    They sheltered the 9-11 terrorists. We have every right to be there.

    We had every right to be there, get the job done and then lea – oh, look over there, Iraq!

    Oh please. We didn’t occupy JAPAN as long as we’ve been in Afghanistan.

    Have to hand it to Mike31g. All week long, he has been providing links to a story arc about college students not only not serving but being completely ignorant of what is going on. This is a perfect capper. Mike won’t need to provide a link today.

    To be honest, I was not planning an ‘alternative’ rerun anyway. However, as you say, I doubt I could have picked a better cartoon to finish the week. Thanks for both your comments.

    We still have a couple of hundred tanks in Germany to protect Europe from the Warsaw pact.

    45k in Germany, 10k in Italy, 52k in Japan, and lots more in overseas deployments costing us taxpayers a bundle. In all 175k overseas with 68k in Afganistan. Costing a bundle for us to be the worlds cop and provide a nice reason for military bigwigs to have a European vacation.

    I don’t think Trudeau’s point. The strip is a rerun and about the lack of attention the war in Afghanistan gets. And he’s right. The only time its in the news is when American servicemen die.

    The point of the article is how little attention the news media and Americans in general notice that we are still over there. Also, this is a rerun predating the sequester.

    It makes me sad that our troops are forgotten, thanks for reminding us.
