 明らかに軍紀を逸脱している。

・この行為は、米軍隊員には、まったく不適当

ヒラリー・クリントン

・パネッタ国防長官が徹底した調査を指示、
 「関与した者は責任を取らなければならない」とした。

カルザイ大統領

米海兵隊は、アフガンに2万人、米軍全体で9万人が展開しているとのこと。
米軍としては、動物虐待、民間人狙撃、死体収集損壊、人種差別、強盗等が
発覚しており、派遣先での問題が多い。
ジュネーブ条約を無視している様子がある。

米軍人は、一部の人のせいで、全体が悪者。
でも、品行方正な人も中にはいるようだ。

---Marine saves local woman’s life---

CHATAN, OKINAWA, Japan - Cpl. Eric J. Hansen put his training to work recently, saving an elderly woman’s life in Mihama.

Hansen, a Marine with Marine Air Support Squadron 2, was eating at a local restaurant with friends Kathy Linker, Lisa A. Verville and Maelo Cains when they noticed a group of people panicking.

“I looked to my right, where the victim’s family was sitting, and noticed that two of the family members were sticking their hands in the grandma’s mouth and patting her on the back,” said Linker.

Linker announced to her table that she thought the woman might be choking and realized the family needed assistance.

“I was at the table gesturing to the woman’s family members the Heimlich maneuver as soon as I realized what was going on,” said Hansen. Hansen received training on the Heimlich maneuver while attending Eastern Illinois University and also during recruit training.

Hansen signaled the Heimlich maneuver with his hands, indicating his intention to perform the maneuver on the victim, and the family, without hesitation, nodded their approval, said Linker.

Hansen checked the victim’s pulse and breathing and found neither, he said. Linker and Verville told the restaurant staff to call emergency personnel.

“Everyone around was in shock and at a loss of actions. I started the Heimlich,” said Hansen. “I knelt down behind her and performed the Heimlich until small pieces of rice and meat shards came out.”

Once the food came out, the victim began breathing again, but not for long.

“I heard her gasp for air, and she softly squeezed my hand,” said Hansen.

Cains checked for her pulse and told Hansen it was faint. Hansen had stopped performing the Heimlich because the family thought the woman had recovered, but moments later she lost her pulse and ceased breathing. Immediately, Hansen performed the maneuver a second time.

“All I could remember is that I did not want someone dying in my arms,” said Hansen. “Finally, after nearly giving up and reverting to rescue breathing, a massive piece of chicken came out of her mouth. Her pulse sky-rocketed and she was consistently coughing, all indicating to me that she was alive and well.”

According to Hansen, emergency personnel arrived on the scene about five minutes after Hansen’s second and successful attempt to save the woman’s life.

“After the ambulance took her, (the husband) was crying and saying thank you to Eric,” said Linker. “The family seemed really grateful for his help.”

The emergency personnel transported the elderly woman to a hospital, where she recovered, said Duane L. Burk, the family readiness officer of MASS-2.

“I realized that lifesaving training does not go to waste,” said Linker. “Like that day, it can help save someone’s life when you’re least expecting it.”

MASS-2 is part of Marine Air Control Group 18, 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, III Marine Expeditionary Force.


---US Marines identify 'urination' troops---

At least two of four US Marines shown in a video appearing to urinate on Taliban corpses have been identified, a Marine Corps official has told the BBC.

The video, which was posted online, purports to show four US Marines standing over the bodies of several Taliban fighters, at least one of whom is covered in blood.

The Marines have begun a criminal investigation and an internal inquiry.

US officials and Afghan officials have condemned the video as "deplorable".

The origin of the video is not known, but it was originally posted to YouTube.

The BBC's Steve Kingstone says the official would not confirm the Marines' whereabouts, but reports suggested the unit involved was based at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina - a major military base.

US media reported that the unit belonged to the 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment.

That battalion has been deployed to a wide range of combat and peacekeeping situations, from Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay to fighting wildfires in Idaho.

The unit deployed to Afghanistan in early 2011 and returned in September or October, CNN reported.

A US Marines spokesman, Lt Col Joseph Plenzler, told the AFP news agency that "we cannot release the name of the unit at this time since the incident is being investigated."
'Total dismay'

Earlier, US Defence Secretary Leon Panetta condemned the acts shown in the video and vowed that a full investigation would be carried out by the Marines and the Kabul-based International Security Assistance Force (Isaf).

"This conduct is entirely inappropriate for members of the United States military," Mr Panetta said in a statement.

The US defence secretary said he had seen the footage, and the Pentagon confirmed that he had spoken by telephone with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

Mr Karzai condemned the attacks in strong terms.

"I find the behaviour depicted in it utterly deplorable. This conduct is entirely inappropriate for members of the United States military," he said.

In a separate news conference, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton expressed her "total dismay" at the video.

Mrs Clinton said she shared Mr Panetta's view that such behaviour was inconsistent with the standards "that [the] vast, vast majority of our personnel - particularly our marines - hold themselves to".

The video did not change the nature of US efforts to secure Afghanistan, she said, saying the US continued to support security and reconciliation efforts that were "Afghan-led and Afghan-owned".

Tentative moves are being made towards peace in the country, ahead of the planned withdrawal of international combat forces by the end of 2014.

The US has about 20,000 Marines deployed in Afghanistan, based mostly in Kandahar and Helmand provinces. In total, about 90,000 US troops are on the ground in Afghanistan.

The Taliban said last week that they were working to set up a political office, possibly in Qatar, that would help to facilitate negotiations with the Afghan government and Nato countries.

US special envoy Marc Grossman will go to Qatar and Afghanistan next week in support of further talks.

Taliban spokesman Qari Yousuf Ahmadi told the BBC that this was not the first time Americans had carried out such a "wild action" and that Taliban attacks on the Americans would continue.

But a different Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, said the video "is not a political process, so the video will not harm our talks and prisoner exchange because they are at the preliminary stage".

The Taliban are known for applying a ruthless brand of Islamic Sharia law in areas they control and have carried out many suicide bombings and attacks which have killed civilians.

"I have viewed an internet video that depicts Marines desecrating several dead Taliban in Afghanistan.

I want to be clear and unambiguous, the behavior depicted in the video is wholly inconsistent with the high standards of conduct and warrior ethos that we have demonstrated throughout our history. Accordingly, late yesterday I requested that the Naval Criminal Investigative Service pull together a team of their very best agents and immediately assign them responsibility to thoroughly investigate every aspect of the filmed event. Additionally I am assigning a Marine General Officer and senior attorney, both with extensive combat experience, to head up an internal - Preliminary Inquiry into the matter. Once the investigation and Preliminary Inquiry are complete and the facts have been determined, then the Marine Corps will take the appropriate next steps. Rest assured that the institution of the Marine Corps will not rest until the allegations and the events surrounding them have been resolved. We remain fully committed to upholding the Geneva Convention, the Laws of War, and our own core values."


---米海兵隊員が遺体に放尿か、ネットに動画投稿 当局調査へ---

 ワシントン(CNN) 米海兵隊の戦闘服を着た男4人が地面に横たわる遺体の上に放尿している映像が11日、動画共有サイト「ユーチューブ」などに投稿され、関係当局が調査に乗り出した。
 問題の動画はユーチューブや芸能情報サイトのTMZなど多数のサイトに掲載され、「撮影しているのか」と尋ねる声や、「シャワーみたいだな」などと冗談を言う声も収録されていた。映っている人物や撮影者、撮影場所、サイトへの投稿者は分かっていない。
 動画を見た海兵隊の幹部は、兵士の持っている30口径のライフル銃やヘルメットが海兵隊の狙撃部隊に支給されるものであることを確認。遺体の冒涜(ぼうとく)は戦争犯罪に該当する可能性があり、間もなく調査担当官が任命される見通しだとした。
 アフガニスタンに駐留する国際治安支援部隊(ISAF)の報道官は、「ISAFの兵士がかかわったとみられる不適切な動画が公のウェブサイトに投稿されたことが分かった」と述べ、事実関係究明のために必要な措置を取ると表明した。
 米海兵隊の広報も、この映像が事実を映したものなのかどうかは分かっていないとしながらも、徹底的な調査を行って関係者に責任を取らせると言明した。
