i find this whole war a pointless, religous racisim dispute. look at christians, jews and muslims, they all worship the SAME GOD and believe in the same pricipals. why do we have to be so blind?
i also hate that people think every muslim is a erratic terroist. just because some extrimist blows up a building doesn't mean that all of them are going to blow something up. how these people are discriminated for their religion because a few of them are madmen, i don't get. they are just like us, people that are friends with a muslim, do you see them hijacking planes? i doubt it.
I almost thought your comment said 'every muslim is an erratic terroist' and I was about to rip you a new one. Glad I went back and re-read it! I completly agree with you, but I do think that the US has made everyday life better for the majority in Iraq and Afganistan. By erraticating the Taliban and Al Queda, we have done both countries a huge favor, and maybe men don't have to fear being dragged away in the middle of the night, or a girl can go to school and get an education without being stoned or whipped to death, or a woman can work and drive to support her family after her husband has been killed by the terrorist organizations. But the religious aspect of the war has me shaking my head. Hopefully all three religions will pull their heads out of their provervial butts and recognize their differences before more blood is needlessly spilled.
Thanks! I'm honoured that you comment on a deviation that is over two years old!
I had (and have again) a lot of difficulties with Mr George W. Bush. He has a very strange face, not beautiful and not ugly, but it is equally proportional and I don't know where to put an emphasis on.
Thanks for the compliments!
Sadly, that is just the way I see things...
Sometimes, I would prefer to be blind and ignorant as many others, in order to see the life as in a Walt Disney film where the good ones are always the winners. ;0)
By the way, I am surprised (and honoured) to read comments on deviations I submitted more than two years ago...
I find that to be true. "In the name of my invisible friend, I declare world on everyone who does not beleive in this man here."
Euuugh, world leaders/powerful people have to start realizing when to fight on more practical terms. [not intended toward war on iraq, that war is for disarming the country, or so we think...]
A war starts.
"Is it bombs sir?"
"Are they planning a diobolical scheme to destroy the earth, sir?"
"Oh, phew, you were scaring me there. So whats so serious that we have to go to war?"
"They do not... beleive in our god."
"!!! I'll scramble the troops, sir, this was more serious than I thought!!"
Then shit happens, then when the country is taken over and their way of life distrupted, they all look around and use the excuse, "Well, they're country is clean now, and beleiving in the right god. **can we go back home now? I cant miss the game...**"
riiiiiiight. Hehehhe, There are so many ways to go about that problem, it all just makes no moral sense to begin with. Good work, there, glogauer
Yes, yes, a thousand times YES! I've got to say that this is, hands down, the best political cartoon I've seen on this site yet. I mean, the amazing thing here is that it's so completely true! Aside from the pile of skulls, (which was a nice detail, by the way!) the message is word for word complete reality! If Bush and Sadaam have anything in common, it's the fact that they both spew out rediculous religious dogma to indoctrinate their people. Bush calls Sadaam an "evil dictator" and Sadaam calls Bush an "evil warlord."
People become so caught up in villifying their enemies that they forget the genuine frailty and value of individual human life. When innocent civilians are killed because their "elected"
"leaders" are power hungry trigger-happy maniacs, it's never the right thing to do, be it the case of America or Iraq. When presidents dispute, it's always the people who suffer. I say we just throw Bush and Sadaam in jail and let them solve their problems there!
Anyway, I support your message 100% and thank you for having the courage to say what you believe. Don't let the ignorant nay-sayers or angry conservatives get to you- Stay firm, stay informed, and keep having that sense of humor! When you've got a sense of humor, nobody's taunts or insults can get you down. I myself posted a similar picture on my Deviant site, and got over 200 angry letters from people (uninformed 12-year olds mostly) who wanted to rip my intestines out with a fork for saying what I believe in! Hey, their entitled to their opinion, but so am I!
Keep fighting for what you believe in, pal. It's so nice to know that there are people like you around who aren't scared to speak theior mind.

How can you let a man who kills over 4,000 of his OWN people, just for testing purposes, run a contry? This is a problem that is not going to be sorted out on it's own. He is not just going to disarm just by us asking him nicely, action must be taken.
There is no need to go on political rants about this. Bush and Saddam have both done their share of crimes against humanity, and crimes against democracy. Whether you pull the blindfold of the flag (Iraqi or American) over your eyes or not, the facts remain.
Everyone has their own agenda these days. America, Iraq, they're just the same. And soon, the whole world will get into this mess they made up. I'm against war, but I don't support Saddam (Iraq is a muslim country, I'm a muslim). Because of his leadership, a lot of muslims will suffer. Why can't America just send in some snipers to take him out? why did they have to order an airstrike with a radius of a couple of kilometres just to take someone out? It's all bullshit to me..
Neway.. i just love the personification. It's a peaceful way to show that ur against war )
