With all the BS going on in the U.S. that could be made fun of, why does National Memo run so many editorial cartoons dealing with foreign nations?

“Once all the Germans were warlike and mean,
But that couldn’t happen again.
We taught them a lesson in 1918,
And they’ve hardly bothered us since then!”
Tom Lehrer, “The MLF Lullaby” 1965
* MLF, or Multilateral Force, was a plan to put “small” tactical nukes under the control of local NATO field commanders from multiple NATO countries, including West Germany.
