US Military Patches

So Easy...
I just came across these US military patches. As a graphic artist I was really interested in the really high level of humor these displayed. I don’t see anything here as portraying any kind of contestable sentiment, but rather wondering if the humor implied is the result of coping with a stressful situation.

Anyway, where they are.

    Yea, but pure genious would summarize this article in a patch:

    The United States did not invade Iraq to “stop the violence”. That was never the goal. So, it’s foolish to say that the surge achieved its objective. It hasn’t. Nor has the surge “created the space for a political solution”; another meaningless slogan regurgitated endlessly by the Bush troupe. The political agenda in Iraq has failed utterly. We know that because the Shiite-led government has asked the US to leave “as soon as possible” and for the Bush administration to set a “timetable for withdrawal”. Not a “time horizon” as the administration-spinmiesters like to say; a Timetable, which means a fixed time when the United States must leave. So, if the Iraqi government has asked the US to leave; where is the “political solution” the surge was supposed to create? There isn’t one. The mission has failed; it’s as plain as day. This is not an arguable point.

    What the surge really proves is that ethnic cleansing works. Baghdad was a city of roughly 65% Sunnis. Now it is nearly 75% Shiites. Most of the million or so Iraqis who have been killed in the conflict, and most of the 4 million who are either internally displaced or have become refugees, are probably Sunnis. This is an important point and one that Americans should understand. The surge was created to disguise what was really taking place on the ground; ethnic cleansing on a massive scale. No one disputes this. The Sunnis have been effectively purged from the capital. That’s not a “political solution”. It is a war crime.

    More important, the United States military has helped the Shiites win their war against the Sunnis. The Shiites control Baghdad now; the Sunnis will never get it back. That is why they are moving on to the next phase of their strategy, which is to demand that the foreign troops leave. So, at least in one respect the surge has worked; it has helped the Shiites and their allies in Tehran win the war. Bush has helped to strengthen Ahmadinejad. Was that the objective?
