It's about the Army!
11 May 2008 | by (belgium) – See all my reviews

This is a funny cartoon. Short as it may be, it holds some secret truths. I love bears, so I like cartoon bears also. In this short cartoon, there is a lot of criticism. The army is portrayed badly in this short cartoon, but this picture shows every kid around the world that going to the army isn't as cool as it seems. That's true: it isn't fun and games in the army. In case of danger, you must go to war to protect the nation. There are no winners in a war, only losers (or so this cartoon shows). The inner message of it is worthwhile watching the 10 minutes time in your life. But it's really a shame I had to rewrite my opinion before they would put it on this site.
