The pictures from Britain show how a nation can honor the war-dead, and also focus like a laser-beam on the folly of war. All at the same time.
These pictures do not beat around the bush. No hiding the results of war as President Bush did while he was in office. War has a steep price, and the nation’s people have a right to see what they signed onto when waging one.
Thank you President Obama for changing the Bush policy on this matter, and allowing photos of the flag draped coffins at Andrews Air Force Base to be able to be seen by the world.
Enough said. The pictures from Britain say the rest.
