Statist Scum Will Always Defend The Indefensible

Rick Perry thinks criticism of US soldiers pissing on dead Afghans is anti military

"Texas Gov. and presidential aspirant Rick Perry believes the Obama administration is using "over-the-top rhetoric" and shows "disdain for the military" in its handling of the Marines videotaped urinating on dead fighters in Afghanistan.

Speaking to CNN Chief Political Correspondent Candy Crowley Sunday, Perry said, "What's really disturbing to me is the over-the-top rhetoric from this administration and their disdain for the military."

"When you're 18 or 19, you do dumb things. These kids made a mistake, there's not any doubt about it," Perry continued.

He added that those involved in the incident should be "appropriately punished," but that charging the Marines with a criminal act is "over the top." He maintained that the soldiers were following in the tradition of Gen. George Patton, who he said acted similarly in war times."
