Allen West on the Marines Incident: ‘Shut Your Mouth, War Is Hell’

At least America can count on one politician with cojones. Allen West has reacted to the outcry of disgust from the MSM for a video showing marines urinating on dead Taliban bodies. As West says, war ain’t pretty, so unless you’ve been on the battlefield, been shot at, then shut your mouth – wusses. Hear, hear. I knew I could count on West, a former US Army lieutenant colonel, to come to the defence of his fellow military men. He’s been there, and done that over and over, and he knows what these men face day after day. And no Liberals, it’s not being able to mosey on down to the local Starbucks and order your daily latte. It’s brutal and if the marines pissed on a few dead bodies then so what. At least they didn’t decapitate them and  parade the bodies through the streets; or hang dead bodies on bridges; or burned bodies  – all acts which the radical Islamists have done to US servicemen. If pissing is all they’ve done then good on them. I’m not sure I would have been so kind. Just a heads up boys, this should be a lesson that you shouldn’t be filming these types of events and then letting it leak out into the Liberal, hysterical PC world we live in. Any ammunition you give them only makes you look stupid.

Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.), a former Army lieutenant colonel, sends THE WEEKLY STANDARD an email commenting on the Marines’ video, and has given us permission to publish it.


“I have sat back and assessed the incident with the video of our Marines urinating on Taliban corpses. I do not recall any self-righteous indignation when our Delta snipers Shugart and Gordon had their bodies dragged through Mogadishu. Neither do I recall media outrage and condemnation of our Blackwater security contractors being killed, their bodies burned, and hung from a bridge in Fallujah.
“All these over-emotional pundits and armchair quarterbacks need to chill. Does anyone remember the two Soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division who were beheaded and gutted in Iraq?
“The Marines were wrong. Give them a maximum punishment under field grade level Article 15 (non-judicial punishment), place a General Officer level letter of reprimand in their personnel file, and have them in full dress uniform stand before their Battalion, each personally apologize to God, Country, and Corps videotaped and conclude by singing the full US Marine Corps Hymn without a teleprompter.
“As for everyone else, unless you have been shot at by the Taliban, shut your mouth, war is hell.”
