  1. A poll...was the printing of the picture appalling?
    My vote is no, it was not. Semper Fi my brother.

  2. Perhaps to his family. God bless these men.
  3. the public needs to see. war should not be sugar coated.
  4. His father, a former Marine, requested in NOT be shown. Seems to me we should respect that.

    What if your Mother was raped and killed. Should the AP run that so we know the true nature of the crime.

    No one asks you to serve anymore. No one forces it on anyone. Seems to me we should respect their wishes.
  5. No, it should not have been shown. But the AP ceased to be a responsible news organization decades ago. Now it is basically a subsidiary of moveon.org.

    Family gets a veto.

    Otherwise, show it.

    War is totally sanitized in America. To prosecute more War.

    If the limp-wristed flag-wavers actually saw what their hands made on the battlefield, they'd lose stomach for it.
  7. i would agree that the family gets a veto on identity and even a blocking of the face but the picture should be shown.
