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."

What is there to "investigate" here? It's pretty obvious what's going on in the video. Get their names and give appropriate punishment for the brazen stupidity.

Why are we shocked? Americans did this during the Vietnam War and are doing it again - shock horror. Americans are just being lead by their noses and yet still think themselves the most powerful nation in the world - wake up! How is it that Americans can do this and then be shocked when a country/people retaliate - wake up!

I guess maybe they should have just burned them, drug them through the streets, and then hanged them from a bridge for the whole world to see, just like they did to the civilian contractors in Iraq. That was just fine now wasn't it. It's a war zone alot of stuff goes on over there that the regular public shouldn't see, if the f&@%#n media would keep there noses out of it the war would be a lot closer to being over.

Umm they *are* Marines in your Corps, I would say that video is proof that's it very indicative of the character of the Marines in your Corps. Nice try though.

What does it matter? This story will get buried and Magically Disappear but no one will ever see the video of a detective of the NYPD say "I don't' give a **** if he's a veteran." When a Vet is protesting the NDAA. Wake up Sheeple !

How dare they insult those poor terrorists that way , isn't there a new law that westerners can't insult Muslims in anyway ? We just have to watch their videos of beheadings and other " peaceful" practices of theirs

I've said it before and I'll say it again. A large majority of men and women in our military are not the sharpest tools in the shed. Many of them are people that don't have the basic brain function to hold down a regular job so they join the military. These are the people we send to be our international example? Then again who in their right mind would join the military in the first place? It really says a lot about them, more heart than brains.
