2. Okay, let me get this straight

...it's okay to show Saddam swinging by a rope, but a flash of a naked breast is severely damaging to all. Breast feeding a baby in public is also damaging to the general population.

This is one screwed up place.

Cheers

3. We don't need to see them dancing around Saddam's dead body.
Have they no respect for the dead?

4. Bread and games. We are no better than the Romans who
went to the Colliseum to watch executions and other gory entertainments. It was the emperor's efforts to keep the rabble from rebelling against their miserable lives. They are doing the same to us.

7. Odd, I had the same image...
I pictured Caligula, at his Imperial pig farm, entertaining the masses with images of death.

5. This will makr a new low...
While I have no sympathy for Saddam, showing the execution or the corpse is just barbaric.

Whatt's worse is how many people will be furitively Googleing trying to find images.

8. Isn't displaying the execution/body a violation of the Geneva Convention?
Not that our administration would care.

24. BINGO!
Yes, it is illegal...but we got a lot of nice photos of the Gitmo Kidz In The Cage a while back.

You have to keep repeating the propaganda for it to stick...

9. This isn't surprising coming from a channel that hired Glenn Beck and Nancy Grace.

11. So they can show this,
but our eyes are apparently too sensitive to see photos of the flag draped coffins of US soldiers and Marines. The media has lost it's freakin' mind.

16. I say we all file complaints with the FCC
that's what got whatever network broadcast Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction" in trouble.

18. How can you possibly compare the trauma of seeing a nipple to
a mere execution?

19. We called them barbaric when they showed pictures of slain soldiers, but it was ok for us to show
the bullet ridden bodies of his 2 sons and now supposedly his execution. Am I missing something here?

22. CNN will censor the hangman shouting
"Long Live Moktada al Sadr!".

That's the one part that will be deemed "offensive".
