This is a very stirring comic today: Married To The Sea: Oops, that’s not funny.
In case anyone can’t or won’t click on links to images, here’s the text set atop a city skyline:
“2021: A small group of rogue Americans hijack an airplane and fly it into the Burj Al-Arab, in Dubai. The United Arab Emirates spend the next five years invading Canada and torturing its citizens, eventually leaving over 80,000 dead.
Oops, that’s not fully.”
You know, I have thought a lot over the years about how to logically support the invasion of Iraq, mostly because I think it’s important to really understand the thought process on the other side of a debate. However, parallels like the above, while imperfect, really underscore how absolutely ridiculous it all is. At the end of it all, how can any sane person justify in their own minds that killing hundreds of thousands of innocent people is acceptable, for any reason?
