Apparently the Joint Chiefs of Staff object to this cartoon:
Perhaps they didn’t bother to read the name on the end of the bed, “U.S. ARMY”. Obviously this isn’t intended to represent a maimed veteran; rather, it’s a reflection on the current state of our armed forces.
The real “problem” with this particular cartoon is that it’s so damnably effective, much to the chagrin of the Joint Chiefs and the Bush administration. Recruiting is getting tougher, “stop-loss” is hitting its limit, and every day more people are realizing that Bush got us into this Iraq mess without a plan.
