I don't know if it was a good idea to market it to little kids but there is always a market for oddball cards. They make cards of serial killers as well as the 1990 pro set and topps cards of sadaam were pretty good sellers. Hell if anyone has a 1990 sadaam card that they want to trade I will be glad to take it from you. Seriously.

Haha I meant more like who thought it was a good idea to make this a coloring book for children?

If they want to make terrorist cards, go for it, but don't make them geared towards kids.

Calling Assange a terrorist is a massive joke. If he counts as one, then why no cards of Deep Throat or Woodward and Bernstein?

I want to know why they are no cards in this set of former US politicians if you know what I mean.

I also found it odd that Assange was lumped in with actual terrorists.

I'm thinking because there are various degrees of terrorism and many would consider Assange to be more of an internet terrorist

Its typical political manipulation. They label Assange a terrorist so then anyone that says they support him can be told they support terrorism. Hoping they can lessen the support against him and make it easier to bring him in and prosecute.
