Seoul, South Korea - President Kim Dae-Jung, president of South Korea and hitherto a strong ally of the United States, went on national televisions today to try to bring to an end the crisis which has gripped the country over the past seven days. President Kim Dae-Jung assured a worried nation that the clones made of George W. Bush during his trip to South Korea last year would not replace the front line US troops presently occupying the demilitarized zone - the buffer zone between North and South Korea. Instead the clones would only be used for Home Guard duties in the capital, Seoul.
A worried President Kim Dae-Jung assured his fellow countrymen that, "Bushes will not be our only line of defense."
The New York Times first broke the story last week that President George W. Bush was cloned in February last year during a state visit to South Korea. While the official reason for the President's visit to South Korea was to strengthen trading relations between the two countries, it has now emerged that his trip was in fact a clever cover for the cloning operation he underwent.
Democrats initially feared that these clones would be used in the run up to the Presidential Elections in November to allow the President to meet every single voter in the US personally. But it has now emerged that the clones will only be used for military purposes and as such should prove ineffective for most productive tasks.
