The Wrong War in the Wrong Place at the Wrong Time?

The Wrong War in the Wrong Place at the Wrong Time?

This is NOT an anti-war painting. It was painted in response to John Kerry's self-serving quote: "The wrong war in the prong Place at the wrong time." In regard to our decision to depose Saddam Hussein from Iraq. The painting is a series of 5 canvases of various sizes; each telling it's own story about the war.
In the first frame, is a murdered Iraqi left in the desert by Saddam's murder squad. In the second frame is a map of Iraq with locations of bio-weapons attacks against the Kurds. In the third frame there are bodies that were recovered from mass graves lined up for identification in the background. In the foreground, there is a pile of cattle and human bones; drawing a parallel to the treatment of the Iraqi people by their government. Throughout these three scenes are clouds of chemical gas and the Kerry quote.
In the two bottom frames, there is a rendering of Saddam's statue being torn down in front of one of his palaces and a portrait of an Iraqi woman who has voted for the first time. The sun is simultaneously setting on the reign of terror and rising on a new Iraq.
