The War On Terror? by iddieforana The War On Terror? by iddieforana
More like "The War OF Terror."



This painting contains the names of 170 Iraqi civilians(aged "infant" to 85 years old) that the United States has slaughtered, in the name of oil.

It would take about 12 of these canvases to include the names of every dead Iraqi civilian recorded here as of the time of original submission to dA.

As of 10/24/05, it would take a total of approximately 176 more of these canvases to write every name of every Iraqi the United States has ruthlessly murdered.

That's not even considering the hundreds of thousands of Iraqi people killed as a result of US sanctions(low estimates are around 1,000,000 deaths, and high estimates are around 2,000,000 deaths).

To use some of Bono's words...
I'm sick and tired of Americans talking about the Democratic Revolution in Iraq, and the glory of the revolution, and the glory of dying for the revolution. They don't talk about the glory of killing for the revolution. What's the glory in taking a man from his bed and gunning him down in front of his wife and his children? Where's the glory in that? Where's the glory in sending a missile down a street of homes? Where's the glory in that? To leave them dying, or crippled for life, or dying under the rubble of the revolution...

"One man's hero is another man's villain." There is no such thing as terrorism.

I guess you didn't understand the quote... you call people terrorists who may fight your system because they see it as corrupt, just like you see their system as corrupt... so either you're both terrorists or none of you are. Take a pick, you can't have both. E.g. I see America as one of the most corrupt and fucked up nations in the entire world and I find its people to be very dislikeable with their endless stupidity and ignorance, not to mention there arrogance as "we're number one, we're the best, USA USA USA!" they make me physical ill.

It you were gang raped by a sex jihad that would not be terrifying or evil in your option?

Terrifying? Sure. Evil? No. Just because it's dislikeable doesn't make it evil. You can say the same about cannibalism. I don't see how rape is anymore evil than breeding animals for food when you could live with just eating rots and such. Also, you are aware that of the fact that rape is natural, right?

Rape is dislikeable  and natural?  Are you for real?

What is dislikeable is subjective. Do I need to mention that some people find the idea of getting raped to be their greatest fantasy? So this rule doesn't apply for everyone which is what makes it subjective. You can't say rape is evil.

Rape happens in nature which is the definition of natural, like with homosexuality.

I guess the problem here is that you're quite ignorant and put emotions over that of reality.

I absolutely hate war.

Very powerful deviation. I love what you've done. People need to remember that war has consequences and that people are not expendable casualties.

My grandfather fought in WWII and we found a photograph of probably at least a hundred dead Italians laying on a field. Apparently there were six survivors from this group and told he soldiers my grandfather was with that the Nazis had gassed them. Not sure what those Italians did to piss the Nazis off so much. My guess is they probably just got in the Nazis way.

It's so terrible that so many people have died just because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time during a war.

I hate the War on Terror. War OF Terror, indeed.
