EDITORIAL CARTOONS BY DR. SEUSS

Not many people know that besides being a famous author of children's books Dr. Seuss also made editorial cartoons during World War II. There is a whole book with the collection of them entitled, Dr. Seuss Goes to War by Richard H. Minear. Simply put they are awesome and many of them apply to what we are facing today. Dr. Seuss was actually a Democrat but he was one back when Democrats still believed in national security.

My friend found the website that has them. It is a goldmine of great cartoons that would totally apply to the appeasers of today. Check it out! You can click on the different topics and see the cartoons he did for each subject. My only wish is that all the anti-war protesters from this past weekend could see these and be able to "get" how important it is not to appease the enemy.

Um, you do understand the differences that exist between WWII and the US led invasion of Iraq, don't you?

McCoy, more to the point, do you understand the similarities? In both cases we had a brutal dictator intent on slaughtering a huge portion of his citizens; determined to conquer surrounding nations, completely indifferent to the opinions of other world leaders.

One of the most significant differences, if you want to go that route, is that the US didn't sit back and twiddle their thumbs, a la England, France and the US back in the 1930s.

And lest anyone worries that I am diminishing the impact of the holocaust, please allow me to point out that I am of German Jewish descent. My husband's family probably is not, however as his Grandmother's entire family were murdered by nazis, I can't exactly ask them about the particulars of their heritage.

Bush administration rhetoric aside, significant differences in ability to do existed. Nice to see some advocating that the US become the thought police of the world. How very 1984.

"the US didn't sit back and twiddle their thumbs, a la England, France and the US back in the 1930s."

Seems the US missed the boat on both counts. How bloody unfortunate. Saddam never was never anywhere close to, nor would he likely be a modern day Hitler. When you're willing to drop the FOX News-esque hysteria, please let reality know.

"And lest anyone worries that I am diminishing the impact of the holocaust, please allow me to point out that I am of German Jewish descent."

An obvious non-sequitur. What you may claim on an internet board as a line of decent doesn't make what you say any more or less accurate.

Are there any actual facts that you'd wish to discuss in this Iraq invasion = WWII line of reasoning, as you've yet to address the problems with it.
