    It seems to me it would have been MORE political to leave the picture un-cropped because you are then suggesting via the photo that the man with the knife in the picture stabbed the soldier, of which there is no proof that isnt circumstantial.

    Again, did anyone look at the picture and think the soldier just fell down?

    What people think consciously when they see an image is less important than their subconscious reaction.

    Well, at least try to provide some evidence anyone thought anything other than the people on the boat hurt this soldier. Seriously, what other conclusion could there be? Conscioulsy or subconsciously?

    it makes the consequence aloof from the event, you see the edited picture, you think "that soldier got injured", however the unedited version you think "that person with the knife injured a soldier", people know the soldier was injured by someone, but it's a detached thought, the picture of the bloke with a knife personalises the event.

    How does the California LEO's react to you carrying a combat knife unsheathed in your left hand as you saunter down the street?

    What's even more asinine is the support for Muslim extremists that I read on this board.

    Yeah, he fell down alright after he was knocked down. You guys really amaze me with all the excuses for terrorism.
