British street artist Banksy, who currently resides in New York City for its high pedestrian traffic and plentiful hiding spots, recently took his stencils and spray cans to a truck trailer and an old Mazda to make a commentary about war, according to a video report by Newsy.

Part of the canvas, a late-1990s Mazda Protege, is a sub-$3,000 used car at best, but we're sure having Banksy's art sprayed onto it has greatly increased its value, as it did to a piece at a Former Packard plant in Detroit a few years ago. The same goes for the trailer, which looks like it would be right at home attached to a U-Haul rental truck.

The graffito, painted in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, was accompanied by a link to some disturbing audio from a controversial 2007 military video leaked by Wikileaks in 2010. Head on below to watch the video report, and be sure to visit Banksy's website if you want to see the painting with the audio (listener discretion advised).

      As long as Banksy is talking about wars, how about illegal occupation and a savage and barbaric warfare...........................UK launched on Argentina in the so called Falklands war. Last time i checks UK was still occupying those islands, maybe Banksy just wants to critique his adopted country...USA.

        The Falkland Islands is a British overseas territory (just as Guam is a US territory), with a population of mainly British descent. Argentina invaded the Falklands in 1982. Say what you will about the rights and wrongs of overseas territories, but as far as the British are concerned, they were merely protecting their own people. You can bet that if a foreign power invaded a US territory, the US would not sit by and do nothing.

          Well, Seal Rchin, if the Dominican Republic or Haiti were populated exclusively by Chinese citizens as the Falkand Islands are by British (most of whom have lived there for generations), it would be a bit of a different story.

          UK can claim Falklands all it wants, it has as much right to it as China does to Dominican Republic and Haiti.

        since Banksy is anonymous and does his work in the USA i think it is only fitting to express concern for the country he displays his art in
