Accidental Two-fer war

World War III? Hmm. O.K., but, remember, nobody gets hurt.
Robert Weber had this published in The New Yorker in March of 1999... incidentally during the height of the dot com boom.  WWIII seemed a long way off back then.  Actually it still does. That was, however, around the time of the "Wag the Dog" movie/book.so maybe that's kinda what he was tapping into?

Meanwhile Gahan Wilson had this similarly-themed cartoon in The New Yorker in January of this year.  The similarities are interesting.
