But I don't know why they should be...unless you just don't want to see what we pay for. How did you imagine people died in war...and this is a war isn't it? Do you not want to SEE an exit wound on a baby, just pay for the exploding bullet?
The photos prove one thing...we are all alike. That could be any one of our dark babies and young people. To only show dead Palestinians and not dead Israelis or Iraqis is a nod of approval to the same sort of brutish callouness that makes one side think the angels sing only their praises.
The photos should show just victims...all victims. Anything less is just more of the same kind of whipping up of hatred and passions that got us those photos in the first place. Babies in Iraq look pretty much the same way when American bullets rip through them.
Someday people will realize that they all have a lot more in common than not...that their primitive passions are being manipulated by those who profit from "my" company or country verses "yours". It wont stop...hasn't till now and never will so long as we want one side to "win" such engagements, at such prices. The ones who win, go back home to their own families brutalized and traumatized and having just given license to anyone else to come kill their own children.
But to understand this, we have a long long way to go.
