The camera wielding Army soldiers at Abu Ghraib and in the 5th Stryker Brigade brought much of their pain on themselves when they photographed their misdeeds with Iraqi prisoners and Afghan detainees, respectively.  Now it would appear that US Marines have joined the masochistic trend and are trying to bring the full wrath of the MilJus system down on themselves.  According to the WaPo Checkpoint Washington  blog, members of “a scout sniper team with the 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines” allegedly recorded video of themselves urinating on Taliban corpses.  The blog post with graphic video can be found here.  An investigation is reportedly underway.
