Great "Get Your War On" about Afghanistan

Which, as Ted Rall points out, seems to be the war that cuts the wheat from the chaff. If you remember back to the days after 9/11 and the debate and deliberation to go to war with Afghanistan you'll recall that there wasn't any legal grounds for it, it violated international law on several fronts, was punitive against the people of Afghanistan for something they had nothing to do with, and came at a time when the predicted harvest for the winter fell below the level needed to feed people. Afghanistan's population was relying on international aid for food, aid that was disrupted by the war. Thankfully the harvest turned out to be greater than expected, but if the predictions had been correct not only would the Afghan people be bombed and their country invaded but they would have faced mass starvation as well. Not that the Bush administration cared about any of that.

Here's the comic:
