You're right of course, I too saw those pictures.
Don 't get me wrong here, I soley have it here about the words/
language used to support the notion of a ' clean ' war.
The thing you call disinformation shows/ proofs indeed that it
wasn 't so clean as it was portrayed.
Without the use of live- images, the notion of a ' clean ' war will
stay around. Targets is an abstraction unless you see the face of
the dead soldier and the tears of his wife and children.
