"Fallujah/ Dead Babies/ No Jokes/ Warning: Graphic Images"


http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...


Because it sank pretty fast. Did you just have no comment or do you like to ignore things like that?

Just curious.

I mean, your tax dollars went towards killing them. Don't you at least owe it to them to look at their faces?

(edited to include last two sentences.)

1. just one data point -- no I didn't click
I avoid graphic images. I realize it's important to report what is really happening but for myself I prefer to avoid graphic images of violence, especially when it's real people being photographed. For me it crosses a line. So yes, I personally chose to pass by any posts with "graphic images" warning.

4. What
line does it cross? I'm just curious too. I dislike violence. I won't even consider seeing "The Passion Of the Christ".But this is our responsibility as a nation. I am sickened by the thought that we did this and for NO justifiable reason.

3. Yeah, I avoided it. I know what's going on out there.

As someone who is against this war, I don't need to see the outcome of something I want no part in. I can imagine it well enough.
Besides, I'm at work. I don't want to have to explain the pictures of mutiliated children on my work computer. That would lead to some pretty interesting conversations in this open-plan office.

5. Didn't see it till now ...
... while pictures like this are hard to look at, they should be seen by those who think war is a good thing. Especially those who are so pro-war and anti-peace.

The "Warning: Graphic Images" would not stop me from clicking. In fact, it usually peaks my curiosity. But fair warning is appreciated so one can be prepared for anything.

EDIT: thought you were talking about a different thread which only gave a website URL.

Yes, I clicked on this, and it is heartbreaking. What to say?? I have posted so many :cry: that sometimes I think I better wait until I have something of substance to say. . .

7. Yes...I couldn't respond to it at the time.
I'm thinking about sending some of those pictures around to demonstrate to some folks just what that "fine christian man in the White House" and his neocon buddies' lies have caused.
