G.I. Jihad

As if underwear bombs, homemade AK47s, and filming speeches in caves weren't enough, Al Qaeda has found a new innovative way to express their beliefs and expand their influence... Cartoons. The CIA had done some digging on our Middle Eastern misfits and found a number of animated videos depicting young men in fatigues and headscarves, brandishing assault rifles and RPGs while fighting off "evil invaders" (presumably the USA). Supporters of Al Qaeda say that it glorifies the exploits of Al Qaeda, such as heroic actions of the Mujaheddin, raids, armed clashes, and of course, executions.
Now US officials state this as a "despicable method in an effort to brainwash children"... But then i ask, isn't making all children at school stand up and pledge their lives to a flag the same thing? Now in no way am i a supporter of Al Qaeda, but I do prefer their approach of using cartoons to spread their influence, rather than invading cities and having mass executions.
Now as some of my followers may know, im not a huge fan of the "War on Terror" because of the ridiculous spending and never ending goal, but in the end, the USA did accomplish something media worthy: Our very own spot as Cobra Command in a distorted middle eastern version of G.I. Joe.
Good Job Mr. Bush.

  7. Pledging everyday is a form of brainwash, but no one actually puts their heart into the mourning pledge at schools.

  10. you are absolutely right. and the pledge of allegiance is merely one example. propaganda and brainwashing are commonplace in the US and I would expect nothing less from the US government than to hypocritically complain about another country doing what we do best. no accountability whatsoever. ugh. good post!

  11. These are real cartoons? Cool. I agree with you on the whole war on terror thing. To them, WE are the terror they are having a war with.

  13. I agree with you. How can we Americans be so hypocritical when engage in the exact same thing? All I ever see in cartoons now is American propaganda and such.

  14. Interesting you mention the flag like that...I was brought up in a religion which does not condone the act of pledging your allegiance to the flag, but rather to God.
    Wasn't aware about this, neat post.

  16. brainwashing is bad in every form. even the subtle (well, maybe not so subtle anymore) form of advertising and schooling in the western civilization.

  17. propaganda and indoctrination is practised by every country, some countries are just more subtle than others

  18. real off topic, I know, but did anyone else notice that the soldiers on the side look like south park people?

  19. Your point is well made sir - every organisation with an agenda to push, will push it - the thing you raised about the Al-Quaeda cartoon being damaging and brainwashing to children is so poignant because the American patriotism and propaganda machine is so very well oiled...hypocrisy much? Well spotted and well said mate.
