Taliban Graffiti Mural

July 2, 2008

My good pal Ben Arnold of the mighty SuperDeluxe snapped this photo near the Peruvian-Ecuadorian border.

For some reason it reminded me of the recent New Yorker article about Hugo Chavez and his awkward admiration of the Colombian Marxist guerrilla organization Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia, or FARC. I recommend it since it’s hard to find journalism about Chavez that doesn’t either demonize or glorify him.

Anyways, I was telling Ben that it appears that the boat part is meant to look like Washington crossing the Delaware. Doesn’t that flag have a ring of 13 stars?

Compare and contrast at home for fun and education!
