Yeah, support our troops by bringing them home!

Buuuut unfortunatly, if there is going to be war in Syria it'll probably just be another Lybia. That is, 2 weeks of drone strikes.

Who are we to send our people to die and risk their lives for a place that will never be grateful? Who are we to let thousands of innocents die when when have the ability to stop it? So we must ask ourselves, Who are we?

What Assad is doing to his people is reprehensible, no question about it. But having US intervention in the civil war will be a disaster. The US Gov't has a history of screwing up the middle east, mainly intentionally, like with the coup in Iran in the 1950s, which the CIA just admitted recently it was behind, to the Iran-Contra "deal" with the great conservative god Ronald Regan, to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Some suspect that the violence in Egypt is the result of the CIA/US Military secretly rousing protestors, but there is no evidence of that yet (as far as I know).

Syria is in different situation than Afghanistan or Iraq. There is civil war, not country against country.  I think Obama don't want a war but he did not expect when he set the limit that someone use chemical weapon. Now he's slave of his own words. 

Al-Asad is pro-western and don't want orthodox Muslim in power but most people in Syria is orthodox.

Al-Qaeda and United Arab Emirates also support rebel. And even  UAE gives four times more money than USA.

I think if someone should do something with this it should be UAE.

What size is the original?

I'd love to print these out, poster size, and make pickets signs. There's plenty of support for this in Portland. We just need better signage, because unfortunately, most protesters don't know jack about graphic design.

They'll make small posters, about 9 x 12 inches. Better for handbills and internet use than large street demo signs.  You can enlarge them bigger than that, but they will pixelate.  If you know how to use Photoshop or Gimp though, I can supply the source material and you can make them much larger than I post them here.  Drop me a note if you're interested.

Pixelation is one of my main pet-peeves. I have a couple of tricks with textures and blur effects to disguise the pixelation, but I understand if you don't want the integrity of your work compromised.

Well, I'd rather they get used.  If pixelation doesn't bother you, blow them up.

I don't disagree or agree with the statement - I just wanted to point out that because of the claim of "no boots on the ground" meaning no one actually gets to go near syria except maybe airforce) the poster is a bit out of place.  Maybe you could do another one that shows something ironic about missiles, drones, etc. ? Or about the people, kids or bioweapons in Syria?

Maybe you need to read some reliable news reports and study the issue before you come into my gallery, act like you actually know anything, and then condescend to me, dipshit.  Most of the firepower deployed and likely to be used will be from naval vessels, not the air force, or the army.

See, for example:




And as far as suggestions go, maybe you could just go fuck fuck yourself, eh?
