Allen West -As to the Marines Pissing on Terrorists

I was not going to post on this-but-I am sick and tired of our BEST being second guessed by arm chair pundits and the 'powers' that be --s0:
Lt. Col Allen West (ret)

Weekly Standard and Daniel Halper:

Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.), a former Army lieutenant colonel, sends THE WEEKLY STANDARD an email commenting on the Marines' video, and has given us permission to publish it.

“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.

“All these over-emotional pundits and armchair quarterbacks need to chill. Does anyone remember the two Soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division who were beheaded and gutted in Iraq?

“The Marines were wrong. Give them a maximum punishment under field grade level Article 15 (non-judicial punishment), place a General Officer level letter of reprimand in their personnel file, and have them in full dress uniform stand before their Battalion, each personally apologize to God, Country, and Corps videotaped and conclude by singing the full US Marine Corps Hymn without a teleprompter.

“As for everyone else, unless you have been shot at by the Taliban, shut your mouth, war is hell.”

Of course the media would never mention our beloved serviceman that were torn to pieces, etc. No way.

But a few of our guys decide to urinate on their enemies and the MSM goes ballistic.

You know what? I don't care if they did urinate on those scum bags, that's the least of what they deserved.

Semper fi!

For some reason I don't see the media finding this statement from Allen West. I am sure this will destroy the Taliban "peace" talks because of this.

Here's another great take written by and then highly commented on by military, and former military elite. The blog is authored mainly by former special operations people.

To paraphrase the main point and one that Allen West makes: People are only human. Things like this happened during WWII, which only lasted 4 years. These people have been at it for 9 years. And to call the enemy over there animals would be an insult to animals.

Good for you, Carol. I'm sick and tired of people who have never "been there, done that" condemning some of the finest fighting men on earth for a trivial act. I have a hunch that these guys will be thrown to the wolves to facilitate the "peace process" (ie Obama's surrender).
And Kid nails it:
"And to call the enemy over there animals would be an insult to animals."
Yes indeed.

Well said, some times i think the Armed forces should tell all the chattering dimwits - alright, @#$% you all then, you go fight these scumbags and defend your country. Let's see how well you can do it.

The west is in a weird place i tell you, we're supposed to be fighting a war, and traditionally in wars you don't care much for the feelings and sensibilities of the enemy. Particularly one that never gives you the same treatment.
