    Oh, The reptile and the mammal should be friends,
    The reptile and the mammal should be friends,

    One of them likes to lie and sun,
    The other should have cut and run,
    The reptile and the mammal should have been friends,

    Is that an Al Jolson pose?

    To be, or not to be, that is the question—

    Whether ’tis Nobler in the mind to suffer

    The Slings and Arrows of outrageous Fortune, (errata: ow, ooh, stop that)

    Or to take Arms against a Sea of troubles,

    And by opposing end them?

    To die, to sleep—No more; and by a sleep, to say we end The Heart-ache, and the thousand Natural shocks That Flesh is heir to? ‘Tis a consummation Devoutly to be wished. To die, to sleep, To sleep, perchance to Dream; Aye, there’s the rub, For in that sleep of death, what dreams may come, When we have shuffled off this mortal coil, Must give us pause. There’s the respect That makes Calamity of so long life: For who would bear the Whips and Scorns of time, The Oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s Contumely, The pangs of despised Love, the Law’s delay, The insolence of Office, and the Spurns That patient merit of the unworthy takes, When he himself might his Quietus make With a bare Bodkin? Who would these Fardels bear, To grunt and sweat under a weary life, But that the dread of something after death, The undiscovered Country, from whose bourn No Traveler returns, Puzzles the will, And makes us rather bear those ills we have, Than fly to others that we know not of. Thus Conscience does make Cowards of us all, And thus the Native hue of Resolution Is sicklied o’er, with the pale cast of Thought, And enterprises of great pitch and moment, With this regard their Currents turn awry, And lose the name of Action. Soft you now, The fair Ophelia. Nymph, in all thy Orisons Be thou all my sins remembered.

    - Hamlet, Piglet’s older brother…

    This is a brilliantly clever reveal. Neathery is a genius. In panel 3, it’s a view of a view of a resistance fighter putting up a defiant defence to the last. In panel 4, it’s a poor figure on his knees, having bee shot in the back. His face in panel 3 is grim determination. Then seeing what we see in 4, we go back and look at his face again, and it’s dumb agony and death. And Piotr’s words are a blend of propaganda, resignation and disgust.

    Mention of “future generations” implies there will be future generations…

    And, why couldn’t they stay?

    The Fool On The Sill
    by Jenner
    to the tune of The Fool On The Hill by Lennon and Mc Cartney

    Day after day, alone on a sill,
    The man with the reckless grin is kneeling perfectly still
    But nobody wants to know him
    They can see that he’s just a fool
    And he always looks defiant

    But the fool on the sill
    Sees the blood flowing down
    And the eyes in his head
    See his world coming down

    Barb in his hands, fletch in the aft
    The last of a thousand martyrs falling foul of a shaft
    But nobody ever hears him
    They don’t need what he has to sell
    And he only knows of coldness

    But the fool on the sill
    Sees the blood flowing down
    And the eyes in his head
    See his world coming down

    And nobody likes his story
    Doesn’t end very well at all
    They’re planning to write it over

    But the fool on the sill
    Sees the blood flowing down
    And the eyes in his head
    See his world coming down

    He never listens to them
    He stands above them all
    Not forever

    The fool on the sill
    Sees the blood flowing down
    And the eyes in his head
    See their world coming down

    It’s been said before but it bears repeating: The history of a war is written by the victors.

    Were these lizards former members of the ShutzStaffel? The Museum of a conquered race, the lame excuses for genocide, the willingness to rewrite history to make themselves look good. An air of arrogance and superiority.
    Yep, that’s everything on the checklist.
    I’d like to see how these these bozos deal with a cold snap!
    They’ll be nice and vulnerable…

    “No sense in forcing our guilt upon future generations…”

    That is brilliant. You have to wonder how many atrocities have been written out of the history books with that rationalization. And how many might have been avoided had they not.

    Bravo, Aaron, for a look into ourselves.

    There were insectoids involved, too? ;)
    Seriously, you are correct with summing up the change in perspective. Magnifying the image was revealing!

    Those who don’t learn from history’s mistakes are doomed to repeat them..

    Also putting a statue like that up “in memoriam” implies at least a mention in the Official History. Depends on who writes the Official History, though.
