    I”ll bet nobody knew about the Afghan games.

    Ouch! What ever happened to Robert Frost?

    He is buried behind the Old Church in Bennington Vermont. Oh, you probably didn’t mean “literally”.

    Pretty nasty put-down by Trudeau… I wonder where he got the idea male pedophilia is part of Afghan culture. They were sure upset about the Kite Runner.
    I thought Trudeau was a sensitive liberal respectful of other cultures.

    Wasn’t there something in one of the Wikileaks documents from last week about “dancing boys”?

    I’d wager that few under the age of fifty even noticed the Frost reference.

    Hey, even sensitive liberals have their limits: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/dancingboys/

    yo - this is a fantasy in the mind of a young, dangerous Walter Mitty.

    Bennington…..my alma mater…..(sigh)….and miles to go before I sleep.

    Ransom - Although in this case you wouldn’t want to take the road less traveled cuz it’s probably mined..

    Incognito,

    I think you probably wouldn’t want to take the road most traveled either and for the same reason. Better to head out in the open country.

    @Commentator; I don’t see this as a put-down of Afghan culture. I think it’s meant to be a satire of what people think Afghan culture is.

    For example, do you think that in rendering judgement on two men who had had a quarrel, a judge would likely tell one man to marry the other’s sister? But it shows how we expect the Afghanis to treat women as property.

    This cartoon shows all the stereotypes that GT could find. It wouldn’t surprise me at all to find that they weren’t true, or not the way we see it.

    Look at the follow through on that carcass toss!! Red Rascal is ready to move up from the minors to the major league of carcass tossing. And if it’s cool to have government dudes fondling my genitals at the airports, what’s wrong with dancing boys?

    First Wikileaks and now Doonesbury releasing sensitive poop on our Afghan allies. The warlords will never trust us now.

    What’s worse, a gay crusader hitting on your dancing boys, or catching an infidel in the sack with your wife?

    Last seen, Jeff had just informed his boss that he promised a $50,000,000 “gift” to the Afghan president. Let me guess: Jeff is now having end-of-life delusions, like the character Travis Bickle had at the conclusion of the movie “Taxi Driver” (1976).
