The Hundred Acre Kill Zone

Baghdad Burning

In her blog Today, Riverbend relates that a Baghdad child thought one of the LPDs (Launch Platform Donkeys) looked just like the donkey in "Winnie Dab-doob." I thought this might need explaining, so I sat down in my Thoughtful Spot, and discovered that Winnie Dab-doob is Winnie the Pooh in Arabic. Making the donkey's alterego noneother than Eeyore.

It begs the question though, will Tribune Bremmer have Eeyore added to the deck of cards?
