    Allen West on the Marines Incident: 'Shut Your Mouth, War Is Hell' | The Weekly Standard

    Have to agree. The phoney outrage being displayed by the kooks is rediculous.

    but displays like this do nothing to help the us......the military should not engage in trophy taking or doing acts like this......it never helps with the locals....i always have problems with the 'bravo' of soldiers...there are times silence is a good thing

    He basically nailed it, who the fuck said war was pretty? war is a horrible, ugly thing and these are some of the things that happen in it.

    Interesting................a retired military officer is saying that it's okay that these Marines violated the Standards of Conduct as well as the Geneva Conventions, and he just wants to give 'em a slap on the wrist.

    They should be courts martialed and gived Bad Conduct Discharges.

    I guess West forgot what the rules were when he was in.
