West Point graduation

Someone from the United States Military Academy at West Point spent 17 minutes browsing my Iraq cartoon blog: [link]

And here's a special cartoon for my fans in West Point!

why does't anyone dog the marines or navy why is it always the army.
some of us don't really have much to live for so let us die pretending our lives meant something while you liberals have fun making music, protesting issues you have no facts about.

So bad but funny as hell. Great Job.
After this pic I don't believe you have anymore fans period.
You are a douchebag. Have some respect for the soldiers that make it possible for you to sell this shit. Move to France cunt.

Soldiers don't really fight for US, they fight for the government.

With all possible respect to my brother/sister alumnus/alumna LifeNotDeath93, I have to disagree. I'm a West Point graduate, Class of '84, with four tours of duty in Iraq. I'm a proud wearer of a Combat Action Badge (CAB) that I earned legitimately in a close-range shootout. I think this cartoon sucks outrageously--its fundamental premise is a lie. Since 9-11-2001, all West Point Cadets have understood exactly what their futures held: active duty in a for-real-no-b.s.-people-get-killed-war. Enough recent graduates have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, with memorial services following on campus at West Point, that Cadets who are a couple-three classes junior to those who have died GET IT. They don't have amazed expressions on their faces, nor do they have fear-induced sweat pouring off them, as they contemplate their own very possibly impending violent deaths. They are professional soldiers--admittedly young and mostly untested--but professional all the same. They leave West Point with their eyes and their minds clearly focused on doing the job that is expected of them. They are not gleeful but neither are they quivering. They are simply sober and determined to do their best.

War is Bad
according to wiki as of 2010...

USA deaths = 3,771
Muslim Terrorist deaths = 23,984
muslim civilian dead = 66,081

100,000 muslim dead for sacrificing 4,000 americans.

According to the facts it sounds like Death has visited the muslims more often.
I went to West Point and find this cartoon to be right on the money. It takes courage and wit to make a statement among all the bullshit rhetoric and propaganda that this country employs in order to get people to sign up and die for the interests of the rich. War is a horrifying thing that those in power wage in order to profit from. Those who are scarred, killed, and psychologically f-ed up will never get back what they lost - and for WHAT?? Freedom?? Give me a break!!
And no, an 18 year old does not know what they are signing up for. Thats why the scumbag recruiters go to high schools to get children, whose frontal lobes are not fully developed, to join the military. It is sickening. Wake up, America. We wage war to open up new markets for corporations like Halliburton to exploit. If you are at the Point now and are a plebe or a yuk...QUIT WHILE YOU HAVE THE CHANCE! It is so not worth it. Your talents are needed elsewhere. I want to cry when I think of the friends and bright people I knew who have needlessly died in these wars. I say again. Get out. It is not worth it.

The goal of the military is not to die for your country but to make the other son of a bitch die for his.

Congratz! you made the astonishing connection between people who join the military and danger. Yon could make the same comic with a Palestinian and the grim reaper saying "see you in the middle east" or any body else that has ever died any where ever.

I hope you realize that West Point cadets fully realize the risks to their health and lives when they start military service. Death is a risk. They know.

I must say; you portray such a powerful message here with this simple cartoon... it demonstrates how easy it can be to put a clear message into an image that, despite of its simplicity, has a lot to say.
I must say this is a very nice piece.

I'm glad someone had the balls to say it, and in such a perfectly lighthearted manner than seems to mirror everything I see on the news now.
