"The pictures are what will stop the war", Brian De Palma
Thank you to BlueGal at Crooks and Liars for posting my video "Right to Life", on their site.
Ken Burn's documentary on WWII, "The War", had some of the first horrific images of that war that have ever been broadcast. He and directors like Brian De Palma with "Redacted", are breaking the rules because we need to know that war is hell. Bush wouldn't know this. Neither would Cheney. That's why sending Americans to die in their war is so easy for them.
And that's why we need intelligent, compassionate leadership.
I made the video over a year ago, because I think there is such a disconnect between what war supporters believe and reality. The networks refuse to show us what our tax dollars are paying for in Iraq. If they broadcast the mangled bodies of innocent dead children and our dead soldiers, this war would be over and companies like Cheney's Halliburton would lose money. So corporate media shuts its eyes and ours.
