51. Why Don't The NeoCon's Get It!


Since GWB only goes over to visit when it's Turkey Day he doesn't know and they won't tell him what is happening. Since he doesn't read and doesn't watch TV he can not see photos such as these.

In his sorry mind, we are the bold liberators, fighting for the freedom of the Iraqi people!
This is a War Crime !!!

6. The ones that get me the most
are the men dead on page 4, out of uniform, behind a little earthen bunker who are obviously civilians who had the courage to stand up to their country being invaded and never stood a chance.

Shameful.

"Jesus would be proud of me. After all, his Father had called upon me to do this."

12. This is some of the best combat photojournalism I've ever seen...
...one or two mere snapshots, but the majority are as good as anything that has come out of any war. Hard to believe the photographer is an amateur.

14. That's what I was thinking...
...why do I have to go to some obscure web site to see these images. As I mentioned above, they are professional quality. So why aren't they out there? In Time, Newsweek, etc.

22. think of it
Edited on Sat Apr-24-04 07:27 PM by Marianne
all the pictures show the suffering of the "enemy" and the obvious superiority of the American troops.
We look as though we are clean, intelligent and in control and those "brown people" look as though they are submissive, dirty, and unintelligent.

These photos had to be taken by someone. There is always another person involved in photos and that is the one who is taking the photo=

These are so sad--these people did nothing to us. These children are suffering and they cannot understand why.

The why is the lies of George Bush, who could not contain his insanity to kill and murder, perhaps even under a religious delusion, people in the fertile crescent--i Iraq. HE did everything he could to lie to us to make us believe that we were under some sort of a threat. We knew it was a lie and improbable. WE KNEW that.

and what do we see now? Puffed up bloviators trying to skim over these murders. Bloviators, unfeeling and senseless men, who are impressed with themselves and their own importance, trying to tell us that that Bush was right to invade because Saddam was indeed a bery bery bad man who gassed his own people and who was actually "thinking" of developing WMD. !!!

That is not what Bush told us--he and his psycophants told us that Saddam was a threat to us--and imminent threat!! and implied that he was actually supporting terrorists--those same terrorists who drove airplanes into the WTC on 9-11.

That was all a lie. That lie was actually treason.

What a damn tragedy--for these suffering people in Iraq--these suffering chiuldren all on lies of an insane, spoiled brat who was born rich and never did a thing in his life to benefit anyone, man

an insane man who supposedly, according to Woodward, decisive and in charge. Pfftttttt

NO ONE is willing to call him on it.

We after all, are so rich and powerful we can afford to ignore those suffering children and those suffering people, befcause after all, who cares about them. We are the conquorers and we got their stuff. They are the conquored and irrelevant at this point.

28. DID BUSH PAY A VISIT TO THEM WHEN HE DROPPED OFF THE PLASTIC TURKEY
Edited on Sat Apr-24-04 08:59 PM by powergirl
on his Thanksgiving visit to Baghdad? How terrible. Also think of the horrible things that are happening to our soldiers that this stupid ass Necon Chickenhawk administration started. If I hear one more thing about Bush's devotion to Christianity, I will :puke: . I am a practicing Catholic and I find this war an absolute abomination to our country and to the world. This administrations cares not for the human condition. Bush better visit the confessional ASAP - since the RNC likes to talk about who Catholics should vote for and all.

42. I can't express my anger and sorrow...what an unbelievable...
set of pictures.

I have yet to anything that compares to this.

As a human being, it is beyond my comprehension that so
many in our country are callous to such suffering.

I think everyone should see these pictures and decide
for themselves if they want to be party to such things.

I believe in defense of our country through force, but
there were alternatives to this madness.

This is the exact thing our propaganda Media is keeping
the public from seeing.
