I think Paul Krugman's column in the NY Times captured best the lunacy and viciousness of the European Central Bank's monetary policy. They are all for bailing out the banks, the very criminals who got Spain into this pickle, but won't lift a finger for the working women and men who were and are the innocent victims of the crisis. Instead the technocrats and plutocrats who love them patronizingly talk of the need for the peones to embrace austerity as if its the path to spiritual transformation.
The butcher Assad has been slaughtering women, children and men for the past year and a half, and the Western powers are only now expressing outrage? But do not fear; Kofi Annan, the great enabler of the Rwandan genocide of 1994, tells us we have reached, and I quote, a "tipping point."
My Cartoon about our fellow cartoonist in Iran, Mahmoud Shokraiyeh who has been sentenced to a flogging with 25 lashes after drawing a cartoon that showed Arak MP Ahmad Lotfi Ashtiani wearing a football jersey. I hope we as a community raise awareness and draw like we all did for Ali Ferzat in Syria. Peace.
