ABSTRACT
In this article the author comments on a photograph where the dead body of a U.S. soldier was being sent back from Afghanistan. He states that mainly the U.S. is responsible for the death of innocent people in Afghanistan and its soldiers in that country. However, the photograph depicts the body of the soldier being loaded into a truck which looks more of a shredder that this looks very heartbreaking. It is mentioned that the soldiers were died by an attack by suicide bomber.
