The Week’s Best Cartoons: Afghanistan Edition

By Alex Falco (Cuba)

These editorial cartoons aren’t easy to take in. But, cartoonists don’t shy away from difficult topics, which I would argue is for our benefit. Here are some of the cartoons about the unfolding situation in Afghanistan that stood out to me. Be sure to check out the final three images, from international artists.

These three images were shared by editorial cartoonists I follow on Twitter and they were so beautiful, so haunting, I wanted to share them with you.

  1. Wow, these are so powerful. Thanks for sharing. Question for you? My sister lives in CA. Should she vote NO on recalling AND vite for one of the democratic candidates in case Newsom does lose?

    • Glad you liked the cartoons. As for the recall vote, definitely vote No. She can vote (or not vote) on the 2nd question. The thinking is, if Democrats can’t turn out enough voters to stop Newsom’s recall, we won’t win with Question 2.
