Soldiers are meant to defend the freedoms of the people they serve. It's the politicians to blame for lying and manipulating the people, deceiving them to send soldiers to kill innocents in the "defense of freedom". The politicians lie to further their own agendas, and their lies cause the death of countless people.
Most people all over the world, in the East or the West, don't want to fight or kill or die - they just want to live their own lives. The last thing most soldiers want is a war.
Unfortunately, the politicians and those in power don't see thing's that way because they don't get blood on their hands. They don't have their homes destroyed by invading foreigners, nor are they sent to fight and die in a desert full of people who hate them for a war they don't understand.
The poor die first and the rich and powerful drink the blood that flows, but their thirst is never quenched.
In war, the first casualty is innocence. Whether it's a soldier that shoots a helpless civilian or the bomber who kills himself and innocent bystanders around him. Human beings who are otherwise decent people are manipulated and turned into killing machines and monsters - just to appease those who live in ivory towers and glass houses.
Bouben... are you serious?
I'm unsure of the other image in question, but this one is self-explanatory.
tell me if these lyrics resonate any?
"Aint me.. it aint me, I aint no senators son, no...
Aint me.. it aint me I aint no fortunate one, no.."
War as a machine is an imperialist evil and the soldiers unitied as one represent pure evil. We cannot forget though that it has ALWAYS been the poor that try to make something of their lives through military service.
It should be well known by now with the cold shoulder or even harrasment of sufferers of gulf war syndrome and all the further fuckups of war that the grand US of A .. Imperial war machine of the 21st century, doesnt give a fuck about its very tools of opression. They will be replaced by newly born desperate lower-class living citizens soon enough.
The juxtaposition of "worthless soldiers" in Iraq to the "worthless population" of New Orleans is poignant and beautiful.
Sorrow is a parasitic vampire of an emotion so I do not entertain it, I'll only say this is a beautiful piece and gives full respect to the deceased where the nation has failed to do so.
aren't you contradicting a little bit? first you draw some EVIL US SOLDIERS or MERCENARY, then you show us POOR US SOLDIERS, who went to Iraq to get some money, so they can study on high schools and get some money injection for their famillies.
i don't understand your opinions or I fully understand your interests.
Ahhh... the old subject of the class struggle. Well... That's sadly how things are. Would be great that rich people sent their kids to war too (Specially politicians) . That way they'll know better what war is about.
