U.S. Marines Urinating on Taliban [Shocking Video]Category: News
“Have a great day, buddy.”
It’s what one of the soldiers in a viral video circulating at YouTube said after he and three other urinated on three dead bodies who were suspected as Taliban members in Afghanistan.
A military official said the helmet and weapon carried by one of the men seems to indicate the four could be members of an elite sniper team of the US Marines.

The Marines in question were believed to be from the 3rd Battallion, 2nd Marines, which is based out of Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.
A statement issued by the Pentagon said:
“Headquarters Marine Corps has recently been made aware of a video that portrays Marines urinating on what appear to be deceased members of the Taliban. 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. This matter will be fully investigated.”
