You have defended the Marines in Afghanistan who desecrated enemy bodies. I served a combat tour in South Vietnam from 1967-68.During my tour I saw one example where the Viet Cong desecrated a South Vietnamese soldier's body,but I never saw or heard of Americans desecrating bodies of the enemy.Desecrating enemy bodies gives your enemy a propaganda tool to use against you.Finally you told those that had "never seen the elephant"that they should not have the right to criticize those Marine's actions.IMO since you never served you have no right to defend them.
