Bush: saviour of the Middle East

Throughout the Middle East, people are beginning to riot to protest against the dictatorships which are endemic in the region. In Libya, Bahrain, and Yemen, there are large public demonstrations against their oppressive rulers. These have been largely influenced by the successful demonstrations in the neighbouring countries of Tunisia and Egypt.

A spokesman for ex-president George Bush Junior said: "It's clear. They have seen the example we set in Iraq, where our troops successfully attacked the evil dictator Saddam Hussein and set up a peaceful democratic state which has been functioning perfectly for many years now. And now other Arab countries want a piece of the action."

"Of course, not all Middle-Eastern countries are lucky enough to have a dictator evil enough to threaten the security of the region, which of course would necessitate an invasion by Western forces. Most of them would not be able to get UN approval for an invasion anyway. So they are having to take matters into their own hands. I hope that the whole Arab world, from Morocco to Iran, eventually follows the Iraqi method, and become peaceful happy McDonalds-loving states just as George Bush Junior predicted."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
