A video that just recently hit YouTube and the Internet purportedly shows four US Marines urinating on three dead Taliban in Afghanistan. The question is whether or not the video is real or a hoax. Watch the vid and see for yourself:
As of the writing of this post, there are about half a dozen postings of this video on YouTube including one supposedly from TMZ.com. Once these vids turn viral, which is very likely, YouTube will probably remove them from its site because of the inflammatory nature of the video. That is usually how YouTube operates, although Russia Today and TMZ.com do have more clout than the ordinary YouTube video poster and that may prevent the vids from being removed by YouTube management.
In any event, the real question is whether or not the vid is a hoax or real? My guess is it’s a hoax. After watching the video on a 42 inch TV screen, I was not able to see a urine stream coming from any of the four Marines. That suggests a hoax.
In addition, the Marine on the right appears to be toting around at least a 12 inch penis. And we all know there are not too many of those around. That too suggests hoax. It is possible that the Marine’s manhood is genuine, which may indicate his motivation is to broadcast the size of his johnson rather than to defile any Taliban.
The US Marine Corp. has announced that it will investigate the incident because this is not the image the Corp. wants for itself.
What do you think?
