"Do you prefer....?"

This is an instance of a drawing being an ouch! When life is being handled as if it was a matter of taking tea. As is case of the Syrian massacre as seen from Europe these days. 

Juan Zero draws in a sweeping line for letters and figurative elements alike, which softens the sharp precision of both: The Syrian flag personified, the two of them turning their back to us, and both transgressed by the blue for that borderline of hopelessness. A devastatingly true scene of today.

The cartoon hurts all the more in that this blog is written in the country geographically placed between Germany and Sweden; the country with a disgraceful government doing its utmost not only to neglect, but to abuse those in most need of its taking action.
