2/22/2003: Silly pro-war demonstration



The official caption says this is part of a pro-war demonstration in Denver and that these Coloradans are marching on the capitol. Which tells me one thing: both pro- and anti-war marchers have an equal capacity for nonsense.

I think historical recreation is interesting if it tells us something about history; it reminds us what conditions were like and such. And this is kinda interesting if it gives us a fresh look at what US soldiers looked like all along.

But as a pro-war demonstration, it's kinda dumb; all it does is remind us that we have a military tradition. If anything, this image says "let's go to war, because that's what we always do!"

A cool pic though, lets see:

- Revolutionary War
- French and Indian war
- War of 1812
- Civil War
- WW1
- WW2
- The Korean War
- Vietnam
- Gulf War/Current

I wonder what hoops they jumped through to be able to tote their rifles? Of course we are talking Co. not NY here.

Funny how the definitive 'Evolution' image goes with:

<img src="http://chem.lapeer.org/Bio1Docs/Images/Evolution.jpg">

Personally I think we're going the wrong way.



Torrere  Saturday Feb 22 03:33 PM

Revised for the twenty-first century.



Nothing But Net  Saturday Feb 22 03:54 PM

Notice their 'rifles' get shorter as the years go by?

Minutemen, indeed!




wolf  Saturday Feb 22 06:05 PM

1. Hopefully, it takes more than a minute.

2. It's not the size of the rifle, it's the skill with which it is aimed.

That to me is actually a pretty decent pro-test. The only problem being the 256 or so incursions not represented. Anyone notice we've misplaced 3 "civilian contractors" er CIA dudes in Colombia. Griff who should know better than to post with six fingers o' Black Bush in his belly

Ah, the return of the wise alkie sage.



Griff  Saturday Feb 22 08:06 PM

but every time I look at that ugly moon
it reminds me of you



Cam  Sunday Feb 23 03:28 AM

No see here is the wise alkie sage.
Luckily tonight I know I'm drunk so I'm paying attention to my spelling.
Not that that mean as ton when your drunk you still can't tell what your doing.

No, French & Indian was before the Rev. War.

Therefore, I think it's

*Revolutionary War
*War of 1812
*Mexican War
*Civil War
*WW1
*WW2
*The Korean War
*Vietnam
*Gulf War

....which still skips the Spanish-Amer war.

Too bad you're out in the midwest, Cam...and too bad James is in Colorado. If you guys were closer to the East Coast, the two of you and Griff and I could all get together, drink senselessly, and create one big thread of obnoxiousness.



Griff  Sunday Feb 23 01:42 PM

[cornered] Oh how easily we mock that which we are not intellectually or emotionally prepared to understand. Why do our artful lives frighten you so?[/madman]

muahahahahahaha. yes yes, the fear we could strike into those that were sober.


deepandchilled03  Sunday Feb 23 02:48 PM

Ahh.. good call. I was confident on the French and Indian War and Rev. War timeline. And now that I look at it, that dress does look like something in the Mexican War. The uniforms are hard to tell from back then. It's like someone that is non-american trying to see the difference between Korean And WW2 uniforms.

Check out the back row. There is a guy with a navy blue cap, blue pants (far right); to his left, a guy in red pants and again a blue, or perhaps black cap; right behind Cival War is another with grey pants (the South?); and what appears to be thei final one is in white pants behind Mr.Blue in the frow.

Any ideas on who/what, with so little to go on...

Quzah.

I think your CLOSE - the only change is "Current" - It looks (at a distance) to be "Gulf War I" - there are some changes to current, but they are slight (I don't think they use those goggles anymore), I know the vests have changed, but I can't tell from the photo which it is (the new ones are better and lighter) - I also can't tell if he's carrying a M-16 (actually probably an AR-15 - semi auto) M16-A2, or a M-4


Torrere  Monday Feb 24 02:27 PM

Whoa! I hadn't even noticed that there was a back row!
