This picture is awesome. Found this via Clarity and Resolve:
Picture released by the U.S. Army Tuesday, May 3, 2005 shows a U.S. Army soldier comforting a child fatally wounded in a car bomb blast in Mosul, 360 km (225 miles) northwest of Baghdad, Iraq, Monday, May 2, 2005. 15 Iraqis were wounded in the combined suicide bomb attack. (AP Photo/U.S. Army)
It’s a good picture to see but people will claim it’s staged and all that other crapola. Nothing is ever taken for what it truly is.
Well, now what?

Please pray for this poor family. Both of them the babies and this soldiers. What nightmares does he have each time he closes his eyes? War is such a terrible and EVIL thing…..
How is the image of a child fatally injured a good picture to see? If the USA and the UK were not in Iraq that child would happily be running around in the street playing with his friends.
It’s not good to see cuz the child is dead. It’s good to see for the fact that it shows the US isn’t what everyone thinks we’re about, death and destruction. That we care for human life and aren’t there just to destroy it. My point was, you’d never see “them” holding one of our dying children that was injured because of “them”.
I am sorry but under absolutly so circumstances is that picture good to see. And I think we wouldnt see “them” holding one of our dying children because our children are not the ones in any danger. It is because of us that child was placed in the way of danger and because of us that child is now dead.
I understand where you’re coming from Bryan. A dead baby is a dead baby. And dead babies are not good, I agree. I’m speaking strictly as an American citizen. An American soldier trying to comfort a dying baby casts a better light on America. I’m saying it’s a good thing for the rest of the world to see so they know we’re not just murders and evil-doers.
It’s because of us that the kid was placed in danger? I don’t think so. The entire Islamic culture is to blame for that. Were they not a culture obsessed with death and destruction, none of this would be necessary. I’ve always got the feeling they think the West is weak because we respect life.
To be honest I believe that had America been worried about how it looked to the rest of the world 10 years ago and improved its foreign policy then, there would not of been a 9/11.
America was attacked because it is powerful, not only is it powerful it chooses not to put that power to good use. You choose to support Israel even when they do wrong, which is either a religous thing or a they are powerful, they have nuclear weapons thing. The rest of the middle east see this and despise America for it.
I am sorry, I understand you are an American citizen and the fear, hatred and anger you felt over 9/11 and being targeted and attacked like that must of been overwhelming but I will never support the war in Iraq no matter what. I am not anti war, my father served in Iraq for almost a year and I am a member of the British Terrortorial Army which are the reserve force here in the UK but I am opposed to going to war for the wrong reasons and before every other avenue has been explored.
Also I dont think the entire Islamic culture is obsessed with death, Islam as a whole is a peaceful religion but as with everything you get people who go to the extremes.
I agree though that even in war the coalition forces are weakened because they have more respect for human life. The videos showing how we treat POW’s and how insurgants treat POW’s proves that point.
Yah, you’re definately correct about Israel. I’ve complained about the U.S. supporting Israel in previous entries, years ago. A lot of our problems could be solved by dropping support for Israel. I wish we would.
Another problem with America is their inconsistent way of dealing with countries who actually do have weapons of mass destruction.
Israel developed weapons of mass destruction and they are America’s allies, Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction and they are invaded, North Korea actually admit they are developing weapons of mass destruction and America do nothing!
If America want to be taken seriously in their “War On Terror” they should be dealing with North Korea before invading Iraq. What kind of message does it send out to countries like Iran? Develop weapons of mass destruction and we wont invade you, if you dont develop them we will just accuse you of trying to and we will invade your country.
I really think the War On Terror needs a rethink but it is difficult now because they are to tied up in Iraq.
Also America is not completely innocent when it comes to chemical weapons, here is a picture of the after effects of the Agent Orange that America dropped in Vietnam. These effects and this picture is not taken from the 60’s but was taken this week.

I fully agree with you Bryan. The so called “war on terror” is working nicely for the U.S. govt. They’re able to instill fear in the general public because of it. With fear comes a certain amount of control over the people. The “Terror Alert Level” is a prime example of that.
N. Korea should have been dealt with right off the bat. Who knows as to why nothing has been done. Kim Jong-il is one evil dude. I’ve seen his propoganda films and they’re creepy as hell. I seriously think a large portion of the N. Korean population has been somewhat brainwashed.
With all due respect, Bryan, it is also because of us that the following has been put to an end.
I dont doubt that Saddam was an evil person, I used to share a house with a Kurdish guy who was imprisoned and tortured by the Saddam regime before escaping and seeking asylum in the UK.
But the war in Iraq was started because of the lie that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. And they even tried to link him to the 9/11 atttacks.
There are evil dictators all over the world, what about Mugabe? Why dont we over throw him and bring a regime change? Or is it because there is no oil in that country.
