    Marine urinated on Haditha victim

    The US marines say they came under fire after a roadside bombing
    A US marine angered by the death of a comrade has admitted that he urinated on one of the 24 Iraqi civilians killed by his unit in Haditha in 2005.

    Sgt Sanick Dela Cruz also said his squad leader shot five of the Iraqis as they stood with their hands in the air.
     
  2. Hearts and minds, eh? Can't beat it.

    I saw some Aussie footage about a year back called 'Taliban Burning'. Spams assembled dead Taliban in rows, facing Mecca & in the prayer position, in the centre of a Pashtun village. Then they doused them in kerosene & set light to them, while getting their interpreter to shout out, through a loudhailer to the surrounding hills, "Mohammed is a pussy! Fcuk Islam! We're in the village with your women while you're hiding in the mountains like cowards, come down and fight!" etc. Cue footage of villagers looking unimpressed, shall we say.

    Their PR skills make the RN's look professional.
