Not fair? I don't agree, but bluntly I don't give a shit.

Because it is true.

Here is/are the face/s of the war.

A closer look here.

Did you know that Our Fearless Leader was on vacation this week?

That is just chilling.

I'm really glad you posted this.

Agreed. Not fair, a little cheapening of the dead soldiers but that doesn't make it not true.

Probably get better resolution if you used the civilian casualties.

I dunno . . . .

. . . higher resolution would mean devoting more bandwidth than Bush really deserves.

I would love to have this as a poster. People everywhere need to see this.

You took the words right out of my mouth. This should be printed and disseminated everywhere. I'd put it in my front window, in my car window (rear side, anyways), I'd make it a sign for the sure-to-be-increasing peace marches.

Who can do this?

That man's face isn't the most pleasant thing to see first thing in the morning.
But fantastic job anyway.

Yeah, but it's a WORKING vacation . . .

. . . the president's advisors ride out to meet him at least once a day to tell him what he's authorized to know.

Bluntly there are costs of freedom.

Bluntly these men and women did not die for freedom. Thats what they fought for. What they died for was the hubris of a bunch of people who made good and sure they would never have to fight themselves, who thought they were too clever to have to do due diligence before sending what were clearly less valuable americans to die.

They were factchecked at every step by people who knew what the soldiers would be facing. They fired them.

For those of you who want to mass-distribute this as a black and white photo, I have dithered the image and will email it to you at your request.
It is even more stark and effective when grey-scaled, and I'll even put a large banner across the top that says "Criminal" or "Murderer".
Your choice.
The customer is always right!
From: (Anonymous) Date: April 8th, 2004 03:13 pm (UTC) (linkie thing)
There are more choices than "Criminal" and "Murderer". That's the whole frickin' point of the collage.

920 pictures. I see one soldier's picture 3 times. Very minor point. That's normal for this kind of graphic.

920 Pictures

It seems to me, that it will take only a short time at the rate of escalation to get to 920 photos. The point of this work is to stop the killing before we get a 1 to 1 ratio to create this type of image!
Why should this many of our soldiers have to die, along with 14 fold Iraqi civilians simply to provide a platform for the subject of the art to be re-elected?

Would love to have a black and white of this to make into a poster or larger print. Per your kind offer, would you send to me? Thank you.

Please, before distributing this, talk to the artist (link at the_poorman)
From: (Anonymous) Date: April 10th, 2004 03:07 pm (UTC) (linkie thing)

"first, talk to the artist"

It looks like someone ELSE has offered your work. If so, what are YOUR wishes. Sallybutterfly52

Re: "first, talk to the artist"

Ok, if you follow the link to the poor man, where I got it, it tells you that the art was produced by amleft@hotmail.com

That is who you need to contact for permission to use this art.

As it said in the post, I did not produce it.
