That’s right! Get those kids out of Grandma Jelly’s liberal brainwashing readitorium and into an underground bunker to wait safely for Jesus!

Your cartoon is inaccurate, the US cold not possibly “take all they have learned from the global war on terror” and do anything. This is because they have learned nothing, they have also forgotten nothing.

If it’s literal, there’s been loosening of restrictions on military persons coming back and how soon they can teach.
Or, you can look at it as the police state in re kids: there’s cops in schools now, cops handcuffing kids in the youngest grades, the militarization of the police:giving them bigger automatic rifles (I’m not au currant on gun words and don’t want to), and NYPD has hollow point bullets in guns,too. Kids are arrested on the street, going to and from school and on the NY subway.
Kids go from about 7 districts in NYC into state prison - called “the prison industrial complex” by some. See http://www.blackagendareport.com
This is October. See the website of a good group, the October 22 Coalition Against Police
Brutality, http://www.october22.org/ They are having marches all around the country on October 22.
There are the war games by the US military for kids online. There’s the mall near Philadelphia where kids can “pretend” to sit on some (nasty) war machines and being propagandized into “signing up” by recruiters. See archives of http://www.democracynow.org
The Leave No Child Behind demands access to kids unless parents opt out.
Save the kids….Start by teaching them to be critical.
