Two staff sergeants will be court-martialed for their involvement in an incident that included U.S. Marines urinating on dead Taliban fighters and posing for photographs with the corpses, the Marine Corps announced Monday.

Staff Sgt. Joseph W. Chamblin and Staff Sgt. Edward W. Deptola were charged for the incident, which occurred in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, in late July 2011, a news release from the Marine Corp stated. The incident did not come to light publicly until this past January when a 39-second video showing the incident was posted on several websites, including YouTube.

    Why people feel the incesent need to video all the stupid *** they do is beyond me. I dont care what happen or what you do to dehumanize them so you can wrap you head around the daily activities of war but quit being a DA.
    As for the Military dont waste alot of time and money, bust them and move on, this is nothing more than a liberal distractor to the real issues being faced.

    They should’ve burned the bodies instead, then pissed on them.
