Lane Tracy: Cartoon’s message not clear

September 11, 2013 

Unclear cartoon

I think I understand the point that the Aug. 31 cartoonist is trying to make, but the cartoon is seriously flawed. Comparing World War II with the conflict in Syria is ridiculous. Of course we didn’t just send messages in WW II. Our nation was in the middle of it. We are not in the middle of Syria’s civil war, and messages are about the only thing we should be sending there.
