The Ice Planet, Hoth. Though freely admitting that it had absolutely nothing to do with the terrorist attack on Charlie Hebdo last week, one French military official is, nevertheless, calling for an invasion of Iraq anyway.
“If zee Americans kin do it, zo kin vee,” said General Pierre Petite Pe’Pe of the French Liberation Front. “It iz entirely pozzib’al zat zere are veaponz ov mass destruc’ee’oon zee Americans overlooked ven zay vere in Iraq zat may still poze zee threat to zee peoplez ov France. If zee Americans kin launch zee invaz’ee’on ov Iraq, because zay vere pizzed ovv after 9/11, zo kin vee after zis tragedy. It iz, af’zer all, only fair to allow us to do az zay did. Vee, too, vill tell zee United Nat’ee’oonz to pizz ovv if zay tellz uz not to do zis. Vive la France!”
