Urination in warfare

When Allied forces in World War II advanced towards the Rhine River in Germany, once halfway across the bridge the forces, including General Patton, urinated into the river.Although, it was not the desecration of a body it was meant to be disrespectful.The was no recourse back then and there should be no recourse now!

My advice for the General would be to publicly condemn the actions but privately do otherwise.I would tell the boys to lay low and let the 24 hour news machine blow over until the new,hot story comes along to sell newspapers and get viewership on tv.I would ask the IDIOT, who disseminated this image, what the hell were you thinking?
General, you are setting a bad precedent if the soldiers are seriously punished for what was an immature act done in an extremely stressful environment...combat.Do not be another armchair QB.No doubt it damages the U.S' public relation machine but you need to give these boys cover.
