After Saddam's secret weapons of mass destruction finally revealed themselves at a press conference in an attempt to besmirch Bush, floods of footwear carrying long range Scud missiles have started to take out major cities throughout the western world.
First to go was Rome in Italy, which disappeared off the face of the planet, after someone mentioned how smelly someone's feet was near the Coliseum. Soon after, there was a flash about a thousand feet up in the air and the whole city disappeared underneath a downpour of sandals.
Next to suffer a trainer catastrophe was Miami in Florida. The one time haven of Disney Land fans and old age pensioners was wiped out by a salvo of three long range scuds, one filled will Reeboks, one with Nikes and another with Adidas.
Other cities to suffer footwear attacks include Paris France, Stockholm, San Diego USA, St Petersburg Russia, Adelaide Australia, Inverness Scotland, Mexico City and Birmingham England.
Finally giving into defeat, the US has removed Saddam's body from its grave and revived it with secret alien technology. All western forces have now been removed from Iraq and the formal dictator is now back in control of not only that country but the entire middle east and all of its oil reserves.
Strangely, on a side note, the economic crisis has ended as military budgets have been redirected to putting people back into work and stopping them from being evicted from their homes.
