Remind us again….

How does this not embolden the enemy?

[from BBC]
an Australian TV station ran footage of what appeared to be US soldiers burning the remains [of Taleban soldiers]…
footage [also] shows two US soldiers reading from a notebook messages which they said had already been broadcast to villagers.
“Attention Taleban you are cowardly dogs,” the message reads. “You allowed your fighters to be laid down facing West and burnt.
“You are too scared to retrieve their bodies. This just proves you are the lady boys we always believed you to be.”
…the incident could be in violation of the Geneva Convention on the treatment of enemy remains, which states that the dead should be honourably interred.
