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.

Limbaugh was making the point today on his radio that staged photos were as big a concern as the doctored variety.

All but the bottom one seem awwwffuuullll clean given they are in a pile of rubble.

PLEASE let's start a campaign when these scumbags start with the staged phony photos. Does LGF have these pictures?

Notice how in each picture, the only items that show no signs of having been in the blast are the toys, which are in pristine condition and were obviously planted. And the holier-than-thou, smarter-than-you MSM falls for this crap! Over and over!

Isn't it odd that none of the stuffed toys are burned, soot-stained or even dusty?

More amazing is such an AMERICAN symbol as Mickey Mouse being there.

I was a reporter myself, and this is one horror story from my front lines: I knew of a photographer who carried a child's shoe with him so he could strategically place it in a photo of a car accident to give it extra pathos. That was on a small weekly paper in the Northwest; doctoring photos in the Middle East doesn't surprise me one bit.

At least Micky and Minnie look like they were dropped into the frame. The Tiger looks like some kid was playing with 30 seconds before the pic was taken.

What gay toys. I'd feel a whole lot worse if there were cool toys, like one of those Power Rangers Jeeps that shoot the real rockets and have the lights that go on and stuff. Those kids look like real dorks.

Doubt it is his apartment, and he certainly he wouldn't save a teletubbie without prompting!
