Abu Ghraib Images Spark Debate


Again?

A decision by an Australian television network to release more images of detainee abuse at Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison has set off a debate over the willingness of many media organizations to carry the gruesome pictures when they chose not to publish controversial cartoons depicting Mohammed.

Man, we are really, really just trying to get the Middle Easterners to self-destruct aren't we. Can we go one fucking day without the media publishing something to piss off the Muslims? If these people get any angrier they are going to reach a new step in human evolution and become beings of pure energy and then we're all fucked.

Seriously, whats the point of selling more newspapers if the outcome is a car bomb in the parking deck?

In explaining their decision not to reproduce the cartoons -- blamed for protests and violence in a number of Muslim countries -- some media representatives argued that doing so would unnecessarily inflame an already tense situation.

But that would be pointed at Australia, this is more pointed at Americans and British so that's okay. You guys are greedy little shits.

"Despite the currently overheated international climate, we are showing them because they show the extent of the horror that occurred at Abu Ghraib," Dateline host George Negus said in introducing the segment.

Oh, the naked human pyramid and the dog-chained insurgent weren't horrible enough? Can we just have our war without the visual aids please?
