Mexico City -- Fernando Suarez del Solar feels a sense of urgency about the war in Iraq -- and not just because he lost his only son there two years ago.
It is his duty, he says, to warn young Latinos about the perils of joining the U.S. military and becoming, like his son, a "green card Marine," lured by promises of a college education, post-service career and fast-track citizenship.

Headless bodies found in mass graves
By Oliver Poole in Baghdad
A new wave of horror swept across Iraq yesterday after police discovered 41 headless or bullet-scarred corpses at two separate mass graves.
At one of the sites 26 bodies in civilian clothes were found, shot at close range in the head and chest, near the Syrian border. A further 15 decapitated bodies, three of them women and two children, were discovered at an abandoned military base south of Baghdad.
A senior Iraqi police officer, speaking on condition of anonymity, said he believed that insurgents, not criminals, were responsible for the beheadings as "if you are a criminal, removing heads is not an easy way to kill your victims".
Insurgents have frequently dumped large numbers of bodies in public places as a warning to others. The victims are usually police, soldiers or Iraqis working with the US military.

All the technology in the world can't beat apathy, unfortunately. Where there probably are a number of people keeping track of who is coming home, the vast majority of people choose to ignore it unless it is closer to home. If they were only to openly acknowledge 1 in 2, that is still double the people actually dying. I agree with modern communications it should be difficult to hide, but if people aren't inlined to bother and go look...?
I only ever remember one set of photos released and a blanket ban on reporting after that. Maybe you could enlighten us all with links in where we can see videos/photos of coffins returning on a regular basis?

You state that the numbers can easliy be hidden by the goverment due to apathy. so, what you are saying is this also the state of mind for all the family members, freinds, co-workers, schoolmates. They are all apethetic and do not
care? I have to disagree with this assumption.
Local news stations and papers constantly update us...... a number of local support groups....help the families.... This does not sound like apathy to me. Maybe to you it does.
I am "sure" that you would enjoy those being platered all over the world if one of the coffins contained a close family member of your.
