The 9/11 cartoon that never was

I drew this cartoon in 2011, on the 10th anniversary of September 11th. But after I submitted it to the Mirror, I thought better of it and submitted another instead.

Amazingly, even a decade after the event, I thought memories and feelings were still too raw for me to make the rather harsh observation in the cartoon. And that observation is that, even with all the time that has passed and all that has happened since, flowing from that tragic, horrific day - the wars, the deaths of thousands more innocent people - none of the parties involved have learned anything.

Today, with the drum beat of war once again growing over Iran, that is exactly what we should be reflecting on.
