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????

Who owns and/or sponsors Reuters?

Perhaps it was result of a bio or chem bomb?

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.

Judging from the story, it's not even clear that these are Americans.

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.

Already got it wrong they are US Marines.

The Marines are not going to take very kindly to taking these photos.

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.

I hope that the families of these fallen troops will sue their butts off.

Get over it, people.

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.

Don't be dumbfounded. Reuters is the propaganda ministry of leftists and muslim terrorists alike.

If you support a terrorist, or harbor a terrorist, you ARE a terrorist. This supports terrorists.

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.

(grumbling loudly)

There is a fine line between reporting news events, and propagandizing them. This is the second....

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Brig. Gen. Mark Kimmitt confirmed Monday that four U.S. service members were killed in the Sunni Muslim stronghold of Ramadi.

Videotape delivered to Associated Press Television News showed the four, still in uniform, lying dead near what appeared to be a walled compound.

Kimmitt, the deputy chief of operations, told reporters at a briefing in Baghdad, the capital, that the servicemen were conducting operations in Ramadi, and a search was launched when they failed to check in at an appointed time.

He declined further comment until the families of the dead could be notified.
