The Daily Dead: Again and Again

Bomb kills 4 U.S. troops in Afghanistan
KABUL, Afghanistan (CNN) -- Four U.S. service members died in a roadside bombing attack, and two civilians were killed in crossfire during a military operation, military authorities in Afghanistan said Friday.

The bomb attack occurred Thursday in the southern part of the country, but the precise location was not available. Two troops died at the scene and two died later of wounds.

In Ghazni province Friday, a woman and a school-age girl were killed in crossfire during a raid by security forces against militants, according to NATO's International Security Assistance Force.

Such civilian deaths during the Afghan war have heightened grass-roots anger against international and Afghan forces, and those forces have worked to stop such fatalities.

"Afghanistan continues to be a dangerous place, and we are genuinely sorry when any Afghan civilians are killed," said Col. Wayne Shanks, a spokesman for ISAF." {more}

Photos and videos of casualties will be further restricted. Keeping them nameless and faceless until they arrive back home in a box is an attempt to hide the horrors of this illegal conflict that is a war crime.
The U.S. military command in eastern Afghanistan on Thursday imposed a new ban on publication of photographs taken by embedded journalists that identify American war casualties.

The restriction is outlined in ground rules for reporters embedded with U.S. forces battling Taliban insurgents in eastern Afghanistan along the Pakistani border. The new rules say that "media will not be prohibited from viewing or filming
casualties; however, casualty photographs showing recognizable face, nametag or other identifying feature or item will not be published."

The new rules mark a change from a broader rule issued Sept. 30 that said, "Media will not be allowed to photograph or record video of U.S. personnel killed in action." {more}

The rhetoric from Israel and the U.S. on the 'necessity' of stopping Iran continues daily.

What Do You Believe? has put together a pictorial of some of those in Iran who the psychopaths of war have no qualms of killing.

Are we going to allow it?
