    Should we post images of dead children?


    Morgue in Gaza, Nov 19 2012. Dozen of children have been killed in Israeli air strikes in recent days.

    Should we post pics of dead children?

    Innocent kids are getting killed in war zones around the world every day, latest victims from Gaza but hundreds of children were killed in Syria this year as well.

    Please vote but before you click think for a minute.

    If we stop will this change anything? Will the world become a better place?

    The answer is NO.

    It's hard, it's sick & tragic so many families torn apart in meaningless conflict.

    Still I am strongly for posting graphic images from war zones and I believe an photo tells you much more than a lengthy news article.

    All war, all religion should be banned on Earth.

    Will it ever happen?

    I agree. As sad as it is, kids die everyday in war. You turn on the news (in the US at least) and they blur out or edit out entirely child deaths in war situations. Do I want to see those pics? No. However, perhaps if these terrible images of war are shown more, then perhaps a dent can be made in all the senseless dying. Will it make a huge impact? I doubt it. The only thing that gives me pause is the idea of someone getting off on the images. But if the images being shown can impact the killing in any way, then we owe it to the victims to try.

    I understand either decision however.

    I totally agree with Rick! If you post pics of kids, for any reason, it will attract pedos, and it may will attract the authorities in some countries. I can't think of a better way to destroy this site.

    While these happenings do occur, and as important as it is to give these poor victims a voice, this is not the place to do that. The trade off is not worth the risk.

    Why the sudden change bindi?

    Anyway, the way things are going I expect we will issue a complete ban on dead child photos in December.

    Hangtime mentioned that if pedos are attracted here, so could the authorities. I never thought about the authority angle. CDG must be protected. I personally understand wanting to show the true face of war. So I get the idea of showing the pics. But we must have some self preservation as well. It saddens me to be so greedy. That is why I changed my position.
