If they would of used photos of the millions that Saddam killed, then maybe it would be alittle sharper of an image.

it trivializes their death. For example: would you play pin the tail on the donkey on the fallen soldiers pic? Would you play darts with him as the target. Its just not a positive piece of art. Its a cynical piece of propaganda.

If the soldiers were the back ground and the foreground was the tomb of the unknown soldier or a war memorial or a giant flag waving , with the soldiers in the back ground that would be nice. This is trying to politicize the death of soldies in my opinion in a very inappropriate way.

It was cleaver way of putting their pictures together to form the picture of the guy that put them in the situation to die for what many (minority on this site) think is a pointless war.

I don't believe it trivializes thier deaths but just shines a light on the man that will be held through out history as the reason for the deaths.

I know people serving and would not be happy if they died serving and their face was used for something like that. You can smear and dis and critique bush, the generals, the other world leaders, previous administrations, etc untill your heart is content, I just would neve approve of a fallen soldiers likeliness being used for anything the family didnt approve of and the soldier didnt approve of. Its the highest level of poor taste and disrespect.

I agree. Regardless of weather you approve or don't approve of the war I feel it's wrong to use somones likeness to make a political statement without knowing what that persons stand was.

I guess I can agree with that. It does make a pretty good political statement at the same time though.

This war is a mess no matter how you feel about it.

Here's one for all of you that think the Iraq war was completely unjustified. Its a mosaic of Michael Moore made with the pictures of Iraqi mass graves that were found after the invasion. Complements of Saddam.



"The images are images of Iraqi mass graves - hundreds of thousands killed by Saddam Hussein’s tyrannical regime.

Women.

Children.

Still clutching their loved ones or their toys as the Mukhabarat murdered them in cold blood."

I still don't think it was our job to take Sadam out of power. His own people could have done that . . . it's called coup and it's happened to 1,000s of nation states in the past and one in thailand right now.

We, the US called it a revolution.
