How stupid, when neither the victims nor the victimizers (in this case) are US. If the artist or the city really wanted to be challenging and thought-provoking and making people uncomfortable, they should start putting up statues of American slaves, together with a clear depiction of the slavers as white people, and perhaps statues and memorials dedicated to napalm girl, collateral damage, victims of other American wars of choice, the US supported dictatorships, Abu Ghraib torture, again together with accurate depictions of the victimizers, the torturers and the “brave” American soldiers who have been sufficiently memorialized and glorified elsewhere, but that this silly jingoist nation can’t get enough of.

I stop to miau to cats.
