posted to me by my nephew (u.s. marine himself) so some of you across the pond may have seen this. Is this the unacceptable face of war for the general public in Western countries, or a demonstration of resolve to continue " the good fight " despite the price being paid by our servicemen and women. Highly emotive subject, should this type of propaganda, for want of a better word, be distributed in the media to score political points? The marine obviously feels that it should or he would not have taken part, a more non political banner may have been used " proud to have served , no regrets" to invoke the president smacks of political spin in play. IMHO the message should be passed on loud and clear that these service people are willing to make these sacrifices for you and yours, so stop whinging and support THEM, not necessarily the politicians of the day.
