War Is Peace - 2013
Well, it's that time again: Time for yet America to go it alone, 'git 'er done, and launch a military strike against another question despite there being absolutely no threat against us, all of our allies think its a terrible idea, and no one in America seems to side with the President on going on this attack.
Literally, I don't see any support for a war. There IS some support for a surgical strike, but really, that's tepid at best.
The more you look at this, the more it seems like Obama is, figuratively, alone in this. I want to say literally so bad, because I know even the troops would say this is insane but they still have to follow orders, but yes, this man is alone in this. Congress doesn't even want to vote on this, partly because they're afraid to tell this guy no and embarrass him some more in front of the world for this stupid, stupid idea.
That said, this piece is 25% recylced. I orignally did a "War Is Peace" poster 4 years ago with Obama, but it never got much traction. I really loved the typography, so I wanted to bring it back here. I'm using his official White house photo, and I decided not to show his entire face.
