Blood, Sweat and Tires

More Americans have died at the hands of other Americans due to gun violence than American servicemen and women at the hands of extremist terrorist "insurgents", whose point of view on human rights and civil liberties you have little problem ignoring. Better to take the intellectually lazy, hackneyed tack of Vietnamizing a completely different conflict, fought for a much different purpose, with far more at stake than "containment" of the Red menace.

Belittling the sacrifice of the Union soldiers by comparing the current conflict in Iraq to the Civil War is akin to comparing Katrina to "chance of showers".

Funny how you and yours could give a flying pig about the street violence in Cincinnati, yet amplify and underscore every single casualty in Iraq as if the "insurgents" are driving the USA into the gulf and will somehow bring back Sadaam from the dead to cleanse the Middle East of the "evil Satan".

Celebrate Memoriall Day with pride, if you can unearth a shred of American decency from your callous cynical core.

You have often hit the nail on the head with your cartoons. None better than 05-25-07. Please keep it up!

This evolved wonderfully from your sketch - I was skeptical when I saw it in the sketchpad, but it turned into a wonderful cartoon. Kudos.

Rarely do I find you cartoons funny or even interesting, but todays is just ignorant. To suggest that any United States President is unaffected by the death of our military men and women is ignorant and wrong. But what should we expect from a bleeding heart Bush hating Democrat. Maybe you should have Michael Moore and Rosie help you pick your daily topics.

Grow up Borgman.

All of the above comments are the the result of great cartooning.

Thanks for keeping the hornets nest shaken not sitrred.

Then there is the chance that history will be very kind to President Bush in his war effort. This cartoon may be one of many used in textbooks to illustrate how the public and media felt about the President.

I heard someone say this in early 1966: "LBJ said if you vote for Goldwater - we will have a war in viet nam. Hell, I voted Goldwater and guess what, we have a war in Vietman.

The Republicans and their leader, George Bush, have gotten about 3500 Americans killed in Iraq and tens of thousands maimed in Iraq -- all for nothing. Those deaths and injuries are as pointless and tragic as a drunk driving accident or a drug overdose. That's the Republicans - they are weak on defense, confused, blundering and stupid.

It's Day 1546 of Bush's Blunder in Iraq - America Held Hostage to Bush's Stupidity.

A truly insightful depiction of our leader. My wife and I wanted to laugh, but the whole situation is just too sad. Another wonderful comment on the current occupant.

Republicans= weak????? If it were up to the damn liberal pinko commys in this country, we wouldn't be fighting the terrorists, and battling to stay free in our country (after 9-11).

Borgman, time and time again you never fail to take cheap shots at our president. I can only believe that you are sketching these controversial hate cartoons to raise a stir because you've obviously run out of ideas- Nice cartoon going into Memorial Day weekend...

Anything less than a scathing critique of the person who blundered into Iraq with 9/11 as an excuse, and with just enough troops to fail, would be a diservice to all our wonderful people being maimed and killed daily. Disgust with this current president is fueled with a concern, anger, and sorrow for all those he's put in harm's way -- God bless 'em all.

fight them over there before we have to fight them in aisle 3 at kmart. right...

Way to nail it Joseph, though you forgot the 700,000 (should be by now) dead Iraqis, and the about 27 million (not including the about 2 million who've fled) whose country has been turned into a living inferno since 2003 . . .

Better we return the country to the Sunnis and their unique brand of "freedom" ??

US needs to win this fight, establish coalition government, get the hell out, and kill terrorists at every turn ! Military hamstrung by poor political leadership , I agree. Objectives worthy, achievable, and vital to retaining balance of power in region and maintaining Israeli security.

Why were so many silent when Bosnia and Serbia were invaded and occupied. Was Sadaam no less a war criminal then Milosovic ??
