Did you ever think that the people who created this ad might not have known that the building was a mosque? Unless there was a sign out front I wouldn't have.
TM Advertising is fast establishing a reputation for crass advertising. A previous ad for Bell's AH-1Z attack helicopter showed the heavily armed aircraft taking off out of a flaming background. The copy read: "We made it beautiful. Because it's the last thing that some people will ever see." brandrepublic.com
Philip M. Condit, CEO, Boeing of Chicago, Illinois
2002 Salary: $4.1 million
Campaign Contributions in 2002: $1.6 million, Military Contracts 2000-2003: $60 billion
Products: F-15 fighter, C-17 air transport, Apache Helicopter, JDAM "smart" bombs.
The world's largest aerospace company has a role in all three of the Pentagon’s advanced fighter plane programs: the F-22 Raptor, the Joint Strike Fighter/F-35, and the F-18 and it makes both F-15 fighter and Apache helicopters. Caught knowingly selling flawed parts for the Apache that led to thousands of unnecessary landings and at least one fatal crash, Boeing has paid tens of millions of dollars in fines. Boeing also oversees many of the Pentagon’s missile defense programs, operates the Space Shuttle, makes the guidance systems for the Minuteman and Peacekeeper missiles and builds precision munitions such as the Standoff Land Attack Missile-Expanded Response (SLAM-ER), Conventional Air-Launched Cruise Missile (CALCM), Brimstone and Harpoon missiles, and JDAM "smart" bombs. Boeing’s JDAM (joint direct attack munitions) kit fits over a "dumb" missile and coverts it into a satellite-guided weapon using movable fins and a satellite positioning system to make a “smart” bomb. But there’s a downside: the precision JDAMs have repeatedly missed their targets in Iraq and Afghanistan, hitting both civilians and US soldiers.

Why is it politically incorrect to admit we are in a war? Can you imagine if WWII was the same way, where we could not have the propoganda posters about pearl harbor ect. because some japanese people may not want to buy Chrystlers? You have got to be kidding me. The ad reflected reality, and Beoing needs to apologize. When people completely lose their backbone?

But seriously, why are they even advertising in the first place?

Ah, the sweet scent of American Pride.
Only in America you will not be bashed up for saying "war is cruel but I like to make fun of it".
Simply put, the ones supporting the advertisement is true portrayal of ignorance at its best.
Go ahead SELF-RIGHTEOUS and JUST Americans. Do what you please.
