Reading the news on the net, i came across some very disturbing pictures, of the conflict in Iraq. Like the one pictured here. It's okay to show images of iraqi women and children burnt half to death, dead or likewise, but not ok to show american soldiers flagged coffins?
Im getting very disgruntled with this country. Not saying that i haven't been this way for awhile...
Heres a picture of an INNOCENT little Iraqi girl with major burns.

The whole thing is that, when you see pictures of fallen soldiers on our side, you will not vote for bush again, as the war is his fault.
When you see the pictures of dead or injured iraqi's..
it is still terrible, but not as bad as your own fallen comrades.
Actually the picture in The dude's URL is mild. There was another picture doing rounds on some Pakistani sites last April that showed some shrinked bodies of dead Iraqi men lying on the street. Their bodies shrinked because the blood in their bodies was sucked out by depleted uranium shells that American tanks fired at them.
That's right. Americans went into Iraq looking for nukes and other WMDs but they used radioactive weapons to murder Iraqi civilians.
Umm, i am not sure if I should be posting this in this thread but i think bush is going to win in the elections despite the wars etc. Politicians are always known to multiply their propaganda campaigns by using the media to its full extent. For example there was a post earlier where it was stated that most of the americans will be raged if they see their own people dying in Iraq as compared to the local Iraqis. So they utilize media power to direct their attention to it. You hardly hear any inside news about how many iraqis have died and how are the local people suffering except few words associated with the collateral damage. Collateral damage my foot..! It only means that american blood is far superior to any other race in the world.. You are just comparing one soldier with one thousand iraqi lives and then spreading the word of collateral damage...thats complete bull s h i t..Technically both Iraqis and US soldiers have the same blood but just a different skin color. So why is there so much of differentiation when it comes to reporting?? Its only because american media will print or show stuff that is related to american interests mostly. Since american media is far far far superior to any other news resource in this small world of 6 billion people, we all get to think and take the american point of view to things...
Its all a psychological game played with us. Mr. Bush is going to win the next election. He just needs few victories in Iraq and Afghanistan to show to the american public and that would cool down all the anti bush people. Go Bush...
