Secretary of State Fair Picks
Pissing Pigs for Distinction

There will be no teachable moment aboard the MS Embassy.

Marines behaving badly? You don't say! I'm shocked. Why, these guys are giving modern warfare and YooToob a bad name!

From the AP via the Atlanta Constipation Urinal:
"'First they killed the Afghans with mortars, and they then urinated on their bodies,' Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said of what is shown in the video."
Notice how he first pointed out the killing, then the pissing. Some might say that the killing is a given. Maybe both are a given? From the same article:
"Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton expressed 'total dismay' at the video and said it was 'absolutely inconsistent with the standards of behavior that the vast majority of Marines hold themselves to.'"

I assume "total dismay" were her words and not the AP's Robert Burns lampooning her reaction. Anyway, I wonder how Hills knows what is consistent with Marine standards of behavior. She got more video we're not privy to?

I'd say there is enough evidence to show that this behavior is pretty fuckin' consistent. At least consistent enough to end the goddamn field trip and bring all of the darling standard bearers back to their mothers' basements where they can piss all over themselves after beating up their girlfriends and passing out.

But that's not what war is about, is it? We're not gonna let a few rotten apples stop the pie eating event.

The priNtin’t’fYT® media corporation manages to illustrate that that same spokesperson has no illusions about what this means:
"But the Taliban spokesperson told Reuters that despite the shocking nature of the acts depicted, the video was unlikely to affect negotiations between the United States and the Taliban on ending the war in Afghanistan. 'This is not the first time we see such brutality,' said the spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid. 'We know that our country is occupied.'"

Someone needs to tell the occupiers who "express dismay" at the killing machine's engaging in extracurricular pissing contests. I'm sure they'll be relieved.
