At the fence wanting in?

Good morning, Netizens…

The nutcase at the fence

While it appears cartoonist David Horsey hit the nail on the head on this caricature of Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, much the same could be said for an entire cadre of shadowy terrorist organizations around the world, each of which are, like Iran, at the fence aspiring to obtain nuclear technology capable of building a bomb.

Perhaps Ahmadinejad is much closer to obtaining nuclear weapons than we may believe or know. Of course, I might be wrong.

Either way, he is at the fence looking in on the nuclear disarmament talks, perhaps wanting in, but probably not if he is successful at building a bomb. After all the work and the sanctions against his country, why would he want to disarm?


There is a place for them…

Good morning, Netizens…

A few months back the word “demagogue” was defined and explained as the word of the day. I believe today’s cartoon from David Horsey carries that definition forward and gives us two different images upon which to base our understanding of the word.

Furthermore, David Horsey comes up with what seems to be a simply wonderful method of dealing with two such vitriolic men of our times. Yes, they are actually quite fitting for one another when you stop to think about it. In fact when you consider that Ahmadinejad has nuclear weapon aspirations that, until just recently, were hidden behind his bluster and Holocaust denials, and Gadhafi who persists in denying his country had a role in the terrorism, including the bombing over Lockerbie, Scotland, they are about matched for one another.

However, it is my belief that neither man deserves to be world critics of any other form of government, including our own. They simply have too much baggage of their own.

Put them someplace where they no longer can pose a threat to the free world and let them preach their obscene gospels to one another. That is where they belong.
