The first ever Axis Of Evil games began last night in Tehran, with a stunning opening ceremony that concluded with the burning of the American flag.
Over ten nations arrived in Iran with their sights set on Gold, including Cuba, Zimbabwe, Belarus and North Korea, as well as host nation Iran, who beat Libya in the run up the contest, for the right to hold the Games.
The sports being contested at the Games are as diverse as the nations who play them, ranging from Regime Building and Coup Leading, to Uranium Enrichment and WMD Hiding, all of which the competing nations are thought to be "expert" at.
The contest has been figure of much speculation for the past few months, and nations the world over have perpetrated the most heinous breaches of the Geneva convention in order to gain entry to the contest. Among those turned away were Canada, whose carpet bombing of Barbados was seen as evil, but "not evil enough", while Angola were disqualified for wiping out every single member of their population in over enthusiastic Nuclear testing, thus leaving no one to represent them at the Games.
Fidel Castro spoke to the press yesterday, giving his thoughts on Cuba's chances at the Axis Of Evil Games: "We'll probably go down like the Hindenberg in a rainstorm" he trilled, "but it should be bloody good fun!".
