Teh Funnies

Another brilliant cartoon from Moir today.

And talking of funny pictures, isn't it hilarious that a whole bunch of major US newspapers carried a photoshopped version of those Iranian rockets being fired yesterday? E&P has the rundown of the unexplained fiasco: did one of four rockets mis-fire? Why did some agencies get the correct photo with only three missiles? Does it matter?

More here.

It's ironic that Obama and McCain are now screaming about how Iran should not have access to such missiles, particularly with nuclear capabilities, given that the new US weapons deal with the Czechs is apparently what scuppered Russian support for UN action against Mugabe. The USA's desire to confront evil despots is obviously tempered by their continuing need to destroy Moscow at one minute's notice. It's all about priorities, I guess.

And no, that's not an endorsement of Russia's position either.
