Was this wall was recently painted over...for implying the Military were Evil People? (This was originally the 2nd wall of the four, right after the women in the Caskets). Or for being ugly and using too much blue? Or are we all hearing enough about how evil foreign military powers are these days so we don't have to be reminded of the 'threat'? I don't care how much the DIA people want to spin and BS about what a touching story of world peace this whole thing is/was... this part of the mural had no redeeming message. Imagine walking through the airport and in your hurry to catch a flight, this is the only artwork you really saw? Welcome to Frickin' Denver!

We have a huge military figure with a sword in one hand and a huge machine gun in the other (you know what they saw about guys who need big guns...). The tip of his huge sword rams the butt of a dove. Subtle imagery Fellini would love.

(Remember from the previous page - I said to notice the Dove has a partner? It's important? Well look here - Darth is poking the dove up the privates with his sword and the other dove is nowhere to be seen. I find this quite uncalled for).

He also wears a mask that has scowling Alien eyes and wrinkles on it like actual skin, making the face look more like some Sci-fi Bio-construct than a typical gas mask This is obviously the guy who is the toppled statue is on the previous page. Which makes sense then, since this wall came before that one and so seeing this, you'd then understand who/what the toppled statue was in that mural, had it been next. As it is now you don't know what the heck it is or means.

The emblem on his hat appears to be an eagle with spread wings standing on a (half) globe; pretty reminiscent of the metal emblems that were on Nazi uniforms.

Nazi Emblem

On the right side you have what looks like the shell of a destroyed church. On the left you have a line of weeping women holding limp, dead babies that stretches off into the horizon. Next to that are children sleeping on a pile of bricks. One holds a teddy bear as if to drive the "innocent young child" image home to us. (more about this scene later...)

In the right lower corner (you can just barely see it in the photo) is a piece of paper on which is part of an actual poem written by a child who was interned and died in a Nazi concentration camp (move along .. don't dwell too long on the fact this thing's chock full of Nazi/German/White Guy Supremacy stuff. Or these rumors that the Nazis never really left power and how we brought all the Nazi rocket scientists to the US after the war to work here). The letter reads:

"I once was a little child who longed for other worlds
but I am no more a child for I have known fear
I have learned to hate how tragic, then, is youth
which lives with enemies, with gallows ropes.
Yet, I still believe I only sleep today. that I'll wake up,
a child again, and start to laugh and play.

Hama Herchenberg, 14 years old..died December 18, 1943
Auschwitz Concentration camp".

Is this saying we're headed for camps all over again if we don't behave? One second we're in Future Nuclear Extinction Hell and then we're back in Hitler's hell. No mention of the current Children's Hells found today - nah - we're going for blatant common-denominator shock images here.

One more wall to go, because they didn't get into drugs yet. You have to have drugs when you have mayhem, slaughter, death, infanticide, genocide, extinction, famine and walls of flames - sure ya do! Or maybe it's genetically altered plants that save the day? All that is missing are some naked women, but I guess that'd be offensive in a public area.
