WAR PROPAGANDA by glogauer WAR PROPAGANDA by glogauer
Another little point of view on this awful illegal war in Iraq.

I am not anti-war or anti-anything...
I'm a positive person and I am just PRO-PEACE!

I don't like Saddam Hussein and his bloody dictatorial government.

If the U.S. government is a democratic one, why did it begin war in Iraq AGAINST THE WILL OF THE UNITED NATIONS AND IN SPITE OF ALL INTERNATIONAL LAWS?
This is a criminal act against human kind and democracy.

Violence is the last refuge of incompetence...

Comments welcome.

If you are interested to take a look at other political cartoons I made about the Iraq war, here are the links on my blog ACE CARTOON PILOT (in order of realization) :

How was it an illegal war. Congress passed a declaration of war on the nation of the middle east. Therefore it is by definition, while costly, it is a legal war.

We may be a democracy but the world isn't. Also while we are a democracy it is because the people of this country agreed to be one within it, however the people of this country have not agreed to be part of a world democracy and therefore is not bound by what other countries want(AKA the UN). We had every right to do what we did because there is no such thing as not haveing the right. The world is a harsh and cruel place and every one has the right to kill what ever and whom ever they want or need to make their way in it. Now society has articail rules on it, but in practice they still have no controle over people's actions. Rights can never be taken away, they can only be supressed, and no one has the RIGHT to life. They do have the right to fight to live though.

Erm, flying an airplane into a building is wrong regardless of how big or developed the country in question is.

That aside, the overly large majority in that part of the world does not belong to the "murder thousands of unbelievers" group.

Despite my general distaste for present-day America, I do place some stock in political accuracy.

I'm sure you've heard of a quaint if altogether obscured state called Alaska, yes? Well, in Alaska, and most people neglect to mention this in all the middle eastern hysteria, there lies an oil reserve that on record is officially one of the largest in the world. Thus far, America has overlooked this substantial energy source__encouraged vehemently by Middle Eastern lobbyists NOT to utilize this natural asset to America, but to instead adhere to their international commitments I.E. bailing out the political cess pool that is Iraq.

America isn't fighting in Iraq because they personally "need" anything. They're doing because it's economically/politically advantageous to do it.
In short they're fighting there because somebody with a loud voice and deep pockets wants us there. Having said that, do I personally have any qualms about us preserving our invested interest over there? No. Speaking from a practical standpoint, every nation has to get in bed with someone they'd just as soon see choke on their own vomit. It's just the sad reality.

If you ask me its a good thing we went to war in iraq !
For starters we were able to free an opressed people and are finishing the job now!
Here in the UK people ask why are we still in Iraq? I ask them why start a job you dont intend to finish?
When Iraq has a stable government and a self supplied milatary force we can leave but not till then.
Sure we out gunned them and our thecnology is far more advanced giving us the upper hand but thats war for you. During WWII Nazi Germany were the most advanced fighting force in the world. But this didnt stop us and we prevailed its not who has the biggest gun but who has the will to carry on. You only fail when you stop!

As a soldier, I find your comments highly offensive, we've served over here building dozens if not hundreds of schools and hospitals, and your highly over estimating the death toll of civilians most of the time its us whos getting shot at then we shoot back not the other way around you ungrateful ignorant unpatriotic biggot.

I'm curious...where is the relevance of this statement? If we had fired at every person we saw, we would be no better than roaming death squads. Would you prefer that it be akin to Rowanda, with people riding from village to village raping and pillaging? That's certainly what one could construe from this statement.

No, thats not what I meant at all. I was refering to this part of your comment - "most of the time its us whos getting shot at then we shoot back", I was agreeing with you. What I should of said is that if your under effective enemy fire, you have to put down fire too, hence "shoot or be shot" Sorry I shouldn't have been so crude, I hope I havn't offended you.

I admit I was a bit shocked when I saw your first reply - but I understand what you mean.
Most of the time I think it is ignorance, but to be honest I don't know. My dads really against me joining the military, he thinks all I'll be doing is dropping bombs and killing innocent people. Maybe he just dosn't understand what I actually want to do. It's frustrating. You shouldn't accuse someone if you don't fully understand the situation.

One problem with this cartoon. Iraq has much less oil than people think. Just because it is in the Middle East doesn't mean that it has oil. That was the reason Saddam invaded Kuwait. No, Iraq is the most strategically perfect nation there. If you look at Iraq geographically, whomever has a presence there can not only assist Israel very easily in a time of crisis, they can strike at Syria and Iran, which border Iraq. Plus, it had a weak, unsupported gov't so it was easiest to topple. We went into Iraq thinking more of using it as a place to stage a war against Iran.

Great art, and it actually illustrates the difference in conventional weapons and WMD between the US and Iraq. The US, Russia, China, and others have a huge stockpile of nukes that no one seems to wine about. However, I disagree with the idea that the US should not be able to declare war without the approval of the international community. The US Congress, and only the US Congress, has the right to decide when and where the United States will fight a war, and it will be a dark day when we cede our sovereignty and security over to some world government. That being said, I disagree with the War in Iraq and think we should get out immediately.

RoMoCoP The middle east has far more oil than the North sea. The North Sea is beginning to run out Which is why Britain is getting a pipeline built to mainland Europe. I agree with this war. On the ground alone the USA would not be such a big cannon but when the airforce joins that is when Iraqi army really loses out.
