Solider gives L.A. Times 18 photos of US Troops posing with dead Taliban
 Part of channel(s): Afghanistan (current event)

Only two have been published in Wednesday's L.A. Times articles. The pictures show a soldier from the Army's 82nd Airborne division with the body of a killed Afghan insurgent after he tried to plant a roadside bomb while another shows the Afghan army and US troops squatting and gesturing besides a corpse's severed limbs.

  • This is pretty fucked up, but not as bad as the Taliban shooting dead manacled, helpless prisoners. Then cutting off their heads and posing with them. Shame on both sides.

  • The Taliban are dead by their own choice, how do people forget that? Grind em up and use them as mulch or fertilizer or dogfood or chum for deep sea fishing honestly who gives a fuck.

  • Who cares? Let me guess....Our troops disrespected the corpse of someone who decided it was appropriate to use his body as a bomb to kill as many people as possible? GOOD

    Oh wait maybe they should have hung the remains from a bridge and lit them on fire. That way the local population would be cheering them on.

    • @m-lom People have taken photographs of the dead in war since cameras were developed. Before that drawings and paintings. I should have said. The Taliban saw peoples heads off and film it and post it daily. These pictures are nothing.

    • @skatman21 Taking photographs of the dead and mocking the dead is different. Hope you can understand the difference.
      Remember the reason we are there? To help people of Afghanistan in a fight against savages. If we start acting like savages whats the point in the end?

    • @skatman21 true and they need to be disciplined. Muslims over there are easily influenced and simple people. Things like that hurt our efforts there - it means longer war and more deaths of our soldiers as well as more $ waisted. Sadly this is a step back. I don't judge the soldiers at all, I think it is unfortunate they don't understand what needs to be done in order to finish this sooner.

  • They didn't respect us on 911. They danced in the streets.

    We should respect them now? Leftist pillow biters crying foul?

    • @ValleyBlacksmith the taliban didnt do 9/11 half of them probably dont even know it happened, it was apparently al qaeda and they are not affiliated with the taliban.

      First of all, Fuck Lebanon. Beirut used to be the crown jewel of the Mediterranean with the best beaches, the best hotels, the best theaters and clubs. All the best cruise ships of the top lines made port calls there, right up into the 60's. What the fuck did you people do to yourselves?
      Don't blame it on "the joooooooos!!!

    • @ValleyBlacksmith I'm sorry you take LiveLeak so serious. To be honest with you, I never even cared to see how to put a flag up, but just for your sake, I'm American, and most people on here know it since I talk about local event and even about the city I live in.

      Talking about it and caring about it are two different things.
      I take life seriously.
      I take my children's futures seriously. You are obviously still young enough to be stuck in the range where you do not understand the world. It gets better, sonny. Trust me.

  • So fucking what. An idiot homicide bomber goes to town to kill innocent people, blows himself up and then we're asked that the son-of-a-bitch should get postmortem respect. Not a chance, he's done the world a favor by killing himself and we all get to celebrate his demise.

    It's war and bad shit happens.

    I only regret we can't do the same to pedophiles, rapists, murderers and half of Wall Street who robbed the average citizen blind of their life savings.

  • So it's okay to kill insurgents but it's not okay to take pictures. That makes a lot of sense.

  • The top photo is not a pose. Someone is inspecting the dead savage. The soldier in the foreground is smiling about something that appears to have nothing to do with the corpse.

    War is hell. The Taliban, if given a chance, would tie a dead or captured soldier by a rope and drag them around town and force the locals to spit on it or tear it apart like a pack of chimpanzees.

    When you are in a combat environment and the enemy is trying to kill you and you see your buddies being killed, how do y More..
