This is from another blog. Note the poll results:

EXTRACT: “The liberal media and administration officials are seething with shocked outrage at the release of a video depicting the desecration by urination of three Taliban corpses by four U.S. Marines. Interestingly, the American public is neither as incensed nor apparently even shocked by the revelation. The Washington Post in its online account has included a reader poll with these three options:
What was your reaction to the video that appeared to show Marines urinating on three Afghan corpses?

It’s an unacceptable desecration – 12%

It’s an embarrassment – 7%

It’s not surprising—things like this happen in war – 81%

Total Votes: 13,445*_”No doubt the enraged elites will be equally outraged at such poll results, evidence of the validity of their snide condescension toward the majority of Americans who to them are nothing more than vulgar barbarians clinging to their God and their guns. What that poll says to me is that the American people understand that while urinating on your dead enemy may show a serious lack of respect, it in no way rises to the level of seriousness of that of actually killing them.

“But then again, the liberals are the same folks who don’t give second thought to launching a Hellfire missile from a drone and wiping out a squad of Taliban or Al Qaeda but woe be unto the American trooper who dares inflict pain on a survivor to obtain critical intelligence. They’re the same fools who deplore American forces for not fighting fair. Of that concept, warrior/author, Col. David Hackworth, R.I.P., famously said, “If you find yourself in a fair fight, you didn’t plan your mission properly.”“
