US president George W Bush who waged a largely unsuccessful war on Iraq finally found the weapons of mass destruction he was looking for ever since US led troops landed up at Baghdad in search of the elusive weapons.
"The weapons were size 10 and were coming straight at me." said Bush at the press conference after successfully dodging the shoe-attack from Iraqi TV journalist Muntader al-Zaidi, adding "I've been finally vindicated. It was a tough war that sadly took over a million unfortunate lives but I'm happy that we have at last found the dangerous weapons that we had suspected were hidden in this country.
"I was worried that my two-term presidency was being largely seen by everyone as a colossal failure due to the inability of coalition forces to find WMD in Iraq. It comes as a huge relief to me that I've personally discovered the dangerous weapons before bowing out of office"
At the press conference, Bush claimed that the success in finding the weapons of mass destruction was result of Iraq's liberation from the tyranny of Saddam Hussein and its conversion into a democratic and free society. "The discovery of the WMD is a sign of free society. All free societies are built on openness and transparency. Once Iraq was liberated from the suffocating clutches of Saddam and became a free society, it was only a matter of time that the dangerous shoes should come out in open. I'm glad that they were discovered before the end of my term. Else Obama would have claimed credit for the successful conclusion of Iraq war" joked Bush
It was a close call for Bush as he dodged the missile-like shoe attack by a whisker. According to security experts at the site, Bush was very lucky, since the attacking journo, Zaidi used wrong sized shoes to attack Bush. "Had the first shoe been size 9, it would have been slightly lighter and would have travelled faster giving Bush lesser time to react and dodge it. If the second show was of size 11, it would have hit Bush harder because of its extra weight and could have proved fatal had it made contact with the president's head considering the fact that his head is quite empty." said Mukhtar Navasi, head of Iraqi security agency.
