Subject: Photos That will NEVER Make the News

Please pass the pictures on. Sometimes in our everyday lives we tend to forget what’s going on elsewhere in the world and that the brave men and women of the service are just like you and I. They have family and friends back home who love them very much and are praying for their safe return.
PLEASE KEEP THIS GOING EVEN IF YOU HAVE PASSED IT ON BEFORE
When you receive this, please stop for a moment and say a prayer for our troops and the people in Afghanistan, Kuwait, Iraq, and all around the world. There is nothing attached……. This can be very powerful……Just send this to people in your address book. Do not stop the wheel, please….
Of all the gifts you could give to support peace, Prayer is the very best one…..

Not to be a wiseass, but did you notice “AP”, “Reuters” and “AFP” at the bottom of all but one of the photos? I suppose that the tiny text would be easy to miss, but it’s there, and it indicates that the photos all come from news agencies, so by definition they all made the news - they all had to be released by the news agencies at one point or another.

If you would like to argue about the media, perhaps we could argue that the media isn’t showing enough images like these:

I have a strong stomach. Even though I believe strongly that the reasons that we went to Iraq were at best hasty and at worst outright lies, I understand that we are killing people for a reason.

When we deposed Saddam Hussein we removed a murderous, evil madman. Unfortunately for us, he did not have ties to Al Qaeda. He also didn’t have any weapons of mass destruction. Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. Iraq had little to do with Islamic terrorists. Iraq was a secular state. Muslims did not like Iraq’s leadership because they were not religious.

Now we have unleashed upon the world a country friendly to muslim extremists. Oh yeah, the top brass didn’t make “securing munitions” a high priority so now the extremists are armed. Thanks a lot.

Okay, maybe I was being a wiseass.
