Skip to comments.Morford: Very, Very Dirty Pictures
Posted on 12/03/2004 7:37:58 AM PST by presidio9
This is what you won't see in the paper. This is what you won't see on CNN or on MSNBC or CBS News or on any major media Web site anywhere and especially no goddamn way ever in hell will you see it within a thousand miles of Fox News.
You aren't supposed to see. You aren't supposed to know. You are to remain ignorant and shielded, and, if you're like most Americans, you have been very carefully conditioned to think Bush's nasty Iraq war is merely this ugly little firecracker-like thing happening way, way over there, carefully orchestrated and somewhat messy and maybe a little bloody but mostly still patriotic and good and necessary and sponsored by none other than God his own angry Republican self.
Or maybe you think war is manly and heroic and cool, as exemplified by that now-famous shot of that macho "Dogface" Marlboro-smokin' Marine whose dirt-encrusted mug was eagerly picked up by newspapers and media Web sites across the nation (including this one), and he became an instant icon for the war and the military was positively giddy about using him an ideal recruitment tool, a model of how to make soldiers look all studly and rugged and badass as opposed to the often poorly educated, disposable hunks of politically abused postpubescent meat
So then. Here is your uncensored truth: fallujahinpictures.com. Real pictures from Fallujah. Real pictures of war. Brutal and explicit and shocking and just one site of many. Be warned: this is very graphic content. Horrific and deeply disturbing. No censorship. No suppression. No Photoshop. No bogus shots of happy Iraqi children running in the streets begging for candy from American soldiers. No night shots of Marines in bitchin' night-vision goggles bustin' down the door of some palace and then cheering.

Mr. Morford has not been getting enough in the backdoor, it seems.
I think I'll skip looking at the pictures.
Whoopdidoo. I looked at the pictures. Doesn't change my mind about anything.
Morford is a self loathing homosexual who epitomizes the psychological term of projection.
Victimhood, all the ills of the world are America's fault. Screwed up thinking.
War sucks, M. I've been to that website. The pictures are awful. But guess what? The people chewed up in shredders had it really bad as well.
What a pansyassed bitch. This is a classic hate america first.
How about showing some pictures of the tourture and execution chambers that were found or some of the weapons caches.
The only reason this hysterical woman has a column is because he's a gay male and the newspaper needed to "diversify."
No, I don't know this for fact, however, I think this article strongly supports this theory.
I looked at the pictures as well. AND....?
Marines aren't Dogfaces, we are Devildogs......
I sincerely doubt that hiring a fag in San Francisco qualifies as diversification.
Morford is simply suffering from the Arafat Syndrome (oxygen starvation of the brain)...
I did look at the pictures and all the dead body pictures are of Iraqis killed by the "insurgents" (read: terrorists), to which I remark, BIG WHOOP!
I just emailed the little turd.
Hmm, you know, this is a good point.
Perhaps this is the SF Chronicles answer to Eleanor Clift? Same shrill manner, only in print.
It must be difficult to write while hyperventilating and swooning. Someone get Mark's smelling salts.
People get killed in a war, this is something new him?
Don't confuse her with facts. Just because the pictures are of terrorism against Iraqis doesn't mean it isn't somehow our fault. Eventually everything leads back to oil. Isn't liberalism great?
Dang. If there were pictures of dead terrorists, I might be tempted. I'll never see enough of those.
new him = new to him
The he/she can be emailed at:
It would be a great surprise to most soldiers to find they were disposable hunks of politically abused postpubescent meat, but Morford would know more about abusing meat than I.
Perhaps Morford should spend some tim looking at the mass graves? Far fewer are dying now on a bad day than on a good day under Sunni rule.
Technically, he's a "turd burglar," not an actual turd.
Typical DUmmy propaganda that got them where they are now after the last elections. Keep it up folks! Help us expand our majorities further! :)
Sorry. I stand corrected. I referred to him as a whiney bed wetter in the email.
They look no better or worse than the film still aired on every account of holocaust events that I see regularly on History Chanel. It's called war and it's why you think long and hard before you permit your country to become home-away from-home for murdering thugs who care so little about their own lives and futures that of course, your life and future become incidental. Iraqis did not clean their own toilet for 30 years, now, someone else will do it for them because the stench reached WEST.
He/she probably wouldn't be complaining if the troops were fighting for what they term, "gay rights".
Don't be too hard on Ms. Morford. He's probably having his monthly visitor problems right now.
Exactly. What is so pathetic about this is this guy, probably knowingly, is working to undermine America's resolve so that those sort of pictures will be taken here instead of there. One need only read what the opposition says in their strategy on the war to realize this. The only way they hope to win is by undermining the resolve of the American people through the 5th column media in this country.
A person must truly hate America for them to push this viewpoint... but that is the view of the left.
It changed me.
I now have a better appreciation of the awesome ass-kicking our boys are putting on the terrorists. Dead terrorists everywhere!!
What do you wanna bet the little turd burglar was all for Clinton's wars in the Balkans (that had NOTHING to do with our security, and EVERYTHING to do with covering the 'toon's @ss).
You'll never get any liberal to admit a linkage between 9/11 and Iraq, so it doesn't matter that your pictures are far "dirtier" than Morford's.
Somehow I don't think he would have bothered pointing out the pictures of dead Serbs that his hero Billy-Boy killed with his criminal bombing of Belgrade.
This guy is a pathetic excuse for a human being. Yep, war is bad you dumba**, but so is having your head cutoff simply because you are an American. I feel bad for people like this who just don't get it. There is nothing we can do but kill these terrorists. Putting our heads in the sand will not make them go away. We did not ask for this war, but we will fight and we will win. God bless our troops and W!
That Pervert has "issues" And an agenda.
So who give a rat's hairy @$$? Sometimes, war is necessary, because the alternative is worse.
Were you there, morford, when they were pulling dead bodies out of the wreckage Pentagon?
Were you there, morford, when they were pulling dead bodies out of the wreckage of the World Trade Center?
Were you there, morford, when they were jumping off the top floor of the World Trade Center to avoid burning to death?
Were you there, morford, when they were pulling dead bodies out of the USS Cole?
Were you there, morford, when they were pulling dead bodies out of the wreckage of the Khobar Towers?
Were you there, morford, when they were pulling dead bodies out of the wreckage of the Murrah Building?
Were you there, morford, when they were pulling dead bodies out of the wreckage of the USMC barracks in Beirut?
Do you, morford, like to revel in pictures of these things?
The islamic fanatics you so love, morford, will continue to create these scenes of devastation until we put an end to them. As we are currently doing in Iraq. I know you lurk here, morford, you puling pusillanimous pansy. Why don't you try addressing these questions in your next column? If you have the balls to do it, that is.
I don't want to know how you obtained that information.
I'm fairly certain the little poofter lurks on this forum ...
"There are NEVER comparative images of Iraq under Saddam when tens of thousands were brutalized "
Wow - you're not looking hard enough! I've seen some pretty intense, graphic images and mpgs at consumptionjunction.com of Iraqis being tortured.
That said, war is hell and the images this Morford tool links to are nothing unexpected.
Thank you for the link to the pictures, they are very humbling to say the least. I only wish the woman who wrote the article would have posted some of the thousands of pictures of Saddam's torture. Let's keep things in context freak. Thanks to our military and their family's for the sacrifices they make.
when you cry...
no one sees your tears.
when you are in pain...
no one sees your hurt.
when you are worried...
no one sees your stress.
when you are happy...
no one sees your smile.
But FART!! just ONE time...
And everybody knows!!
Boy, she stinks!
The gritty details of obtaining HUMINT are usually best left out of the intelligence briefing.
What about shots of happy Iraqi children flying kites? No wait. They were in Moore's movie. Those shots are perfectly acceptable.
