So the Joes are in South America to do something involving a coup. This being G.I. Joe, Cobra, Destro, a fruit company cartel, and other sinister forces are at work. But in the midst of all that, our boys pay a visit to the embassy.

Happy Memorial Day everyone, and remember to check for angry gun-wielding soldiers before you do any flag-burning.

Wow. I actually remember this from the old Action Force/GI Joe back up strip in Marvel UK's Transformers comics.

Even as an 8 year old, the gung-ho patriotism of it grated badly.

Though I would like to see just how many of his own bones he'd break by trying to fire that .50 cal whilst holding it like that.

Wow. I am astonished at how wrong this all is in about twelve different ways and how much it bothers me. The freakin' flag is hung the wrong way! And why is it on a wall? What, the Embassy forgot to requisition the usual flagpoles? Why is the Ambassador still here at all if there are looters in the building? Where the hell are the Marine Guards and why aren't they stopping the looters? Or are they all on the roof with the Ambassador and last staff out waiting for a copter like they should be? Does this embassy not have anti-vehicle barriers or is Roadblock's truck designed to drive over anti-tank measures? Are they seriously going to make an Ambassador ride bitch in that Baja jeep full of Joes? Is Roadblock seriously rescuing a flag when he should be rescuing living people?

Knowing too much is not the other half of the battle, I guess.

I'm pretty much pro-America, but there is enough wrong in this particular instance of "patriotism" to choke a blue whale.

Curiously, I heard about an incident today at a protest in Chicago against the Israeli raid on the aid convoy. They were outside the Israeli embassy, Somebody set an Israeli flag on fire, over the objections of many other demonstrators, and burned it up.

This comic is a perfect analogue of the situation.

How would you feel if an Israeli commando had appeared with a machine gun and threatened the protesters' lives?
