Yup, that's right. A video surfaced on YouTube (and has been subsequently taken off, thank you) of a United States Marine throwing a puppy off a cliff in Iraq. Apparently his name is David Motari.
HERE is an article on it.
Now, I have never been in the armed services, nor do i ever plan on being in the armed services, and it is certainly true that I do not know what it is like to be in a war/police action/"peacekeeping mission," BUT I do know that there is absolutely no excuse for hurting an innocent puppy, let alone throwing it off a cliff. I guess when we teach our soldiers that middle eastern people are pretty much all terrorists, then even the respect for wide eyed puppies is lost.
There has been speculation whether the puppy was still alive when said marine threw it off a cliff, with the Neo-Cons declaring it was dead first. By most rational accounts, it was alive. Well, here's the thing - why would you ever throw a puppy DEAD OR ALIVE off of a goddamn cliff?!?
