    I hate it when a toon is so weak and so late into the “discussion”.

    Someone did a similar cartoon when the Korean 747 was shot down years ago during the Reagan administration.

    What, no image of Putin personally pulling the trigger of the missile launcher? Or riding the missile up towards the airliner while waving a cowboy hat in some sort of reverse Dr. Strangelove maneuver?
    This does not meet our standards of sensationalism, Mr. Holbert. Consider yourself on notice!

    I disagree with you all and agree with the aptness of this toon as there hasn’t been enough discussion on WHY and HOW the separatists shot down the plane, and WHAT went through their minds when they did it, instead of just this drawn out discussion of IF they did it, now muffled by the events in Gaza. How could they have been so inept or evil to shoot down a civilian plane? Did they not have the ability to see the Malaysian airlines symbol? What kind of threat did they think it proposed to them 25 miles from the Russian border, heading toward Russia at 30,000 feet and hundreds of miles an hour? How in the world did this present a military threat that justified shooting a plane from the sky? If the plane was so obviously going to be over Russia in less than a few minutes, why wouldn’t they hold off on shooting as hmmm, maybe it’s a civilian plane or hmmm, maybe the Russians can take care of it as it will be in their airspace any second now. I certainly think these are valid and very interesting questions that need investigation and answering, and the lampooning of the mystery of it all is addressed well in this toon. So, for once, I agree with Holbert. Your criticisms are jumping the gun. hahaha, yeah not funny given the gravity of the situation, but couldn’t help it.

    Holbert could have included the two Ukrainian Sukhoi fighters brought down after the idiotic (accidental or deliberate) shoot down of a civilian aircraft by the “rebels”.

    A work, or race, horse distracted easily by false or misleading guidance, wears “blinders” to limit his focus on the truth and job at hand. Conservative Americans (the vast majority of “media” outlets as well), and yes, some liberals too, wear BLINDFOLDS designed to allow them ONLY to see the distractions and false, rather than focus on the truth of any alternative position.

    Then don’t read it. I hate it when a comment is so weak and contributes nothing to the conversation started by the cartoon.

    Very good point. We spent so much time and (hot air) energy on IF they did it and not much on why they did it. It seems the former would treat the symptom instead of the cause which the latter is more likely to do.

    Which you commenting on must be even a lower level.

    Mind your own business. I’m telling the artist something for his own sake.

    When I want your opinion, I’ll give it to you.

    “When I want your opinion, I’ll give it to you.”
    Yep, keep claiming you aren’t a repubbie. Seems if you don’t like a comment or a cartoon you deign yourself worthy of criticizing it but if anyone dares to point out your error or arrogance or a disagreement with your opinion they are wrong and worthy of being ridiculed. Seems it’s okay for you but not for me or for anyone else.
    Sounds a lot like hypocrisy maybe?
