Hamilton Nolan reacts to the video of US Marines urinating on three Taliban corpses in Afghanistan, which has been widely condemned across the spectrum in the US establishment, at Gawker:

Do you know what is worse than having your dead body urinated upon? Being killed. Being shot. Being bombed. Having your limbs blown off. Having your house incinerated by a drone-fired missile that you don't see until it explodes. Having your children blown up in their beds. Having your spouse killed. Having your hometown destroyed. Being displaced. Becoming a refugee. Having your entire life destroyed as a consequence of political forces far, far beyond your control.

These soldiers who urinated on a dead body must be punished. A dead one , our Hindu puranas say,  is equal to Brahma because ,the dead body can not be an enemy or friend and he is above all these considerations.

American soldiers show their frustration ,fear and uncivilized behaviour by urinating on them. In world war II , allied forces led by US caught,killed and hung up the dead body of Mussolini upside down at a petrol bunk !!! and these allied  forces claimed that they were civilized forces ( to liberate humanity from a suffering world ) while Mussolini had been , a fascist and dictator of Italy.

What is worse than peeing on dead Taliban fighters? Waterboarding a live human being especially if that person turns out to be innocent

Irreverent,

>>  it reduces the chances of me being blown up by your icons.

My icons? As a genocide advocate and pesistent hate merchant you should claim them as your cousins!

>> "While these Talibans were killers and bigots, this news seems to have certainly lifted the spirits of our resident genocide advocate and bigot!" - Anwaar

Yes indeed - it reduces the chances of me being blown up by your icons. But, I can feel the hurt and anguish of the champ bigot of this forum. Now, let us see if the Mullah apologists can seek "justice" for these terrorists. A couple of impotent fatwas will be a good beginning.
