Fair enough. Depends on the message you would want to be displaying. In this case the Mayor was attempting to symbolize freedom and hope for the
future. Following that same logic the children are the future of a country and soldiers did help free them from tyranny of Saddam.
If you were serious at making such a work of art with body parts I would be sure to make the piece a timeline of death and destruction from Saddam's
reign to the present. Be sure to include death of Iraqi Citizens by Saddam, Coalitions, and Insurgents. After all we want to display the true
struggle of the people of Iraq. The piece would probably end up in a museum.
Personally, I'd rather be optimistic and display the statue of the child and soldier.
