Iranian Student Radicals (1980)

1980 Dry Bones cartoon - The Iranian students Are Really Something ... Wait 'til they get their degrees!
Today's Golden Oldie was published in 1980.

The Iranian Students had progressed from taking the U.S. Embassy to flexing their muscles in other venues, and against other Western targets. Back then, the cartoon mused about what would happen "after they got their degrees".

Well, twenty seven years have now gone by. Ahmadinejad and his fellow Iranian student radicals are now all grown up and trying to build atomic bombs.

The world didn't stop them back then, and it doesn't look like it'll stop them now.
