Fwiw, I don't really care so much about the pissing on them. They are dead, it doesn't really matter. But it does matter to a lot of the people in that area of the world, some of which we have to convince to help us. Remember how we treated Osama's body, having a muslim sailor properly prepare him for burial? It wasn't done because we give a crap about Osama, it was done to convince them we respect their customs. This doesn't help. Which is why I agree with Zod. For god sakes, don't film it.
Yep. Don't take pictures of any kind. But one must wonder what taliban customs are called for if those bastards had killed or captured those Marines.

Its very hard to teach some to respect a dead enemy that was trying to kill them a few minutes ago. Especially when its an enemy that has shown little respect for the rules of war themselves. All the rules of war and military regulations in the world will not completely stop this type of thing from happening. It just goes against the nature of some people.
Not that I am excusing it. These folks broke the rules, made us look bad, and they deserve to be punished for it.
But I have to ask. How stupid do you have to be to film something like that?
I have to agree. If the jihadists had killed the Americans instead, they would have cut theyre heads off with a pocketknife, or hung up theyre burned corpses naked from a bridge or whatever else they always do.
Generally, two enemies that are at war with each other typically dont like each other...
Next time, leave the camera at the base.
