We're Looking for a Few Good Men

Well, keep looking:
    (CNN) - The military is investigating a "shocking and deplorable" YouTube video that seems to show a Marine throwing a puppy off a rocky cliff.

    The black-and-white puppy makes a yelping sound as it flies through the air.

    "That's mean, that was mean," one companion says off-camera, addressing the alleged puppy thrower by his last name. The fate of the animal is not known.

    The Marine is identified on the video and in other Internet postings as a lance corporal stationed at Marine Corps Base Hawaii in Kaneohe.
I saw the video in question and thought it looked staged. It's very likely the marines stumbled across a dead puppy and thought it would be funny to make a video of one of them tossing it over a cliff. Real or not, it's still pretty sick.

But what's even more disturbing is the fact that everyone seems to be reacting to this story as if it's the most shocking thing they've seen since the war began. In our twisted American worldview, a cute puppy is worth more than 10 or even 10,000 Iraqis. You can bet this fiasco will see more press coverage than the Haditha massacre.

"Shcking and deplorable" is the official word from the Marines. They could also mention that the Marines there were under standing orders to kill all stray dogs. From a public health perspective this could make sense as most of the dogs are starving and diseased (often feeding on human corpses) but the more significant reason for the order is because barking dogs give away positions leading to loss of life of Marines. So even though this was a stupid way to dispose of a dog it could come down to the life of a stray dog vs lives of US troops. Consider too that the meaning of this video might be that killing dogs actually goes against this Marine's personal values yet he is under orders to kill dogs. What is seen in the video is a coping mechanism that never should have been shown out of context.
