Saddam borrowing dope from Dutch weapons inspectors?
Charles who runs LGF
found this gem of an article
in which the 'tache claims that Sean Penn has confirmed that Iraq is entirely free
of weapons of mass destruction. Nice going for a guy who's been there for a couple of days, spent most of the time in his hotel room and wouldn't know a heavy water plant from a Badoit bottling plant. Questions must be asked of Kofi - If it's this easy why did we bother sending, at great expense, all these S&M experts in their leather UN gear?
I initially assumed the article was a not particularly sidesplitting satire..but against the odds its genuine. The paper in question is the Iraq Daily - trumpeting the truth to the world since the last editor got executed. Its a brilliant combination of contradictions, with most articles trying to stress that Iraq is peaceful, tollerant and loving while reminding people that anyone who says otherwise will be slaughtered and the enemies of Iraq will die screaming under the iron boot of the armies of Allah.
In one particualarly controversial volte-face Tariq Aziz has claimed that Allied forces will be greeted with "bullets not flowers" in this story
. Bit of a change of tactics from last time then, when it was mainly white flags that greeted the Allied troops..and indeed the Italian journalists, unmanned spy planes, stray camels, stray cats and a well fed and bad tempered gerbil that they tried to surrender to. (OK maybe not the animals - I've obviously been affected by drinking from Saddam's Well of Truth). Iraq Daily is a definate addition to the daily google searchs - a must for those who want the righteous truth free from the corruption of the infidel aggressors (may Allah strike them with the flatulence of a thousand camels etc etc ad-infinitum.)
Incidentaly, in related news the UN announced that Kylie will be inspecting the Iranian nuclear facilities and that negotiations to scale back the North Korean nuclear program will be conducted by a multi-natonal group of Teletubbies.
