New Military Art

After re-visiting The Land Remembers, I was reminded of a friend who was killed in Afghanistan Tobie Fas Fous. I spent sometime looking at images and felt very moved that these young men are giving their lives to protect people who are a mystery to them. It provided these mental images, I hope it doesn't offend anyone, I love our guys and hope that no more of them die in this awfull war

When The War Is Over And The Soldiers Are Gone The Land Remembers (Revisited)

A Friend of mine works for The Australian Veterans charity and he was explaining the effects of Agent Orange, Napalm et cetera on the land and the soldiers and civillians involved in that war. It was horrific to hear of the side effects that the veterans and vietnamese are living with to this day almost 40 years later. He also told me that the dust from napalm is carcinogenic. I sometimes think humanity is a disease and the Earth is dying of it.
