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."

Marines and Soldiers are two different things TMZ! Check your facts. It's insulting to call a marine a soldier. But this is a deplorable picture.

That is just sickening. These soldiers, regardless of nationality or country are human beings and died fighting for their country as our soldiers have. This is just plain disgusting.

Whoa....TMZ!

Reporting NEWS that MATTERS to America...once in awhile.

Better than nothing!

This picture is very telling in it's representation of how the wars you fight truly impact your image worldwide.

This picture, essentially, is counter-propaganda. Exactly the opposite of what your military industrial complex would have you believe, about the wars you fight in America today.

Of course not ALL soldiers are amoral people. But this picture DOES represent the attitudes of MANY a military man regardless of rank, toward his perceived 'enemies'.

America is waking up. Even TMZ is helping now! Nice 1 Harv!

Will enough of America wake up in time to change the course in the 2012 election???

We keep adding to the fire with stupid actions like this and the Abu Ghraib prison pictures. What do you think millions of Afghani and muslim youth will feel when they see this? what will their reactions be?? I wonder if this was a video of an afghan pissing on the corpse of a dead American soldier, how would we react/feel?? I am an American and even I can't stand it or tolerate it. It used to be an honor to be an American, we had the world's respect and envy..now it's just sad and shameful.

Good for them! I imagine if I'd been far away from home, in the desert, with psychotic, ultra-religious, armed idiots hunting me down, pissing on a dead body would be tame to me. Respect your military and don't condemn them for having HUMAN emotions and reactions to terribly traumatic conditions. You know, like being far from home and family, in the desert, with psychotic, ultra-religious, kamikaze martyrs chasing you down.
