My Cartoons about Gadhafi and Libya

Here’s my newest cartoon about Libya and its crazy leader, Moammar Gadhafi. The U.S. complains about being broke, and we’re already engaged in two separate wars that have cost billions, yet here we are once again leading the charge against a power-crazy despot unwilling to step down:

People in foreign countries like to talk badly about the United States, but whenever it comes to a U.N. Resolution or an incident that requires force, we always seem to be the ones leading the way, bearing the weight of the engagement:

It’s not as if Gadhafi doesn’t deserve to be taken out. The power-hungry leader turned his weapons on his own people, killing innocent civilians in a last-ditch effort to remain in power, despite country-wide protests that followed the example of places like Tunisia and Egypt:

But none of that matters to Gadhafi. It doesn’t matter how much blood is shed, or who’s shedding it, as long as at the end of the day, he’s still in charge:

Oh well, as long as the (defense?) contractors keep getting richer, I guess all’s well, huh?

I would say, we need to show military as well as political muscle to take on Ghaddaffi, himself a Colonel, Ahmadinejad, himself an Islamic gardist, but as Michale Moore put it, USA and Europe are not broke, we can put the necesssary war- and recession tax on Oil-, Gas-, Arms- and Financial gigants, and still be able to give the poor and middle class a tax break.

If we put the “necessary war and recession tax on Oil-, Gas-” who do you think will be paying the taxes? The consumer. And if you think prices are bad now, wait until those extra taxes are added in. Maybe you’re one of the ones who doesn’t have to pinch pennies in order to (barely) survive, (like Michael Moore), in which case I can see how this idea appeals to you. But on behalf of the rest of us who are really struggling in this DEPRESSION, I would like to invite you to keep the (bad) ideas to yourself.

Oh, and great series of cartoons Mr. Cagle!

Fortunately, there is a difference between Iraq, and Libya. We were not lied to, the facts misrepresented, and with no boots on the ground, it will not last 8 years. Sometimes we do have to act to save lives, and stop a despot. Otherwise, it makes us no better than someone walking by a injured man lying on the ground.
