  •  Rationall? (none)
    Quote:  The fact is that we have to make rational decisions and analysis. Graphic bloody images can cause a strong emotional response but do not lead to clear thinking.

    Nah, baby, not seeing pictures doesn't help people make rational decisions. Helps them make fantasy decisions. Decisions made on un-reality, on phony, pretend versions of the "glory" of war.

    WHAT glory? If people want to see the reality of war and then vote to continue it, fine. Otherwise, they're being treated like babies too silly to know the truth.

    WITH full information we can make rational decisions. Until we have full information, we can't.

    As for people seeing their children's pics on the front page of the paper? Waaaay less hurt than losing the child.
