I'm gonna retire from this thread. I think those pictures are barbaric. I understand that the only reason to show this should be to discourage the guerillas in Iraq. However, it is still shocking. After all, we do not want pictures of our dead soldiers shown.
One of my best friends is fighting in Baghdad (1st Armored Division.) God bless him, I hope he makes it back ok. But if he dies violently, I would not like to see his mutilated body.
Boblucci is 100% correct.
First the world doesn't believe that the US really got Saddam's sons and thought it was just US propaganda. They demanded proof of it. The only proof that the US had were the dead bodies of the brothers so they released the photos to the people of Iraq and the media displayed them everywhere. Their only goal was to prove to the people of Iraq that the brothers are no more.
It doesn't matter anymore what the US does, everyone is going to criticize us anyway.
I am still waiting for somebody to say "Hey US thanks for the billions of dollars you are giving to fight AIDS in Africa."
