A bold suggestion and a great idea

Despite the fact that there will be threats against anyone suggesting such an abomination, I have long thought that flooding the papers with such photos would fix the problem in short order. How many demonstrations can be mobilized, flags are expensive and there would be too many to respond to. Hatred is fomented towards the west regardless, so the impact on increasing it is negligible. Perhaps the most important element is that media cameras would grow weary of the non-stories and stop filming these frenzied rioters. Then we would really have achieved something.
