Pissing On The Taliban

This one got me a new fan on HuffPo, so I’ll repost it here.

Soldiers from times immemorial have been hired and trained by chieftains­, kings, popes and government­s to act inhumanely and kill. That’s their job. When the fighting is done and the dust settles we shouldn’t be too upset if they let off a little steam by pissing on the enemy they just killed. Purely a symbolic gesture. It goes with the territory. Instead of showing fake moral indignatio­n, we should concentrat­e our focus on not getting involved in so many wars in the first place. *That’s* the true insult to human decency.
