    In today's headlines: Photos revealed of US troops posing with corpses


    I'm getting tired of the media making a big deal of soldiers taking souvenir photos. That's the nature of war. It has always been done, it comes with the territory. I've seen much worse war souvenirs.

    Is it unseemly? Maybe. But it's WAR!

    Is it a little weird? Sure. But so is WAR!

    Is it disrespectful? Yeah. But so is WAR!

    Is it inciteful? Probably. But so is WAR!

    I'm sure some thin-skinned, empathic, namby-pamby will ask, "What if the dead person were your son/brother/dad"?

    To that I say, we have already seen what these animals do to our dead, and it isn't any nicer.

    War is hell. If you didn't know that going in, wake the fuck up.

    Pretty much my reaction too, but political correctness infiltrated the military some time ago.

    People are talking about how bad it was to take pictures with dead SUICIDE BOMBER body parts! Give me an fucking break. Bad taste and disgusting, but you know what is worse? A suicide bomber walking into a civilian crowded area and blowing himself and everyone else up!

    Yo Muslim hypocrites, BE MADER ABOUT THAT!!!

    In political speak a "probe" means an investigation and possible criminal charges. The question is whether the president is deliberately trying to undermine the morale of the Troops like he did when he was a senator and the rest of the treasonous democrat party did for the last decade, or is he so stupid that he thinks the enemy is gong to admire him for prosecuting Soldiers for taking pictures of the jihad slime who blew themselves up trying to kill them? Either way he is a fool.

    Since none of you cheerleaders are THERE, it is easy to forget this may cause loss of MORE troops lives!

    These people need a message.
    the frontliners arent weak.
    letem do their job.
    let god pick up the pieces.
    its their own fault,their culture brought it on themselves.
    if they didnt attack us first,we would have just let them kill themselves off.
