kevin sites has to be the lowest of the low, a traitor for sure,only breathing right now because of our brave soldiers who he surely hates.

Am I supposed to feel sorry for these guys?

Go sell the guilt and pity to Opra. I took out my share of NVA communists during the Tet Offensive in Vietnam, and wish I was young enough to also send some Iraqi "insurgents" to God--you know, for their divine reward.

What about "imagesagainstunprovokedwar", you moral dwarves.


Tom Fitzpatrick

Sites is an enemy collaborator. As usual, another half-bright student became a journalist and now thinks he is a judge on high with moral superiority over the great unwashed masses, whom he has been ordained to enlighten. Puh-lease, Mr. Coward, go back to Pisssomemore Beach or wherever it was you crawled out of.

Good luck riding along with our troops now....you're going to need it.



Ever stop and think about this....that iraqi was faking for a reason. To deceive...But, why deceive? What's the root reason we deceive? We're trying to hide something! What do you think he was trying to hide? Could it be the fact that he'd been shooting at those troops minutes before? Hmmmm?



You're lucky you're alive! You could have easily been taken out by that terrorist, had it not been for that brave Marine! Like it or not, you've most likely got him to thank for the rest of your miserable life!



May you live to regret this decision....

What is your point in doing this? We all know the horrors of war and its imperfections. The USA and its Allies were forced to defend ourselves againts unscrupulous/vicious men like Sadam,Arafat,Zarqowi and Osama. Are you seeking to discourage those who are protecting the free world and liberating the Iraqis? What is your point?

Keep in mind that this is the behavior from the terrorists that you are defending:

Mujahidin terrorised Fallujah, residents say

By Times Online and AFP in Fallujah







Mutilated bodies dumped on Fallujah's bombed out streets today painted a harrowing picture of eight months of rebel rule.







As US and Iraqi troops mopped up the last vestiges of resistance in the city after a week of bombardment and fighting, residents who stayed on through last week's offensive were emerging and telling harrowing tales of the brutality they endured.



Flyposters still litter the walls bearing all manner of decrees from insurgent commanders, to be heeded on pain of death. Amid the rubble of the main shopping street, one decree bearing the insurgents' insignia - two Kalashnikovs propped together - and dated November 1 gives vendors three days to remove nine market stalls from outside the city's library or face execution.



The pretext given is that the rebels wanted to convert the building into a headquarters for the "Mujahidin Advisory Council" through which they ran the city.



Another poster in the ruins of the souk bears testament to the strict brand of Sunni Islam imposed by the council, fronted by hardline cleric Abdullah Junabi. The decree warns all women that they must cover up from head to toe outdoors, or face execution by the armed militants who controlled the streets.



Two female bodies found yesterday suggest such threats were far from idle. An Arab woman, in a violet nightdress, lay in a post-mortem embrace with a male corpse in the middle of the street. Both bodies had died from bullets to the head.

Not to belabor the point, but your pictures show one side -- how about the other? How about a beheading of a western hostage? How about a group of Iraqi's waving a white flag then opening up fire?

Mr Sites-

You are perhaps the lowest of low. This marine that you filmed shooting a Iraqi terrorist was not only fighting for the Iraqi people, but since you are in Iraq, he is fighting for your life. Perhaps you might have noticed the kidnappings and killings that are taking place in Iraq. So if it was not for these brave men, one you would not have a story, and two might have possibly been taken hostage. I find it amazing that you would rather trash a brave solider than report about the good that is taking place there. Shame on you and all your journalistic cronies!!! Here is a novel idea, instead of trashing our brave soliders who are risking theirs lives, why not film some footage of the good they are doing over there... By the way it is a good thing you are not in Texas because you deserve a good old fashion WHOOPIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Kelethian
17.11.2004

Mr. Sites.

I note that you believe John kerry deserves a Silver Star for shooting a child in in Vietnam, yet you would hang a soldier out to dry because a terrorist was faking being wounded as the terrorists have done before.

Do note the fake 'surrenders' they've done before in an effort to kill as many soldiers as possible.

Perhaps you would like to personally check supposed wounded terrorists for weapons next time one says he's hurt?



Keep in mind that the terrorists are NOT your friends and would love to kill you in teh name of Alla regardless of how well you sympathise with their cause.

These are fascinating pictures.



Are there any photos of the limbless, disemboweled, eviscerated body of Margaret Hassan, who made the fatal mistake of trying to bring humanitarian aid in the midst of a thugocracy? But this is "imagesagainstwar.com" and not "imagesagainstislamofascism.com"



Good luck on your artful project, and enjoy your many latte-filled gallery receptions. It's always easy and profitable to score publicity on the sufferings of others.

Where are your 'artistic photos' of the thousands of Black Africans being slaughtered in the Darfur region of the Sudan by Arab Fascist?



How come your photos are consider artistry, but the photos of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi lives tortured under Saddam are censored?



I have seen photos of the cutting of tongues, chopping off of hands, beatings, electrical torture, beheadings, etc. etc. etc. Why do you not post these photos?

Is there ay chance to put some of this stuff on billboards, so people can see it, driving on the highways, or are billboards as controlled as national television. How can we get the point accross?

Es ist einfach nicht zu glauben das ein Kriegs-Tyrann wie Bush noch so oft gewählt wird.

Eine Schande für Amerika, schlimmer kann es doch nicht mehr werden was man spätestens bei dem Film von Michael Moore gesehen hat.



I can't believe that so much poeple vote for George Bush. When you see the film from Micheal Moore you see which monster you choose!!!!!!

Dear Tina



Your other email address failed so resending this:



Very nice to meet you in Arles.



One of the things which came out of my visit was the idea of making a

publication / exhibition and drawing upon my collection of images of war

memorials in France, the Berlin Wall in 1984 and recent images from

Liverpool in combination with other images from different projects to

create a subtle but moving narrative.



It's difficult to find a short form of words to express a title or mission

statement at present. I am hoping the effect will be something emotionally

charged. So, I am not sure if a commercial publishers would be interested.



I have a large collection of the original Berlin prints with the Barbara

Gross Gallerie in Munich, I left them with her years ago thinking she might

be able to sell them but she hasn't. I will contact her and ask for them

back.



Today, I will post you a copy of Cross Currents.



best wishes



John
