    Now I think I understand what that other post was about. Stickseler, now I know why you got so pissed, I thought they were talking about civilian injuries, I didn't know those were our guys.

    I'm exploding with terrible things to say right now. Knowing I'll launch a million-reply debate is stoipping me from spewing them.

    Yeah. I thougt he was bitching about us hitting civilian targets and those pics were civilians. I had no idea they were coalition POW's, now KIA's.

    No, the link he had in his post was to a website with pics of captured and dead American soldiers. That is why everyone got so pissed. I PM'ed Steve, Grim and Jeff to get that scumbags link out. It is totally disrespectful to the soldiers families to have that crap posted, and this is definitly not the place for it. I am glad that [censored] got canned.

    I can only imagine what is on that video- I was just watching MSNBC and they were stating WHY they refuse to show the video...other broadcast stations have played it, but MSNBC refuses

    Why are people so enthralled with something like that?? Do these agencies think that'll boost viewers? These are our countrymen, for cristmas sake. Why is any news agency relaying that?? Why did they even get a tape of it?? Good for MSNBC not showing it, Microsoft got something morally right, even if only by association.
    I can't even get into my thoughts on Al Jezeera and the region...

    This network is a tool of our enemies and I can't understand why we don't take them out.

    I started looking through that site.... it was the worst thing I have ever seen anywhere. I won't even tell you what I saw. I was sick to my stomach and actually had to go out for a walk to calm myself down... /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    CNN showed it this morning, but they got kicked out of Baghdad and are desperate...as far as I know, FOX has not shown the video and refuses to. CNN kind of said, "we were asked not to, but we're going to anyway". I'll not be watching them anymore.
