Two middle-eastern bigwigs confront each other; both wear robes with sashes, and tall dark hats, one with a turban on the base of it. In the background are several soldiers, two with pointed helmets, one holding a shield. The title is "At war as at war;" under the cartoon is a caption: "It's a superb coup!" and one of the leaders says to the other,"The enemy arrives...you are overwhelmed by the number...you are going to give in...I arrive to help you...I put the fire to the powders...and you make everything blow up." (Virginia K. Anderson 04/10/95)
