It's really frustrating to see governments acting like annoying capricious children, trying to gain attention and claim rights. What is wrong with the Red Cross's original emblem? Personally, I thought it was the most tasteful emblem that ever existed. But no, the Israeli are unhappy. Who, lying on their deathbed would care about a freaking emblem on a flag? The mission of the Red Cross is humanitarian, not political. It's not the place to argue about the symbols. And if the Israelis or whatever people do not want any help from an organization with no intention other than help, then they simply don't deserve any help. The age of symbolism is long gone. No wonder the more sensible diplomats are frustrated:
We're actually trying to get a solution for the Red Cross, but some seem to want us to try to solve the entire Middle East conflict.
And now due to those fuckheads the lovely simplistic symbol I've always associated with peace and humanitarian mission is going to turn to a red square that reminds me of a table cloth. When are those bloody politicians are going to gain some common sense??? I say cull them, cull them all
