So is that main picture the only picture? I see someone flipping off a sign that is telling them to be quiet and respect. I thought, based off the
responses in this thread (was reading on my mobile), that she was literally in front of a tomb, posing with a middle finger to the tombstone or
She's clearly directing her rebellion and disrespect at the sign, and not at the soldiers. I understand her reasoning and I understand why people are
offended as well.
I am not a big fan of the mighty US war machine and you can check out the history on my posts.
However this is one time I will say this is wrong all the way, never thought I would say this but here it is to read in all it's glory.
Then again, she has the right to voice her opinion.
What's worse is I don't think she was expressing any opinion whatsoever. She wasn't thinking at all. She was just trying to do something funny and
- A. It wasn't funny. B. She's THIRTY YEARS OLD! We might expect this type of childish behavior from a young teen, but not a grown adult.

I can understand being upset about war...any war and not liking it; but to go to a tomb which honors the men and women who have perished in war;
saying hateful words and using hateful body language; is really offensive.
Talk about "Freedom of speech" all you want...but this young woman ; I believe... took it too far.
I think, actually it looks like she is doing it to the sign not the monument. Wow really sucks to be her today. she should have photo shopped out the
monument behind her then it would be mildly funny . I think this is a major over reaction to what I would have to say is a joke gone wrong. It is
pretty obvious she was making fun of the sign not the monument
example... If you were to take a photo of yourself standing behind a sign that said no trespassing beyond this point are you having a laugh at the
sign or what is behind the sign?
Shouldn't have gone to war. Shouldn't have enlisted. Should have refused to go blow up people on the other side of the world going about their daily
lives. Shouldn't serve the petrodollar and US imperialists.
