Smoke 'em Out



Smoke 'em Out
Originally uploaded by youplayawhat.
I found this cartoon in the editorial pages of the Czech press. It ran in Mladá fronta Dnes, 14 April 2003, page A8. The caricatures are by Filip Škoda. It features ex-premier Vladimír Špidla speaking to George W. Bush, presumably at a tram stop:

Špidla (to Bush): "So you say you want to smoke the terrorists out of their holes, huh? We will not be able to help you much with that. We have very strict anti-smoking laws here at the moment."

This appears to be an anti-war cartoon, but it's combined with a statement on Czech smoking laws (or perhaps an anti-anti-smoking laws statement?). Unfortunately the post I wanted to link to about the laws has disappeared (it seems the blog has become a defunct pornography advertisement...ah the blogosphere), so you will have to take GlobalVoices's word for it. There was also my post on the dog situation.
