The Passion of the Toys [More photos from Beirut]

The Passion of the Toys

In Platoon, Oliver Stone said the first casualty of war is innocence.

He was wrong.

As the photos here show, the first casualties of war are...the symbols of innocence. And photographers from Reuters and the AP just happened upon many of these perfectly placed symbols of war's horrors.

This last one is the only one that seems...untouched.

Feel the pathos. Mourn for these oh-so-photogenic and suspiciously dust-free trinkets of childhood.

Just don't ask any questions about their veracity.

That would be wrong.

When one of those guys is pictured recovering an Easy Bake Oven that's when my tears will fall......

What I miss seeing is all the toy guns, toy bombs, toy suicide belts...

What would make me cry would be a ST:TOS Original Bridge Set, with Spin Action Transporter.

Wow, not a speck of dust on that Minnie Mouse doll. Well, at least we know what the "photojournalists" mean when they say they were just removing the dust and scratches. ; D.

So how come nothing ever falls on the toys?

I don't know, but if I'm ever stuck near a terrorist...I'm hanging out with the toys.

HEY, look at what he's got in his left hand!

Isn't that the very same Minnie Mouse as in the picture at the top of this thread?!

They also look VERY western. Does anyone know if that is common in this area?

Here's another staged photo:

(not hot-linkable -- Corbis photo)

Notice the rocks placed "just so" -- one large one under it, two in from of it -- so as to prop up the undusted, undamaged photo perfectly for the camera.

PajamaTruthMafia is playing with you.

Shows how easy this product is to manipulate.

Probably one in every major Hezzie villiage. I would not doubt that some of the double as them Local Cooter, too.

If he can't rent or sell a replacement, he'll fall back to fixing what ails...for the right price.

If you people keep up this atrocious debunking of our stories and photographs, you will force us to amend the copyright laws, to exclude any "fair use" or discussion, except by qualified journalists

Shermy, I think what HKMk23 is saying is that your post #19 pic shows the guy carrying the same Minnie Mouse as in Post #1. Check his left hand...2 toys... purple cow and what could be a Minnie Mouse
