I am now boycotting all Australian Goods and plan to later burn an Australian flag for having the audacity to publish these depictions.
Any extremist Americans with me?
Of course it is your right to boycott anything you like, McGentrix. For what ever reason.
But honestly, I don't understand why anyone should take offence at the mere fact that any media outlet dared
to publish such photographs. Why should we not
see what is actually happening? This is being done in our names. This is the reality
of what is happening. I think we have a responsibility
to know. No amount of the weasel words like "collateral damage", "friendly fire", and - what's that sanitised term for taking prisoners to a third (obliging) country to be tortured?... can disguise the reality. Yes, these images are extremely ugly, as were those of the beheading of innocent hostages, by the other side. All of this just tells me that the business of war is totally abhorrent & achieves little else than a senseless waste of innocent civilian lives. And also the lives lives of the young conscripted fighters, on both sides. I have no problem with anything that educates us all about the real nature of war.
