These photos have to be seen to be believed. They are the collection of AP photos from Arab photographers in the Middle East that recently won the Pulitzer Prize. Every single one shows either: (1) triumphant terrorists, (2) defeated or exhausted Americans, (3) Arabs angry at Americans for something, or (4) Abu Ghirab.
Seriously, you have to look at the page. Here is the Link. Send this page to a friend.
Treason? Maybe, maybe not. But the Associated Press has definitively marked itself as Al Qaeda's official publicists.
my fav also. very good pictures on that site.
Those are powerful images showing people what kind of sacrifice the troops are making. The pics of the bodies hanging from the bridge are among the most poignant of the lot, showing what sort of monstrous things the enemy was capable of. And all the more meaningful considering the recent change of direction from bad to good in Iraq since the elections.
They look like pictures of men at war to me. Nothing particularly pro or anti about them.
In the picture of the soldier leading the prisoner ... What is that strapped around his lower left ankle? Any ideas?
I am pretty sure they are kneepads used if the soldier has to crawl around or drop to one knee for shooting or defense.
Thanks. Makes sense.
I too have to say some seemed not to be "anti" at all. I am thinking of any photographer in a war zone and they take pictures of what's there at that moment. And these are moving in different ways.
It should read:
"Fallujah - A U.S. Marine leads an Iraqi
prisoner terrorist during fighting in the center of the city. "
Right. So, which were your favorites according to your "realistic" tastes, the tiny child in the coffin who was murdered by the Americans, or the election worker being murdered in the street for the sole purpose of having the Arab AP stringer take a picture of his murder to broadcast to the world?
I understand it's a hard choice. War is ugly, after all.
I like that one, as well. But you understand that the picture and the other showing the guy at Abu Ghirab aren't intended for audiences that apporove of the imprisonment of terrorists. They're designed to give the impression of American domination of Iraqis and brutal treatment of prisoners. I don't agree that they are evidence of such, but that's what they were meant to do.
Two questions about the dove shot. Is the dove actually a message carrier? I asked because the black band doesn't look quite right, not does the neck of the bird.
But all bird messages I know of were carried in tiny capsules attached to the leg of the bird.
well i must ask what is your point of posting these photos?
1) i'm surprised the 18 month old wasn't killed at a wedding celebration. (happens alot in iraq i hear.
2)i'm disheartened that any fat b@@@ard al sadr scum are still walking around
3) why were they in abu ghrab in the 1st place?
these are ap propagada photos.
i wish no child was ever killed in this conflict. i'm not making excuses for what may or may not have happened.
i'm just curious that no photos are ever included that shows what great things our brave troops are doing.
He should get Ellenor Clift to show him how to starp them on, or Chris Black, or George Stephenopolis, or Sid Gildenhorn, or Julian Epstain, or Peter Jennings, Tom Brokaw, Wolf Blitzer and especially Dan "Forge On" Rather.
That is indeed an awsome photo. Prayers Ping.
