It's really not a coincidence at all, unless of course your mind is susceptible to seeing conspiracies everywhere you look.
1.) The "Twin Towers" Card
- It's actually not the twin towers at all, just two buildings positioned closely together as one would find in any large, metropolitan area.
Furthermore the labeling of the drawing as a 'terrorist nuke'
is completely wrong on two levels : 1.) Planes brought down the twin towers, and 2.) A nuke would destroy an entire City, not just put a hole in a building.
Finally, building bombings have been around since the 1980s (probably even earlier, though I'm too lazy to do the research right now), so it doesn't exactly take a psychic to predict that terrorists would continue to bomb buildings as a means of killing civilians.
2.) The Pentagon
- Falls into the category with the last bit of info about building bombings above : It should come as no surprise to anybody that terrorists like to blow important sh*t up, and it gets no more important than the Pentagon.
- It's not Obama. It's just some multi-cultural looking guy in a black suit, standing at a podium. Lots of people wear suits and speak at podiums - That doesn't mean they're the President. Furthermore, if the creator of the cards meant to imply that this was our President, why not put a white house seal on the podium or on the curtain behind him?
I'll tell you why : So people who feed into this line of thinking would see these rather vague cartoon drawings and immediately jump to conclusions about them being some kind of revelation or prophecy, that's why.
You'll excuse me if I don't immediately proclaim that the guy who sells 'Super Munchkin'
and 'Ninja Burger'
card games is a psychic or prophet.
