    I downloaded that picture the first time I saw it, clear back when it was taken. It is THE most powerful image of the whole mess.

    I can’t look at it too often or they’ll have to come and arrest me.

    It is very powerful.
    Notice that NYT (link within the link above) has published half of the photo.

    I just left a comment on a blog post about Vietnam, recalling that as a child, I remember vividly the war footage that was aired on television. I believe to this day those images had the most impact on me as an adult who apposes war – particularly war based on lies, manipulation, fear, greed…what have I left out?

    The lack of coverage of this war makes me incredibly angry. It is sure to rage on longer and longer so long as Americans are not presented with the reality of it all. A picture is worth a thousand words, it has been said.

    Thank you for posting this. As usual, you do an amazing job of bringing up the truth. I am to the point where reading blogs feels like the only thing that connects me to it.

    Homeyra, have you seen the James Longley documentary Iraq in Fragments?

    I just saw it tonight … How can something be “right” and yet, “unfair”? That’s what I thought of it.

    But I think too much! It was a good film.
