More Effrontery

The Iranian government is protesting a new cartoon published in the German newspaper Der Tagespiegel depicting Iranian soccer players as suicide bombers. The cartoonist has garnered the customary death threats but I didn't need to tell you that.

I wonder where the cartoonist got such a crazy notion? Perhaps it was here or here.

Does anyone take what the Iranian government says seriously? Just keep your (National)guard up at all time.

I am with you jp. It's coming and I'm afraid people will be caught off guard. As the saying goes "we have to be right 100% of the time" to be completely safe. It will only take one suicide bomber at one mall or restaurant to open up the eyes of those who refuse to believe that safeguards such as wire tapping of international calls with suspected terrorists are needed (and respect that the president has special power during war time to do such things). Of course the the usual melody will play when we are attacked again...Bush didn't keep us safe. I find the real frightening thing to be those citizens of this country who are willing to compromise our security to take Bush down.
