Uh Oh, US Troops Pose With Body Parts of Afghan Bombers


I’m sure it’s one of those jokes where you really had to be there.  The LA Times has published pictures of US Troops posing with suicide bomber body parts. Two soldiers posed holding a dead man’s hand with the middle finger raised. A soldier leaned over the bearded corpse while clutching the man’s hand. Someone placed an unofficial platoon patch reading “Zombie Hunter” next to other remains and took a picture.

    These are great days we’re living, bros. We are jolly green giants, walking the Earth with guns. These people we wasted here today are the finest human beings we will ever know. After we rotate back to the world, we’re gonna miss not having anyone around that’s worth shooting.

    Son, all I’ve ever asked of my marines is that they obey my orders as they would the word of God. We are here to help the Vietnamese, because inside every gook there is an American trying to get out. It’s a hardball world, son. We’ve gotta keep our heads until this peace craze blows over.

    I have always felt our soldiers have had an extremely tough go of it, in regards to our nation’s general lack of a true appreciation of their service. I’ve always been sympathetic. To be deployed at the whims of  administration after administration that operates as a collective head shoved up an ass, demands that sympathy.
     
    However, I see images like this and I just feel beaten. I don’t even know what we are doing anymore.

    How are you supposed to deal with shit like that. I don’t understand, it’s a war and people are shocked that crazy shit happens.  What are their options? If they didn’t laugh about it, I think the fear would just be overwhelming.

    Calm down Hicks your very defensive
     
    However, the way your explaining it doesn’t make any sense logically.  I think what your trying to say I have heard, but it is more photos are uploaded in a week that all the photos taken before a certain date……..like from the beginning of photography thru the invention of facebook or instragram.  There has to be some parameters to it

    The bomber in pic 1 reportedly said “Feet Dont fail me now!” just seconds before the bomb went off.

    How is this different from posing in front of a game fish?  Eat a baited hook, detonate a belt bomb? same thing.

    The only problem with the “blowing off steam” theory is that if the opposite situation happened there would most likely be outrage.
     
    If a picture of a Taliban soldier teabagging a Navy SEAL comes out and you’re willing to say “oh, he’s just blowing off steam from the stress of being in a war”, fine. But I doubt most people would have that opinion.

      To be clear re: Ron’s comments, I am absolutely against the war. I think we stick our head in the sands and ignore the ENORMOUS costs of sending people overseas to become trained killers and then expect them to come back home and work at the fucking A&P.
       
      I’m just talking very specifically about the logic of “the pictures are OK b/c they’re just blowing off steam” argument.

    We as Americans do not handle death well at all,  our system of morticians and funeral homes makes it so we never really see death.  When we see photos like these we  are blown away. Other parts of the world  see death daily

    • Socoral

      April 18, 2012 at 12:42 pm

       @Pool Keepers Son This isn’t really seeing death.  People don’t usually pose with the corpses in the pictures you can find on various gore sites.
