randomxnp, if you are proving that you are angry and get aggressive - way to go. I was saying that wars shouldn't happen because people kill each other. Do you disagree? I also made the point that is never likely to happen but it is worth thinking about why. Art is meant to make you think.

Nicely done. I'd love to see it in RL. The size would really hammer home the imagery of surrendering one's identity and mind for a hive mind mentality.

...some of those with whom I served.

So just go take a flying fck, all of you who supported this crap. The moron ilovmiguel who posted it; the mods who decided this was worth putting up; anyone who gave this more than a single star; anyone who defends its crass ignorance. The lot of you, just go fck yourselves.

This is yet another example of bigotry being put up on I-A-B; I have noticed a few today. They have all been against typical targets of the left. This one is disgraceful, it attacks not only every male member of my immediate family, all of whom (including I) have served in the British forces, but many of my past and present friends.

It is also childish, self-righteous, self-satisfied and pig-ignorant. The military are far from brainless. They are the among the best people I knew. I found as much to be respected, as fine qualities in the military as I did at the best university in the world. I certainly found more tolerance and less bigotry than I find in any left-wing company.

Yet the community of I-A-B rate it 3 stars-plus out of 4. The insult against the people who guarantee your right to use this uncensored site. The people to whom you owe everything.

Really, today, you guys disgust me. You are the filth not worthy to be trodden under the feet of some of

Your an idiot as well. The message is not positive. It is, itself, mindless drivel. It is simply proof that the "artist" has never actually known any military personnel, so is ignorant of his own subject matter. That is not positive.

Finker, You are an idiot. You have completely failed to understand where something went wrong.

If everyone chose not to fight there would be no wars, but how are you going to persuade the bullies and the armies of vicious dictators or religious fanatics not to fight, without holding firm against them? It is they that choose the fight, not us.

What f**king idiot posted this? Well screw you, every soldier I knew, including my brother and his fellow officers of 3rd Battalion, the Parachute Regiment could kick your arse, but would not because they are far better men than you. The mods of I-A-B should be ashamed to put this up.

Sibosa, who says this is about you? You do a bloody impressive job, I have worked with ex services staff after they leave and generally they are some of the best staff around. Sometimes the people you are sent to kill are equally professional though. The fact you are killing each other means somewhere along the line something got messed up. It is probably fairer to say the people issuing the orders are mindless, but sadly they often aren't stupid. If everyone chose not to fight would there be wars, it isn't going to happen. What I would say for this art is that it makes people ask if soldiers are really mindless.

as a serving British soldier I am quite upset about this picture, so where minless fecking drones are we. I tell you what some of the smartest, people i know are soldiers. We have to take calculated risks every day on ops, if we dont we die. we die protecting that grafiti artist right to paint crap like that on walls, they shuold find him slap a uniform on him and send him to the frontline, lets see his paints help him there. People like this really piss me off.

I don't get it, soldiers are mindless drones? They really aren't.

I don't like this because it's making fun of the soldiers. It should REALLY represent the politicians who sent them there, because the soldiers are really just trying to protect everyone they love back home, and that is one of the most noble things a person can do.

They shouldn't turn into soldiers. They should be turning into hipsters.

I would love to paint over the soldier costumes and turn them into hippy attire. That would actually make sense.

The last fatal terrorist attack here was when I was like 5...

@NNoamfer: you were 5 this spring? When 2-3 Hamas infiltrators killed a man, woman and 3 of their children? For their crime of being Jews, of course. Then the surrounding Palistinian people helped hide the murderers for a week or more. Forget that one?
And the rockets? They stopped... never!
I doubt almost everything on the internets, it's not just you.

@rogue_knight, This graffiti is "something positive". It is the artist's attempt to get his (or her) message out to as many people as possible in an interesting and artistic way. It seems to have worked quite well given that it's ended up on here.

"And I was saying they should follow ethics above orders.

How did you miss that? Poor reading skills?"

Possibly, made worse by the fact that "should" was in caps, mea culpa.
However, and it obviously depends on the ethical code that they elect, one would say that if they followed ethics they wouldn't want to be soldiers, don't you think?

ITT: Silly people thinking this insults soldiers

It's a critique of the system, not the soldiers
