Barron took to Twitter this morning to express his insightful opinions on recently surfaced videos which show U.S. soldiers urinating on the dead bodies of Taliban soldiers. In our war against these “minority-murdering barbarians,” apparently Barron believes we must engage in similarly shameful tactics.
Most conservative commentators have gone non-partisan on this issue because it’s pretty clear that peeing on corpses—even those of enemy combatants—is morally reprehensible.
If the most advanced army in the world stoops to this level, how are we to expect our foes to give our dead soldiers any level of respect? As a passer-by noted after glancing at our screen: “As someone who has had a family member killed in action, I would rather not have his memory associated with these acts.”
