i for one don't have a problem with them showing caskets... it's a fact of war. but i can most certainly see why family members of the victims would have a serious objection to it.
Can you please indicate who all those people are in those caskets? As harrowing as the images are, the picture is quite anonymous. They do not identify specific persons.

I have burried a few family members myself. Still, I have no problem if someone shows a casket (or even their actual casket) since there are no identifying features on it.

C ya!

sad but true

the shock over here only has to do with the idea that "this could also happen to us now"

no matter how cruel it sounds in the end it doesn't matter whether it's Hutsi's vs Tutsi's, catholics vs protestants or Al-Qaeda vs USA

i'm really getting tired of this argument... the reason being... i'm not trying to argue. I, me, myself... have no problem what-so-ever with these pictures being printed in the newspapers, on the internet, or show on TV. if it were a relative or a close friend of mine in one of those caskets, i may not be happy about it and i'd try to avoid the pictures, but i certainly wouldn't object to the press' rights to use the pictures. the only thing i said is that i could see why relatives of the dead soldiers may object. not that i personally object, but that i could see the reasoning behind the objections.

why would these pictures be any more objectional than, say, this picture...

... which was plastered all over the british press and i'm sure many u2 fan sties.

i myself have no problem with that picture being printed... but i could see why bono might have an objection. hopefully i've finally gotten my point across. i'm not arguing with you here... i'm agreeing.
