    No. The only debate is with turds that think showing the coffins will help them protest the conflict.

    Yes, Most defiantly.

    The least that those who put our political masters and their policies into place, we the voting public, can do is to honor the Servicemen & Women who have fallen, not to hide away their coffins.

    The armed forces are not political, they serve when and where they are told, and whether you agree with the decisions of politicians the sacrifice made by the Armed Forces must be honored by all citizens irrespective of an individuals political persuasion.

    They fell at your countries behest......for your tomorrow they gave their today.

    Yes I think they should because then it shows the true face and reality of war.

    Retired, you're a dick as usual. The only debate is in your mind.

    Willow, I actually agree with you. If the family wants it then do it, if they prefer not showing the coffin of their loved on then don't.

    That is the way to make this not a political statement.

    The family members of the fallen should have the first say.

    The world should definately see man's inhumanity to man.

    People who call for war should be made aware what war actually entails.
