    Coincidentally (cough) the anti-American protests, which this image shows occured on 9/11.


    Tell Kim Jong Il: Give up the nukes, and you can have South Korea.

    This might be the most preposterous suggestion
    I have ever seen in 18 months of Chat Room experience.

    ingratitude=>lack of appreciation for kindness or esp. a gift received

    Like freedom, for instance.

    Ingratitude. One of the ugliest things in the world.

    I agree.




    I wish I could say I felt the same way.

    The memorial strikes me as depicting the ghosts
    of our valiant dead wandering and lost somewhere
    between heaven and hell.

    I would have preferred something more uplifting
    than this grim realism.

    I suppose it accords well with the grimness of what
    we still face because we denied ourselves victory
    through our own irresolution.

    I prefer to think of them as still on patrol. They are not lost; just still performing their duty. No peace treaty has been signed for that conflict and here we are over 50 years later.

    Yes, I find that memorial sad and unsettling, more so with snow, or in the rain. And I think that was the intent.

    But I do like it despite this, because of who it stands for.
