    some valid points being made here. as far as the "fuck the mercenaries" attitude... i think that's what BushCo wants. that's why there's so many over there. we put them in the really dangerous places, then if they get killed we can express false outrage at the killing of "civilians" (which is how my paper describes them in the byline) last i heard there were over 20,000 private army troops in Iraq. that's a lot. compared to the 8000some from Britain...

    Yes the majority of Americans are oblivious to the realities of the BushCo War... but I still don't see the need for this picture. seriously... it's the charred trunk of a human body hanging from a bridge... it's missing arms and legs... frankly it's disgusting. I think it crosses a line.

    I'd like to see papers around the country, or news programs, put up a list of pictures of the soldiers that had died the day before or something. something to bring it to the public's attention... for those that wanted to see these pictures they could be found. or like in some earlier post they could be shown on tv with a warning ahead of time... but I think that this graphic of a photo is too much. regardless of thier sick motivations for being there, they were people. in my mind people deserve to be treated better

    Compassionate Conservative means never having to say you're a dumbass.
