Are you f*cking kidding me? — War crimes?
Via ABC News:
CHARGES COMING?. . . Martha RADDATZ and Luis MARTINEZ have learned that criminal charges could come as early against those four Marines seen urinating on the bodies of three dead Taliban. All four Marines have been identified, Raddatz reports — though only two have been interviewed. The criminal charges are expected to include bringing dishonor to the military and possible war crimes charges. The Marines could face jail time.
In the meantime, condemnation is coming fast and furious from every direction for the viral video that shows four Marines urinating on the bodies of three dead Taliban fighters. Arab media today joins the State Department and Afghan President Hamid Karzai in the host of voices condemning the act. Nasser ATTA notes an editorial today in Alqud Al Arabi that reads, “This story in Afghanistan is not an isolated incident. It is part of their military education that does not respect the other and looks at other cultures with spite and enjoys the humiliation of others and their believes.” However, the regional press from Kabul to Islamabad through much of the Arab world continues to play the story in a straightforward way. And no big protests anywhere…yet.
