Don’t Pee On Dead People
Recently a video was found on youtube with Marines urinating on the bodies of fallen Taliban soldiers. The acts of the individuals, in my mind, were reprehensible. I mean, yea what the Taliban has done is egregious and terrible for society but, how do the actions of these marines reflect upon all Americans.
People tried to justify the acts of by saying the Taliban beheaded people and the 9/11 attacks. To me the acts of the Taliban are just as reprehensible, even more so, but, those were American Marines who defiled the dead. It matters what the Taliban did but, it also matters what Americans do. Americans are supposed to be the best and better than every one else. The acts of these marines show how far from the Great America we have fallen. But that doesn’t matter because the Taliban soldiers “deserved” to urinated.
From here on out groups like the Taliban and Al Qaeda will have something to fuel people like them into becoming more extreme and possibly even terrorists. This video did more harm than good and if anything it has endangered the life’s of many more Americans. People don’t think about that aspect though. They only think of the Taliban as a group they hate so anything wrong done towards them is right even if it endangers peoples life’s. Is a world where wrong doings can be justified by the hate felt towards a group a world really want to live in?
