Matt Bors: Fill in the Blank, Middle East Edition

There’s a country in the Middle East that ardently pursues its own interests, trying to court suspicious Arab nations into its corner. Towards these aims, the country pursues a nuclear program under the banner of “ambiguity.”

No wait, there’s actually two of these countries — operating against each other. Their rhetoric, notes my friend Matt Bors in this excellent cartoon, is interchangeable.
