Is it right to keep the media from reporting the terrible, unromantic part of war? Shouldn't we insist that the American people see the price being paid by servicemen for the decisions made by leadership both on and off the battlefield, both civilian and military?
I don't know the answer.
All I can think is that's someone's little boy...someone's brother...someone's loved one. Does their grief outweigh the public's right to know the unvarnished truth about war?
Would we be involved in a decade plus long war if the American people got a glimpse of images like you see above? Would military leaders be shoveling the bullshit of it taking another 2 or more decades to win this war if these images were widely available?
I just don't fucking know.
