Maybe I can draw a collage with the 200,000 bodies with holes in their skulls that have been dug up around Iraq.

That is a FUBAR mosaic.

Yes indeed..I don't care for Bush, but I don't exactly like this mosaic either. No offense MissMaCo. I understand the point of it, but it's not how I would choose to honor those men and women

I'm not sure if honouring these men and women is the meaning of the mosaic

I don't care for Bush, either, and I do think these brave men and women should be commemorated, I just am not sure it's like this. Maybe they should put up a statue somewhere or something.

I'm with Dr Teeth. I think the people in this are pawns... for another image...perhaps.

Died for him? Out of their duty come a respect for the office. But their oath is not to a man.

We may not be able to measure it today, but we and our children have benefited from their last full measure of devotion.

The point is that they all died in a meaningless, immoral, pointless, unprovoked war, because of the ego of THAT man. Iraq was not a threat to us. We were not in danger. They died for that man's ego.

'tis strange to talk about honor, I mean, I did not think of this word at first. When I first saw this pic, I thought it was very ironic and pathetic as well. The meaning of the word "memorial" is ironic too. I agree to say that maybe those people didn't die BECAUSE OF George Bush himself, but he was the one who decided to go on war, so that's not really a form of paying a tribute to those people but IMO rather to underline what some people call the big mistake of Bush.



But indeed, this is a very puzzling image and I'm thinking about studying it with my students. There are a lot of things to say ! And it's interesting to share our opinions on it !

I want to remind everyone to tread very carefully in this thread. I'm going to keep it open for now, but I do see this as being pretty damn inflammatory, so I will close it at the first sign of trouble.
