1) These images are shocking and disturbing and shouldn't be posted.
(picture of small, bloody Iraqi girl)
War is shocking and disturbing. I am sure
this little girl was quite shocked to be
walking down the street one moment and sprayed with hot shrapnel the next.
This is reality and reality is very harsh. If these images sicken and upset you,
then I suggest you hike down to your congressman/senator's office and show
them to him/her. This is what our government is doing to innocent people in Iraq.
Ask yourself how you would feel if someone did this to your little girl? Next time
an ignorant co-worker cracks a joke about what we are doing in Iraq, show
the picture to him and ask him if he is proud of that. Ask him what this little girl
did to deserve what happened to her.
2) These images are needlessly provocative.
Gee, imagine how provoked the Iraqi people must feel.
3) What if my children should see these images? It could scar them for life.
Imagine what it is like to be this little
girl and be LIVING these images.
Imagine what her scars will be like.
Why are your children so important that
you raise a stink about images on the web,
and yet other people's children are maimed or reduced to a bloody bag of
shattered bones and you can't be bothered?
4) This kind of things happens in war all the time.
And this makes it right?
Folks, this is being done in OUR name, and
rather than sparing ourselves the trauma
of looking at these kinds of images, we should make copies of them and show them
to every person we meet. We should ask them, "Are you willing to do this to someone?"
If the answer is "no", then they need to stop with all this "support the troops" bullshit,
and bring our soldiers home.
When someone prattles on about "liberating
Iraq", show them this picture. Ask them
how they would explain to this little girl why we did this to her.
There is no excuse for doing this to a human
being. None! Anyone who claims
otherwise is no better than the likes of Saddam Hussein.
