The Onion creeps closer to reality with its headlines today, including North Korea Wondering What It Has to Do to Attract U.S. Military Attention and this brief item:
Saddam Enrages Bush With Full Compliance
WASHINGTON, DC—President Bush expressed frustration and anger Monday over a U.N. report stating that Iraqi president Saddam Hussein is now fully complying with weapons inspections. “Enough is enough,” a determined Bush told reporters. “We are not fooled by Saddam’s devious attempts to sway world opinion by doing everything the U.N. asked him to do. We will not be intimidated into backing down and, if we have any say in the matter, neither will Saddam.” Bush added that any further Iraqi attempt to meet the demands of the U.N. or U.S. will be regarded as “an act of war.
In other deeply silly news, Instapundit isn’t sure Osama really made the latest tape but is convinced by his urging of Iraqis and other Muslims to rise against the US that there is a significant connection between al-Qa’ida and Saddam. He, of course, ignores the part of the faceless recording in which the speaker urges Iraqis to rise up and overthrow Saddam.
He also apparently considers Michael Lerner (of Tikkun) to be deeply silly because he sometimes has to urinate. This clearly discredits the peace movement, whatever that is.
