Finding the Middle Ground by deaddays Finding the Middle Ground by deaddays
Hey, just another contribution to the Iraq War gallery. Everyone seemed to like the last one about Saddam so much (THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO COMMENTED AND ADDED IT, PUTTING ME IN THE TOP 5 FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER!), that I thought I'd upload this one, you know, to share more feelings about this war.
It's not all black and white you know. People think that there's only 2 categories when it comes to the war: either you support the war and wanna bomb Iraq, or you oppose it and want nothing but peace and no one to get hurt. But there's a middle ground too. And I don't mean being INDECISIVE about the war, but to have views that support a little of both. One could support the military and those fighting, but want peace. There are grey areas. Beliefs don't have to be so rigid all the time. So relax, and don't be afraid to find your middle ground on this subject. It's a tough one.
-John
P.S. You know, that Saddam "It Begins" pic got more hits than all my comics COMBINED I think. So c'mon, if you've got some time, stay and browse my strips. You'll like em. Thanks for reading everyone!

I think this could also go for war in general. I think most of us agree that war isn't a good thing, but it seems like people see it in black and white: either you are a die-hard pacifist who thinks war is always wrong in all cases, or you're an anarchist. The thing is, most people I know actually fit into that middle category you're referring to. I'm NOT an anarchist, but I think it's important to defend your country. Killing a bunch of people over something unimportant is evil, but it's not evil if you're defending your country and you've tried to make peace but it's not working.

Man, I needed to see this cartoon. Both sides are so loud and depressing... :blahblah:

Do you still believe there's a middle ground, four-and-a-half years on? It seems like each camp hasn't progressed at all-no dialog, no movement, no progress.

I think I'm pro-peace, but I want to bring the Iraqis along, not abandon them in the mess we made. But how do we do that? I can't work that through. It's almost as if nobody cares about the Iraqis themselves, not even their own countrymen, and that's the hardest thing to deal with.

Good Sir you disgrace yourself, you speak of no blood yet blood is spilled in waterfalls and comes down in storms with or with-out the U.S.A., You Speak of No Liberation yet you use your liberty, you speak of no war yet you support the slaughter of millions and the oppression of all. you speak of no freedom but still you use it. You are no more valiant as a cur to denounce us, you aim your attacks against the USA, how about you go walk down the streets of a Muslim country breaking religious law, and shouting profanities and other such as this you will have a high chance of being taken by a terrorist group and executed. Religion? you speak of religion, you dare to even speak a word of religion, religion has nothing to do with it besides how much the tyrants of terrorists have twisted it to benefit themselves. You don't believe in freedom then don't use it, millions would die for it, and they do.

it is hard to pick a middle ground; like others may have said, needed to be done but some of it's sooo wrong, it's just...hard
but yeah, great cartoon.
