Rick Perry Defends Marines Who Urinated On Corpses

Honestly? This guy is going to do anything and say anything he thinks will get him votes. How in Gods name can you DEFEND US soldiers URINATING on corpses? Please… Someone explain that to me because I must not have a clue here.

GOP presidential candidate Rick Perry has defended the marines who were seen on video deplorably urinating on the dead corpses of alleged Taliban fighters.

Rather than condemn the actions of the individuals, Perry told CNN’s State of the Union “These kids made a mistake. There’s not any doubt about it. They shouldn’t have done it. It’s bad.”

“To call it a criminal act, I think, is over the top,” said Perry, who is desperately trying to keep his campaign alive ahead of the South Carolina Republican presidential primary on Saturday.

Perry bizarrely suggested that the incident was comparable to a picture of Army General George Patton urinating in the Rhine River in Germany near the end of World War Two.

He then added that “Although there’s not a picture,” British Prime Minister Winston “Churchill did the same thing on the Siegfried line.”

The obvious difference, viewers may point out, is that Patton and Churchill were not pissing on the corpses of dead German soldiers.

Still, Perry stuck to the line, accusing critics of “over-the-top rhetoric” and “disdain for the military”.

“Going after them as a criminal act, I think [is] really a bad message,” Perry said.

US law and the Geneva Conventions forbid the desecration of dead bodies. Officials have called for the four marines to be quickly punished for their actions, fearing that tentative peace talks with Taliban senior figures could be undermined.

Perry is currently polling dead last in South Carolina with around 5 percent. He came bottom of the pack in New Hampshire with less than 1 percent. It is not hard to understand why that is the case.
