Shellshock

By Remy Benoit

From the AP and Military.com Shellshocked Soldiers Emerge From Battle.

From Newsweek and Scott Johnson 'Tipping Point'.

From MSNBC Rice to push for Mideast truce through U.N.
Secretary of state says she believes cease-fire can be reached this week.

How many lives, homes can be lost in a week?

Perhaps we need to show more of the graphic footage of war, of the wounded, of the dead on the television. Maybe then we would understand we need to find a better way. Would that showing offend sensibilities? Well, maybe they need to be offended to work to find a better way. Sometimes truth hurts, a lot. But only when we face it can we deal with it. War is ugly.
