Duck And Cover

Folks, they're getting ready to nuke Iran. For real. Back in the day there was a drill that school children had to practice in order to prepare for the eventuality of nuclear war breaking out - it was called Duck & Cover (58 MB mpeg video). In a similar fashion, today we may very well need to simply put our head between our legs and kiss it goodbye because the ramifications of nuking Iran are astronomical. Can you see Pervez Musharraf being overthrown in Pakistan, Iran retaliating against Saudi Arabia and/or Israel, and a few million Iranians flooding over into Iraq to fight us there? How would China react to all of this? Invade Taiwan? Nuke our positions in Iraq? I don't know how it will turn out but one thing I know with certainty - it will be bad times for everyone on the planet. Just when I think it can't get any worse.

What we need (OK, what I need) is some comic relief, because the only solution to this problem is not to be spoken aloud let alone put in print (I have no desire to see Gitmo up close and personal) so here are some comics to lighten the dark and dreary mood.
