Banksy? James Franco made art that doesn't exist. As true as this art is I'm tired of crap like side walk chalk and children in war situations. The web has jaded me, sorry.

@Crakr, and that's what makes you right wing conservative Yanks so laughable to the rest of the world. I'm not saying that I agree with the statement the graffiti is making, but someone has made the point regardless. Painting over it with a Yank flag is just as opinionated.

Nah, CJ, just paint over the last two images and give him an antiwar protest sign.

i would not paint over this condemnation of the monstrosity that is war. insulting soldiers by painting them as mindless people may help to discourage others from participating in a barbaric institution. belittling this painter's expression should not be tolerated. honestly, selfish greedy politicians fail to get along, and millions must die by one another's hands? the artistic depiction is accurate in my opinion.

I'd love to paint over this monstrosity with a big American flag. Insulting our soldiers by painting them as mindless people is outrageous. Belittling our troops with this garbage should not be tolerated.

securitywyrm makes a good point that I've heard from others. Shht gets real nasty (killing kids and innocents) and good people cannot abide by that. So you go in with good intentions and reality is not what it was sold as being. Kind of like the police department. Power corrupts, man...

Not just the army of course. Any institution can indoctrinate people into their way of thinking. Why do you think folks at big corporations can work so hard to fudgek people over? Not necessarily because they are dicks, but because they come to think that the institution is king.

I joined the Army to be a soldier.
I signed up to give them four years of my life. I never signed away being human. That's what they take from you.

Join the army but don't want to fight in a war?
I'm sorry. That's just plain retarded.
YOU'RE A dratING SOLDIER. YOU ARE PART OF WAR.
Don't try and blame it on someone else.

This art is really just exposing what war is. Soldiers are put into a position were they have no choice but to do what they're told, and essentially have no freewill. I think its a good concept and executed nicely.

Well, it makes sense in that soldiers become mindless or will less beings following what others think is "right".

Soldiers choose to become members of the military. There is no draft in the U.S. so suck it up buttercup and cop to reality. Yes politicians choose the war but if you decided to join the U.S. Military you decided to be their tool and that is just what you became. A tool for hire. You don't like this because you know it's true...tool.

i agree with ryanf701. as a military veteran, we didnt choose our wars, the politicians did. the artist who conceived this is an idiot.

This isn't anti-war.. are you f*cking retarded?

Soldiers don't wage war, politicians do. Soldiers do what they're told, because they get thrown in jail if they don't. Do you think that soldiers pick and choose which wars they go to based on if they agree with it or not? No.

Whatever artist made this, whoever submitted it, and whoever approved it/thinks it makes any semblance of sense should probably be sterilized. The world would be a much better place without your equally as retarded children running around, just let it die with you.

I can't tell if this site was always a stoner-hippie-liberal mecca or if it's been becoming one more and more every day.

Then there was a gun-induced foot injury called de-baathification.

Well put PsychGeek. I didn't serve four years in The Corps because I was brainless. I did it for my country, my fellow soldiers and the American people I swore to protect.

@5Cats Did you just claim that teaching– and most other professions– requires killing people?

If you were smart, you'd know why the doctrine of Sun Tzu was followed EXPERTLY by the Bush administration and the coalition forces.


Thousands dead, near ancient almost unuseable chemical weapons found, and some yellowcake with no reactor to put it in. What a good war that was.

@NNoamfer: are you sure you live in Israel? Where terrorists kill children, rockets fall on civilians and 5 countries have attempted to invade? That place?

FYI: it's a 'global villiage' now, we are ALL involved, eh? Look at the USA: they thought the Taliban in Afghanistan was not their concern... big mistake!



You're changing the subject.

@ Solvent:

that is perhaps the most idiotic thing I've seen on this post. there are *tons* of good soldiers who are also amazing human beings. fighting and killing in WAR is completely different from fighting and killing in your neighborhood.

Next time you see a soldier, instead of judging his worth as a human being why don't you thank him for keeping you free? and for fighting to allow you to say such horrible things about his comrades.

I don't think that this is insulting at all...I know a veteran from the states who freely stated that soldiers were brainwashed. You almost have to be in order to carry out the endeavors they're asked to carry out. Smart, not insulting.
