WINNING HEARTS AND MINDS
If I were an Iranian who didn't like my country's government -- y'know, one of the disgruntled pro-Western types the neocons think might someday overthrow Ahmedinejad and the mullahs? -- and I saw this cartoon from Investor's Business Daily (which is not for the insect-phobic), I wouldn't think, "Gee, isn't that nice -- some Americans truly understand the danger posed by the evil men who run my country." I'd think, "This American thinks my whole country is a sewer, occupied exclusively by cockroaches."
Then again, one big chunk of the cartoon's target market likes that interpretation just fine.
UPDATE: Cartoon link fixed.
