GI Joe – a vision of the "War on Terror"?

Ever since Mikey was born, I’ve been watching Saturday morning cartoons with him.  I know he’s too young to watch them, but I figure if I make that a tradition, when he’s older, we can watch them together.  I was watching “GI Joe: Simga Six”, the latest version of the whole GI Joe series.  It made me start thinking of how long GI Joe has been trying to stop Cobra.  I went to the Internet Movie Database and Wikipedia and looked up GI Joe.  The origin in the 40s.  So, for over 60 years, GI Joe has been trying to stop this “terrorist organization” and they still haven’t yet.  In 60 years, will the United States still be fighting the “evil terrorists”?
