I liked the animation but..
... I found the message a bit ridiculous. The way you dedicated the flash to "the rebels" just seemed stupid. You could have saved it if you had referenced some real life rebels like the Zapatista or something but without that it just seemed like you were stretching out the flash for the sake of it.
"THIS IS NOT A COMMENTARY ON IRAQ. Do not confuse Rebels with Terrorist Insurgents. Think American Revolution 1770's"
One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter. Who are you to say that their cause isn't as valid as the American revolution?
