Southern Lebanon Exit Door

Date: October 14, 1984
About this cartoon: Israel, having moved forces into southern Lebanon, now was faced with the dilemma of how to pull its troops out again without giving up the territory to hostile Syrian-controlled forces, which is more or less what did occur sixteen years later.

Cartoonist Steve Greenburg's remarkable prescient of the Israeli dilemma in South Lebanon vs. Syrian craving for a "Greater Syria" that would include Lebanon.

About this cartoon: After 15+ years of occupation in southern Lebanon, Israel forces tried to withdraw while leaving the allied South Lebanon Army to maintain order. The withdrawal turned into a quick chaotic pullout followed by a quick takeover by Hezbollah forces over the ineffectual SLA, becoming a humiliation for Israel.
Noteworthy: My first published editorial cartoons were in 1974, so the Vietnam parallel came to me quickly for this cartoon.
