    The more dissimilar our peoples are, the more we also have in common at the very core of our lives. Thank you, Chris.

    Hey Kevin,
    Kiss my camoflaged ass you liberal piece of sub-human slime.

    liberal piece of sub-human slime, eh? Your 'clever' comment reflects badly on you. Ignorance is a weak retort.

    You never know, maybe she is mourning over the death of her son killed by americans. But that is beside the point. I think the photos are meant show show that despite all the so called "differences" we have, that the war is being fought over, we are all human.
