Tintin en Irak

Damn someone should translate this satire Tintin en Irak to english (okay there are some French politic bits too), it's hilarious, and really well done, thanks to Uche Ogbuji for finding this excellent piece ! People familiar with TomBoy adventure will appreciate the delicate choice of mapping between the comics characters and the real ones :-)

Update: Wouter Bolsterlee provided me with a ready to print PDF :-), enjoy !

War on Weather

Following the recent events and following the satiric tone of Tintin en Irak here is some of the steps I expect the Bush administration to take following the disaster in the US South:

  • raise a big War on Weather media drama with looping images of Katrina on all TV channels
  • fund a multi billion dollar research program with friends from the military lobby to find if clouds may turn into potentially dangerous weather and to finger print them
  • also fund the deployment of large weapons-like lasers along the US coast to vaporize potentially harmful clouds
  • assign the department of Homeland Security the extra task of fingerprint detection of clouds entering the US territory
  • try to invade Cuba based on the obvious fact that they have developped Clouds of Massive Destruction targetting the US
  • provide the oil industry pumping in the carribean with army support and cloud destruction weapons to operate quietly in the future

The good old techniques always work ...
