  • Frontline world did a documentary on journalists reporting in Iraq. It's worth a look.

  • Interesting that this cartoonist chose to show beheadings. We've seen several real beheadings lately. I think those who cut off heads chant something like "allahu akbar". Perhaps they're evangelical christians.

  • Good point Anonymous !
    Perhaps the cartoonist should have shown torture, rape and perverted sexual games in Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo.

    Plenty of good christian soldiers there !

  • well i don't think that you can link the Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo history with christians. (theres no celebrations in the streets of new york when they show the footage). thats soldiers following orders.
    those orders come from arguably the most poweful man but very likely the stupidest man in the world bush.
    i'm pretty much as close to aetheist as u can (my mum's christian), but i cringe when i hear whats done to people in those places (includign david hicks, who may be a taliban terrorist, but deserves a fair trial, or should be let go).i can't vote bush out, but i can vote john howard out.
    but cutting off heads..hows that not just purely cruel (ignore the fact that some of those people are women and some are not soldiers or anything like that). many soldiers kill, but most don't do it in the sickest way they can think of. even if they think its in gods name
