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."

You know what? It's WAR! Shame on the idiot who taped this. There are people out there cutting off our soldiers heads with rusty dull blades and people are worried about pissing on a dead body? Americans are supposed to set an example in war?!!?! oh, ok, so give the enemey a lollipop then. WTF?! It's war. It's horrible and sad but it's war. I think they should get a medal. - If someone came into my house and tried to kill me and I was lucky enough to kill them first, I'd be sure to piss on 'em too. - God Bless the Marines.

Can anyone these dasy say anything intelligent without using the term "core values"? ~as far as the PP show..I question the authenticity.

They behead their prisoners, stone women to death for the smallest of offenses, and kill civilians randomly through improvised explosive devices. We pee on bodies...hmmmm....which is worse? Get over it. Unless you've been to Iraq or Afghanistan, seen your friends, children, civilians, maimed and killed by these terrorists you really shouldn't comment.

If you train soldiers to be unemotional unfeeling killing machines then that's what you get and americans wonder why the people of the middle east see them as devils?

Having served as a combat grunt in a Marine rifle company, I find it sad these jerks would commit acts that only embolden the enemy against their fellow Marines.
3d Battalion 2d Marines will now be targeted.

Who gives a crap? Have you noticed the terrible stuff the Taliban did to our soldiers or are you just ignoring it? If this is what TMZ has resulted to, showing this biased crap then I will no longer support TMZ.

Okay I am disgusted by this!! I hope the men involved get punished for this in some capacity.

Shame on you guys for doing that and for seeming so 'gleeful and proud' of doing it. Your a shame to the very Country you're out there fighting for, not to mention the embarrassment and shame you will cause to your family.

As far as I'm concerned these Marines can piss on them all they want. If these Marines had been killed by the taliban, they would have done far worse to their dead bodies.

What does this have to do with the Thirty Mile Zone? Let a real news corporation handle this. If you really want to be TMZ, show their damn privates.

We create killers and then wonder why they act out. What do you expect, them to be able to kill and then just go about their normal day?
