1952 Comic Predicts Modern Day US Middle East Policy

Published

Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullaah,

Hat-tip to the original website (and to Br. Nadeem, for pointing out the website) for bringing to light this extremely insightful 1952 comic. The comic, posted below, is brilliant and speaks for itself. Quoting the website on which the comic was found:

Cartoonist and all-around seeker of unusual truths, Jay Kinney, says:

“Attached is a page from T-Man comics #3 from 1952. I just happened upon it by chance and – Holy Smokes! – all was revealed. We can now grasp the origins of the Bush administration’s foreign policy! It was all there in T-Man #3, 55 years ago! Perhaps Cheney read this comic in his youth and just bided his time until he was in a position to actualize it in real life.”

    Neat. And here I was thinking they were trying to follow the Empire from Star Wars from 1977. My prediction is 25 years off.

    The racism would detract from the enjoyability of the cartoon, were it not for the fact that T Man concealed a pig under a window-sill ;)

    Comedy gold.

    I like how the guy is explaining the pig being thrown at him. I wonder if the other 2 guys cooked it up afterwards and had a porkfest.

    I always knew there was truth to cartoons. If only Batman, Superman and Spiderman were true (and Muslims)!
