Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.), a former Army lieutenant colonel, sends THE WEEKLY STANDARD an email commenting on the Marines' video, and has given us permission to publish it.
“I have sat back and assessed the incident with the video of our Marines urinating on Taliban corpses. I do not recall any self-righteous indignation when our Delta snipers Shugart and Gordon had their bodies dragged through Mogadishu. Neither do I recall media outrage and condemnation of our Blackwater security contractors being killed, their bodies burned, and hung from a bridge in Fallujah.
“All these over-emotional pundits and armchair quarterbacks need to chill out. Does anyone remember the two Soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division who were beheaded and gutted in Iraq?
“The Marines were wrong. Give them a maximum punishment under field grade level Article 15 (non-judicial punishment), place a General Officer level letter of reprimand in their personnel file, and have them in full dress uniform stand before their Battalion, each personally apologize to God, Country, and Corps videotaped and conclude by singing the full US Marine Corps Hymn without a teleprompter.
“As for everyone else, unless you have been shot at by the Taliban, shut your mouth, war is hell.”

The following comments represent me and no one else in the club. This is my opinion, if you agree, thats great and spread this viewpoint. I don't think I would have done this, but people need to be reminded of the stresses on the mind in a combat zone.
Not sure if you all have seen this yet, but I heard about it earlier today from my brother, then was blasted with it by the news after work. You know what, fuck D.C., fuck the Pentagon and fuck everyone saying how unimaginable this is. The one thing that really gets me though, is all the senior Military officers, who have been hiding out in the White house for the past decade, have all of the sudden acted "blindsided" by this. The last time any of those mother fuckers were in combat was Vietnam or never! Apparently they are the only ones who have forgotten what its like.
People have forgotten the context in where this was taken from. These Taliban were previously trying to kill these Marines. Have you ever had someone try to kill you? Media, I'm guessing not. Has everyone forgotten Somalia, where a U.S. soldier was dragged naked through the streets? This is war. You all got us into it, now that we're here, you should defend how it effects young people.
Last thing, all these senior officials, sent these Marines and Soldiers there, sometimes 3, 4, 5 tours, what the fuck do you think is going to happen? And the worst part, this is specifically directed at the senior Marine officers I have seen on the TV, you don't even defend your fellow Marines and the wrath of war on a young mind. What happened to Semper Fidelis? Always Faithful? Until it affects your careers I guess.
