Says one to the other: "I'm not saying we were talking out our ***. I'm saying, let's not get hung up on principle!"

The other says: "Shut up and push!"

Perhaps its time to re-draw some lines on the map?

Political cartoons are the best - a nice summation in an enjoyable package! (How many things can you say that about?)

Only problem is that the US is in North America and Iran is not being attacked by ISIS. ISIS is burning itself up looking for that promised land with continual support replenishment while Iraqi Sunni tribes reassert themselves. I keep wondering when the violent fundies decide to hit oil pipelines and facilities in a coordinated attack when they don't get their promised land.

A cartoon is worth a thousand editorials.

Why is ISIS the enemy of the US? Because we are absolutely addicted to the oil? It sure would clarify things if people who believe that, and therefore base their arguments on it, would just admit it. Then we could debate overt imperialism. Even Cheney attempts to say that "the world" needs the US to be "pre-eminent" -- even if "the world" doesn't agree. Why don't they just say, America will do what it wants?

Gosh, OR.... that'd be indefensible!

But honest !

No one outside America is fooled. But it would make for healthier domestic politics. Republicans would look less stupid if they stopped claiming "The United States has never been imperialistic."

But.... you miss my point - that would be indefensible. (any port in a storm)
