Bush Whacked

by | 17th, November 2003

‘IN his spare time, US Secretary of State Colin Powell and his wife Alma apparently like to educate young girls in Washington about the virtues of sexual abstinence.

Go Tony

It is a pity that he didn’t teach President Bush to “just say no” to the half-baked plans to invade Iraq emanating from the Pentagon and his vice-president’s office.

But if the US and its allies thought Iraq would roll over like a £20 whore in a sleazy hotel room, they were mistaken.

They haven’t even managed to find former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, who yesterday gloated about the miscalculation on Arabic TV station al-Arabiya.

“The US thought and made others think that they were going on a picnic to occupy Iraq and destroy their weapons of mass destruction,” the Times quotes him as saying.

“The evil ones now find themselves in a crisis and this is God’s will for them. The aggressors have no choice but to leave our nation.

“The evil ones will not be able to occupy and colonise Iraq.”

The evil ones seem to have realised this as well, with the Independent suggesting that the United States is ready to agree to put its troops under international control.

Javier Solana, the EU foreign policy chief, says decisions along those lines will be taken in the next few days.

“Everybody has moved, including the United States because the United States has a real problem and, when you have a real problem, you need help,” he said.

All of which only serves to remind us that President Bush’s controversial state visit to Britain starts tomorrow with what the Telegraph says is the biggest anti-terrorist operation ever mounted in Britain.

More than 2,000 armed police will patrol the centre of London, RAF jets will patrol the skies above the city and large parts of the capital will be closed off.

However, US anti-Bush polemicist Michael Moore urges the British people to make their opinion of his president known.

“It’s up to the British people to do their job in letting the American people know the British people don’t support this war,” he tells the Independent.

“It has to be done in a graphic way, in a physical way; it can’t just be said. It has to be dome with the images that will be sent back to America because the American media will be there with Bush.”

In other words, teach the White House the virtues of sexual abstinence before they fuck up in another part of the world.’
