Anti #Mubarak cartoons featured in #Egypt newspaper Al Ahram

@Amrixor, who kindly made these scans, has commented:

“Guess what !! Ahram Journal had published a Carlos Latuff cartoon in 20Jan2012 before the 1st anniversary of 25Jan revolution!!
The irony dramatic part: Ahram Journal is considered in Egypt as the SCAF & any Upcoming-Governer’s Journal.”

#Cartoon series (2001) – “All American Violence”, the making of spree killers in U.S.

I was born surrounded by “armed citizens”.

I learned that [a gun] means strength.

I see guns on movies all the time. Seems fun to shoot people.

I play games where I can kill many creatures, including humans.
People are teasing me in school. With all my background, I know exactly how to deal with them.
