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."

I know it's not PC but our military is made up of many ignorant, uneducated, backwoods men who don't have the intellect to know right from wrong. I realize the enormous amount of pressure these guys are under, but that's no excuse for this behavior. Their actions make us no better than the sick terrorists we are doing battle against.

I bet it was a real hoot and a holler for them. Then when they get back home they bully everyone who gets in their way as though there crap dont stink, because thats how some of these bag lady bullies roll.

This is not what American Soldiers should be doing to war dead; however I remember seeing countless videos online of enemy fighters dragging American Casulties through the streets, cutting off their heads and putting it on the bridge, etc. War is insane.

I love how everyone is so quick to condemn our service men and women. What do you honestly think the Taliban soldiers wouldve done to the bodies of the Marines? They wouldve hoisted them up and paraded around town with em. To all of you saying how awful this is. WAR IS HELL!!! The Geneva convention isnt necessarily the first thing on your mind when bullets are flyin past you. Survival and bitterness is. These men are taught to be brothers and they watch there brothers die everyday. Let em piss on em!!! Hell I would if i had the chance.

I wonder if the Nazis acted in this way, and if the women loved them for doing it back in the day. Sadly, Im sure they did.

I hope this is a staged photo. I was an adviser in Vietnam and although there were times you'd have liked to kick a dead body...you didn't.
