Its always a bit weird to realize that most people have never watched the discovery channel.
I mean, we've seen the stories of butchered villages, pilgrims getting scalped and defeated foes getting their penises cut off and their women raped.
Sometimes the question should be What The Fuck Did You Expect. (not directed at the poster)
As for dead bodies being desecrated, this is probably why we can't bring cameras in the anatomy lab. Hell, haven't seen a med student who hasn't played with his share of severed heads and tapped a friend on the shoulder with some skinless arm.
Hey, you get desensetized after seeing your first dead body, I can just imagine what it feels like when the body you see, which represents what you believe to be your nation's enemy and your personal enemy, is lying there lifeless and all busted up. I guess we can easily understand those guys' smiles.
If I had to choose between some tasteless rejoicing over my enemies' corpses or becoming psycologically damaged from these atrocities while on duty, I'd pick rejoicing and hope that when I get back, my insurrances are gonna pay for a good psychiatrist and a bucket load of happy pills.
Anyway,you'd think people all over the world would get over these things considering all those Vietnam movies we've been exposed.
Sorry for the purposeless rant,
