Our local paper has always paid to have a good cartoonist. He's equal opportunity, he'll skewer anyone!

I guess I will then.
Just my opine, but we can argue about whether a war is justified or not, how or why it was fought BUT when war becomes a way of trying to be humorous I for one take offense. See, I have a son fighting in a war right now, lost many a relative and friend in war. Those that came back were changed forever.

In synopsis: there is no humor in war nor should there ever be. War is ugly as it should be. Otherwise it would happen more often.

Political cartoonists do what they do to make a point and to present their opinion in drawings rather than words. I doubt very much they view war humorously.

Harry,

I don't think he's making fun of war. He's making fun of politicians that he sees as bound and determined to go to war, regardless of the cost to families such as yours.

I believe he is right on. There will probably be two more wars. One against Iran and the other against North Korea. It's either that or we stand by and watch the maniacs proliferate nuclear weapons.
