Smurf Village obliterated

Smurf Village obliteratedA 25 second film, being screened in Belgium as a public service announcement shows the Smurf village, obliterated by an air raid. The final frame of this short video put together by UNICEF reads: "Don't let war affect the lives of children."

According to the advertising agency behind the campaign, Smurf was chosen as it was felt that "the best way to convey the impact of war on children was to tap into the earliest, happiest memories of Belgian television viewers."

Just wondering, what cartoon strip would they choose, if they were to similarly tap into the earliest, happiest memories of American President and convey the impact of war?

In case you are interested in watching the carpet bombing of Smurf Village, get the video here.
