After the tackiness of the Iraqi “Most Wanted” deck of cards (and the complete nonsense that was every US news organization always reporting what card any Iraqi official was when apprehended as if it was important), others have gotten into the act. There is a Russian deck of American figures featuring Bush administration officials, family members and cronies. There is also a French deck of ‘most dangerous’ US leaders. The guy behind the French cards is most likely a nut, since he claims that no plane hit the Pentagon on September 11, 2001 and that the US military planned the attacks. I do agree with the statement of the French nut when he says:
“I found it completely indecent to present a manhunt as a game,” said Thierry Meyssan, the man behind the French deck. “We thought this card game would allow us to … explain why we consider the government of George Bush a threat to international security.”
I got very sick of hearing about this deck of cards all spring, think it was downright disrepectful to be throwing these things around an Islamic country, and that it trivialized and made jaunty what should have been a gravely serious matter. I hope this tweaks the noses of the assholes responsible for the original deck.
