This year, we will commemorate the deaths of millions of men during WWI, one century ago. That's why I want my first illustration of the year to be about them.
Under the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, there is the tomb of an unknown soldier : Le Soldat Inconnu.
It is meant to be a reminder of the stupidity of war. But, lately, I heard a feminist say "there is one person that is even more unknown than the Unknown Soldier... his wife!".
I also remember a French minister ( a woman ) pushing the obscenity by saying that "the worst victims of war are women, because they lose their husbands, their sons, their brothers...".
Yep... men just die... that's not so terrible compared to women's tears, right?
And all those who think that men love war ; all those who think that men have fun during war... have my scorn.
Here is the illustration in English :
The illustration in French :
And finally a close-up on the soldier :
