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."

Not only did they allow themselves to be filmed, but allowed their faces to be seen. This can't possibly come back and bite them in the ass, can it? Geniuses! Guess there is no IQ minimum required to join the Marines.

Unless this is a set of a movie in Hollywood I would say it's authentic. This is disgusting and not every member of the military is like this. I know because my husband served in Iraq in the Gulf War and Operation Iraqi Freedom and even he says this is disgusting. The parents of these thugs must be proud. Just sayin

This is sickening! Regardless of where these soldiers are from, nationality, etc, the fact remains they are human beings and fighting for their own beliefs, the same as our soldiers. This is plain sickening..

To all you couch jockies at home thinking this is beyond repulsion, go live a day in their life and we'll see what kind of perspective you have on it all. Get shot at and suicide bombed and see how warm and fuzzy you feel then.
