Faced with its utter incompetence, which has wrecked the economy, tens of millions of livelihoods, and with a COVID-19 lockdown that has proved an utter disaster, the Modi regime in India is doing the only thing it knows how to do – distract attention, this time by manufacturing a border crisis with China, as it last did in 2017. It will not succeed, despite the efforts of the regime’s pet media channels and paid army of online trolls.
I pilfered the title of this cartoon from the Colonel Cassad site. It was too good a pun to pass up.
Today’s cartoon is dedicated to all those wonderful, wonderful people who are always as eager as gulper eels to swallow any and all Western propaganda about the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, the more ridiculous the better. See, I care about all of you!
A scrimmage in a Border Station-
A canter down some dark defile
Two thousand pounds of education
Drops to a ten-rupee jezail.

With thanks to Jeremy Parker, alias not3bad, for giving me the idea.
