    I’m so paranoid, I don’t believe anything I say.

    Who told you to say that, Ujean?

    “In fact, forget we said anything about a court. Just pack for Gitmo.”

    I was thinking more the super-secret, all of our meetings, testimony, deliberation and decisions are classified FISA court.

    So some government entity wants to talk to Llewellyn, but doesn’t want to tell him what it wants to talk to him about or where they want him to talk about it with them? This is gonna be good!!!

    Compliments of the NSA (not so astute)!

    I was thinking more of Kafka’s “The Trial” in which the person is tried by he knows not whom for he knows not what. VERY unsettling.

    Every once in a while, you run into an older cartoon that’s just as timely now as it was when it first appeared

    Or, even more so.

    …and this is WHY Llewellyn is the way he is. Things like this happen to him.

    re: stella s

    Doubt it. Llewellyn is presumably an American citizen and he hasn’t been engaging in combat that violates the four 1949 GCs.
    .
    The Third 1949 Geneva Convention extends no protections whatsoever to those who fight on the battlefield without distinctive sign that can be seen at a distance. The GCs give specific guidelines. Distinctive sign can be a uniform, a hat, a badge, etc.
    .
    The reason was so that combatants wouldn’t hide among civilians like spies or the muslims do. Not only did it try to protect civilians, but it tried to prevent such nonsense as “civilians” firing on our troops or UN troops with mortars, rockets, machine guns, etc. and then it being claimed that they were “innocent civilians” such as has been popular in the media of the last two decades or so. Under the treaty, such a person can be tried by military tribunal or summarily shot on the battlefield as a spy or sabateur and are not considered POWs, having no rights whatsoever.
    .
    Cowardice definitely has a price, no? And so it should. It takes no courage to hide out among the innocent. It does take courage to put on a uniform.

    And what does that have to do with this comic? Nothing, just you pontificating again. Go get a forum of your own.

    Are you equating all Muslims to spies and saboteurs? If not, you might wish to clarify your comment above.

    Llewellyn is a citizen of Greater Llewellyn, not the U.S.

    Given that the strip was written during the Bush administration, this is about their prosecution of the war on terror, which really wasn’t that unlike the current president.
