Or, y'know, you could just go with a Unicorn on your ankle

From the WaPo:

Mike Ergo, 22, a former Marine, had specific instructions for his tattoo artist. The enemy's hair had to be curly and dark, the beard thick. This was part of a face etched into his memory, that of the first insurgent he killed during the battle of Fallujah last November.

Ergo wanted it to come out just right.

In the tattoo, inked onto the inside of his left forearm in April, the enemy fighter is being slain by Saint Michael, the archangel, who stands, sword drawn, with his foot on the back of the man's head. The image is a reminder, Ergo said, that he survived one of the deadliest, bloodiest battles of the war -- and the other guy didn't. [emphasis added]

View from the Left: But don’t you see that we, AmeriKKKa, created these terrorists? Our years of arrogant imperialism, colonialism and capitalism reduced these people to poverty, reduced their once proud cultures to a dirty hovel of McDonalds and Coca-Cola—they pick their way amid the detritus of globalization that has enriched racist Western “Civilization” All they really want is recognition! Their attacks are no more than the justice of roosting chickens! We, not they, are the real cowards! In fact, they are the REVOLUTION, the Minutemen, and their numbers will grow -- and they will win!

View from the Right: Heh—when you flex the terrorist makes a funny face! Heh, heh, Mr. Funny Face!

update: seriously though, sweet tattoo, no?
