Interesting, but I’m not sure whether the author is alluding to the much-talked
about amputation justice from the Taliban or to the less-talked about damage
inflicted on civilians by the US of A.

It is a great cartoon. Unfortunately it betrays an ignorance of Afghanistan and her
people. Anyone who knows that area and has studied the history would know that
an Afghani is a unit of currency, not a person from Afghanistan. Someone from
Afghanistan is an Afghan. Unfortunately a person from Pakistan is a Pakistani. The
press, even the supposedly learned pundits keep calling the Afghans Afghanis, so
those who live in the American media orbit alone never learn the proper terms.

I wonder how Perry and Bachman feel about Afghan citizens keeping their thumbs.
The opposable thumb is a potentially dangerous weapon. I am not at all certain that Obama realizes the danger he may be putting the U.S. and its brave men and women (regardless of sexual orientation) of the armed forces in by allowing these terrorist thugs to retain their thumbs.
It is truly a scandal.
