| WANT TO BE A STAR? APPLY NOW!
|Following on from the entriely succesful liberation of Iraq a vacancy has arisen for a third member of the 'axis of evil'. Candidates will preferably be tinpot dictators who, although evil, will not pose any serious threat to the armed forces of the US and UK. Candidates will be expected to talk big whilst acting small. Previous work as a CIA operative is desirable but not essential.
Our generous package will offer a show trial upon completion of the job, possibly followed by several years of free hospitality or alterniatively and immediate termination (of you and/or your contract).
Candidates will initially be give interest free loans to buy US and UK weapons.
Penalty clauses may be invoked if these are not being used in line with our unequal opportunities policy.
Please send a stamped and abused prisoner to

Although they don't meet all of the criteria, may I offer up some possible candidates?
In no particular order...
Aruba (our boys need someplace nice to invade for a change)
Anyplace ending in "stan"
rex, the biggest "stan" of all is Hindustan, why not go after it instead of wasting time on small fry? FYI, "stan" is a neutral term analogous to "land":
venezuela has decent weather, and they are not playing by washington's economic rules, so they are a logical choice
How about Zimbabwe - Oh, I forgot it doesn't have any oil - Oh, well back to the drawing board!
just an observation, NOT a complaint
now that there are two of you, it seems there are far fewer postings.......
Canada and build a big ass military base to protect OUR oil sands.
Personally...gotta be Switzerland, beautiful scenery, great watches, wonderful chocolates. Now where did I put those strategic resources?
A rose is a rose...
A very shrewd observation. In my case the lack of posts are due to tiredness and for Michael it's more complicated than that.
On the possible applicants for the position in the axis of evil, must say I agree with Graeme.
Those Venezuealans are shaping up to be evil-doers of the highest order.

|Arse of the month
The inaugural 'Arse of the month' award goes to our very own Scottish First Minister Jack (Joke) McConnell. He seems to spend a lot of his time sucking up to english politicians and yet it appears they don't even know his name. Follow the link to see..
