you think 1 picture can extinguish the deaths of over 1 million?
No, but propaganda can.
Don't get me wrong.
Do I believe that every solider over there is a bloodthirsty child killer? No.
Do I believe that they're all over there handing out toys and hugs to random children, like a fat, 'ole Western Santa Claus? No.
Do I believe that they're there, in good conscious, defending a lie that we've all been sold since DAY ONE of this BS "war on terror"? Yes,
actually I do.
That's exactly what I believe. So all the pictures, however well intentioned they may be, do nothing to lessen my hatred of these bogus "wars".
Like 9/11, they are a lie, wrapped in a lie, surrounded by lies, battered and deep fried in lies and, as far as I'm concerned, we'll never get to
the bottom of it.
Having said all that, I'm not here to vilify western soldiers. But having said THAT, lets not let a few warm and fuzzy pictures distract us from that
fact that when it comes to the war(s) in the Middle East (Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine/Israel), the west has FAR too much blood on it's hands to ever
be washed away by some nice pictures of a decent solider and a poor victimized girl with, almost certainly, no future.
War is hell.
Truth is a bitch.
