Creepy Caricature?

The image at right is Army Staff Sargeant Robert Bales, who is alleged to have massacred 16 civilians in Afghanistan.

It struck me that he looks exactly like the soldier I drew in my cartoon about winning hearts and minds in Afghanistan in light of the killings (below), before Bales’ identity was released.

Psychic caricature.  Creepy.

Mr.Cagle – are you aware that to a Muslim dogs are generally considered unclean – and a family would never keep one as a pet? I don't sense this was an intentional element of this particular cartoon, so I thought I would point it out.
