The article discusses war photography. Currently, there are only few pictures of dead American soldiers while there are numerous images of dead Iraqi on TV and in print. A survey from the previous year showed that in a six-month period in which 559 Americans and Western allies died, no pictures were published in mainstream print media. Hal Buell, the former head of the Associated Press photo agency, claimed that no war will ever be covered like the Vietnam War.
