Visitors to my site will note my cartoons on international affairs are few and far between. My cartoons on the federal, local issues are far more abundant in numbers. Occasionally non domestic cartoons will creep in when domestic issues have become dull or just plain tired. I don’t think it’s unreasonable to declare that most people are fatigued with anything having to do with Quebec’s election 5 days ago. The latest big national story is the RCMP coverup, which already has my eyes glazing over and having me think, well haven’t we been down this road before? R.C.M.P. = Y.A.W.N. – nobody around here is talking about it.
So my mind was set on the recent debacle between Britain and Iran which is like a good old fashioned cold war like escalation of good against evil. I have a feeling the Iran thing will be hanging around as long as the RCMP thing — months.
Speaking of international cartoons two of my old galleries have just been updated. The old September 11 gallery has now been amalgamated and showcases stuff drawn related to the War on Terror. The Iraq Gallery has also been updated.
