West On “Self-Righteous Indignation” Of People Ripping Marines For Urinating On Dead Taliban Fighters: “Unless You Have Been Shot At By The Taliban, Shut Your Mouth, War Is Hell”…

Weasel Zippers

Thank you, Congressman West.

As far as I know, West is the only politician who has stood up for these Marines. The rest have been tripping and falling over each other in a rush to condemn.

Via Weekly Standard:

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. 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.”

  1. I MUST SAY I FULLY AGREE. THEY DEGRADED THEMSELVES AS MARINES, BUT THEY AREN’T TERRORISTS. LET THE MARINE CORE DEAL WITH THEIR BEHAVIOR- EVERYONE ELSE NEEDS TO KEEP THEIR NOSE OUT OF IT AND SHUT THE HELL UP. ALLEN WEST HIT IT ON THE HEAD!!!!

    • Let NCIS handle the Marines, that’s their job. If the tables were turned, they would e showing the Marines about ready to loose their heads.
