BBC and CNN were too squeamish to air the footage of dead and captured US soldiers. Croatian Nova TV was not. I saw only glimpses and that was enough to ruin anyone's day. I might watch Oscars tonight, but I can't drive those images from my head. And what is even more disturbing is the fact that there is going to be more of that. Iraqis, by all accounts, are putting much bigger fight than anticipated, and those images are only going to encourage them. So this war is going to be much longer and much bloodier than anyone has imagined.
