[Marxism] Bring Them Home Now!

One of the most popular buttons during the fight against the Vietnam 
War was an image of a seated soldier with his head in his hand (black 
color) and the slogan "Bring the Troops Home Now!"

The image should be changed. It looks like a WWII GI, but the slogan 
remains apt, howeverI think that it can be simplified into:
Bring Them Home Now!

There remains the problem of the image.

We can come up with a neutral image, one that doesn't imply that the 
soldier him/herself is upset about the war. It can be used by both 
those who claim to support the troops and want them home and those who 
feel that volunteer soldiers are also part of the problem.

The thrust of the demand, which is against the government, remains the 
same.

If a soldier is used, it shouldn't be one seated and slumping. There 
could be a helicopter, a tank, the word Iraq with a slash through it, 
etc.

There may already be some like this. If there are, perhaps some 
contributer can indicate the urls.
