Despite the fact that there is a war going on, this is still funny. Inside an article about the Coalition advance on Baghdad and Basra, we have the apparently non-satirical statement
Iraq denounced the attackers as criminals and appealed to the United Nations to halt the invasion “unconditionally.” [emphasis added]
So, having spent the last 12 years proving how easy it is for some decrepit third world country to make a mockery of any UN enforcement effort, Iraq is calling on the UN to stop a hot war sponsored by the dominant world power? Reap what you've sown, buddy.
