Rain, Rain, Go Away

Timothy Birdnow

Just a quick thought on the Yellow Peril scandal. Recently, some Marines ended up with, uh, egg on their faces when a video of them whizzing on some dead Taliban surfaced on Youtube. Now, far be it from me to judge, after all, this is a common practice in San Francisco, and we have yet to hear from Nancy Pelosi, but I do think that Natural Law requires that Man use his head, and these Marines surely confused which organ to employ. Another Marine will be stuck with the messy chore of moving these soiled corpses after all(and this time it IS pronounced corpses, Mr. Obama). Befouling the bodies simply discommodes another soldier. Urine is for toilets, or for bushes, at any rate - not for swimming pools nor for dead bodies. Of course if you happen to swing that way...

As Jerry Seinfeld put it "not that there's anything wrong with that!" Strange how Liberals demand we tolerate such practices when they constitute a "lifestyle" but are enraged when engaged in by Marines long denied a lavatory.

That said, I really don't see what the fuss is about. The Taliban in Guantanamo Bay regularly fling poo at American guards, and those guards are alive and well.

Sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander, even if the sauce is a disagreeable bodily fluid. The Taliban cannot expect us to treat them any better than they treat us. If they intend to fling their feces at their foe then we can sprinkle their stiffs. Our way is more sanitary, I might add.

And many Taliban find women objectionable. The sexual use of young boys is ubiquitous in Afghanistan, lest the men "dirty" themselves with women. If the Taliban think a boy's anus is more sanitary than a woman's sex organs, why should we concern ourselves with a little clean urine?

I wonder what Barney Frank thinks about all this?
