So it begins...the endless trail of photos to portray the horrors. Where are the photos depicting all the good news out of Iraq?

No blood on the ground, not wearing their equipment, no bullet marks nearby - looks like they were dumped there as a PR ploy for the foreign press????

This pleases Kerry and his team. They would love to have the networks keep a running tally of war dead in the lower right hand corner of our TV screens....like the running stock ticker. When the number hits 1,000...watch out.

The alphabet channels and AP/Reuters will show these images, but refused to play the Berg beheading?

This has gone beyond the pale. Reuters needs to get a grip, their hate for the President and the United States is evident in their willing cooperation to post these photos.

This is an editorial decision that is clearly purposeful.

I am seething right now.

Something wrong here. No US Marine would allow these guys to take those photos. Just when did Reuters take the photos? Judging from some of the media I would not be surprised if they witnessed their deaths.

Reuters had a few photos of dead US soldiers online last week, too.

The media are probably collecting them to stream out after Abu Ghraib has been completely, utterly, absolutely, exhausted.

Just another case against the "religion of peace" anybody else see the blood trails??? they were shot in the head...they had their body armor probably stolen from them as well....May god bless their souls and TOTAL DEATH TO ISLAM.....this is one case i don't care what Our commander in chief says....Islam is NOT the religion of peace....these photos are absolutely sickening...our "news" media and i use that term loosely, should absolutely be ashamed of themselves and in some instances could very rightly be charged with treason....just my two cents...may god bless our troops and all of the American citizens who have lost their lives to these SAVAGE animals . May God Bless the United States of America.

This will only backfire anyway. We need to see this stuff. Show us everything. Show us the people turned into tomatoes from jumping out of the World Trade Center towers. Show both sides of everything, so America can understand what this war is all about.

You know, I think you are right.

Hold up a picture of this and let people know that these brave young men are dead, but they died trying to actually make the world a safer place.

Every reporter always talks about making a difference in the world, but our brave men and women of the military are actually making a difference, something that the members of the press would never be able to do. They can just write about it...and be complicit in our enemies propoganda.

We don't need both sides from the Media. Intelligent people can make up their own minds. I suppose that Liberals will use pictures like these against America, but that is what they always do. The American public needs to see the truth about war, so we can learn to deal with it correctly like we did back in WWII. We are a pampered society. If we had seen dead bodies from 911, a number of Americans would have supported nuking Afghanistan.

Reuters is a long time adversary of anything standing in the way of globalism. It is mostly controlled by the British left but has fallen recently on hard times as an ongoing business.

When the number hits 1,000...watch out.

There will be more than one "1000" celebration by the media.

Last week I noted CNN using a 950 plus number. Then I realized they're counting all coalition deaths to get there faster.

They have no shame.

In reality there have been just over 500 combat deaths btwn Iraq and Afghanistan, I think.

Of course we've had many more murders here in LA where I am in the same time period. I guess that makes LA a combat zone.

They also conspired, openly, to censor graphic 911 images and then (again, by mutual agreement) eliminated all 911 images a few weeks after the attack. The effect of the footage and stills was deemed to be too inflammatory for the public...

There is no question that our media lies and propagandizes for leftist aims. The question is: 'How effective are they, and what degree of power do they actually wield?'

Yeah this does not pass the smell test. Also the confirmation by Al-Queda of the death of the terrorist leader that beheaded the American contractor does not smell right either.

The terrorists know well the value of propaganda.

They won't do this and you and I both know it. Our common enemy fights from newsrooms across the nation as well as from ambushes in Iraq.

Reuters is apparently based out of the UK.

Their main stockholder was/is a very wealthy Opecker Prince from Saudi Land.

About 9/13/2001, the minions of Reuters were banned from using the word terrorist when it came to Islamo terrorists and their vile Islamo terrorist acts.

Here is my take on this if these pictures are dead Americans.

The Reuters Photographer is a pro Islamofascist, and he/she/it was invited to the ambush of these Americans.

After the Americans were ambushed/killed, their bodies were arranged in the same manner to take the picture.

It is time that some spec ops guy take this Reuters clymer and his immediate supervisors on a final picture taking mission. After their job is done, use their cameras to take pictures of the dead Reuters Islamo$hits. Then put those final Reuters's pictures on the Arabic internet sites the Islamofascists use, with just this comment: "Who's Next!"

Agreed. War shouldn't be whitewashed. The American people should see what is going on in Iraq, warts and all.

What are people on this board afraid of? That the American public can't handle the truth?

Not a surprise because Reuters, AFP, AP reporters usually are Arab in that part of the world. They are the embedded reporters of the terrorists and the radicals. They are quite often traveling with the terrorists, thus can be first on the scene to photographs the dead US soldiers. And beam them to the Arab world (via Al Jezeera etc.)  to convey the terrorists triumph.

I know this is cliche'-like, but we cannot win this war one patrol at a time. We won the battle of Hue (at a terrible price) this way, but of course not the war. If this is true, it's a despicable waste of our wonderful Marines.
