    educated on the effects of war on warriors. This is essential political information. War is just bad for people, whether those caught up in it, or those fighting it, or those suckered into supporting it by lying or deluded politicals.

    We can, of course, discuss the alternatives available when somebody else starts a war against us or against unarmed civilians. Being conquered or permitting genocide can be worse than fighting back. But we should understand the price we are paying.

    As to the war imagery, it is not that anybody should know that a particular trigger will affect a particular person, but that any images of war can affect some people. The question is also being asked whether those images actually reinforced the point the speaker was trying to make.
