For those of you who say war is war, art is art, get a hold of yourself! Tactics, especially with infantry, is an art. Not everyone can do it. The F-16 is an incredible machine. Fast and deadly. Who wouldn't want one of those for their commute to work? But it is still a machine, with no thought over what it is used for, be it an airshow, or escorting a few bombers. Anyway, great picture, really shows how freakin' cool a modern fighter jet can be.

for a moment, look at the F-16 for what it truly is, a wonderfully fast, beautiful aeroplane. art.
it truly is just that.
it's just like a handgun; beautiful and deadly in the wrong hands.

You all seem like whiny little uneducated people. Yeah war is bad but most likely it lead to the country you live in today. War allowed for the freedoms most coutries have and history goes to show you can't have peace without war. Most of you don't even know what war is let alone fought for something worth while in your own lives. It's a great plane thank you for your post. To everyone else have a fun time flaming me!

It just amazes me how people like you liquidnight manages to strive out living in the 21st century with the kind of backward and ignorant way of thinking that you have. I thought you and your Afghan Taleban relatives were eliminated by F-16s Falcons.
The internet FYI! is open ended and somehow you can never dictate what others would wish they would want to do responsibly with it.
People like you should stay away from it and go back in the woods were you came from.
Wait for my F-15 Eagle wallpaper upload…

people could not understand why gerrrmany could have supported hitler and his atrocities. i do not belong to those who again did not know anything. you do -obviously- belong to those. as long as you keep your eyes shut and don't visit these countries by yourself, you will repeat germanys atrocity tradition.

I have visited middle and far asia, the usa, and europe and know so far that i can make a reasoneably founded decision for peace alone.

so you call yourself an advocate of PEACE? what a sick joke!

take a good look at how indifferent you are hippie kid. this is just a wallpaper that has nothing to do with war agression of your times. if u dont like it..fine..go ahead,,be my guest but never take it to the point where you are delivering to us your sentiments about wars that only in ur mind existed.

A-10 Warthogs TankBusters are the ones delivering your tankbusting DU bullets FYI. & If you ask me how many of them were fired, your guess is as good as mine. Have a nice day kid!

Thank you all for the comments, either critizising or favouring this wallpaper that i submitted.

It goes on to say that:
" people can look at the same thing but see it differently."

Have a lovely day on our linux machines. i'll never go back to windows again though i am being paid to support them.

Hi,
i was wondering wether this is a photo or or a rendered image?

Looks somehow to cool to be real. Although of course war is bad...

do you know how many tons of depleted uranium were shot from these planes ? do you even have interest in seeing what the u.$. terror regime does with the nuclear attacks ? a regime that terrorizes the world does not deserve acknowledging.

your logic logic is lost on me. it really doesn't make much sense.

yeah. war's terrible. it's meant to be terrible. that's kinda the whole idea. but sometimes you have to fight. think about someone you hold extremely dear. now imagine i were to try to put an end to that person's life. and you knew i was going to do this. would you rather let me go and do that? would you try to stop me? would you fight to protect what you hold dear, or would you just stand there and lose it, just to prove the point that fighting is never worth it?

i don't like war any more than you do. i regret the fact that we have to have it. i wish everything could be solved with politics. but things just don't happen to be that way. sometimes you are left with no other choice but to fight. it should be a last resort. but even last resorts have to be used sometimes.

as for "nuclear attacks"... i'm a chem major. part of the reason i never have time for making wallpapers anymore. but my point is, i know something about it, so listen. depleted uranium contains a small, almost neglible, amount of fissile material. it can't sustain a nuclear reaction. in other words, depleted uranium is little more harmful than most other metals. lead probably causes more problems. matter of fact, i can think of a few dozen different things that people use every day that are many times worse. ever heard of draino? prime example.

all that aside, wallpapers don't have to convey a meaning. sometimes a meaning is implied or even directly stated, yes. but this isn't one of those cases. some might find this picture appealing, citing the beauty of the F-16 as a machine. me, i don't care one way or another. it's a good picture, but it's just really not my thing. i think that what a wallpaper's supposed to do, though, is to just show something people feel glad to have somewhere on earth. everyone has their own concept of beauty. whether you agree with it or not, that's something else in its entirety.

What nuclear Attacks I've been there haven't seen any. Maybe you should not educate yourself with propganda. Unless you've seen it yourself, which you haven't because you would be dead. I could go and say the same thing about the DU that was on the Iraqi, Iran border. Pretty much whatever country out there that has a miltary you could complain about DU, it comes from tanks. Most likely the radiation from the monitor your looking at is affecting you more then the DU you're worring about in which you have no evidence to back up your clami except FUD and I could guantee it is FUD. Get over yourself you're on a Forum for KDE not politics today. Go read your propaganda. Either you like the pic or not vote and go away.

We need not read into the works of others what we see in ourselves, what we fear in ourselves or the anger we carry.

Take what is given to you in the manner and meaning in which the giver intended.

The photo is beautiful. The machine is beautiful. A scientific work of marvel.

gerrrmany doesn't sing nazi songs, nor should you heroize military stuff. especially not while the u$ torture regime is still in power.

War is bad & Weapons are bad. No offence, just the way I think. The photo is nice but the subject is not.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

It takes two sides to go to war, and not every side is always the guilty party. What would the world be like today if no one had gone to war with Nazi Germany? What if the USSR decided that war was too great a price and let the Wehrmacht roll into Moscow without a struggle? What if the US decided to storm the beaches of Normandy without weapons?

it takes only one side to be the aggressor. today politics must strive to act deescalating. everything that promotes war or violence is old-fashioned and will not survive.

And Politics has done so well. If anything politics is why we have wars. You might feel fighting is "old fashioned" but so are civilations that still treat women like property and guess what they still exist. Just because you think some way doesn't mean that's the way it is.

you did not understand my comment ! deescalating does *not* mean to strike back. duplicating evil is why germany went to war and is an indoctrinated scheme in the western world. until you cannot free yourself from that scheme, you will always find a reason to go to war.
