I did this cartoon back in 1996.
I was trying to explain what I thought should have been obvious to everyone. Bill Clinton was then the President, so I stuck him into the first panel. That set it up so that it seemed as if Mr. Shuldig (my alter ego) was explaining it to him.
Ten years of terror bombings later, and the West still doesn't get it?!
...And it's still Iran and Syria?!
