We need a "war" symbol- VANITY
N/A | today | CYP

Posted on 01/17/2003 2:14:47 PM PST by Check_Your_Premises

We need to come up with a "war" symbol that we all can wear proudly, to counteract all the ding dongs who are going to be wearing peace symbols in the days to come.

I was thinking of maybe a circle with a stick guy kicking another stick guy in the keister.

Ideas? If nothing else this ought to spark an amusing thread.

"All we are saying, is give war a chance"

Check the General Forum.

I had some other ideas about how to do this.

How about George Bush kicking around Saddam's head like a soccer ball.

How about a red cross on a white ground? It worked for the Crusaders. The symbolism of the cross is obvious enough. The color symbolism is red for love or charity and white for purity.

The Red Cross might object. Too bad.

How about the American flag?

Works for me. It would really irritiate the peace-niks. They always whine that anyone who protests the war is called "Un-American".

Personally I am not looking forward to a war with and occupation of Iraq. Ridding Iraq of the Baath Party could prove to be a tricky and costly endeavor.

I am more angry with the anti-war left for their blatant hypocrisy and positioning for political purposes.

Has to be the American flag, this display of patriotism drives liberals around the bend. They almost had riggors about the flag displays nation wide after 9-11.

I like that one. I think the b-52 would be the best choice. It has a long fuselage and wings that would really look like a peace symbol when placed inside a circle, and there is simply no bigger can of airborne whoop ass anywhere.

That goes without saying, but I was looking for something along the lines of the christian fish being modified to have legs with "darwin" written inside. I want to co-opt and mock the peace symbol all at once. I think the b-52 inside a circle would do that nicely.

It's kinda crummy looking but I don't have anything worth a crap to draw with. Somebody else can do better I'm sure.

I can't find an example, but there was a modified version of the "peace symbol" back during the Cold War. If you looked closely, the downswept "legs" of the design were narrowed toward the ends - like swept-back bomber wings. There were two little lines resembling jet engine nacelles on each "wing". Beneath the symbol was the caption: "DROP IT!!" Yep, it was a peace symbol morphed into a B-52 silhouette. Appropriate, since the B-52 can make an area peaceful in one heck of a hurry. :-)

I remember a T shirt, it had the old peace symbol on it. It said "peace the old fashioned way," but in place of the lines in the middle of the circle it had the silhouette of a B-52.

The "w" hand sign would work fine, but if there's an html guru out there who can take the ancient symbol for steel as reproduced in Rudolph Koch's Book of Signs and paste it here, I think it would be acceptable, paintable and easily drawn counter to the footprint of the American chicken.

Here's an entertaining one, from strategic-air-command.com.

Something about grabbing the enemy in a manner such that their hearts and minds will follow:

Surely one of our resident Photoshop wizards could have great fun with this.

You find it on the 'net and I'll make sure it gets posted here. Just post the URL.

A variation of the sign for Zeus and/or Jupiter. It has also been used for steel in alchemy. and were other signs for steel.

I was about to say..."where did you find that?".. I just read a book called "The Three Books of Occult Philosophy" by Henry Cornelius Agrippa of Nettesheim (14th century), Donald Tyson, editor..and that may have been a symbol of war that you were speaking of.
When the US goes to war, isn't a congressional decree enough..or do we need a specific symbol?

We already had the oil and walked away from it in 91.
After we put out all the fires,of course. Would have been a perfect opportunity to stay and "protect" them. We walked away. You are an idiot. It's not about--oh never mind.

I'm not too sure about the slogan though. Someone else might have a better idea for that.

"Those who hold America in contempt for its lack of refinement (this writer always has held the term "American culture" to be an oxymoron) should think carefully about this conclusion. From their founding on Christmas Day 800 AD, when Charlemagne accepted the crown of the revived Roman Empire, the institutions of the West have been formed in response to external threat. The Holy Roman Empire of the High Middle Ages, Tolkien's conscious model for the Kingdom of Gondor, arose in response to the incursions of Arabs in the south, Vikings in the north, and Magyars in the West. Boorish and gruff as the new American Empire might seem, it is an . . . anti-empire (( link // fr post )) populated by reluctant heroes who want nothing more than to till their fields and mind their homes, much like Tolkien's Hobbits. Under pressure, though, it will respond with a fierceness and cohesion that will surprise its adversaries."
