New Ground Zero Statue
MDC enjoys the conspiracy play down at the World Trade Center, or is it Ground Zero ?
The sculpture that stood in the middle of the World Trade Center plaza when the center was destroyed cannot find a permanent home. But another big bronze that has been in New York City less than a year already has a highly visible spot at ground zero.
Commuters streaming out of the PATH train station at the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan on Wednesday morning may have spotted the shrouded newcomer:
a 16-foot-tall sculpture of a Special Operations soldier on horseback. The statue is a memorial to the troops who led the American invasion of Afghanistan in response to the Sept. 11 attacks on the trade center and the Pentagon.
The statue, known as “De Oppresso Liber,” a motto of the Army Special Forces, was hauled to a spot near the PATH station entrance on Vesey Street on Tuesday evening.
MDC asks, all that military money is not needed if we fight by horseback.
