The following quote is taken from the International Herald Tribune, Thursday, Nov 2, 2006 and is not related to the photographer of the above photo except that they are both linked to the war in Iraq;
From a doctor trained to work in battle with the US Army. He is speaking about his training before coming to Iraq:
' The idea is to work with live tissue. You get a pig and you keep it alive. Every time I did something to help him, they would wound him again. So you see what shock does and what happens when more wounds are received by a wounded creature. My pig....they shot him twice in the face with a 9 millimetre pistol, and then 6 times with an AK-47 and then twice with a 12-gauge shotgun. And then he was set on fire. I kept him alive for 15 hours....that was my pig.'
Bloodlust. Mission lost. Get out now.
