Ongoing tensions between the United States and the Russian Federation escalated today when President George Bush made the claim that the Earth's Moon seemingly belonged to him.
These claims are apparently not unfounded. For quite some time now U.S intelligence agencies have been searching for conclusive evidence that the Moon does indeed belong to America.
President Bush, who is privately said to be "disgusted" by the mis-information fed to him on the Iraqi's capabilities prior to the March invasion, and has also indicated privately that he would never have attacked such a "good mate" as Saddam had he known the "Truth", has apparently in the last month decided to take on the role of "intelligence" gathering himself.
A Whitehouse spokesman today made the astonishing claim that on President Bush's recent visit to Moscow, the President actively sought to seek proof that the Moon belonged to America.
Fleischer continued "The evidence supporting this claim continues to mount, as the Presidential cavalcade approached the Kremlin, the president bravely, and beyond the call of duty, stuck his head out of the Limosine window to have a look for himself at the sky's of Moscow. There was clearly no Moon to be seen"
On arrival in Washington today the President held an urgent press conference to address the issue.
'Ladies and Gentleman, after spending the last three days in Moscow, it is clear that we are now facing a more serious threat than previously anticipated. As i hung from that Limosine window, i quickly realised that the Russian's had been lying to us all along. There is no Moon over Russia, come visit my ranch in Texas, thats where the moon lives, its always been there."
President Putin has reportedly responded "Back off Bush, that Moon money is mine"
