    Because conservatives insist on suppression of free speech, and they are trying to make the public believe that War Is Good.

    Are you seriously insisting that the people who are ultimately responsible for a war shouldn't know what war is all about?

    Images of war are shown to the public because in order to make a rational justification of that war the consequences must be known. It is true that sometimes the cost of war is justified, but in a democracy it is up to the public to determine that justification.

    What's wrong with it? We shouldn't fear freedom, especially since the conservatives evidently think they invented it. This isn't a conservative or liberal issue, it's an American one.

    If you think this is bad, you should've been around during the Vietnam War. Everyday you'd have classic photos of guys with their heads shot off, and it wasn't shameful to show film of American-draped coffins coming back home.

    It's the harsh reality of war. If you don't like it, stop the war!

    Because the American public has a right to know, and how can we act lik we are a war and not even want to see what it looks like. So, you go stick your head in th sand and pretend it is not happening or even beter we can make a movie about a war so it will hae a nice ending.

    They should.People need to see.

    Your argument is very despotic

    centralized media control type thinking.

    Just like present day Iran,Syria,North Korea.

    We showed pictures of our boys in LIFE dead on the

    atolls of the Pacific in WWII. FDR said that it was

    important for average Americans to know to what

    degree

    the sacrifices the soldiers were making for their

    country without rose colored glasses (so to speak).

    they are only showing the images that make the war look bad.

    If the American public could really see what's has happened over there, they would be proud to be an American.

    Wishful thinking I suppose

    Because if you show fluff while there's a war going on, it tends to make you appear biased.
