Cox and Forkum

Good cartoon today from Cox and Forkum: cf-040704.gif They also do a bit of the backstory behind each cartoon and today's comes from a news item in The Times of India reporting on an Agence France Presse story: bq. US marines bomb Fallujah mosque US marines pressing an offensive in this Iraqi town west of Baghdad bombed a central mosque on Wednesday and killed up to 40 insurgents holed up inside, a marine officer said. What caught my eye was this comment from the head of the Marines First Division, General James Mattis: bq. "If they barricade themselves inside a mosque, we are not going to care about the mosque anymore than they do." Yes - more faster please! Posted by DaveH at April 7, 2004 10:44 PM
