KUWAIT ‘HANDS’ CARTOON – Mubarak, Obama Try To Jumpstart Middle East Peace Process

February 7, 2011

While the crisis in Egypt continues, this cartoon from Kuwait illustrates how international politics used to work: a US financed dictator got the honour to play a ‘media-designed role’ as a Middle East peace pigeon.

Meanwhile the chaos in Egypt continues: the first talks with the Egyptian oposition have results in a new round of protests, and the US continues to struggle with it’s role as a major financer of one of the world’s long lasting dictatorships today – in 1981 Hosny Mubarak became President of the Arab Republic of Egypt.

Cartoonist: James (Al-Jarida, Kuwait, August 19, 2009)
