Information Operations: Cartoon Edition


That is the most brutal and effective political cartoon I've seen in a very long time.  Now, the question for those of you who are interested in studying information operations, PSYOP (or MISO) is... why?  (PSYOP and IO may not be aimed at American populations by the military; but what I'm interested in here is more an explanation in general of what makes an attack of this type effective.)  

It's not a trick question, but the answer is worth pondering all the same.  We'll discuss in the comments.
