1. Did he mean this?
"The way everyone salutes with such emotion and intensity and respect. The families would be proud to see their sons and daughters saluted like that,"

Maybe the families would rather have their sons and daughters home and safe.

2. Obviously, neither do you.
Because I'm not going to click on a link without knowing something about what I'm going to see.

4. What Bush Doesn't Want You To See
It is an article in the Seattle Times with a picture.
It is not gory, although some may find it offensive.
It was taken at Kuwait Airport - of our soldiers "returning" from Iraq

5. The somber task of honoring the fallen


Flag-draped coffins are secured inside a cargo plane on April 7 at Kuwait International Airport. Military and civilian crews take great care with the remains of U.S. military personnel killed in Iraq. Soldiers form an honor guard and say a prayer as, almost nightly, coffins are loaded for the trip home.

8. A photo very similar to this one

was posted in a thread started by Demo Tex I think, a few days ago and was linked all over the net. It had over 100 replies. A lot of replies had to do with planning a protest march in Washington in which participants would carry 700 or so coffins in memory of our fallen soldiers.
