ABSTRACT
The article presents a cartoon about Iraq war and its consequences. It depicts the chaos after the war. Wild flames fill a blackened sky. People yell and wave guns in the streets, surrounded by wreckage and toppled buildings. In the top left-hand corner, Paul Bremer, the U.S. administrator of the rebuilding process in Iraq, looks at the destruction below. Bremer has a grin on his face as he shows a man labeled Iraq what the man is about to inherit—a mess! The article questions that judging from recent news stories about Iraq, do readers think the destruction and devastation depicted in this cartoon are accurate?
