[QUOTE=The Paranoid Jet;2650896]This is exactly how I feel about the conflict.
What does your gut say Fish? Mine leans more towards censorship, I think.[/QUOTE]
Well, mine learns a wee bit towards "show it" these days, but thats mostly because I think we as a people need to be more informed and more knowledgeable and frankly more aware of whats going on. I think far too much and far too often, your "average" American Citizen simply pays it no mind.
I think it is possible with some work to really drive the point home and be "graphic" but do it in a manner that at least tries to respect those who've died in service to us.
Of course, the trouble with the "graphic" option is that a biased media (in either direction) can use shocking graphic images to push their own agenda via selective display, rather than really educate the poeple on all aspects. I'd say thats happened already, but I'd rather not rehash the tired old dead-horse "biased media" debate now.
But of course, maybe I am giving my fellow Americans too much credit (I probably am). Odds are they'd see any potential graphic images, shrug like their watching an action movie, and turn back to American Idol........
