Idea for a New G.I. Joe Cartoon

Surely, you all remember that after school, animated celebration of all things Cold War that was G.I. Joe. G.I. Joe was a US special forces unit, oddly made up of specialists who could all only do one thing (one guy could fly a tank, one guy could pilot a helicopter, they had a whole aircraft carrier and only one Navy sailor...)

They fought Cobra. Cobra was an international terrorist organization determined to rule the world and it had countless people who couldn't shoot straight and who would run away if you shot near them. They were led by the hooded terrorist mastermind, Cobra Commander, who The Joes could never, ever capture, no matter how many battles they won (and they won all of them.)

I think the G.I. Joe cartoon needs to be brought back.

The Joe's are sent to Iraq to fight the insurgents. But, all the while, they're menaced by the specrtre of Cobra Commander, the terrorist mastermind who is still at large and who has never even once visited Iraq and who's organization, also still at large, has nothing at all to do with Iraq.

What do you think? Or is that premise too wildly fantastic for a cartoon?
