The war in Afghanistan is taking a tremendous toll on human life, but the conflict shows no sign of ending any time soon.
I wish you would have made 1/2 the coffins with Crescent Moons as they also have been killed in this madness
You could also compare this with the situation with Libia, Tunesia and Egypt. Especially Libia, but then the soldiers would be innocent citizens and the machine would be called Ghadaffi's vision or Genocide(r) or something like that.
if only the american government could see this ;- (
@Matteo, I think you've achieved what political cartoonists want to do everyday - take the dialogue "out of the box". Great job!
Thanks to you dear Sherif!
Thanks for understanding, Matteo. I was just worried that some people may misunderstand it. Good job.
What do you think about the title: "The Afghan box factory" ?
And you could always adjust the title to make sure everyone understands it's the Afghan flag in the background. My suggestion: Afghan War Machine'.
I think I agree with Spiros.
I think it's fine the way it is, and represents a reality that cannot be easily misunderstood or denied: the flag in the background is specifically the afghan flag, and not a generic Islam banner. Coalition soldiers are dying there, hence the coffins with the cross, no, I don't thing anything should change in this cartoon
When I have drawn this cartoon I had many things that I thought to add or to remove.First I thought to remove crosses from the coffins because was easy to be misunderstood like Sherif rightly wrote to me.But my cartoon want to be a critic against the shipment of military in Afghanistan view by italian side, I'm against our fascist minister of the defense that is only ejoying his "dirty war game", I'm against these italian soldiers who are there just like mercenaries, in the name of a fake peacekeeping mission and anti-terror and I'm against the hypocrite christian curch silence.Anyway I'm open to remove or to add other things listening your suggestion.Thank you my dear friends.
good idea .. n' sherif say the right thing .. but sherif u forgot Israel n' america ...
@Sherif I don't think it needs any labels. War is a war no matter where and why.
Great cartoon and I agree with Sherif.
Great idea. I think Sherif's suggestion is a good way to improve the cartoon.
Nice idea Matteo, but you made it looks like a religious war between Islam and Christianity. May be it would be better if you write Al-Qaeda or Iraq or Afganistan to be more specific.
