Troy Brownfield apologizes for Obama's talking to Iranian president

Brownfield, a comics writer whose works include Zenescope's Grimm Fairy Tales and used to write for Newsarama and the now defunct Shotgun Reviews, said:

I don't seem to recall Iran's leaders and Muslim fundamentalists ever apologizing for the disaster they caused, and even an Iranian filmmaker named Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzi has said that current autocrat Rouhani cannot be trusted. Iran is still a totalitarian Islamic autocracy, even under Rouhani, and still building nuclear weapons, so Brownfield's limp apologia is just a lot of BS.

And unlike Iran, Japan democratized themselves post-WW2 and doesn't run itself based exclusively on religion.

Ye gad, are comics writers really this thick? As you note, Avi, Japan turned itself around after its WWII defeat by establishing a thriving capitalist democracy. On the other hand, even discounting the 1979 hostage crisis, the country remains a supporter of radical Islamists who cause terror around the world. Not to mention, they continue to develop nuclear capability while at the same time constantly declaring Israel to be worthy of extinction.

Exactly, Hube. Japan didn't become a terrorist haven after WWII... it became a thriving capitalist nation and in the 1990s I believe they were considered a powerful economic rival of the U.S. Correct me if I'm wrong.

As for Iran, they haven't changed at all during the 34 years since the hostage crisis. Not one bit. They develop nuclear power and want to wipe Israel off the map.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
