatever it is that they need to do. Our military was already one of the most humane groups of ‘fighting men’ in the world. And finally, until YOU are in the middle of a terrorist war zone do NOT judge those who are! No one has any idea exactly what they are capable of, or not, in a war so back off.

  22. Desi…I am a 62 year old mother of two. and dropped only one round out of 20 from 300 meters…Im a Christian not afraid of death…so you’re in for a real treat when your make your move. you rape to your women and children both boys and girls earns you a place in hell.. Make my day…war is hell..
