The Last Twelve Days After Christmas

PROTECTED IN THE BUBBLE

From December 25th, 2019 to January 3rd, 2020, a mere ten days, we went from “Peace on Earth, Good Will to Man, Happy New Year” to a targeted drone assassination in a sovereign country on the other side of the world. It is now twelve days after Christmas and chants “Death to America” are reported on news stations around the world.

The world awaits Iranian reprisal, the collateral damage from Trump’s “decapitation strike”.

Reinforcement military personnel rushed to the Middle East before they even had a chance to say good bye to family and loved ones. Weren’t we supposed to be leaving the middle east?

GOP presidential re-election campaign strategy?

Weren’t Putin and that Iranian general buddies?

Is it true Don jr. and Eric are enlisting and volunteering for combat duty?

So many questions … so much unknown ….

StarvingCartoonist is a former ICU nurse that has worked at numerous civilian, military, and veteran Intensive Care Units across the country for better than three decades but has been sketching, drawing, and cartooning since he first picked up a crayon in kindergarten. Dabbled with political cartooning, writing, and general illustrations but the bread and butter came from health care. Recently left professional nursing to concentrate on camping, hiking, nature, the outdoors, trees, trails, and peace of mind. Love a campfire; rather watch it than TV. Avoid bureaucracy, career ladders, ladder climbers, and hero worship at all cost. Evenings spent with a good book, reading until the book smacks my nose when I doze off. Generally up at sun rise, listen to the mourning doves, put the coffee on, and play it by ear the rest of the day.

One thought on “The Last Twelve Days After Christmas

  1. Yes, this is a big fat Christmas present to the already obscenely wealthy weapons contractors, at the expense of the taxpayers for no good reason. Yes, that money from unnecessary Iraq II could have paid for the health, education, and welfare of every American citizen. And yes the money wasted on this other unnecessary campaign, following the unnecessary trade war that raised prices for everyone and cost American farmers their markets will be yet another deficit ballooning boondoggle. And yes, this is more socialism for corporate America as children are sent to die for orange potato head.
