I think Americans just cant accept this. I know you didnt mean to blame the people. But the policy sucks
of course they want to get oil who don't know that
so why they have to get the peace by the death
(not only the army) innocent people are suffering
but I think many Americans against the War.
at least you should had just drawn Bush

Maybe you should stop drawing shitty pictures during your lessons and pay attention to current events and history. That would give you the OBVIOUS answer to question #1.

Why secure the oil rigs? R u THAT dense? They are securing that so that Saddam military doesn't light them on fire again...it's not THAT hard to comprehend...

(1) there is NO PROOF the war is over oil...do you have any cold HARD facts? NO!!! It was started by potesters looking for an excuse to protest...

(2) the drawing sucks btw...

(3) people get worked up about the swastika b/c it is associated with THE MOST EVIL AND CRUEL leader this world has ever seen. Unfortunetly, the symbol they chose is VERY close to a Budhist symbol...all you would have to do is mirror the Budhist symbol and you have the Nazi swastika.

it is a war over oil..whether you want to believe it or not. but that is not the only reason; the cause of this war is a very long lasting, deeply rooted problem that started a long time ago and has just again been brought to light in the public. in response to cqb's second comment, it has very much become a war about rascism..that is one of the key tools that the government is incorporating into its tacit propaganda...they want us to hate and feel totally alienated from middle eastern people and their way of life; in fact i can already see it setting in among my friends and it is very frustrating, discouraging, and disturbing. i think you have every right to compare us to nazis..i dont take it offensively. i think you just expressed the truth thru your own personal medium, and not only do i appreciate it, i agree with it. i am american, but i dont at all agree with the way things are going right now...im gonna add this to my favorites.

The concept is interesting, however, comparing the US to a Nazi regime (although we -do- seem to be turning fascist) is not really valid. Most people say this war's about oil; however, Iraq is -thirteenth- in producing oil in OPEC out of 15 nations, and even then, there's other places we get oil; we get most of our oil from Venezuela. Anyway, this could have been executed a lot more efficiently. I do not agree with its message, either. ...But I also do not find it very aesthetically pleasing. (You could have cropped out the spiral, and added more contrast, or added more eye-attracting text in a more arranged manner)

But is it actually fitting? No one thinks of the Swastika and Nazi's as the political party, all that comes to mind is genocide and anti-semitism.

The republican and democratic heads are done arguing, they are pushing for a quick end to the war. the Bush Administration really wants that oil, its damn obvious... but they don't want to waste the country and its people.

Its a war about money... not racism and hate that that symbol represents.

[And I can tell that cqb isn't too fond of spelling.] The image is nice, and I like the concept, and people need to realize that Nazism wasn't about world domination; Hitler went where he went for very specific reasons. He took over Poland because they had lots of Jews and they had access to the sea. He took France because of Germany's defeat in WWI. He tried to take Russia so that he only had to fight a war on one front.

Just like Dubya wants to invade Iraq because it suits his own needs. So that Americans will forget his horrendous abuse of domestic policy. So that Americans will forget the real enemy.

Good drawing but I also disagree with the message. If the US were Nazi's, we'd be invading Canada and Mexico already or would have taken over the world already.

I think its good that you're expressing your opinion, but if you think that the USA is becoming a bunch of Nazis, I think the idea needs to be evalutated. I'd personally consider Iraq to be more nazish than us. Have you noticed how many people dont like the idea of war with Iraq? Many didn't want to go, and some even protested. I personally dont know if Bush is going to be re-elected or not because of this. Its a good drawing, I just dont agree with the message.
