Images and War

Continuing what is turning out to be some sort of thread about images and war, here are some more interesting links that deal with the mess that is the Middle East: Julian Borger reports that “Britons and Americans are watching two different wars” when viewing their respective news programmes about the destruction of Lebanon. About the same war, the Columbia Journalism Review reports on attempts to portray the images of the dead civilians in the most recent massacre in Qana as staged. And the Media Guardian reports on “trophy videos” brought home by US troops and posted on the internet.
