Marines Urinating On Taliban  -  Does This Make All Military Look Bad?

Okay so I am sure you have heard about this, as it's been all over both YouTube and the news recently and maybe you think to yourself, Wow this makes the military as a whole look bad right?

While this may have some truth to it in the sense that it not only looks bad for other marines or military members in general who deploy but as an American to other countries as a hole. However, it shouldn't...

Marine Gen. John Allen, the top U.S. and NATO commander over in Afghanistan stated, "These actions are in direct opposition to everything the military stands for," Allen also made the following statement after viewing the YouTube video. "Such acts in no way reflect the high moral standards and values we expect of our armed forces on a daily basis."

But should this really come as a SHOCKER to you? When you think about it, it really shouldn't, pitiful as it may be, it really should not. Let me explain in my opinion as to why...

I am in no way shape or form saying that this act of senselessness and crudeness can be justified but I would like to hit on the fact that these things are going to happen as horrible as they may be in that nothing as a whole is perfect this includes the military.

This is just another story of some idiots we service members have to say we work along side with like any other co worker in any other job. Sad, yes but oh so true. The military is sought to be composed of only the ones youngsters can look up to I get it.

What most people don't realize here is that there are people from all walks of life, with every personality type in the military regardless what branch they serve. Me being an Airman have worked along side few that have gotten DUI's and are still serving today..

Point I am I guess trying to get across is that there are murderers, rapists, and just plain stupid people that serve our country but we should not be looked upon as a whole as demoralizing when things like this come on the news.

If you watch the news every day you will surly see a murder story or so other prevalent crime and you know what, there not always the horrible bad people in America committing them.

Sure we military folk are held to a higher standard with greater morale, but can we as a whole be expected to be perfect? I think not. In fact, at the times we are at right now with the military needing to make drastic cuts and separate people, it is careless folk like these few who give Uncle Sam the perfect leverage to give them the boot!

We don't need them, and in the years to come there will be plenty more people to join and do stupid things that will make us look bad but you know what, we cannot all be held responsible for the actions of just a few. Whats your stand on this and other matters like it, I would love to know. Leave your comments below..
