President Bush is reeling from yet another blunder which may just cost him his job. For months experts doubted Iraq's military might and supposed WMD's, to date no WMD's have been found and now, secret satellite pictures have been uncovered that clearly show the real status of the Elite Republican Guard.
According to sources close the president, George W. Bush signed the presidential orders authorising the war in Iraq after seeing this picture. The president knew that the WMD's were hidden and was hesitant about going to war but once he saw the strength of the Iraqi army, he felt that he had no choice but to authorise war.
Unfortunately, he mistook this 'photo' left on his desk of toy Arabic soldiers on sale on EBay for a satellite picture of the Republican Guard getting ready for battle.
The president said that "he thought these were satellite pictures, that's why the people look so small", he went on to say, "they looked really dangerous and America could not stand by while these deadly assassins prepare to do harm to democracy and freedom".
The defence secretary Donald Rumsfeld said that the President should not be held personally responsible for this mistake and that Prime Minister Tony Blair should also share some of the blame.
"Tony Blair must accept total responsibility for taking the US into war in Iraq; he did not tell the president the picture was of toys when he left it on his desk".
Downing Street sent a formal complaint to the Whitehouse and CC'd the UN and also blind CC'd (BCC'd) Kofi Annan after Donald Rumsfeld's comments because they say President Bush knew these were toys and that George W. Bush promised to bid on the items on EBay on behalf of Tony Blair because the prime minister did not have an EBay account.
Neither Tony Blair nor George W. Bush were available for comment directly.
