From reading Noam's comments this reminds of that tidbit from Full Metal Jacket in which the drill sergeant was using the word "gooks" (and other ethnic slurs against the Vietnamese). At first I thought that was an exaggeration until I saw a documentary featuring basic training in the Marine Corps, the drill sergeants use the phrase "towel heads" liberally.

then we differ on our perceptions of humour...

like i say, i'm a veteran (uk military but twice attached to US units too) and I do find it amusing... maybe the message underneath is a serious topic but the cartoon itself is funny.

many a serious message is carried on the back of a joke.... some people miss the joke i guess.

and no, Listypoos, nothing about this says it's supposed to be funny.

@ Listypoos:

"oh come on basket, of course it's supposed to be funny.... it's a cartoon drawing, not an oil painting of the weeping madonna."

Your use of the phrase "it's supposed to be funny" made my case :)

Psychgeek, So you don't think this was supposed to be humorous?

I didn't say all cartoons were supposed to be funny.... but implied they usually they are.

Hence the definition being

"noun
1.
a sketch or drawing, usually humorous, as in a newspaper or periodical, symbolizing, satirizing, or caricaturing some action, subject, or person of popular interest. "

so yeah.. i think it's a fair starting point when assessing one....

They forgot to include the part where you fight for your country and get hardly any money as a retired veteran.

@basketkase, the point is, that soldiers are just slaves to the leaders' needs. They use soldiers to solve their problems, instead of doing it themselves. The American army is simply defending against another army. They use all sorts of systems to push you into their problems, like religion and the army.

We are not related to those problems, and the same is with the Muslim terrorists, they are just in a system that makes them involved.

So they remove the hat that's covering up the gaping empty hole in your head, fill it with some brains, put a more natural covering on and then paint some hair on top.

What if it talks, about what war does to you? PTSD can make you emotionally numb.

It's clearly not saying soldiers are dumb, since he is depicted as normal before the military. It probably talks about how the military destroys or brainwashes people (in his opinion).

@basketkase, who told you this is specifically about the American military?

basket, you must realise though that as servicemen we do or have done things that lots of other people would deem far more offensive than doing a funny picture on a wall... it's not that offensive, it's pretty funny.

@ NNoamfer:

not always, actually. one common symptom of PTSD is to have an anxiety attack when you see or hear things that remind you of your time during the war.

"The people depicted on this wall defended this person's right to make this picture."
Presuming that this piece is in either the US or Western Europe...the last time a soldier fought to defend this artist's right to produce something like this was 1945.

If you don't believe it, then this artist has something to tell you...

i'd like to see the ass who painted this spend a year in the service.

Soldiers are fighting and dying to protect this country. they are not mindless drones, they are human beings who are putting their lives on the line for us. God Bless the Troops.

basket.. are you really offended?

i'm a veteran yet I don't and don't know anyone else i was in service with that really gets offended that easily.

btw, I do think they missed the navy one showing them getting their backbone taken out.

this is not anti-war.. its anti-soldier. I am not a mindless pawn. I think about my actions, my service allows people to express what they want whenever they want. what does a 16 year old girl know about war or what a soldier thinks.

@Steelgrid, how is the military related to the government's choice whether to give us rights or not? There have been many places, where there was a military and no rights to the people.
