U.S. Marines

U.S. Marine Soldiers Urinating on Dead Bodies

The United States Marine Corps is launching an investigation into a video which appears to show Marines in full combat gear urinating on several dead bodies ... TMZ has learned.

In the extremely graphic video, which appeared on various websites this morning, at least 4 male Marines expose their genitals and urinate on the bodies.

The mystery person who posted the video included a caption that reads, "scout sniper team 4 with 3rd battalion 2nd marines out of camp lejeune peeing on dead talibans."

Now, Captain Kendra N. Hardesty -- a Media Officer for the USMC -- tells us, "While we have not yet verified the origin or authenticity of this video, the actions portrayed are not consistent with our core values and are not indicative of the character of the Marines in our Corps."

She adds, "This matter will be fully investigated and those responsible will be held accountable for their actions."

In the video, one of the urinating men can be heard saying, "Have a great day, buddy."

Another guy jokes about the situation ... saying, "Golden like a shower."

On a serious note though. I hope the marines know we are going to be subjected to a terrorist attack because of this. People aren't tolerating America's sh*t anymore.

8 Marines in that unit were killed by these cowards. With road side bombs of course not face to face. I think anyone upset with the picture is the enemy

Give me a break the PC police are out and want to make a big deal over nothing. They can piss on all the Taliban as far as I'm concerned and I really don't care and neither should anyone else. They are a fighting a war against them and worse things happen.

I'm sure they would do worse (Taliban to US Soldiers), HOWEVER, WE are better than that, or at least should strive to be. This is so disgusting.
