    Another excellent role reversal, like in Lysistrata. Will it help? No, folks will feel offended and outraged instead of taking on board this satire. They aren’t like that, they’re the fine, moral upstanding citizens of the world. They have niceness on their side. And will miss the bloody point.

    So, why oh why, do they hate us?

    That’s why we WROTE the International Law. Unfortunately, they won’t obey it. Kind of like we did with the Brits in 1776.

    I suspect Anwar al-Awlaki’s extrajudicial execution, despite being American, made no impact on Americans because he isn’t named John. Or even Andrew. Anwar…Andrew…Anwar meh, shoot the bugger.

    Dubya’s BS line…they hate us because of our military presence there. I’d rather not spend my tax money so we can play with our toy soldiers in the sandbox.

    That message ain’t “hidden”. Rall can be subtle and sophisticated, but here he hits us between the eyes with a 2X4.

    Really? How can you still believe that? As Osama bin Laden said, if they hated our freedoms and dissolute Western values, they’d be attacking Holland like nobody’s business. And yet…why aren’t they? It’s not like the US is even close to being the freedomest country on the planet.

    Mr. Rall,
    As long as the top capitalists have as much freedom as possible, it means the rest of us do as well. They told us so, so it must be true.

    You forget about Theo van Gogh?

    There are small numbers of Muslims who are violently, extremely conservative. Idiots like lma assume they represent mainstream Muslim thinking, just like idiot Muslims think Terry Jones represents most Americans.

    What many of the commenters here just don’t get, is that Bin Laden did not turn on the US until we decided to leave troops stationed in Arabia after Gulf War I. They don’t seem to be able to understand that we would not like having foreign troops stationed in our country. Global terrorism is fueled by interference, not religion. The countries that use military means to force their will on others are the ones that get attacked. Northern Ireland, Chechnya & the Kashmir make that obvious.

    We should support progressive, moderate Muslims on causes like women’s rights, education & employment. Occupying countries is a stupid way to do this.

    “Not to worry much about because the drones are only used against those who can not defend themselves.”
    Oh. In that case, carry on!

    “People are missing the hidden message in this toon. Obama is using Drones to Kill Americans, that is the message in this toon.”
    Only if the American’s are not from Peoria IL!

    I’m forced to admit that this is one of Ted’s best efforts. If he keeps this up I’ll have to stop taking him seriously. 8^)
