Yes, as Chris says, people in both US and UK are too sheltered from the horrors of war. i also find that many of of my friends in Taiwan who don't like any war get the impression from mainstream media that the war is just ok. such an impression prevents them from doing things they orignally believe in or want to do. the media may have let us know exactly how many people are killed and how many people are injured. but this says nothing about war, this is just a science of statistics. emir ----- Original Message ----- 寄件者: Tcapj@aol.com 收件者: firstname.lastname@example.org 傳送日期: 2003年4月1日 AM 06:03 主旨: Re: [casi] Images from Iraq..

The troops and the media use clinical terms which pretend killings are ok. On peace ,marches recently, I think the most effective placards have been of slaughter. Of course, it is stomach churning but isn't it necessary? The people must not be protected from the sheer horrors of what is being done in their name.
