Cartoon Violence

UNICEF used the cute, cuddly and annoying smurfs to raise money and awareness regarding the effects of war on children. The rational was that violence upon cartoon characters is more effective than real pictures of the devastation done to people.

In the nation, there was an article about how a porn site is now carrying explicit war footage shot by soldiers in Iraq. The visitors to the site enjoy the carnage which according to the article is quite graphic. So, cartoon children suffering is controversial and real children blown apart is titillating pornography.
