At least two of four US Marines shown in a video appearing to urinate on Taliban corpses have been identified, a Marine Corps official has told the BBC.

The video, which was posted online, purports to show four US Marines standing over the bodies of several Taliban fighters, at least one of whom is covered in blood.

The Marines have begun a criminal investigation and an internal inquiry.

US officials and Afghan officials have condemned the video as "deplorable".

The origin of the video is not known, but it was originally posted to YouTube.

The BBC's Steve Kingstone says the official would not confirm the Marines' whereabouts, but reports suggested the unit involved was based at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina - a major military base.

You guys have surely been following this, it's been on the news quite a lot lately. They've now identified some of the men who took part of the urination. Hopefully they'll all get a shrink and get discharged, at the very least.

Yeah, because the primary objective in war should be showing respect to the enemy, right?!

They did what was deemed the correct action in the heat of the battle. Adrenaline has to be taken into account, not to mention their lives were in danger. Lets wait for all the information to come out and perhaps take into account the extenuating circumstances before passing judgement, eh?

Mainers tend to pull their dinks out in the heat of adrenaline.

I love how these civilians stick their noses up in the air, "ooh, I wouldn't have peed on that corpse, la dee da"

When the fact is you have no idea what you would've done in the fog of war.

It's a violation of both the Geneva convention and United States Military Law vis a vis desecration of the dead.

Yeah often when I'm full of adrenaline I whip my dick out and urinate on human remains.

I know you're trolling, canuck.

The hell are you talking about? Heat of battle?? They pissed on a dead body. Unless that dead body was a zombie, and piss would disarm it, I don't see the need.

edit: ah, trolling did cross my mind, wasn't sure.

OH! I can't wait for Zoot and friends to arrive and take this single instance and use it to steriotype the entire U.S. military and U.S.!

Is this single event disgusting? Yes
Is it justifiable? If you have any sense of decency, no
But I can see why someone would go this far to piss on their enemy when their enemy sends suicide bombers and terror attacks at them and may have well killed their friends. Doesn't justify this act, just sayin I can see why someone would go to that lengths to deface their enemy.

Have you noticed personality differences between the Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force? Just curious. My best friend is in the Navy, and he likes it and all, but says 9 out of 10 of the guys there are pieces of shit.

Generally, yes. However, the biggest difference is between special operations and non-special operations. There's a huge chasm between the levels of responsibility, professionalism, training, etc.

They were in a potentially dangerous situation, and in those situations you have to think on the fly. There are situations where you would need to illicit a specific response from the enemy for tactical purposes, and maybe this was a highly ingenious plot to get the enemies in a specific mindset in order to insure the best outcome for the brave souls who had their lives on the line. We don't know the exact story yet, so we shouldn't be making hasty judgements at this point in time if we are interested in uncovering the truth behind what happened.
