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."

Blasphemy    

I said good for them, and the Higher ups are going to be like well they were getting shot at people who are closed minded would only think of it as bad. But what comes around goes around and yes they shouldn't do what the taliban does but you know what when we don't we get screwed so good FOR THEM! My husband would've done the same thing to the guy who rocketed an RPG at the MRAP he was in or the sniper who killed his friend. HOORAH!

SEE the deeper meaning here...

It is not just about these 4 soldiers, this picture.

This photo represents how YOU feel about your fellow citizens of the world. All the comments here indulging bitterness and hate are exactly the characteristics that have America caught in the quagmire it is in now.

You haters need to understand...it is YOU who empower the forces behind the wars, to start them. Wars YOU CANNOT AFFORD!

Do not let yourselves become a nation of Kool-Aid drinking idiots at the mercy of a system that works in secret. YOU really are FOOTING THE BILL!!! So will your kids, and their kids!

I don't think most Americans even realize....just between the bank and their armies....just those 2 entities...how much REALLY has been taken from every working individual...just unreal.

Awaken!!! 2012

How did they plan it so they had full bladders simultaneously? I was disappointed you guys blocked out the genitals, I wanted to see them.

Kind of juvenile, but harmless....and I was born in Camp Lejeune!

It's not surprising that this has happened. Soldiers are/or have been traumatized and are coming back to the US, and killing their families and no one is doing any thing to help them detox from all they have seen and gone through. For example, Soldier flips out cause 4 year old daughter can't say abc's,beatings beyond belief. How about the soldier that murdered his child, left in the house dead and riding around with the dead mother in the car, and the police have to kill him. The only question you can ask is Did you get the Oil?. Blame the government for sending children to foreign countries with out a clue of what is about to happen. Don't blame the soldier.

GoodNews!    

So much hatred and anger! It's interesting to see how people try to justify such vulgar and lewd behavior. They all should be dismissed; "Dishonorable Discharge"!

And thats the truth    

At least they are not dragging the corpses through the street naked as they did to our soldiers. For the people complaining about it, please watch Black Hawk Down. How do you know that the dead people on the ground did not kill one of the Marines fellow soldiers?
