Countdown to WAR!

From theonion.com, parody site without peer:


“U.S. intelligence confirms that, even as we speak, Saddam is preparing tanks and guns and other weapons of deadly force for use in our upcoming war against him,” Bush said Sunday during his weekly radio address. “This madman has every intention of firing back at our troops when we attack his country.”

In Reality:

U.S. officials said Monday that there is “recent” and “fresh” evidence that Iraq is planning to use chemical weapons, perhaps against U.S. forces or Iraqi citizens.

…use against US forces when they attack Iraq, this means.

You can’t even parody this stuff anymore, it parodies itself.

This is a sorry chapter indeed in America’s long history of suck-ass foreign policy.
