Generation Gap

Tojo, Il Duce and Der Fuhrer , Hizbullah chief, Assad, Ahmadinejad : Dry Bones cartoon.
Watching current events is like watching a crash scene in an eighties movie. Everything seems to be happening in slow motion ...but moving towards its inevitable conclusion.

A new set of "Axis Powers" has arisen. And those of us who are old enough to have seen the movie before are doomed to sit through it again!

And for the under-seventy crowd, "Tojo" was Japan's dictator during WW2. "Il Duce" was Benito Mussolini, the Fascist dictator of Italy during WW2 ... and "Der Fuhrer" was Hitler.
