#1 Hey, LSM, these ragtag Muslim rebels you adore are getting wiped out on the battle field. What are doing in the middle of it. Are you THAT stupid?????

#2 Photojouirnalists, heh? They'll only get a 24 hours of chatter from the MSM. Real JOURNALISTS would receive weeks of paeans from the talking heads. See that's how you'll know who's real and who's a wannabe.

#5 Being a war corespondent is VERY dangerous duty. And these guys took that duty, and paid the ultimate price. By all accounts I have seen, they were good at it too (the boots-on-the-ground reporters usually are, it's the clowns in the studio that screw it up.) I salute them, and offer prayers for their families.

#7 much respect RIP, wonder if the co director of Restrepo is the one who stayed and did all the camera work on the documentary?

#8 Tim Hetherington -- who was nominated for an Oscar this year with co-director Sebastian Junger for "Restrepo"

Photojournalism has been getting a bad name lately, what with blatant paleo-fauxtography, cleverly framed 'crowd' shots at rallies and such, but if Restrepo is any indication, Hetherington was the real deal.

note: Restrepo is a combat documentary that tells the story of a year in the life of an Army platoon at an outpost in Afghanistan. Watch it and be moved, awed and humbled.

#9 Restrepo shopuld be mandatory viewing in high schools! If they can push all that liberal; bullshit down our kids throats then they should be shown what real men and women go through in war zones like afghanistan and the losses they endure. Might teach alot of the youth today too show a little more respect too our soldiers before the professors at places such as berkely get ahold of them and warp their senses.

#10 In the immortal words of Gunny Hartmann "he's got guts and guts is enough" - applies to anyone that goes and puts themselves on the line to tell the story of our guys doing the fighting.
