No, just don't. Don't turn this into a battle for who's more evil than the other. You said yourself, war is war, people die.

War is perhaps the most horrific of all Mankind's inventions. However, it has also proved the only effective manner of bringing about change.

Killing children is cruel no exceptions but I can understand why war takes a toll not only on the people who were part of it but also those who served in these wars.

violence can never be forgotten

Before I begin this is my personal opinion, I am not saying anyone is right or wrong.
Yes, however, it is a necessary evil. Sadly enough we need war in order to advance more efficiently or to remove a threat to one's well being. 
Yes some war can be avoided, yet some is needed to accomplish a much greater goal
Personally I would be sad to see this happen in real life, however, I would be grateful that this child no longer has to experience war and hatred any longer.

It makes sense since music is one of the many aspects of reality that can make a person feel emotions, in this case it can interpret what one person can value or suffer on war without changing war true nature, pretty much I must say this is such a well made work

War is cruel... But its a part of nature... And you can't defeat nature... Conflict is only natural.

P.S. with one of your earlier commenters who didn't like the picture and yelled it out and you stayed calm and explanted what it was suppose to represent, well done...  I'm glad that there are artists/people out there who won't just block out the commenter or give a long insulting bullshit speech about what it was suppose to represent, but instead you explained respectfully of what your art means. I respect you and I like your work.   Clap

Hello, glad you like my work and this particular idea.  Sadly yes, what i find unfair, is that best part of the reasons for conflicts don't directly affect the people who die in wars. Mostly are struggles for power between the king pins of the world, and the ones who die in the war fields have nothing to do with this.
P.S.
I believe in tolerance, and that one should respect other people point of view. Not necessary except them ofcaurse.
Besides art is very subjective, i may want to say one thing, other may understand something absolutely different. I don't see a way to correct other people vision with insult, most likely this will happen if you just explain what you try to say. Than maybe, just maybe one can change somebody else vision.

I'm sure it's like this. The image should represent only the great suffer for the innocent. War have too many faces and i cannot describe them all in one image. It's just a pale try to describe one of them.
As i write under the image: 'war can be really cruel' That's the idea.

I think that your argument is entirely childish. I saw your comment, and I couldn't help myself from asking you a couple of noninclusive questions. If war is the only solution inevitable, does that mean you think that the world will end with a enormous conflict? Blood shed and harsh natures killing children and women. If so, you have a very pessimistic view. I also don't think you should defend our military. They have done some inexcusably cruel actions. Just like any one else in the world. It is like saying Pearl Harbor was the worst thing in American history, when we had troops placed near an island of theirs getting ready to do the exact same. This image is powerful, stating that there is a type of cruelness/darkness in humanity that is incurable. She/He is not picking in specifically the military, but when you associate things with war, you immediately think of men in a uniform. You missed the idea and meaning behind this image. It is metaphorical, not straight forward. I haven't commented to start an argument as I said before, I just felt that maybe my opinion was worth listening to.

no offense, but... US isnt the only country that suffered. if you want to know, you americans have gotten out of WWII very well - look at russia, or germany, for that matter.

Fathers, Husbands, Mothers, Wives, Grandfathers, Grandmothers, and many others.... they didnt die saving your country... they died because politicians felt like making people die in order to achieve unnecessary short-term goals. the same story happens in every country of every war: all sides lose, none wins.
