Part of me says whatever goes on in the battlefield should stay in the battlefield. But fortunately or unfortunately in today's world that is not the case. Somebody is always watching and this is a prime example.

The rest of the story and the actual video is after the jump. Warning the video is very graphic.

Footage showing American soldiers urinating on dead Afghan bodies has sparked outrage across the world. Afghanistan's leaders label it as a recruitment tool for the Taliban.

The 40-second clip shows four men in combat gear standing over the three corpses with their genitals exposed as they relieve themselves.

It is not clear if the corpses belong to civilians or insurgents engaged in combat, although the film does appear to have been shot in Afghanistan.

Watch the video below. Warning it is very graphic.
