"….I keep thinking too of a picture earlier in the show of a soldier in Iraq which shows him on a road cluttered with rubble, his back to us and a GI Joe sticking up from his backpack. Taken in 2004 by Anja Niedringhaus, the image is initially amusing then immensely alarming. The context is all too literal. How many little boys who once begged their parents to buy them GI Joes as children are still playing the game of war? Perhaps war makes children of us all…."
