Sunday, October 30, 2005Why: an editorial cartoon by Mike Luckovich
On Wednesday October 26th Mike Luckovich published a heart wrenching, conscious tugging editorial cartoon, In it he hand wrote the name of every American soldier killed in Iraq. Together, the 2,000 names spell out the question: WHY?
When asked to explain his drawing Luckovich said, "I was trying to think of a way to make the point that this whole war is such a waste. But I also wanted to honor the troops I believe our government wrongly sent to Iraq."
I think that’s the majority of the sentiment among the American people well at least those that I know. We honor our troops yet despise the war they were sent to fight, unlike the 60’s when people didn’t differentiate between soldiers doing their jobs and the war.
