The hat. Of. Evil!
The mustache. Of. Evil!
The clothes. Of. Evil!
How can we be losing the War on Terror when all the evil people so considerately dress like villains?

I made a post about this comic before, but I just deleted it because my commentary was a bit lazy.
In stead, lets ask a simple question: who is this?
Is it Mahmud Ahmedinejad, the president of Iran? Nope, he has a full chin beard, and usually wears a suit.
Is it Ali Khamenei, or one of the religious leaders of Iran? Nope,  they dress in black robes with black turbans, and have long beards. In  fact, interesting bit about Islamic hygiene is, that men are expected to  grow a beard, but keep their mustache short. Saddam Hussein was in fact  a Ba’athist; a political ideology that’s a mix of Pan-Arabic  nationalism and socialist ideals. It is also secular in that while it  gives great value to Islam, it doesn’t impose it upon non-Muslim arabs.
“Hat like Gadhafi” is a weird assertion, since he was known for flamboyant, changing, African clothes. His headgear in particular was a Kofia, which is worn in Eastern Africa, mostly in Swahili-speaking areas. Not in Iran, the similar headwear is called Taqiyah, and it stands higher on the head, and is usually decorated differently than a Kofia. And the way Heller drew the hat, it looks more like a Turban.
As for Bin Laden, he just dressed in traditional Arab clothes, but  was also known to wear a camoflague shirt on top of it in his video  appearances.
What I’m trying to say is, that it’s kinda dick-ish to lump people  together by the mode of their dress, and doubly so if you can’t even  tell the difference between different fashions, or know who you’re  supposed to draw.
