Another monument to killing.

We are we so proud of our ability to kill our fellow human beings?

Are those very young lads wearing military uniforms?

Provocative post, VP.

That's a good place for it - unless it rolls off the pedestal.

Lol @ Tapirgal! I'd rather not see any of them, be it on memorials.

Vogon, I didn't know I was so clever as to get your name and Ciel's in my posts on two consecutive days! And I'm still not sure what Jacques is in Italian. I saw it on the Web, but it's still a mystery to me :) I wasn't sure if Vogon Poets had human names.

@ tapirgal - It's the name of Puccini, Leopardi and Casanova...
