  1. Ummm yeah sorry I just gotta say that this cartoon isnt really that good and also is problematic on top of that. First off there are factual errors First of which is that Iran won the Iran-Iraq war?! Thats news to me, I guess it is all how you define "victory" or "winning" but I am pretty sure both countries suffered grave losses and in fact the US & the West came out on top in the end (and got what they wanted). The other thing is the "homo erotic obsession" comment…really? Attack bibi till the cows come home but leave his sexuality out of it, useless adjective…he is a evil murderous scum bag, whether or not he jerks off to pictures of dudes plays no role in that…

  2. Oh boy oh boy, I’ve been waiting for a comment. C’meah you big fat stooge, I wanna kissa ya…Where’s Shemp and Larry? Why aren’t they commenting?

    Ok, here we go…this cartoon, like most political cartoons, is considered “SATIRE.” Mine in particularly are sarcastic, sometimes crass, sometimes offensive, and I certainly don’t pull punches…or make apologies for my comments or views.

    Also, this cartoon reflects my views as in…me…and not Kabobfest. With that in mind,

    1) Iran vs Iraq: Iraq started the war. I believe that Saddam had it in his min that he wanted to take Iran’s oil fields. Well, Iran wasn’t having it and kicked his ass. I call that a victory in Iran’s favor.

    2) Yep, I’d say that Bibi has an obsession with Iran. I’m not speaking sexualityy of course, although its implied. Again….”SATIRE.” Y’see, there’s this thing called a creative license and I’m quite fond of using mine liberally.

    However,Iran is all the guy ever talks about lately. In every single conversation he has whether its about domestic or international policies, settlements, the occupation, the UN, going to Washington, taking out the trash, stoppying by KFC on the way home…whatever. IRAN and the so-called threat of “radical Islam” are always on his mind. His agenda does seem racist.

    Bottom line is: Israel has nukes…in fact, they’re at the Dimona nuclear facilty in the Southern Negev desert in Israel. An Israeli nuclear scientist named Mordachai Vununu confirmed it in the 1980s. At the time they had 200 nuclear warheads. How many do you think they have in 2012? Did Israel decide to stop building them? I doubt it. So are we saying that it’s okay for the white Jewish man to have nuclear weapons but its not okay for the brown Persian man to have them? That’s racist, no? As mentioned in the comic, Israel refused to sign the treaty on nuclear disarmament. 1 of 3 countries in th world. The other 2 are India and Pakistan whom are always at war with each other. Don’t you think that these 3 are the bigger threats to world safety?

    P.S….nyuck nyuck nyuck…I love my critics more than I love my supporters. You made my day!

  3. Iran definitely won the war. Sure both sides suffered losses but if still…Iran won that conflict hands down.
    Also if made you go to the trouble of posting a comment and starting a conversation, then it probably did what it was supposed to do, no? In that respect, the cartoon is successful…

  4. What is not in this discussion is the body count of dead and slain people from the southern portions of both these countries who are in essence much the same in language, tribal heritage, history, religion and culture.

    Millions died. At the hands of despotic figures funded by the worlds only slave trading, indigenous genocide perpetrating, xenophobic democracy.

    An utter tragedy.

  5. Well, the United States isn't the only slave trading, indigenous genocide perpetrating, xenophobic democracy…because Israel is also a slave trading (especially sex slave trading) indigenous genocide perpetrating xenophobic "fake" democracy masquerading as a 1st world country when really all it is…is a 3rd world country supported by donations from religious zealots and other ethnic cleansers around the world. Both countries…including the United States which happily instigated the Iran Iraq war, are to blame for the deaths of millions around the world and now they're willing to kill millions more for what may or may not exist….

    • kinda like they did in Iraq when Bush said that Saddam is a great threat because he has nukes and other chemical and biological weapons…and in the end it was revealed the the intel he got was fabricated and fake…just to justify a personal vendetta G Dubya had against Saddam. In that case, Saddam was hung, his sons were murdered, as were millions of Iraqis and thousands of American soldiers. Not to mention all the murders that they financially supported by the likes of Blackwater and other Rambo-wannabes, and the murders that their own G.I.s conducted and they covered up…only to later be revealed by heros like Bradley Manning, Julian Assange and others.

      Was that worth it to? Iraq is now a lawless wild east where people are killing and blowing each other up constantly…no law and order whatsoever and since the U.S. left they basically opened the flood gates for radical militants with personal agendas to stake their claim and rip the country apart even further.

      • One thing is for sure, Israel really does use the playbook of its western financier. Look at Iraq today. Can we risk an Iran that is as lawless and violent as that? Seems to me like its a recipe for disaster. All the work the U.S. did in Iraq didn't make the Iraqis love them. They still have a venomous hate for Americans and the Iranians will no doubt have a venomous hate for the Israelis…So hey….let's throw the entire MENA region into chaos as long as Bibi and O'Bomber are happy, right?

  8. Growth of Iran is not making happy for many western countries and US, and it’s a very open fact the leaders of those countries will agree. The war activities against Iran are a part of stopping Iran to become financially strong.

  19. I have always enjoyed satirical comic strips. This one is well drawn and fun to read to a certain extent. I think after a while it dragged on. Also I am not sure who the person is suppose to represent so it's a little confusing.
