Toy Soldiers- a George W. Bush Cartoon


cross-posted at Left 'Toon Lane

Does Bush even know the difference anymore?

From "Shock and Awe" to the "Surge," the whole war in Iraq has looked more like a child playing with toys than real war planning. We went in with a "Plan" to smash 'em up, to blast 'em with all our stuff. Then, you see, the game would be over. Maybe time for a nap, maybe Mom's calling for lunch, but everybody would just stop playing.

But they didn't.

And now we have the "Surge." Really stop and think about that for a minute. We're having a "Surge," but we're running out of soldiers. Does that sound like war planning, or like a kid whining "Mommy, PUH-LEEEAAZE get me another bag of soldiers, PUH- LEEEAAZE!?"

George W. Bush. Most powerful man in the world. Ten year old. And a pretty bratty one at that.
