More Damaging Pictures of US Troops in Afghanistan

Hosted by

Today's Los Angeles Times made news from LA to Washington to Kabul with pictures of American soldiers posing with the body parts of dead Afghans who apparently blew themselves up. Is such behavior understandable? Is it forgivable? Also, As Spain becomes the latest target of demands for austerity, such measures in Greece, Ireland and Italy appear to have increased suicide rates, sex traffic and HIV. Plus, LA is the archetypical home of the automobile.  Could it be turned into a city of walkers?
