Must be an American weapons-factory because we have children there. And I didn't know that Iraqi children were black.... /sarcasm
I'd hope you're not forgetting what the purpose of DeviantART is, which is for folks to showcase art of all types, and not all of it deals with what is going on in the world today. Hell, it just might not have ANYTHING to do with what is going on in the world today...like this image. It shows human sacrifice for another being that has absolutely no relation to them what-so-ever. It happens a lot across the world, and in this created (note that CREATED part) images' case it just happens to be an American soldier.
i just wanted to state that you are glorifying your soldiers that were sent into a war that was built up on lies and is made absolutely incompetently. You are told stories about biological weapons in Iraq. How about biological weapons in america? If america starts preemptive wars, why shouldn't the rest of the world bomb america? The world has more reasons to fear america than america has to fear the rest of the world.
....I'm anti-war (NOT anti-American), but even I have to admit- everything has it's exceptions... And this is definately one of them! This is what I call true heroism- risking your life to save another, not to destroy another. Bravo! *claps* Excellent work.
Can you believe what the Al Jazeer did with that photo of the soldier giving the man a drink of water? They cut out the canteent and made it so the soldier is holding the enemies head back, while another guy holds an AK-47 Assault Rifle. Quite sickening rather. But soldiers know what kind of people we really are.
So very true. You'd be surprised how much negativity I got in some of the comments on my own deviantArt page about this. But, they were far outnumbered by the good. Still, it's sad that people would blame the soldier for their own political feelings. I even had one person say "why would he be saving this child, soldiers are babykillers" - it was crazy. Anyway, thanks for the comment and sharing the feelings that this inspired
Thank you! I wish these kind of events never had to happen, as well. These are some sad and scary times in many ways. But I wanted to capture the inherent good that's still in so many of us with this piece. Thanks for the comment!
I agree. Anyone could've been doing this kind of good deed. In fact, many of the best "good deeds" are done by those that will never get any acknowledgement for them. Ordinary heroes, one might say. Thanks so much for the comment
Actually, it could depict any member from any military( just in case, though, our own Firefighters here in Brazil are ordered in a Military Force's hierarchy, and they do need to deal with situations that put their own lives at stake everyday )forces from wherever in the Wold.
Though, military or not, North American, or not the feeling is Universally commendable, and appliable to other non-military professions as well, regarding their own needs - therefore, it's due to be always reminded, indeed.
Thank you for sharing this( and, BTW, it's an awesome work, itself ).
well yeah... I'm Canadian (although I live in Hong Kong right now - will move to Vancouver in a few days) and sometimes I might not agree with the way the US government makes its decisions, I support the soldiers. Whether going into Iraq was a mistake or not, I will be saddened by the death of each US soldier.
I'm very surprised to realize that quite a number of my grade mates at my former school think of American soldiers that go to war 'cuz they're bloodthirsty killers that want some fun. I don't think so - for the United States Armed Forces
