Washington, We Have A Situation Here

Look what I found on the editorial/letters to the editor page of today's Tokyo Shimbun. A cartoon seemingly submitted by a pseudonymous reader!

I think scores pretty high on the "Whoa!" scale.


It's like Ted Rall Does Tokyo.

Can't see it too well? Here is a blowup. It's called, "Steppingstone"

Ambassador Roos is probably going to have to write a note...if he has not done so already.

Too well-drawn and funny to be one of mine, dang.

That's a fabulous and quite honest reflection of the situation.

This is the website of the young woman cartoonist who is the source of this "letter to the editor." It is not the first time it has appeared.

Gekkou, you are ignorant. Seems you and much of the world have forgotten what happened in New York on 9/11.

Plus, if the US removed all military from Japan, Japan would have to provide for 100% of their own defense. Far more than the cash they show spending in that stupid cartoon.

Plus, Okinawa is not used as a stepping stone for Afghanistan.

Plus, why not have the cartoon show how the Taliban murder and ravage their own people. So why not have the cartoon actually showing US forces defending the Afghan people from the vicious Taliban WHICH WOULD BE AN HONEST REFLECTION OF THE SITUATION.

Tornadoes28: Okay.

It's still a fabulous and quite honest reflection of the situation.
